Learn how to use the sitemap to debug your app with Expo Router.

On native, you can use the uri-scheme CLI to test opening native links on a device.

For example, if you want to launch the Expo Go app on iOS to the /form-sheet route, run:

npx uri-scheme open exp:// --ios

Replace with the IP address shown when running npx expo start.

You can also search for links directly in a browser like Safari or Chrome to test deep linking on physical devices. Learn more about testing deep links.


Expo Router currently injects a /_sitemap automatically that provides a list of all routes in the app. This is useful for debugging.

To remove it, add a app/_sitemap.js and return a null component:

export default function Sitemap() {
  return null;
