Today I learned about Expo, a toolkit/SDK for React Native development. Expo makes it easy to bootstrap a React Native code-base without having to install Android Studio or other tool-chains. Node.js and npm (or yarn) are the only requirements. Install via npm install expo-cli –global. Create a new project: expo init myProject && cd myProject expo start This will open up a browser window (“Expo Client”). Here you can open a new emulator, even a web emulator.
