LiveSyncing Your Changes

Progress AppBuilder LiveSync lets you make changes to the app in the code editor and see those changes applied in real time in the simulator and across connected devices. With a single three-finger tap-and-hold gesture, you can apply your code changes to devices over the air.

AppBuilder LiveSync is a development service that facilitates rapid testing during development and is not intended to deliver public updates to end users. AppManager LiveSync is a distribution service that lets you deliver updates straight to an installed app on the devices of your end users.

You can LiveSync the following changes.

  • Adding files and folders, except for adding files and folders in the Plugins folder.
  • Removing files and folders, except for removing files and folders in the Plugins folder.
  • Renaming files and folders, except for renaming files and folders in the Plugins folder.
  • Modifying and replacing files and folders, except for icons, splash screens, Info.plist, AndroidManifest.xml, WMAppManifest.xml, config.xml for iOS, config.xml for Android, config.xml for Windows Phone, and plugin.xml for your custom plugins.
  • Modifying the code and resources of the host app of an Apple Watch bundle.
