How do I iterate a published app?


This may be a silly question but i haven’t been able to find an answer to my question in the documentation for app framework development as that focuses on initial development and deployment.

I have developed and deployed an app for a space and the bundle is hosted on Contentful. I now need to test a new change to the app before deploying the next version.

How can i switch the app URL back to localhost without without doing so in the app definition as i assume this will also break the app in production?


Hi Oliver,

Changing the app definition to localhost would break the app in production.

If you want to iterate on an app that is already published, I’d recommend creating a second app definition for further development. You can use this app definition to test your changes, and then when they are ready publish them to the main app definition.

Gotcha, thanks John!
