To update the app and the plugin, when new updates are available on Envato, you have two choices:

By us

  • Download all the files.
  • Delete and re-install the plugin with the new version, the data will not be removed from your website.
  • Soft update: ask us to do it for you, it is included in your previous Publishing Service (if you have one).
  • Hard update: buy a new Publish Service and let us do it for you.

By yourself

  • Download all the files.
  • Delete and re-install the plugin with the new version, the data will not be removed from your website.
  • Soft update: Replace just the source directory and the config.xml file, then change manually the config.xml file and the Constants.ts file with your data (map key, URL of your website, app name etc…). In that way, you don’t touch the resource directory and the icons will be the same.
  • Hard update: Replace all the files of the app with the newer ones, then follows the same steps as a newer app.

You need a Hard update if the new version of the app requires the updates of the dependencies or the adding of new components. So, if the version differences are by the first or second digit. It means, e.g., from 1.1.0 to 1.2.0 or to 2.0.0.

You need a Soft update if the new version is just a bug fixing: for example if you pass from 1.0.1 to 1.0.2
