Briefcase configuration options#
When briefcase runs, it will download the support files, tools, and SDKs necessary to support building and packaging apps. By default, it will store the files in a platform-native cache folder:
If you want to use a different folder to store the Briefcase resources, you can
BRIEFCASE_HOME environment variable.
There are three restrictions on this path specification:
The path must already exist. If it doesn’t exist, you should create it manually.
It must not contain any spaces.
It must not be on a network drive.
The second two restrictions both exist because some of the tools that Briefcase uses (in particular, the Android SDK) do not work in these locations.
