Removing vector icons as a hard dependency for expo

  1. SDK Version: 40.0.1
  2. Platform: iOS
  3. Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on. - @expo/vector-icons

We are trying to build an iOS AppClip which has a size constraint of 10MB, while we have expo in the app there are certain libraries packaged as part of the expo which we are not utilizing. We want to remove vector-icons that are required by expo.

While creating the IPA file we see expo vector icons are packaged along, which is increasing the size by around 4MB which is making a big impact on the size constraint. We are now stuck here to figure out a way to cut down the size, any help from the community is highly appreciated!

Great post. I also need help.
