Will Live Deploy of Ionic Pro work on a Windows 10 App?

Hi there,
I’m building an app that needs to run on ios, android an windows(10). Now I got this working on all three platforms and needed to build it on a Mac and Windows to get it working, (which is not a piece of cake, what would it be great if you could build also a windows exe in the cloud!). I also see the great benefit of live deploy of course, that would save me a lot of hassle. But would that work for windows too?


Please can somebody provide an anwser? I’m struggling with this. I’m working on Windows 10. I have live deploy working on iOS working on my Mac, following the instruction on the video’s. But when I do the same for a different app on Windows 10. Building a Windows Universal App, live deploy of pro is not triggered when I commit to the ionic repo and do a deploy on the Master channel. This should work in Windows or not? I can’t find any documentation on that but only that it should work on all platforms.

  • ionic 3.19.0
  • cordova 7.1.0
  • npm 3.10.10
    <plugin name="cordova-plugin-ionic" spec="^2.0.3">
        <variable name="APP_ID" value="{hereIsMyAppId}" />
        <variable name="CHANNEL_NAME" value="Master" />
        <variable name="UPDATE_METHOD" value="auto" />
        <variable name="UPDATE_API" value="https://api.ionicjs.com" />
        <variable name="MAX_STORE" value="2" />

What could possibly go wrong there?


The plugin cordova-plugin-ionic only has native implementations for iOS and Android: https://github.com/ionic-team/cordova-plugin-ionic/tree/master/src So I would guess that Ionic Deploy will not work for Windows.

In a word, bummer. I would like to see native windows app support here… well, Mac also. :slight_smile:

You should probably made that heard here: https://github.com/ionic-team/cordova-plugin-ionic/issues/new

Or if you are more motivated - it’s on Github, so you can create a Pull Request with an implemetation…
