Running start and publish with Expo CLI throws TypeError

Hi Expo,

I’m opening this ticket because a lot of devs have reported issues with starting new (and I think also existing) projects. Slack, GitHub and Stack Overflow, so I guess this should be something wide spread.

Here are the links:

Here is an example of the issue, I could replicate this on both Node 11 and Node 8.

/code/test # EXPO_DEBUG=true expo start
[22:40:43] Starting project at /code/test
[22:40:44] Expo DevTools is running at http://localhost:19002
[22:40:44] Opening DevTools in the browser... (press shift-d to disable)
[22:40:48] TypeError: Cannot read property 'compile' of undefined



Getting this issue now repeatedly in CI builds, but I can run expo locally without issue. Expo cli version 2.4.0 in both environments.

This looks like a new issue as of the last day or so.

Hey @bonham000 what are the specs for your local environment?


Mac OS 10.13.6
node 8.11.2
npm 6.4.1,
Expo SDK 31
The CI builds which fail are running in a node 8.11.3-alpine docker container.

Let me know if I can provide any more info.

Looks like it’s being discussed here:

I see some comments on GitHub mentioning this has been fixed in the latest (2.4.1) Expo CLI,

Thanks @sjchmiela!
