Bug (with easy repro): error importing pre-existing SQLite file


When a pre-existing SQLite file is required in a brand new project, an error is thrown, even after updating the packager settings.

Steps to Reproduce

(optionally skip these steps and check out https://github.com/danbenn/expo-sqlite-bug)

Expo SDK: 31.0.0 (latest),
Expo CLI: 2.4.0 (latest)

Create a new project:

expo init sqlite-module-bug && cd sqlite-module-bug

Create an empty SQLite database:

cd assets && sqlite3 sample.db "create table verses(field1 int);"

Add this anywhere in your App.js:

const sampleDatabase = require('./assets/sample.db');

Update packager settings:

"assetBundlePatterns": [
"packagerOpts": {
  "assetExts": ["db"]

Run expo:

expo start

And you’ll get this error:

Unable to resolve "./assets/sample.db" from "App.js"

Can anyone else confirm that this is a bug?

I’m also encountering exactly same bug. Any suggestions?

Hello @danbenn I found a workaround for this bug. Look here unable-to-load-obj-file-using-require for details. :slight_smile:
