Can I distribute two different versions of an extension for mobile and desktop under the same add-on?


I have an extension project with two branches for mobile and desktop, I want to publish both of them together and that users on the mobile will get the mobile version and people of the desktop get the desktop version. The way I did it 'till now is publishing version let’s say 0.4 for mobile and then 0.5 for desktop, I don’t think it is the way to go and I’m pretty sure there is a better way to manage this.

Thank you for your help,

Ideally you should be using the same file for both, and conditioning the code that is specific for each platform.

Thank you for your response,
I’m kinda surprised because that sounds problematic, what if my desktop add-on has a heavy react client and my mobile add-on is just a slim background process?
I don’t think I can eliminate source code with conditioning…

Are you concerned about the bundle size and the code evaluation time of your extension?

Mainly the bundle size.
It’s not a theoretical question, I experienced this exact situation and had to remove the visual client from my add-on so it would be compatible with mobile, as mobile add-ons have stricter limitations when it comes to size (if I remember correctly, it wasn’t recently).
