I’m developing a cordova app and hot code push is not working to an android build I created that I installed from APK. It is a signed release apk sideloaded to an android phone (not through the play store)
I think it works for build files because you’ve a Gitlab’s CI configured and you are constantly deploying. Why you want HOC enabled in production? I think what they’re saying here is that the same HOC capability can be used to updated clients code without having them download the APK again.
Are you pointing to a local dev server or a remote production server?
Ok. So I found the culprit now. It was a mismatch of Meteor version.
My machine that created the APk build at Meteor 220.127.116.11
Gitlab-runner machine creating the server build at Meteor 1.6.1
I learned something new with this CI/CD thing. Now I need to remember to add meteor update in the build script whenever I updated meteor. I also removed caching in my CI build script just to be safe (longer build of just 1 minute)
