What does "This API only works with standalone builds created with exp build." mean?

#1

How would develop the app if it only works with standalone apps?

OR

Does it mean that I can develop the functionality using the expo client but if i eject from expo it stops working?

#2

@omorhefere

Can you provide more context? What are you referring to?

Cheers,

Adam

Hi @omorhefere!

If you’re using XDE, you’ll need to install and use exp instead. Your question should then be answered by sections 4 and 5 of this page of our docs:
https://docs.expo.io/versions/latest/guides/building-standalone-apps.html

Let us know if you still have questions!

Thank you but that wasn’t the problem. I know how to build the app.

I am just confused by the statement “This API only works with standalone builds created with exp build.”

Does this mean that I cannot test it to see if it works before building a standalone app OR does it mean that it won’t work when you eject from expo and use expo kit?

#6

Oh, I’m sorry for saying what you already knew! Yes, you’ll need to build a standalone app in order to test the API.

oh, thank you very much
