    Project mention: has anyone managed to make @rainbow-me/animated-charts on bare React Native CLI and android? | | 2021-12-21

    I'm using react native CLI and testing on android. I followed precisely installation instructions on both the rainbow repo and the reanimated 2 docs. I tried with a simple chart like the example in the read me. At first i got an error saying the module "react-native-gesture-handler" couldn't be found. Which,made sense since i hadn't i installed it, but no one told me it was necessary for this to work. After installing it, i got another error regarding SVG. Again, no one told me but i installed "react-native-svg" and the error was gone. Only for it to be replaced by a crash when i opened chart screen. Before crashing, sometimes i could see a glimpse of an error message: "rngesturehandlermodule.attach gesture handler got 2 arguments expected 3". Finally, i changed the version of "react-native-gesture-handler" from 2.x.x to 1.8.0 and the app doesn't crashes anymore or show any error. But still, it's really buggy and the charts does not appaear most of the time, not to mention i can't interact with it.
