How to create Package manifest dynamically?

    Question

  • Hello,

    I have a single app that is used by two different client, each of them have their own branding, so right now every time when I create package for this client I have to go in package manifest and than need to do changes for icons and package name every time. 

    Is there any way so that I can just set client name some where and than instruct package manifest to look at resources depending on the client name?

    Thanks in advance.

  • you need to change the xmlbefore creating the package. So there won't be special xml for the store
