The Draftbit Developer Hub

Welcome to the Draftbit developer hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with Draftbit as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    

Why Expo?

In their own words, Expo is a free and open source toolchain built around React Native to help you build native iOS and Android projects using JavaScript and React. Expo is a layer on top of React Native that allows us to do things like easily work with the native APIs of the phone's operating system like the camera, GPS, photo library and more, live preview Draftbit apps during development, publish apps over the air in real time, and much more.

If you haven't downloaded the Expo app yet, you can download it on the App Store or Play Store now.

Expo gives you access to a variety of tools to make React Native development faster and easier. The main tool Draftbit uses is Live Preview, which makes it possible for you to view what you're building in Draftbit on your phone in realtime.

While you're using Draftbit, you'll see QR codes appear that you scan with your phone's camera if you're using an iPhone, or the Expo app itself if you're using an Android.

Expo CLI

In order to continue working on your project outside of the Draftbit builder, you'll need to set up Expo CLI on your computer. All you have to do is open up your terminal and run yarn global add expo-cli or npm install -g expo-cli.
