expo app initiation error

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version:
    “dependencies”: {
    “expo”: “^35.0.0”,
    “react”: “16.8.3”,
    “react-dom”: “16.8.3”,

  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all):all

When start expo by ‘expo start’ and start iOS simulation or others, I get below message

node_modules/expo/AppEntry.js: “” is not a valid identifer name Failed building JavaScript bundle.

I don’t know what to do, please help.

I already delete and reinstall node, npm, expo-cli.

Hey @thu365,

Can you share your app.json file?



Someone else posted about the same problem earlier today and apparently solved it by removing node_modules and re-running npm install

Note: They used sudo npm install but sudo should definitely not be necessary.
