I am looking if we can package and deploy/publish the live app through any bash or nodejs scripts. Could someone confirm if thats possible? and if Yes, how?

Thanks, Vally

This is possible, although does require having credentials configured - this guide outlines what a normal release cycle might look like: https://quip.com/dev/liveapps/1.x.x/guide/manage-release-cycles

The command you're looking for is probably quip-cli publish, which is documented here: https://github.com/quip/quip-apps/tree/next/packages/quip-cli#qla-publish

The short answer is that before deploying, you'd need to authenticate the command line using quip-cli login - this will create a .quiprc file with an access token in it in your $HOME directory. In theory you could manually generate this file in a CI environment using a token that you've generated in a different environment if you'd like to automate publishing.

One caveat is that Live Apps require that the manifest version is bumped every time you publish - you can do this easily by running quip-cli bump in the project directory. You can also increment the user-facing version number at the same time by using quip-cli bump [increment] as per https://github.com/quip/quip-apps/tree/next/packages/quip-cli#qla-bump-increment
