ax apps package

ax apps subcommand is deprecated

Managing apps via the Actyx CLI is deprecated and will no longer be supported in future ActyxOS versions.

Package an app into a tarball for deployment
USAGE:
ax apps package [FLAGS] [PATH]
FLAGS:
-h, --help Prints help information
-V, --version Prints version information
-v Verbosity level. Add more v for higher verbosity
(-v, -vv, -vvv, etc.)
ARGS:
<PATH> Path to the app manifest of the app to package or the directory
that contains it [default: ax-manifest.yml]

The ax apps package command will write the packaged app as a tarball to disk, which can then be deployed.

Here are a couple of example uses of the ax apps package command:

Example Usage
# Package an app in the current directory with default manifest ax-manifest.yml
ax apps package
# Package an app in the current directory with manifest another-manifest.yml
ax apps package another-manifest.yml
# Package the app in the specified directory myApp with default manifest
# ax-manifest.yml
ax apps package myApp/
# Package an app in the specified directory myApp with manifest
# myApp/another-manifest.yml
ax apps package myApp/another-manifest.yml
Want to save the package somewhere else than the app directory?

The ax apps package command always stores its output in the directory from which it was called. If you would like to save the output somewhere else, you should call the Actyx CLI from that directory and provide it the path to the directory containing the app manifest or the path to the actual manifest. Here is an example:

Example Usage
cd ../../../apps-packages
ax apps package ../projects/actyx-os/apps/example-app-1
