First install: still fetching the build from appflow

Hi,

I’m evaluating AppFlow before upgrading to a paid plan. I could get all the bits working and it’s great.

I build my appstore pacakges locally so far. How can I make it so that the package contains the latest build from AppFlow, to prevent the app from downloading a “new” package upon first start?

I can’t find the mechanism used by appflow to identify whether or not it already has the latest version.

Thanks,

Hi derceto,
Appflow uses the deploy manifest file(pro-manifest.json) inside the built web directory (www) to compare and download the live updates as needed.

If the native build consists the latest manifest file, then the live update is not downloaded as it is unnecessary. You can refer to the docs here: Differentials - Ionic Documentation

If you are facing any further issues, I would encourage you to contact the Appflow support for further assistance.

Thanks,
