Upload Images in Background Componet independent


I am currently working on an application in which the user has the possibility to select and upload several images.
Currently I am using an “ImageContainer” which contains a list of image components. These take over the upload of the images and update a status display about the status of the upload.

This works quite well as long as the user does not leave the screen. If he leaves the screen the components are unmounted, so I get an error.

I’m now looking for a way to run the upload in a service / background task etc. to make the upload component independent.
Is there a possibility to archive this in expo without ejecting?

Hey @artondesign,

Unfortunately this isn’t possible yet with the Expo SDK. We’re hoping to get additional background task functionality implement but we don’t have a specific target for that as of now.
