Changes Babel's compiled
import statements to be lazily evaluated when their imported bindings are used for the first time.
Note: this option has an effect only when the
disableImportExportTransform option is set to
false. On Android and iOS,
disableImportExportTransform defaults to
false, and on web it defaults to
true to allow for tree shaking.
This can improve the initial load time of your app because evaluating dependencies up front is sometimes entirely un-necessary, particularly when the dependencies have no side effects.
The value of
lazyImports has a few possible effects:
null- metro-react-native-babel-preset will handle it. (Learn more about it here: https://github.com/facebook/metro/commit/23e3503dde5f914f3e642ef214f508d0a699851d)
false- No lazy initialization of any imported module.
true- Lazy-init all imported modules except local imports (e.g.,
./foo), certain Expo packages that have side effects, and the two cases mentioned here.
Array<string>- babel-plugin-transform-modules-commonjs will handle it.
(string) => boolean- babel-plugin-transform-modules-commonjs will handle it.
If you choose to do this, you can also access the list of Expo packages that have side effects by using
const lazyImportsBlacklist = require('babel-preset-expo/lazy-imports-blacklist');which returns a
module.exports). This option will break tree shaking and increase your bundle size, but will eliminate the following error when
module.exports is used:
TypeError: Cannot assign to read only property 'exports' of object '#<Object>'
'babel-preset-expo'web: disableImportExportTransform: true
