Expo is an open-source framework for apps that run natively on Android, iOS, and the web.

This project cannot be used with an Expo Go app because it requires custom native code. Follow the steps in the article on how to make your own development build or prebuild your native projects.

This plugin will automatically configure your native code when it's generated (e.g. with npx expo prebuild) so that it can be used with react-native-daily-js.


Ensure you use versions that work together!
