Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-5520) Should we add "DEBUG=1" to "Preprocessor Macros"->"Debug" ?

Andrew Grieve commented on CB-5520:

I've done quite a bit of work with .xcconfig files in the past.

There's 4 layers of inheritance:
1. Xcode Defaults
2. Project .xcconfig
3. Target .xcconfig
4. Target settings (what we're using now)

Each layer can inherit from the above via $(inherted), but you can't append or inherit from
settings on the same level.

For this reason, I think it makes sense for us to provide a Target .xcconfig, so that users
can set their own settings on either side of it (2 & 4).

For an upgrade path, I think it'd be great to have the update script do some pbxproj munging
1. Add the .xcconfig
2. Delete *all* settings that we set (or maybe everything except PRODUCT_NAME?)

Failing this, we could just have the update script fail with a message saying "Recreate your

> But the debug info is never outputted.If I use  ALog, the info can be outputted, so I
think it probably has something to do with the "DEBUG" macro.
> After I added "DEBUG=1" to "Preprocessor Macros", ran the helloCordova target, DLog can
