Hey, you’re saying it’s 25Mb with expo, but what’s the size with react-native CLI ?

Expo is for people who have literally no knowledge about react native or mobile app development.

So it would be better if you start with it first.

But for production, react native cli is must!!

I’m not judging expo or RN CLI, but it’s good to know that the size of the app is so much bigger with expo. Thanks 😊
