I am building a react-native android app in gitlab-ci using the reactnativecommunity/react-native-android docker image. If i understood correctly, react-native needs
watchman in order to build the bundle.
But I noticed that
watchman is not installed on the docker image and I don't install it in the
.gitlab-ci.yml. Also, when I add
which watchman or
watchman watch-del-all to the
.gitlab-ci.yml, it returns
watchman: command not found.
But how is react-native then able to build the bundle?
