• Add one or more new native dependencies to a target native application version container (Cauldron)

  • Generate and publish a new Container version


ern cauldron add dependencies <dependencies..>



  • One or more dependencies (delimited by spaces) to add to a target native application version in the Cauldron.

  • You can only add native dependency versions that have been published to NPM.

  • You cannot use the file or git schemes for the dependency(ies).


--containerVersion/-v <version>

  • Specify a version for the new container

  • Default Incremental patch number of the current container version

    Example: If the current container version is 1.2.3 and a version is not included in the command, the new container version will be 1.2.4.

--descriptor/-d <descriptor>

  • Add the native dependencies to a given target native application version in the Cauldron matching the provided native application descriptor

  • You can only pass a complete native application descriptor as the native dependencies added using this command target only a specific single native application version.

    Default Lists all non-released native application versions from the Cauldron and prompts you to choose one to add to the native dependencies


  • The ern cauldron add dependencies <dependencies..> command is rarely used.

  • Native dependencies used by the MiniApps are automatically added to the native application version Container if they are not yet present in the Container.

  • This command can be used to add react-native native dependencies that are not directly used by the MiniApp but only used on the native side.

  • An error message is displayed if the command is not formatted correctly.
