Run the application in developer mode.
To run the app, run:
$ briefcase dev
The first time the application runs in developer mode, any requirements listed in a requires configuration item in pyproject.toml will be installed into the current environment.
The following options can be provided at the command line.
-a <app name> /
--app <app name#
Run a specific application target in your project. This argument is only required if your project contains more than one application target. The app name specified should be the machine-readable package name for the app.
Update application requirements.
Do not run the application; only install application requirements.
Run the test suite in the development environment.
If you want to pass any arguments to your app’s command line, you can specify them
-- marker to separate Briefcase’s arguments from your app’s arguments.
briefcase dev -- --wiggle --test
will run the app in normal mode, passing the
--test flags to
the app’s command line. The app will not run in Briefcase’s test mode; the
--test flag will be left for your own app to interpret.
