Today we tried to bundle an old React Native(0.38) project for release:
react-native bundle --verbose --entry-file ./RNindex.js --assets-dest ./RNapp --bundle-output ./RNindex.jsbundle --platform ios --dev false
I got this mysterious error:
error Invalid platform "ios" selected. info Available platforms are: "native". If you are trying to bundle for an out-of-tree platform, it may not be installed. error Bundling failed Error: Bundling failed at buildBundle (/Users/muyexi/.config/yarn/global/node_modules/@react-native-community/cli/build/commands/bundle/buildBundle.js:85:11)
After some search I coundn't get a clear anwser, then out of nowhere
I decided to put
yarn before the script and had a go, and it works.
yarn react-native bundle --entry-file ./RNindex.js --assets-dest ./RNapp --bundle-output ./RNindex.jsbundle --platform ios --dev false
From React Native CLI, it does say
It exposes react-native binary, so you can call yarn react-native or npx react-native directly from your project.
