Is it possible to create expo development build without eas?

In this documentation that development build can be made locally. But in the docs I don’t see how.
I don’t want to use eas tool so how to build development app locally?

Hi @vladimir.v

Is there a reason you don’t want to use the eas tool to build locally on your machine?

This is how you csn use eas to build locally:

Note that this works for Android apps on macOS or Linux (or WSL on Windows). For iOS apps this only works on macOS (blame Apple for that).

You can probably also do it by generating the native projects with npx expo prebuild and then build the native projects with Android Studio and Xcode. But off hand I’m not sure how you create a dev build like that. Maybe it just works? I haven’t tried it.
