WebP Image Support for IOS

Good day everyone,

I am currently looking for a way to render WebP images on React Native IOS, however, everything I’ve found so far is by rejecting expo and using a bare workflow. So out of desperation, I am just trying to find out if anyone else has somehow found a way around this? Or a different package that allows you to render WebP images on IOS with expo.

Kind regards

Hi @bitvivaz

Based on the installation instructions for react-native-webp-format it looks like it will just work for iOS as long as you build with EAS Build.

For Android a config plugin will need to be written.

@wodin I’m not able to make it work. I did the installation steps and then restarted but images are not being loaded on iOS 13 or below.

It works for me on iOS 15:

Does it work for you on iOS > 13?

I haven’t figured out how to create a Simulator with an earlier version of iOS, so have not been able to test iOS 13 or below.

Also, what installation steps did you do exactly?
