use expo build:web but with development settings

Hi there,

My understanding is running expo start --web will have expo build the project virtually in memory and no files are created in a directory somewhere. Is this correct?

If so I need to somehow generate the actual files in a directory to satisfy our internal development workflow.

I know I can publish via expo build:web however that produces a production versions of the js and assets.

I’ve also tried the following

EXPO_WEB_DEBUG=true expo build:web
expo build:web -d

But these do not produce “development” like files.

I’d like the built project to match development’s behaviour i.e.

  1. no minification
  2. errors reported in the browser screen
  3. full detailed stacktrace for errors in the console
  4. etc etc

Is there a way to do this?
