nativeapp

Description

  • Add a new native application version to the currently activated Cauldron

Syntax

ern cauldron add nativeapp <descriptor>
Arguments
<descriptor>
  • A complete native application descriptor representing the native application version to be added to the Cauldron.
Example
ern cauldron add nativeapp MyNativeApp:ios:17.14.0
Options
--platformVersion/-v
  • Use specified platform version
--copyFromVersion/-c <version>
  • Copy the data of a native application version stored in the Cauldron.
  • Possible values for this option are :
    • A specific version, for example 1.2.3
    • latest if you want to copy the data from the latest version of the native application
    • none if you don't want any copy from action
  • The --copyFromVersion/-c <version> option also copies the list of native dependencies and MiniApps as well as the container version to the new native application version.
  • If you use the --copyFromVersion/-c <version> option, you do not need to add all MiniApps again after creating a new native application version in the Cauldron.
  • This option is commonly used.
--description
  • Description of the native application version
--config
  • Configuration to set for this new native application version
  • If not provided, the configuration of the version copied from will be used (if any).
  • There is three different ways to provide the configuration :
    • As a json string
      For example --config '{"configKey": "configValue"}'
    • As a file path
      For example --config /etc/config.json
      In that case, the configuration will be read from the file
    • As a Cauldron file path
      For example --extra cauldron://config/myapp-android.json
      In that case, the configuration will be read from the file stored in Cauldron.
      For this way to work, the file must exist in Cauldron (you can add a file to the cauldron by using the [ern cauldron add file] command).

Remarks

  • The ern cauldron add nativeapp <descriptor> command is usually used when the development of a new version of the native application is started.
  • The new native application version is identified by the complete native application description in the Cauldron.
