CommonTime Infinity also includes a feature called ‘Live Preview’ which allows you to preview an app whilst continuing to develop using the Studio. Any changes made to the app (e.g. CSS, page content, logic, data) will be pushed to Live Preview in real time, so you can see how they will affect the application in a quick and efficient manner.
The App Studio and Live Preview can either be launched side-by-side on the same platform, or on separate environments. This allows you to develop the application on one platform (e.g. a desktop) whilst previewing the updates on another (e.g. a mobile device).
On desktops the Live Preview feature has been included alongside the App Studio and can be popped-out into a separate window using a button within the Studio. To use Live Preview on a devices is is necessary to install a separate ‘Live Preview’ app which can either be connected to a desktop version of the studio or launched alongside the Studio on the device.
Multiple instances of Live Preview can be connected to the Studio at the same time, allowing you to test across multiple devices and platforms at the same time. This is ideal where you are developing cross-platform applications and want to test new functionality/styling across a number of devices without the need to pass the app through the build process.
