After ejecting my expo project to native one

I can’t export APK file

I have the same problem , is there a solution?

Did you run expo publish before?

What command are you using to build?

expo eject后,android\app\main\assets生成两个新文件app.bundle,app.manifest是空的,执行./gradlew assembleRelease 后就会出现:
Error: The manifest at ‘\android\app\src\main\assets\app.manifest’ was empty or invalid.

Task :app:bundleReleaseExpoUpdatesAssets FAILED

I had to finally
start a new normal (React-Native) project from scratch and manually put my files inside it

I won’t use Expo again in my big projects , it was a fault to use Expo


./gradlew assembleRelease -x ‘:app:bundleReleaseExpoUpdatesAssets’
