it will be great if there will be any options to help reducing app size because just simple app size take 24Mb and thats a lot
As @Steve Moretz mentioned, we are volunteer to support any kind for it. I think that must focus mobile side development more on mobile than desktop too. Please prioritize this issue. Better would be a modular system with registering them on Expo. This would destroy all other frameworks at outside since this is the ultimate way of being productive.
Dear Expo team,please make the modules optional,we know the app size is getting bigger and bigger because of the great modules you add in each sdk.And we know that you haven't made it optional because of worry of problems for Ota updates,but please make them optional and warn people who use Ota to not to use this feature until it will be compatible with Ota updates.
A lot of consumers want apk and ipa with this size its not acceptable for them.Also making the project bare is a pain in the arse,for all the fellows using windows and use expo to generate ipa for ios.We desperately need your help.Please make the modules optional even experimentaly and advicing users only use this if you have to that still will be great.
Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful framework.
I think this is one of the most important issue at expo. At build time projects should include only required dependencies. Any expected time for arrival for managed workflow? :)
@Brent Vatne I have done "expo build:android -t apk" just after "expo init myApp" and the app size is 48mb. Nothing has been included in expo app. Please help... :)
@Tushar Sharma: As said earlier here by Brent:
do expo build:android --type app-bundle to get an android app bundle, this bundle will be optimized by Google for different android versions and are smaller in the end.
@Laszlo Schürg: Thanks for the reply. I have done this also and .aab file size is 51mb. Now, after uploading to play store the app size will decrease, according to that. So, how much the app size will be after uploading as I haven't included any files yet...
Any update regarding expo apk size reduce upto 20 MB
? Let me know i want to immediately solution give me
Hope it be resolved in next version
Any update for this task ??
When expo updates its react native version to 0.61, using Hermes (new js engine for mobile) should decrease your app size significantly and also decrease TTI by up to 2s. I was at React Native EU conference so this is the latest info
After moving from expo 34, my app size increased from 15Mb to 46Mb for both App bundle and APK as well, even in google play store its showing around 25 Mb for app bundle, i think this is pretty huge size for a simple application.
@Niranjan Devasani: Did you found a solution?
@Alireza Darvishi: NO, we have to generate app-bundle using "expo build:android -t app-bundle" , when we upload this bundle to the google play store, google will do the magic, like generating different APK's for different versions and finally it will compress the APK size up to 50% of the total size ( 25Mb ) . i feel this is good size but still for simple application having 25 Mb is too much, still need more improvement on this.
@Niranjan Devasani: I have noticed this as well, our app went from 17Mb to 47Mb after expo 34 and unfortunately for us a large portion of our customers are in China and cannot download from Google so we manage and release APKs. Really hope expo can address this at some point.
@Taylor Moss: React native had added enabling hermes, that is reducing my app size to 5Mb from 45 Mb, after processing in google play. even before i saw app size is less than 10 Mb. if expo added this feature may be App size issue will get resolved.
