I cannot use [Update] button on the Dashboard to refresh the app after I have made some modifications to the implementation.


  1. Load an app from local file system.
  2. Make some modifications to the HTML files of the app
  3. Press [Update] button - it will show an banner on simulator that the app is installed
  4. relaunch the app. to check

The app has been updated.

It still shows the old state of the app.

After deleting the offline cache in the Gaia profile, it could work to refresh the app.
However, I think it would be better to resolve this issue for developer to modify and try their app.


I'm having the exactly same issue here

This might be a duplicate of #66. @digitarald: what do you think?


digitarald commented Jan 28, 2013

True, #66 should solve that issue. Also seems like the app wasn't killed; which the webapp actor should offer as option when re-installing an app.


mykmelez commented Jan 28, 2013

Hmm, seems like it should just do it automatically when reinstalling an app, since there's no question at that point: the developer certainly wants to see the new version of the app.

Killing the app was fixed by #314. The rest of this request seems identical to #66, so let's use that issue to track it.
