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
is there anything going to happen with this in sdk 37?
Does expo creates pwa?
if yes how can I develop it?
@Sahand: As far as I know, yes:
But you should rather ask questions like this at https://forums.expo.io or on Slack.
Please can this be revisited. Currently looking at a 150MB+ app...anything to cull that would help
Need this :)
Opting out of certain APIs like GoogleMaps, Segment, and Branch would be a really great thing!
@bitttttten: Hello could you tell me how to do the opt out ?
@Ahmed Samir: You can't, I was saying it would be good if you could!
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.
@Keremcan Büyüktaşkın: It doesn't matter what you write.the blank apk at sdk 36 is 48 mb.So doesn't matter if you make the craziest app like a clone of instagram or something you'll probably only go a couple of megabytes more than the blank app.(It just depends on the assets you include like the pictures that's all makes the difference every possibility you can do is included expo build doesn't care what you use in your app it just includes everything).
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
@Brent Vatne: Even if opting out of certain APIs is manual, it would still be a really good dev experience. I know figuring out this automatically would be amazing but I wouldn't mind doing it manually for v0 👻
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.
