Packages

The LingoHub packages help you to manage the versioning of your applications and provide you with a backup system for your translations. They also allow you to perform OTA (Over The Air) updates by immediately delivering your latest translations to your mobile clients whenever you activate a new release. To use the packages features, you need to be subscribed to at least the basic plan.

Accessing the packages

To access the packages feature, follow the steps below:

  1. Click dashboard in the top navigation bar.
  2. Select a project from the left side panel.
  3. Click on resources in the dashboard overview of the project.
  4. Click on packages.

You will be redirected to an overview of previously created packages. No packages will be displayed if you have not yet created one.

On the packages management site, you can find the following information:

1 - The basic package information - displays the data you entered when creating your package. You can update the data and the backup strategy.

2 - Package releases - a package release consists of a zip archive of all your project's resource files at the time the release was created. There are three ways of adding a new release to your package:

  • Automatic generation - by activating the automatically generate option. When creating or updating your package, check this box and set the period you want your releases to be generated.

The number of package releases that you can create depends on your subscription plan.
Note: Adding a new release when you reach the limit will automatically delete the oldest non-active release.

When you have more than one package release, you can change the active release. The active release will automatically be delivered to your mobile clients.
