I’m developing an ionic 5 Angular app called boost and i’m currently using Microsoft Appcenter CodePush for hot code pushes / live updates which is suboptimal. I want to switch to Ionic Appflow but have one question which i can’t find any resources for:
When i publish a new Appflow version for live updating my app, is the update size my complete app bundle or a patch/diff containing only the changed files?
I’m unhappy with MS CodePush because the first update i introduce there is always 100% of my bundle (including all assets). This is a major bummer since i can’t update small js/ts files without forcing my userbase to download the entire app in the background during a time where they don’t expect large downloads to happen. (mobile dataplan issues etc.)
And i would much rather support the ionic project with my subscription fees when my app gets larger than MS… so i’d love to make the switch
Cheers and thanks for the great framework
