How to build android?


i’m on windows 10 using expo to test my react-native code.
It work good when using expo mobile app. Now i want to create an apk and test it.

i open my console,

npm install -g exp
exp login
exp start

last text i get on the console :

[exp] Expo is ready.
[exp] You can scan this QR code:
[exp] Your URL is
[exp] Logs for your project will appear below. Press Ctrl+C to exit.
[exp] Dependency graph loaded.

if i flash the QR code with the phone it work.
but i want to create an APK.

i try to enter “exp build:android” on the same console but not working.

[exp] … log from my app
exp build:android

i open an other console and go to the same dir and run the same command

[exp] Checking if current build exists…

[exp] Build ID: c89befde-f112-4bd0-a1bd-b7f220ce4875
[exp] Run exp build:status to monitor it.

so i run exp build:status

[exp] Checking if current build exists…
[exp] ============
[exp] Build Status
[exp] ============
[exp] Android: Build in progress…

nothing happen after 15 min at least, no hard drive or cpu activity more than usually, i checked progress a lot

what i’m missing ?

so after more try and wait i get the link … oups

is there a way to make this faster ?
