Running Expo Server with ejected project.

I really liked Expo and the server that runs with expo start. It has lots of features and information to make development easier.

My question is, is there any way to link the server to my project and emulator when my project is ejected? I am running the app using yarn android or yarn ios.

Thanks!

Hi @bombillazo

You might want to look into using a custom dev client, which I think is basically what you’re looking for.

The other option is this:

But Custom Dev Clients, EAS Build, Config Plugins etc. are the future.
