Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-3376) cordova build ios fails silently
Date Mon, 13 May 2013 13:01:18 GMT


Ian Clelland commented on CB-3376:

The build script should exit with the status of the xcodebuild command; it's the last command
in the script.

>From the xcodebuild man page,

   *Exit Codes*

       *xcodebuild* exits with codes defined by sysexits(3).  It will exit with *EX_OK* on
success.  On failure, it will commonly exit with
       *EX_USAGE* if any options appear malformed, *EX_NOINPUT* if any input files cannot
be found, *EX_IOERR* if any files cannot
       be read or written, and *EX_SOFTWARE* if the commands given to xcodebuild fail.  It
may exit with other codes in less common

I would think that any CI system should be able to interpret that status -- is there additional
output that would be more useful?

> When running a build, if the xcodebuild command fails, there is no output or notification.
> This is especially painful when running a continuous integration system, or build runner
(like grunt), as it thinks all is fine, but just as bad when doing an individual build, as
you have no idea if there was a problem, until you try and install the app.
