Prerequisite: Follow the software setup instructions. (All of the following should be done within a folder of your git working directory, so you can push it to gitlab by the deadline.)
For this milestone, your goal is to get a basic React Native app working, with its source uploaded to gitlab. Here are the specific requirements.
The app should include a basic
View container with some
Text elements in it. It should also include an
You should use at least one custom element, such as
BlinkText in my demo, but it could be something different.
Your app should include a
TextInput and a
Button element. It should react in some way to the button being pressed. For example, it could increment a counter, or toggle the background color.
In addition to working in an Expo environment, the tests should pass when you run either
npm test (for interactive testing), or
node node_modules/jest/bin/jest.js (for batch testing).
You should make sure there is a
.gitignore file in the top-level of your working directory, and/or in the project subdirectory. (The
create-react-native-app probably created a suitable one for you.) In particular, the
node_modules directory should absolutely not be part of your commit.
You should include a
.gitlab-ci.yml in the top-level of your working directory, and make sure that the gitlab continuous integration system can build and test your app. Here is the gitlab-ci configuration from my demo app. The only changes you should make are to replace the
demo directory name with your own subdirectory (in the
test/script section, and in the
cache/paths). You can see the results of the continuous integration in your commits list. Click the green checkmark (or red
X) and then the
test entry to see a full transcript.
