This experience report is super useful, thanks so much! Sorry you ran into problems with ejecting and CRNA, I created a GitHub issue for the vector icons issue. The code for setting up the plists in the eject process comes from the react-native-cli tool that's part of RN, but I'd be very happy to file an issue upstream and try to resolve it if you have more details about what exactly was broken when creating the iOS project.
Totally agree that fastlane is awesome, a lot of our build service is powered by those tools.
what is the difference between CRNA and Expo? which one should I use?
CRNA uses Expo under the hood, but it's faster to get started with, doesn't need a user account, and doesn't rely on any of Expo's backend services.
