WebApps Center, and You


The first thing you'll need to do in order to use the WebApps Center is install it. Use one of our patented automagic install applications on your platform of choice. We support Linux, Macintosh OS X, and Windows 7.


Restarting the server, and you.

To restart the local server, you'll need to run these two commands, in order:

sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.spotterrf.apps.plist
sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.spotterrf.apps.plist

Deleting applications, and you.

To delete an application, you will need to manually remove the files that were installed with that application. All applications that Appr installs, are located under /usr/local/lib/spotterrf/mounts/. You'll be able to find apps, such as the Tracker Display installed there. To delete one of these apps, simply run the following command:

sudo rm -rf /usr/local/lib/spotterrf/mounts/appName

Be sure to replace appName with the name of the app you want to delete. Otherwise, you may run into problems down the line.

After the app is removed, you will need to restart the patented WebApps Center. To perform this action, please refer to the information above.

Publishing applications, and you.

Boy skippy, it couldn't be more easy to publish applications to the Appr store. Follow this easy 12 step process to publish an app:

  1. Login to your trusty sidekick server.
  2. Create a ~/src directory, if you haven't already.
  3. Copy your application files to a directory named ~/src/app-name.
  4. Change directory into ~/src/app-name
  5. Run any applicable build scripts.
  6. Create a package.json if you haven't already.
  7. Add publishConfig: { "registry": "http://your-npm-registry" } to package.json
  8. Add the line registry = http://your-npm-registry to your ~/.npmrc
  9. Run npm adduser --registry=http://user:pass@your-npm-registry and follow the steps.
  10. Make sure you're in the ~src/app-name directory.
  11. Run npm publish ./
