NativeScript Build Helper
This NPM package helps automate the release of NativeScript applications
** CURRENTLY A PRE-RELEASE **
- Node 4+
- NativeScript 2.5+
- Git version control
- fastlane (if automatic upload is need)
npm install @toolisticon/nativescript-buildhelper --save-dev
Or if you want to use the development version (nightly build), which maybe not stable!:
npm install @toolisticon/nativescript-buildhelper@next --save-dev
For those who haven't deployed any apps in v2.4 of NativeScript; one of the new features that is turned on by default is SnapShots. Now most the time this is a AWESOME thing, however occasionally this can cause issues. For example I have one app of mine that this crashes at startup when using SnapShots.
Now the docs do list how to disable snapshots; but it is a lot easier for me to find the notes on my own site than trying to figure out which doc has the info.
The environmental variable you need to adjust is: TNS_ANDROID_SNAPSHOT
0 = Force Snapshots off always 1 = Force snapshots on (including in debug mode) Unset = Snapshots only in Release mode
Use this command to append the build number to CFBundleVersion on iOS and to versionCode on Android:
If you need to debug the tests use the node-inspector:
npm run debug node-inspector --web-port=8282
You can then open chrome at http://127.0.0.1:8282/?port=5858 for debugging.
If you want to have verbose logging add NODE_DEBUG=tns_buildhelper_debug:
NODE_DEBUG=tns_buildhelper_debug node tns-buldnumbering
