Atlassian Remote Apps Plugin is a plugin that supports a type of plugin called a Remote App. https://bitbucket.org/mrdon/remoteapps-plugin When getting started developing the Atlassian Remote Apps plugin, these commands will come in handy. You may need to run a 'mvn install' from the project directory first before running these commands in the '/plugin' directory. * Start the plugin in the desired product: Refapp: mvn amps:debug Confluence: mvn amps:debug -Dproduct=confluence JIRA: mvn amps:debug -Dproduct=jira * Deploy the plugin at runtime in the desired product: Refapp: mvn amps:cli Confluence: mvn amps:cli -Dproduct=confluence JIRA: mvn amps:cli -Dproduct=jira * Deploy the test plugin (code in src/test/resources) with the cli 'tpi' for test plugin installation, works like the usual 'pi' * Test your changes in all three products at once - open up three terminals and execute the above amps:debug commands, one per product. You will also need three more tabs for each of the 'cli' invocations. For help writing your own Remote App, see the README.txt in the sample/ directory.
