  • Not able to run rnmapbox example
    2 projects | /r/reactnative | 8 Mar 2023
    I am trying to get the example projects from rnmapbox to run to study the implementation, following the instruction (here). but I have been unable to run the project. I have indeed stored my access token in a file called accesstoken in the root of the project in the folder 'example'. I have run the commands 'yarn install' and 'yarn start'. Subsequently, I have run ' yarn android', which throws the following. Any help is much appreciated as this is turning out to be quite frustrating. Thank you! I am on Windows, by the way.

    Maps SDK for React Native is based on Mapbox GL JS. Here is the documentation for Mapbox Maps SDK for React Native which is a community-maintained React Native library that provides reusable JS components for integrating Mapbox maps into iOS and Android apps. Since it is just maintained by volunteers and is constantly updating, some examples of the props or the functions of the existing components were not clear enough.
