Auto Updates Not Working

Post by Deon »

What I have also noticed in another app where it seems to work is that the messages "checking for updates" is not displayed resulting in that you can go into the app and do stuff, just to be thrown out of the app. This does not make sense. What happerned to the message spinner. Please put it back.

Auto Updates Not Working

Post by Galyna Abramovych »

Deon,

The auto-update feature works fine but you are right - the previous indicator is not available in the libraries version 5.0.

We are really sorry, but there is no way it can be included back. (

Now, to make sure the feature works for your app:

1. Right after you enable the plugin, for example you have to build and install the application to your device.
2. After that, you can make changes and click on "Export-Auto Update".
3. Open the installed application.
4. Please wait a few minutes to refresh the application with a new version.

You can make some changes on the start page to check if you can see them immediately.

Auto Updates Not Working

I think the app was corrupt. Alerts and console.logs were not working either. I killed the app and started a new app from scratch. Its working but.....

Your auto update is not professional. IE. When I login the app kicks me out again and then I have to re-login again because the Auto Updatewas not complete but app did not prevent me from executing while auto update still in progress.
As a user, this will cause frustration as it looks like an error.

You need to fix this. This is not acceptable operation. Very shoddy.

This functionality is based on cordova-hot-code-push plugin: https://github.com/nordnet/cordova-ho....
which is recommended by Ionic: https://ionicframework.com/docs/nativ...

If you need to change it's behavior, you can use any another similar plugin or change the existing one.

Unlucky it is deprecated: https://github.com/nordnet/cordova-ho...

Hi
It seems I have another "corrupt" app. Auto Updates stopped working after I installed Cordova Email Plugin. I then uninstalled the email plugin again, Auto Updates still not working.

Deon,

Could you please specify if you are using the latest Appery.io library for this project?
There are some details you should be aware of. Check the section "Auto-updating of Projects with Deprecated Libraries Versions" in this document: https://docs.appery.io/docs/appexport-a ... tic-update.

Also, did you rebuild the app after reinstalling the corrupt plugin?

Resolved. I disabled all plugins untill I found the culprits. There was more than one.
This is a huge problem, Cordova not being backward compatible with older plugins. I have now lost functionality and my app is basically useless unless I find a workaround.
