I installed expo and created a fresh project. I booted up my iOS device and was able to load the app
untouched from the Expo Client.
Then I installed eslint and made a simple text change to the app to see if it would reload.
The expo XDE now gives this error consistently, and the expo client can no longer connect
10:04:18 PM Starting Metro Bundler on port 19001. 10:04:18 PM Metro Bundler ready. 10:04:19 PM Tunnel connected. 10:04:19 PM Project opened! You can now use the "Share" or "Device" buttons to view your project. 10:04:20 PM Metro Bundler failed to start. (code: UNKNOWN)
- uninstalling eslint
- reinstalling XDE
The expo client says “Could not connect to development server” and gives some steps about starting the React-native root node server. I assume this is what XDE is supposed to be doing.
- I am running Windows 10.
- Developing using Windows Subsystem for Linux, where node is installed.
- I am using Node 8.11.x and npm 6, but XDE gives a warning about npm 5. Looks like its pulling from the windows installation of node, not sure how to fix that
- It says Metro bundler starts on port 19001, but the connection url shows port 19000
Not sure what to try next, any help appreciated.
