Pulling the latest HollaEx Kit

HollaEx Kit relies on Git for managing and hosting code and supports Git commands for managing your repo for the new updates. git pull origin master is pretty much the entire process for updating your kit. Follow this guide to avoid code conflicts and making sure that the update goes as expected.

Committing changes

git add -A && git commit -m "my-commit-message"

Before starting, commit and changes you've made to your kit.

Checking the Git Remote

git remote -v

You always should check your Git Remote URL for your HollaEx Kit before pulling it. If the result is you can proceed to the next step.

But If it's pointing a different repository, You should set it to point Official HollaEx Kit repo first, before pulling it. You can set the remote repo by using the command below.

git remote set-url origin

Pulling the latest Kit

git pull origin master

This command will pull the latest Kit from GitHub. Current latest version is v1.3.

If you changed the Git Remote URL by using git remote set-url, you should revoke it to the old one at this step. Use git remote set-url <YOUR_GIT_REPO_URL> first, before proceed.

Resolving conflicts

You might face some conflicts due to the changes you made on your HollaEx Kit, including settings files configurations. Fix the conflicts through your code editor. You will most likely face conflicts at the settings files (/settings directory).

If the sensitive values (passwords) are causing conflicts, please make sure to accept the current values to keep the existing passwords.

Depends on user's setup and configurations, the part causing conflicts could be different. Please review them all clearly, and solve the conflict.

Upgrading HollaEx Core

Due to a bug which CLI v1.3 had for comparing the CLI versions, running hollaex upgrade would not upgrade the CLI version. The CLI version should be upgraded manually for this release. Please run the CLI installer once again at your Kit folder by following the guide below.


To upgrade the CLI manually to the latest version, simply run the CLI installer at your HollaEx Kit directory. The latest CLI should be v1.10.x.

hollaex upgrade

The upgrade command would bring your HollaEx Core version to the latest v1.23.0.

Follow the upgrade process with the CLI. Once it's all done, you'll be able to see the new HollaEx Core version number has been changed at /v1/health API endpoint. You could also use hollaex status command to check the status briefly.
