Nativescript-store-update

npm npm

NPM

This plugin allows you to define a notification strategy regarding your app updates. You are able to specify if you want to force, offer or ignore an update based on the new version available in the platform store.

For example, you could want to force all major version update, but offer the option to your user to chose to update or skip a minor or patch version.

You can also specify how many days after the update release you want to display the alert.

Prerequisites

You need to add appversion plugins for this one to work:

tns plugin add nativescript-appversion

Installation

tns plugin add nativescript-store-update

Usage

In your main.ts or app.ts file, before app start, call StoreUpdate.init with desired options like so:

    import { StoreUpdate, AlertTypesConstants } from "nativescript-store-update";

StoreUpdate.init({
notifyNbDaysAfterRelease: 1,
majorUpdateAlertType: AlertTypesConstants.OPTION
})

Localization

The plugin contains some default translations inside json files located in src/i18n folder and required by hand in the src/helpers/locales.helper.ts file. You can also specify a custom translation in the plugin initialization through the configuraiton options. If you want to contribute a regionalized translation, you must use the lang-regionCode format specified in Apple doc, but with the country lowercased (ex: fr-ca, en-us)
