SyntaxError: Invalid regular expression: /(.*\\__fixtures__\\.*|node_modules[\\\]react[\\\]dist[\\\].*|website\\node_modules\\.*|heapCapture\\bundle\.js|.*\\__tests__\\.*)$/: Unterminated character class
    at new RegExp ()
    at blacklist (D:\demo\app-kindie\node_modules\metro-config\src\defaults\blacklist.js:34:10)

It appears in \node_modules\metro-config\src\defaults\blacklist.js, there is an invalid regular expression that needed changed. You have to change the first expression under sharedBlacklist from:

var sharedBlacklist = [


var sharedBlacklist = [

Then you MUST clean project (go to android folder):

cd android
.\gradlew clean

go back working folder and build again:

cd ..
react native run-android
