There are two types of markup in Liquid: Output and Tag.

  • Output markup (which may resolve to text) is surrounded by
{{ matched pairs of curly brackets (ie, braces) }}
  • Tag markup (which cannot resolve to text) is surrounded by

First of all, this is not my brilliant effort to get react-native working on Windows, it is the collation of work by others, particularly @mqli and @Bernd Wessels. I've just summarised what worked for me.

If you would prefer to read what I've plagerised, head over to mqli's great gist


  • The below is tested with react-native-cli 0.1.5, react-native 0.12.0 on Windows 10, node 4.1.1, and Android (physical Nexus 6 and AVD with API v22)
  • I hope this will all be redundant in a few weeks. Please comment on stuff that is now fixed and I will update this to keep it relevant.
  • Sprinkle a bit of YMMV around

Keep this github issue handy, it’s the bucket for all Windows/Linux related tricks to get RN working.

The problem with CloudFlare's DNS "CNAME flattening" TTL

[attaching this to a CloudFlare survey why I left them (for DNSimple)]

I was a free user using CloudFlare only for DNS, chiefly because it can simulate CNAME at an apex domain. The apex domains, point to Cloudflare "CNAME-flattening" nicely returns an A record; unfortunately it's served with a huge TTL of 7 days(!), which causes a long outage when the underlying IP changes.

I asked support how I can lower the TTL (BTW it's great that you provide free support at all) and was told [, emphasis mine]:

This is based on the TTL of your authoritative provider for

Typing vagrant from the command line will display a list of all available commands.

Be sure that you are in the same directory as the Vagrantfile when running these commands!

Creating a VM

  • vagrant init -- Initialize Vagrant with a Vagrantfile and ./.vagrant directory, using no specified base image. Before you can do vagrant up, you'll need to specify a base image in the Vagrantfile.
  • vagrant init <boxpath> -- Initialize Vagrant with a specific box. To find a box, go to the public Vagrant box catalog. When you find one you like, just replace it's name with boxpath. For example, vagrant init ubuntu/trusty64.

Starting a VM

  • vagrant up -- starts vagrant environment (also provisions only on the FIRST vagrant up)
