Upgrade Appkit in Existing Apps

When you create an Appkit webapp, it uses a specific version of Appkit. Appkit releases occur independently of App Studio releases.

You can upgrade web apps to use the latest version of Appkit.

How to upgrade
  1. Stop the app.

  2. In the package.json file at the root of your project, update the appkit-ui dependency to the latest Appkit version, for example:

    "appkit-ui": "http://appkit.lucidworks.com/repo/4.2.0/appkit-ui.tar.gz",
  3. In the pom.xml file at the root of your project, update the value of the parent.version property to the latest Appkit version, for example:

        <parent>
            <groupId>twigkit</groupId>
            <artifactId>twigkit.app.js</artifactId>
            <version>4.2.0</version>
        </parent>
  4. Upgrade the Appkit Social module, if required.

  5. Perform any additional upgrade steps that are required for a specific Appkit upgrade. See the Appkit Release Notes for more information.

  6. Start the app.
