Contribute to the Progress Telerik AppBuilder Command-Line Interface

Help us improve the AppBuilder CLI

Telerik AppBuilder

The AppBuilder CLI lets you build, test, deploy, and publish hybrid mobile apps for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 8 from your favorite IDE or code editor. You can develop your projects locally from the convenience of your favorite code editor and run the command-line to test, build, deploy in the simulator or on devices, and publish your applications to the App Store or Google Play.

Contribute to the Code Base

First, read our developers documentation.

Before you submit a Pull Request, consider the following guidelines.

  • Search GitHub for an open or closed Pull Request that relates to your submission.
  • Clone the repository.
    git clone
  • Initialize the submodule.
    git submodule init
  • Fetch data from the submodule.
    git submodule update
  • Make your changes in a new git branch. We use the Gitflow branching model so you will have to branch from our master branch.
    git checkout -b my-fix-branch master
  • Create your patch and include appropriate test cases.
  • Build your changes locally.
  • Ensure all the tests pass.
    grunt ts:devall
    npm test
  • Commit your changes and create a descriptive commit message (the commit message is used to generate release notes).
    git commit -a
  • Push your branch to GitHub.
    git push origin my-fix-branch
  • In GitHub, send a Pull Request to icenium-cli:master.
  • If we suggest changes, you can modify your branch, rebase, and force a new push to your GitHub repository to update the Pull Request.
    git rebase master -i
    git push -f

That's it! Thank you for your contribution!

When the patch is reviewed and merged, you can safely delete your branch and pull the changes from the main (upstream) repository.

  • Delete the remote branch on GitHub.
    git push origin --delete my-fix-branch
  • Check out the master branch.
    git checkout master -f
  • Delete the local branch.
    git branch -D my-fix-branch
  • Update your master branch with the latest upstream version.
    git pull --ff upstream master
