cd ios && pod install && cd ..

Make a reproduction of the problem in App.js

react-native run-ios
react-native run-android

Opening issues

Verify that it is still an issue with the latest version as specified in the previous step. If so, open a new issue, include the entire App.js file, specify what platforms you've tested, and the results of running this command:

react-native info

If you suspect that you've found a spec conformance bug, then you can test using your component in a react-native-web project by forking this codesandbox, to see how different browsers render the same content: If any evergreen browser with significant userbase or other svg user agent renders some svg content better, or supports more of the svg and related specs, please open an issue asap.
