I ended up getting this error after an unsuccessful attempt to update the expo-cli. The solution was to delete the .expo folder from the project. Good luck! : )
Icons Not Loaded After Updating ReactNative Expo to Version 40
TL; DR: If you’re loading SVGs, check into your metro.config.js and see if you’re using the getDefaultConfig from ‘@expo/metro-config’. If you’re requiring it from ‘metro-config’, you should update your code based on the one below. More info in the readme of ‘react-native-svg-transformer‘ Recently I’ve had an issue with updating a project I was working on… Continue reading Icons Not Loaded After Updating ReactNative Expo to Version 40
Messing with Expo Permissions caused ImagePicker to misbehave
Have you seen the following alert? Sorry, we need media library permissions to make this work! Well.. me too! 🙂 And I’ve seen this error despite the fact that I’ve had both the “CAMERA” and “MEDIA_LIBRARY” permissions added to my android.permissions array. Googling didn’t help much, because it just led me to either the expo… Continue reading Messing with Expo Permissions caused ImagePicker to misbehave
Updating a React Native/Expo image file does not update the visualization of this image everywhere in the app
I’ve had an interesting problem when saving and updating images in a React Native application built with Expo. I’m building an app that has contacts and images (that are either taken from the phone contact entry or picked from the gallery).

Do you get something like:“Error: Cannot find module ‘D:\project_folder\package.json’”And your require stack contains paths.js, env.js and test.js? Well, you have to both configure the runtimeExecutable and the cwd. This error is because you’re running the tests from outside your directory.

Spoiler: When having Internet connectivity issues, make sure that Android Studio is running.

Wondering how big is your React project?
Recently I wanted to explore the impact of a refactoring I did so I ended up checking the length of the files I’ve had in git (hoping that this number would decrease). The magic command was to list the files in git, grep the ones ending with js, jsx and css and count the lines.… Continue reading Wondering how big is your React project?
AWS S3 and it’s informative errors – 404, “NoSuchUpload”
I’m continuing with my exploration in the AWS world 🙂 For the last couple of days, I have been occasionally receiving the weird error “NSuckUpload” when I try to either upload a part to an S3 Multipart upload or try to complete the upload with given UploadId.

AWS Closes S3 Read Stream Unexpectedly
I’m continuing with my notes on transferring big files from and to AWS S3 with node.js If you are reading a file from a S3 bucket using a stream that you occasionally pause, mind that the read stream will be closed in 60 minutes. If you cannot handle the file in that period of time,… Continue reading AWS Closes S3 Read Stream Unexpectedly
