podfiles: options that don't require expo eject?

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 42.0.0
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android & iOS
  3. native code / podfiles install

I am working on a payment integration, as part of the install process - i need to do “pod install”
can this be done without having to eject the project?

I am enjoying the expo management process and would prefer means of staying in it.

Hi @shaksi

If you use EAS Build then pod install is run during the build process.

See step 9 of the Remote Steps in the iOS build process document.

If you need to make other modifications to the files under the android and/or ios directories then you’d need a Config Plugin.


Glad to hear that. Thank you

With regards to local testing any advice - as expo go basic setup wont allow me to access the native code of installed RN modules/plugins

You need to build a dev client which is basically like Expo Go, but it includes the code for all of the dependencies specified in your package.json.
