core-apps dev - help get started
Well maybe a too complicated goal for me ATM , but i managed to try to fix this annoying issue: https://github.com/ubports/messaging-app/issues/2 .
makeof the project went fine but by launching
src/messaging-appi got a
file:messaging-app.qml: No such file or directory. Tried with another core application, lead to the same error. Do we have something to do with env vars so that it can search in subdirectory for qml files ?
ok, last marius commit seems to fix the problem. now would like to know , by launching this new binary on my device, will it erase any datas or can conflict with existing messaging-app ? ( my device is my daily driver ) if so what will be the consequences ?
so i just notice that messaging-app is a system app not a core app, so i guess any updates comes with OTA, am i right ?
see list of core and system apps:
I think @Flohack must know this
We should be able to update also system apps with the Openstore but I will check back. Data will be kept after updates normally.
@flohack ok, just to confirm, by deploying messaging-app binary to my device, and launching it, it will not cause any damage to existing messaging app and datas ?
@lduboeuf How are you doing this?
This post is deleted!
@flohack sorry i missed the context of the question. I've deleted my previous reply.
I've just copied messaging-app built from github source to the device and make a
.desktoppointing to the binary.
The app crash on the device, but did not try to see why.
@lduboeuf Hmm I think you need to build a click at least. Than this needs to be installed with the OS tool, not just called as a binary. The packaging sets some paths right, and gives the right environment.
@flohack yes i was thinking about that too, thanks.
