Splash Screen with Expo

Since you cannot change anything but javascript, is it possible to create Splash Screen using Expo?

I may have answered my own question, I was reading this part of the documentation. https://docs.expo.io/versions/v19.0.0/guides/configuration.html And there is a section called loading

Configuration for the loading screen that users see when opening your app, while fetching & caching bundle and assets.

Were you able to to use that to get a splash screen working? I found that page but anything I changed in that file did not show up. I still just get the blank white screen with the loading icon.

This is my app.json file.

“expo”: {
“name”: “Geneomy”,
“sdkVersion”: “18.0.0”,
“icon”: “./assets/logo.png”,
“loading”: {
“backgroundImage”: “./assets/Background.png”,

I haven’t tested yet. But this suppose to work only with the “Building Standalone Apps” https://docs.expo.io/versions/v19.0.0/guides/building-standalone-apps.html

Did you try building standalone app?

Ours is not a standalone app. It’s an expo project that we eventually want to publish but not near it yet.

In this case I don’t know if it’s going to work, but if you find it out, please reply it here.

Your app.json file looks fine, i was able to get the Splashscreen to display after restarting and resetting npm and expo cache.

So I kind of a noob mistake but my local path was slightly incorrect and that’s why it was not working. Thanks for your help guys.
