    A framework for building native applications using React

    ...type Props = {};export default class App extends Component { render() { return ( {/*Welcome to React Native! To get started, edit App.js {instructions}*/} ); }}... I have created a Github issue to RN repo since September but noone has replied which makes me think that I am doing something wrong. Is there a new prop or an other way to make large images show normal with full quality in RN 0.57.x? Maybe the metr obuilder updates to 0.57.x have changed how the bundler handles the image assets? I have used resizeMethod prop to "scale" and "resize" with no difference at all. I have used PNG8, PNG24 and PNG32 all same result.

  • Fresco

    An Android library for managing images and the memory they use.

    I have created an issue at Fresco on August 22, 2019 and after some conversations and talkings, the only way for now to disable image downsample, is to compile Fresco from source after removing/comment out the downsample code inside

    RN 0.61 with Fresco patch to disable image downsampling

    I have created a repository that has RN 0.61 and has detailed instructions on how to compile Fresco and disable image downsample. The repository can be found here:

  • cli

    React Native command line tools (by react-native-community)

    I have created a react-native-community/cli template that has RN 0.61.5 project and the required modifications to build Fresco from source. This is an easy and quick way to have a new RN project crafted with custom project name and with the changes needed to compile Fresco from source. It also uses Android NDK Revision 21 and I have tested it on macOS and Windows using yarn 1.21.
