September release $a, $v, Appery Helper and Global Functions

Today we are pleased to announce the September release of with new alias $a of Appery helper, global variable $v and global functions!

Let’s look at what’s new



‘$a’ is an alias for the Appery helper ‘Apperyio’. Now, instead of writing:


you can use a much shorter form:




‘$v’ is an alias for global variables that were previously accessed through Apperyio.vars.

$v is a place for storing any data as ‘global’. For example, to transfer data between screens.

this.$v.myData = 12345;
this.$v.userInfo = {id: 123, name: 'Joe'};

For more detailed information about ‘$v’, you can refer to our documentation


Appery Helper

The list of functions and properties for the Appery helper ‘$a’ has been significantly expanded. This expansion greatly simplifies the invocation of the most commonly used operations. For example, if you need to display a modal window and pass parameters to it, this can now be achieved in a single line of code:

let data = await this.$a.modal("EditUser", {name: 'john'});

If you need to display a loading indicator, a simple call will do:

await this.$a.showLoading();

And if you need to perform a GET request:

let res = await this.$a.get("");

You can explore the full list of available functions on this page:


Global Functions

Global functions have been added. Now, in the Functions section under Modal and Storage, you can define a function, for example ‘sum’, which will be accessible on all screens, custom components, services, etc., using this.$v.sum()


For more detailed information about global functions, you can refer to our documentation


We believe this new feature will be of great value to our users. We appreciate your continued use of, and we wish you a happy developing!

Support for Android 13, API level 33

We’re excited to announce the introduction of the latest release, which includes support for Android 13 (API level 33).

While many of the Appery projects were upgraded automatically, we aimed to keep manual application changes to a minimum to ensure a smooth transition for all users.
– Please ensure that you have not manually modified the config.xml file in the source tab. If any modifications were made to this file, kindly follow these steps: Remove the file and execute the “Undo all source changes” operation for the CORDOVA folder.


– Additionally, for some users, it may be necessary to access the App Settings. From there, navigate to Cordova Config, then proceed to the Android tab. Ensure that the property “GradlePluginKotlinVersion” is present with the value “1.6.20” (refer to the provided image for visual guidance). If this property is missing, kindly add it manually.


We believe this new feature will be of great value to our users. We appreciate your continued use of, and we wish you a happy developing!

Great News: “Autoupdate” Plug-in is added to Apps

There is another great news we are happy to share with you today: the Autoupdate plug-in has been added to all apps and is ready to be used.

Adding this plug-in is simple and requires zero effort on your part to set it up. But when added, it just gets the job done. 

The idea behind it is as simple as it can possibly be:

  • You add the plug-in to your app and publish it so that your users can install it on their devices.
  • Next time you need to make changes to your app you just make them and push the app updates.
  • With the next app run on the device, the plug-in automatically detects there is a new update on the server and lets the end user make decisions on whether to download it from the server and then install it on their device or postpone this action:
