Load test builds in expo1 min read
have expo project, want public testing url
expo has restricted loading of apps from public for ios, but here's a workaround that we use to let users test our apps when we do rapid-prototyping...
- create a github action to build the expo app with a unique app name for each PR, so you don't accidentally do anything to your production app and so comments are stamped to specific feature branches
npx expo publish --non-interactive
- look for the output url which looks like this:
image: /uploads/ 📝 Manifest: https://exp.host/@***/***-pr-40/index.exp?sdkVersion=40.0.0 Learn more: https://expo.fyi/manifest-url
- Copy that url into a QR code generator like this one:
Or use a cli script to do it at the end of the build process:
And then email it to the users that you want to test!
- Scan the code on your iPhone!
