React native development on windows without watchman

(Nayminlwin) #1

I just started looking into react native for mobile development. I don’t have a mac and I’m currently on windows though I’m quite familiar with linux as well.

Seems like react native development is targeted mainly for mac and linux. It’s quite easy to setup in windows but the major component is lacking in it, watchman. I really like the idea of live reloads but it seems to require watchman to work.

Is there anyway for windows users to at least manually trigger file changes in packager or is there some other options available?

Thanks in advance.
