Devlog for day 13 of my #100DaysOfCode coding challenge.
Today I tried to integrate react-native-detect-new-photo into my project and failed. It was expected since it’s a one off repository with sparse instructions and hadn’t been updated in a while. All big signs of an unreliable module. Doubly so since it’s a native module. There were two main issues:
NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescriptiondefined in your
Info.plistfile. I never got around to testing Android but I suspect you’ll need to define the proper permissions in your
sendAppEventWithName. The documentation was finally updated for the new way of writing bridge code back in Dec of 2017, but I gave up on updating the code as it was taking too long (went over my self imposed time limit of 1hr).
For now, I’ll continue integrating other modules that I need. Once I have a large enough time block, I’ll tackle writing my own updated version of this module (perhaps forking it) and publishing it on Github. I won’t abandon the project if it works as that is one of my pet peeves.
