##Theme Expo Remote include several themes. By default, we use the "default" theme. Every theme contains 2 folders :

  • "css" who contains the CSS file
  • "images" who contains images require for the theme

You can easy use a CSS include on Expo Remote by changing the URL. Example :

<link rel="stylesheet" href=""/>

You can too develop your own CSS by creating a new folder, or override an existing theme.
