What optimizations does Expo perform with `publish`


#1

I was surprised to read that for example console.logs are not automatically removed by Expo in the production version. Does this mean my final bundled app contains print statements?

https://docs.expo.io/versions/latest/react-native/performance

XCode essentially performs a full optimization and minification of the code base when publishing. This includes removing all the console logs, minification and any other kind of optimizations.

Can I get clarification on what is happening?

  • Do I really have to install another module to clean up my JS code?
  • Should I do a JS minification?
  • Are code comments removed?

Hey @ericjames,

We minify your code bundle, but we don’t perform the other optimizations you mentioned like removal of code comments or console calls.

Cheers,

Adam
