React Native app doesn't connect to Metro bundler on first launch
I am working in an established iOS app. I have backfilled the app to use React Native, and so far that part is working fine. The problems I am running into are:
All-in-all, this isn't a huge issue as there is a workaround available to me. However, it doesn't feel right and I would like to figure out what is going on.
My theory is that during the build process, Xcode is bundling the React Native code as if it is trying to do a production build (I have verified the scheme is set to debug) in a debug executable. I have tried detecting __DEV__ and it is true, so I cannot figure out how to get the app to connect to Metro directly after the Xcode build.
Thank you all in advance for any help you can offer.
