`exp start` hangs in terminal with no output

steps to reproduce: not sure, it happens randomly. setting EXPO_DEBUG=true doesn’t work in this case.

Deleting ~/.expo does not work. As soon as I enter in my password it hangs at “Success. You are now logged in”.

Using latest version of exp but this has happened with older versions as well.

XDE however does work fine! I just prefer the command line.

If I can help ya’ll in any way, just let me know :slight_smile:


I was wondering why my CPU has been freaking out lately. It looks like there might be something exp is getting stuck on.

Thanks for the report, I’m not sure what’s going on so I’ve tracked it here.

It might be coz the localhost is not defined with the required syntax in the “hosts” file of the system.
The file can be located @:

=> etc/hosts
(above file for linux)
=> c:\ Windows \System32\Drivers\ etc \ hosts
(above file for Windows)

i.e. file has some wrong input.

So, Try replacing everything in that file with the text below as this is the default text that was always there in hosts file when it worked fine: localhost broadcasthost
::1 localhost
fe80::1%lo0 localhost
