We are running a single page app that does not have the sencha cmd structure , but a custom one.
We don't have a .sencha folder with sencha.cfg ( I got the impression that it is not required when you do a custom build according to the guides). Running the command gives an error because of that.

As far as the guides explain it the folder is not necessary when applications with custom structure are being build since the 'sencha app build ' command will not work anyway.

'While the convenient commands like sencha app build won't understand these applications and
so cannot be used, you can use lower-level commands provided by Sencha Cmd to produce builds and
perform all of the same tasks'
Is there a solution to the problem without doing 'sencha app refresh' ?
