Appcelerator CLI 5.2.0 - 22 February 2016

Appcelerator CLI 5.2.0 is a minor release that includes a few improvements and several bug fixes.

As of this release, CLI 5.1.x will not be supported six months from 5.2.0.GA's release date. See Axway Appcelerator Deprecation Policy and Nominal Lifetimes documents for details.

Component Versions

The following components are shipped with CLI 5.2.0:

Arrow Builder1.7.27
Arrow Cloud CLI1.1.0
Titanium CLI5.0.6


  • CLI-746 - Add SPDX-compliant license string
    • Users can now use the SPDX "LicenseRef-LICENSE" instead of "Appcelerator Commercial" in the package.json files to avoid the "license should be a valid SPDX license expression" warning.

    • The root also now includes a file
  • CLI-852 - appc run can not set port for Arrow apps
    • You can now set the port for Arrow apps by using this command: appc run --port xxxx
  • CLI-858 - Add timestamps to logging output
    • When using -l trace or -l debug, a timestamp is added to log levels of the output. For example:

  • CLI-934 - Output warning message if appc-install is less than 4.2.3-2
    • Appc CLI 5.2.0 requires appc-install 4.2.3-2+ to work. If a lesser version is installed, users will see the following error message:
