React Native - Build APK


react-native bundle --dev false --platform android --entry-file index.js --bundle-output ./android/app/build/intermediates/assets/debug/ --assets-dest ./android/app/build/intermediates/res/merged/debug


cd android


./gradlew assembleDebug

Once all three commands executed successfully. You can find the generated APK on

Project root directory > android > app > build > outputs > apk > app-debug.apk

As the name suggests, this is not a release version. But still, you can share it with testers. I use hockeyapp to do the distribution.
