    Default Desktop Packager

    Desktop Packager


    How are updates to our code deployed to the user if they run our app using the desktop packager? Do we have to send them a new packaged app each time we change our code?

    I want make sure I understand your question ..

    How else would they get the updated code/project? Are you referring to how it is packaged?

    Wasn't sure if its packaged as a shell of some sort and if it might read/get the javascript source files dynamically each time the user starts it up?

    To my knowledge, it created a compiled file that is to be updated. As an example, Sencha Architect uses packager. The Qt library and the compiled app.

    Was looking for an easy way to get around users who had IE7 and IE8 without having then download a new package when updates are made.

    Thanks

    I will have to get details on this. It is my understanding that this will be a standalone app and is not dependent on browser. A GUI library will be used (new version based on Chromium).

    Again using SA as an example, updates are detected when the app is loaded and automatically downloaded.

    From the blurb:

    With the Packager technology, based on Chromium, developers can use web technologies to build their apps and provide their users a first-class app experience on both Mac and Windows with no dependency on browsers.

    This would work

    Can the desktop packager be purchased as a standalone app for a single developer?

    You might have to contact sales for that answer. I believe it is only bundled at this point.
