How can I make the pdf view for expo?

Not a full answer, but, when we had to allow viewing of PDF’s in our app, we took the easy way out and let the OS do it. We would request a randomized, public link to the PDF from our server, and then we would do the following to display it:

if (Platform.OS === 'ios') {
        } else {
          IntentLauncher.startActivityAsync('android.intent.action.VIEW', {
            type: 'application/pdf',
            data: url,

Then the user gets all these great zoom, paging functions, and we don’t have to do a thing!
