Cannot run expo start - error 'Cannot read property 'resolver' of undefined'.

Hi ,
I am on step 2 of the documentation seen here

ive created a brand new project using create-react-native-app.
ran expo eject. no errors. the package.json dependencies reads

    "expo": "^35.0.0",
    "expokit": "35.0.1",
    "react": "16.8.3",
    "react-dom": "16.8.3",
    "react-native": "",
    "react-native-unimodules": "^0.6.0",
    "react-native-web": "^0.11.7"

next step ‘expo start’ returns this error :

Expo DevTools is running at http://localhost:19002
error Cannot read property ‘resolver’ of undefined.

Metro Bundler process exited with code 1

please help. thanks!

Hey @dwfresh,

CRNA has long been archived and is not maintained. I would strongly recommend creating a project with expo-cli via expo init and then ejecting to either ExpoKit or the Bare workflow. The Bare workflow is a much smoother experience but currently you’d lose out on OTA update support. We’re working to get feature parity there though.


Thank you Adam, i did not realize CRNA wasn’t maintained, I will go the expo-cli route
