Deploy to Repository
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.
The following Repository App Settings determine the Github Team and Applications repositories and their respective usernames:
|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.
Creating a Lianja Package File
These are created in the Deploy workspace. See here for full details.
Deploying to the Team and Applications Repositories
After creating a Lianja package file, it can be published to the Team or Release GitHub repository from the Team Development and Release Management tab in the Deploy workspace.
As well as package publishing (uploading), the buttons allow for repository packages to be listed or unpublished (deleted).
|Repositories||Team | Release.|
|Publish button||Upload the specified package to the selected repository.|
|Unpublish button||Delete the specified package from the selected repository.|
|List button||List the packages in the selected repository (public repositories only).|
