Is there any Expo alternatives to the existing Svg implementation?
It seems the existing one is not really vector based and draws a bitmap instead of just dealing with vectors. And that becomes a memory problem on Android (not iPhone) because of the way they implemented their memory limits by throwing an error making the app using the current Svg application crash.
The guy doing the Svg component thinks the error is drawing big Svg’s. Currently I can draw something 5 times bigger than the screen. But it is variable. Not like a fixed number of pixels or RAM being used causing the error.
Are there other options NOT drawing a bitmap on Android? Or is there any kind of willingness from the Expo team to have a fully functional Svg implementation?
I previously used WebView for making charts, but as Apple is closing that one down I’m trying to do something similar just coding it myself.
