Generating AndroidManifest.xml in ejected project

I’ve ejected my project (because we’ll be using FireBase Push notifications and probably beacons) and I am using provided .gitignore ( which ignores AndroidManifest.xml file that is mandatory to build initial apk in Android Studio.

Looking at app.json I realized it is probably generated if so, then how.

Hi! Sorry about that. Removing that line from your gitignore should make it possible to commit the manifest to source control. Is this a project you cloned from GitHub?

That’s what we have ended up doing.

Nope we have created project using CRNE and copied that manifest I linked.

Why was those clauses put there in the first place?
