I have installed “react-native-asset-resize-to-base64” from https://github.com/TBouder/react-native-asset-resize-to-base64. And I am doing Installation (auto). on windows 10. After running react-native link react-native-asset-resize-to-base64 command it doing nothing. As I am expecting it will say something like linking is successful.

You may have to detach to use this library, see the documentation for that here: https://docs.expo.io/versions/v19.0.0/guides/detach.html#content

@jimmylee Thanks for the reply, Do i need to write the native code for this? Actually I am new in react native and also I don’t know the native code.

Not every library is compatible with an Expo project, so if you want to use certain libraries you’ll have to detach. If you’re curious about which libraries you can use, check out https://native.directory

Thanks for the reply!
BTW this is not what I needed. I was looking for the package who convert my JPG image to base64 data.
For now, I detached the app and using this package https://github.com/wkh237/react-native-fetch-blob
and its working fine now.
