This allows developers to deploy application packages to the 'Team' or 'Applications' repositories in github. This is a major productivity improvement providing centralized application distribution and update management.

App Settings

The following Repository App Settings determine the Github Team and Applications repositories and their respective usernames:

Item Description
Team repository Github team repository name, e.g. Lianja/LianjaX
Team repository username Github team repository username for authentication
Applications repository Github apps repository, e.g. Lianja/LianjaApps
Applications repository username Github apps repository username for authentication

Downloading from the Team Repository

Application packages can be downloaded from the Team Repository in the Team workspace. A tile will be displayed for each package available in the Team repository for the current Team repository username account. Depending on whether the package has already been installed or not, the tile allows the App to be opened or the package downloaded.

Downloading from the Applications Repository

End users can download packaged Lianja applications from the Repository panel in the Lianja App Center. If an App has already been downloaded, the displayed tile allows the App to be opened or notifies of an available update.
