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
I made a very simple blog like app and Play Console size is 25 mb, that is really too big for such a simple app.
It's in progress but would you please tell us the progress in percent or something.Like 40%? 50%?
That would help to settle this mess here. at least 950 people are waiting here for over 2 years.
@Steve Moretz: hello steve! we have made some progress over the last couple years, eg: app bundles on android, shipping standalone app builds with only a single sdk version (rather than the same set of versions as the client). we are now working on rewriting our build service and updates infrastructure to support builds with only the subset of apis that you use in your app. this is pretty tricky to make the developer experience smooth. we don't have a concrete timeline but you can always eject if you absolutely need to have a smaller app size!
Very nice exactly things everybody wanted to hear.Thank you so much.So you are making the modules optional.Right?We don't expect to get an exact time but about making it optional.Could you give us a percentage or just a time what you think it's gonna be done.We don't expect it to be the real time.But just want to know your oppinion about the time it's gonna ship.
@Steve Moretz: hopefully this year
Its much needed. Size of final build is too large. Must have option to release production level build with including those which is needed.
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...
@Tushar Sharma: After uploading the size decreased to ~25mb in my case
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
