Nativescript hook plugin to maintain native app version

This plugin takes the version and versionNumber properties from package.json and puts on the specific platform resources: AndroidManifest.xml file for the Android sources, and Info.plist for iOS sources.

Compatible with NS 6.

How to use

$ tns plugin add nativescript-dev-version

The above command installs this module and installs the necessary NativeScript hooks.

Then, specify and maintain the desired release version on the ./package.json file under the nativescript.version property, for example:

"nativescript": {
"id": "org.nativescript.MySampleApp",
"version": "1.2.3",
"versionNumber": "1"


"version": "1.2.3",
"versionNumber": "1"

When running tns prepare ... the hooks will take care of the native resources.

On iOS, your Info.plist will get:


On Android, AndroidManifest.xml will have:

(...) android:versionCode="10203001" android:versionName="1.2.3"

Breaking changes

When upgading to v0.1.3, for iOS you MUST add "versionNumber": "[value]" to correctly apply on CFBundleVersion in the Info.plist
