[SOLVED] RCT-Folly error when using hermes with iOS

Issue

When enabling hermes in the Podfile and rebuilding the build it fails due to RCT-Folly. No idea what it does.

To re-initialise everything I use the following:

rm -rf node_modules && rm package-lock.json && npm install && cd ios && rm -rf Pods && rm Podfile.lock && pod deintegrate && pod setup && pod install && cd ..

I also start the metro bundler with:

npx react-native --reset-cache

Anyone has a solution?

The app uses react-native v0.64 and we want to have a better performance using hermes.

All information:

target 'unblnd' do
  config = use_native_modules!
  use_react_native!(
    :path => config[:reactNativePath],
    :hermes_enabled => true
  )

Solution

After lots of trial and error I found a working solution. It’s a bit strange, but I had to enable Flipper. I did not find a way without it.

Thanks to this answer: https://github.com/facebook/react-native/issues/31179#issuecomment-831932941 I found out about fixing Pods.

This is my Podfile now:

  ...

  # Enables Flipper.
  #
  # Note that if you have use_frameworks! enabled, Flipper will not work and
  # you should disable these next few lines.
  use_flipper!({ 'Flipper' => '0.87' })
  post_install do |installer|
    flipper_post_install(installer)

    find_and_replace("Pods/Headers/Private/RCT-Folly/folly/synchronization/DistributedMutex-inl.h",
    "atomic_notify_one(state)", "folly::atomic_notify_one(state)")

    find_and_replace("Pods/Flipper-Folly/folly/synchronization/DistributedMutex-inl.h",
    "atomic_wait_until(&state, previous | data, deadline)", "folly::atomic_wait_until(&state, previous | data, deadline)")
  end

  ...
