Patch a Development app package rather than completely rebuilding it.

Supported platforms:

Use the PatchPackage option in your build script to rebuild and deploy code changes. Patching the code in a project can be significantly faster than rebuilding the entire application. Before you can patch an application, a full, earlier build must already be installed on the device. You can do that using the Build And Run button on the Build Settings window or with a build script. In either case, both the full build and the patch build must be Development builds.

To patch a package, build the project using the following options in your build script: BuildOptions.BuildScriptsOnly | BuildOptions.PatchPackage | BuildOptions.Development. Alternately, you can click the Patch or Patch And Run buttons on the Build Settings window.

Note: Only files related to scripts are patched; no other assets are processed or deployed.
