Coming to Expo: a new open-source repo, TypeScript, best-in-class APIs, custom native code, more platforms, and much more
Expo developers include a wide variety of people making apps with Expo in different ways. To learn more about the most popular apps made with Expo we talked to developers and looked at production apps and found that most of them are made by professionals as part of a business. People who use Expo for business use it sometimes everyday and rely on it in part for their livelihoods as professional programmers.
Over the past few months we’ve been working on features and structural changes to the Expo platform to better serve skilled professionals and give them the agency to build high-quality apps with pride. Today, we’d like to share with you: how Expo is changing to increase agency for developers, our focus on quality and rigor, improvements to the developer experience, and some of the future direction of the Expo project.
