Hyperloop: Hyperloop is only downloaded when creating a project


    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: None
    • Resolution: Duplicate
    • Affects Version/s: Release 5.4.0
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Core, Titanium
    • Environment:

      Windows 10 Pro, OSX 10.11.5
      Appc core: 5.4.0-40
      Appc NPM: 4.2.7
      Ti SDK: 5.4.0.v20160809033140

    • Severity:



      Currently, Hyperloop will only be downloaded when a user creates a project. This means that in order to get a new version of Hyperloop a user will have to be instructed to create a new project.

      For example

      • User has been active in 5.4.0 beta and RC, created a project to test out Hyperloop and has been using Hyperloop 1.2.5
      • 5.4.0 goes GA, Hyperloop 1.2.6 is released, user attempts to use this version in their app but finds that they cannot download the latest version.
      • User creates new project in order to get this new version of Hyperloop

      I see a number of problems with this

      • Breaks from the current UX for new versions of modules. Most are bundled in the SDK, or Studio will prompt the user to install a new module if it is a restricted module.
      • Counter-intuitive to have to create a project to update a module
      • Forces a user to create a 'junk app' or reimport their app every time they need to update Hyperloop
      Steps to reproduce
      1. Delete all Hyperloop module versions and plugins off your machine
      2. In prod create a new project, at the time of writing this should get you 1.2.5
      3. Switch to preprod where the Hyperloop at the time of writing is 1.2.6
      4. Build an already created project with Hyperloop already enabled
      5. Delete Hyperloop from your machine
      6. Rebuild the project
      Actual result

      Latest version of Hyperloop will not be downloaded in step 4
      The project will keep erroring with the below as it can't find the Hyperloop module

      [ERROR] Could not find all required Titanium Modules:
      [ERROR]    id: hyperloop            version: 1.2.7     platform: iphone           deploy-type: development

      Expected result

      Latest version of Hyperloop should be downloaded on a build
