better than coming up with a one-off implementation for this, we are upstreaming a Blob implementation:
first this needs to land: https://github.com/facebook/react-native/pull/11417
then this adds Blob to XMLHttpRequest: https://github.com/facebook/react-native/pull/11573
@Brent Vatne: any news on the release of this implementation? it will be really appreciated. Thanks a lot!
@Fabio Consonni: unfortunately nothing more than what can be seen in those prs. the first one landed, the second one needs to be updated and reviewed
@Brent Vatne: Hello! Any updates on this? I checked both PRs and seems rather quiet there. Thanks :)
@John Doe: hoping to land it in sdk22
@Brent Vatne: Now that it looks like everything has been merged, how soon do you expect us to be able to use this?
@Conor Strejcek: sdk27 in march https://twitter.com/expo_io/status/957392036616798208
sweeet! Waiting on this too...
Still in progress?
@Alexandre Rivest: yes
this would be the greatest thing ever!
would this include sharing a file from the local filesystem?
Guys, this will be app saver!!, Could you please provide a version/time by which you have plan to release this feature
This would be great indeed. In addition, react-native-fetch-blob's maintainer seems to have stopped maintaining this module, so it might not be compatible with future versions of RN
Finally! It was merged!
@Chenglu Li: Does it work now?
Any roadmap about this feature ?
@Frederic Le Bris: I saw that PR was merged to the react-native core. So, maybe we can use it with Expo at SDKv27. (SDKv26 will release with RN@0.53)
landing in sdk 26 very shortly
