Updating Expo SDK to v35 - NSString cannot be converted to a UIColor

  1. SDK Version: v35.0.0
  2. Platforms: iOS

After updating to Expo SDK v35.0.0, when I start my app I’m getting this error. I have no clue where this is coming from. Any ideas of how I can find out?

JSON value '#EA1B0A' of type NSString cannot be converted to a UIColor. Did you forget to call processColor() on the JS side?

PS: On SDK v34.0.0 it’s all right.

It looks like it is related to an SVG. How many places in your app do you use that colour for an SVG? The other place this message could be logged from is the Stripe payment module, but I don’t think that’s relevant to your case.

I use it on many places. But other colours give the same error too. Therefore, it doesn’t look like it is related to this specific colour, but to colours in general.

Any advice about what I can try?

Okay, we finally found a workaround to fix it! But it’s still an issue I guess. See here: https://github.com/react-native-community/react-native-svg/issues/1088#issuecomment-535015770

Glad you got it fixed :slight_smile:

And I see it was caused by a bug in react-native-svg that is now fixed. (Pasting here for the benefit of people not subscribed to the issue on GitHub):
