Issues with React Native Expo XDE with Firebase
1. Fetch to Blob Image Storage issues
Problem: You can not even now as of Expo SDK 24.0.0 use Firebase storage in Expo because you will get a Error:Cannot Convert Blob to Blob.
Solution: Is too either Detach from expo and add fetch-to-blob npm package and compile packages natively.
2. Google Phone Authentication
Problem: Google Phone Authentication does not work in Expo. There are core files for IOS and Android that must be altered Manifests(Android), Appdelegates(IOS) before compile.
Solution: You can Detach and work through the npm integration packages for RNFirebase to make it work.
3. Push Notification
Problem: You need to install the pods and download the GoogleService-Info.plist file in order to Run push notifications on IOS
Solution: Detaching adding RNFirebase/Messaging and the GoogleService-Info.plist file in the root of your xCode appDelegate files.
4. Facebook Publishing Functions
Problem: You can not currently under Expo SDK 24.0.0 or above run any facebook Publishing functions
Solution: Detach and add react-native-facebook NPM
This will be as I assume a running list of limitations
