Start your project in 3 simple steps

Thanks to the Expo.io ecosystem, you can run your application without installing any complex tools like Android SDK, XCode, or take care of your JDK version.

Follow these three steps to develop Flotiq based application:

  1. Install expo

    npm install --global expo-cli
    

  2. Clone GitHub project

    git clone https://github.com/flotiq/flotiq-mobile-demo
    

  3. Start developing

    cd flotiq-mobile-demo/
    npm install
    npm start
    

This will start Metro server http://localhost:19002 where you can start the app on Android and iOS simulator or the real device.

To run the app on the real device, you have to have the Expo Go app installed (Android app, iOS app).

When you open the Expo Go app, you have to scan the QR code presented on the http://localhost:19002 page.
