Error on React Native when using Auth

Issue Description: What’s happening?

Reproduce the Issue: What steps can someone take to replicate the problem?


When I used 8base on my React Native app, Auth doesn’t work showing an error message.

I followed Quick Start section on the official docs.
First, it worked well on the web (as the docs covers.)

But when I tried the same thing with React Native, just referring to Auth or withAuth in codes after imports caused the error below and the app crashed.

import { Auth } from '@8base/auth';
import { withAuth } from '@8base/app-provider';

I’m running my app on expo.
This error occurred when I run on both a device and simulator.

Anything I’m missing or is this a known issue?
I suppose Authentication is still work-in-progress because I felt the documentation doesn’t cover all information developers need, but I just want to know I can solve this problem on my side or not.

Expected Behavior: What did you expect to happen?

No error occurs.

Actual Behavior: What actually happened?

The error occurs.

Were you able to resolve this @oisu Running into the same issue!

Hey there - our SDKs were designed for web as we don’t really have support for RN. I’ll work at putting together a tutorial for mobile authentication using React Native + 8base.

That would be awesome! Even Bacon and Expo have this example with expo-auth-session

Trying to get this example to work along with Apollo V3
