Ok. I have tried doing a --release version with this from the terminal:
npm run build-android-bundle – --release --keyStorePath “~/path/to_key.keystore” --keyStorePassword “thePassword” --keyStoreAlias “theAliasName” --keyStoreAliasPassword “thePassword”
but ended up with this error:
FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.
- What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ‘:processF0F1F2F3F4F5F6ReleaseManifest’.
Manifest merger failed : Attribute meta-data#android.support.VERSION@value value=(25.3.1) from [com.android.support:design:25.3.1] AndroidManifest.xml:27:9-31
is also present at [com.android.support:appcompat-v7:26.0.0-alpha1] AndroidManifest.xml:27:9-38 value=(26.0.0-alpha1).
Suggestion: add ‘tools:replace=“android:value”’ to element at AndroidManifest.xml:25:5-27:34 to override.
I am trying to understand what this means but could someone assist?
