>                 Key: CB-7143
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-7143
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: OSX
>    Affects Versions: 3.5.0
>         Environment: OSX 10.9.4
>            Reporter: Tim Stewart
>
> Following instructions as per:
> https://github.com/apache/cordova-osx
> "Add the Cordova OSX Platform the a CLI project" [sic]
> does not work.
> I checked out cordova from master, completed all the npm linking as described in the
linked instructions and checked cordova version:
> 3.5.0-0.2.7-dev
> I then tried to follow this instruction: "patch the 2 projects with the patches provided
in the patches directory to enable the osx platform". I expected to be able to download and
git apply these patches in the git root for each of the two node modules - cordova-cli and
cordova-plugman. However, they are not set up correctly for this, and produced errors:
> error: platforms.js: No such file or directory
> error: src/platform.js: No such file or directory
> Indeed, the path locations in each patch do not seem to be vaild for any given location
within either module. I thus ended up finding all files named platform.js and platforms.js
(there are many, spread throughout the cordova-lib module within both cordova-cli and cordova-plugman),
eyeballing them to see which files matched the patch changes, and copy/pasting the changes
manually. (8 files in total, as the 4 "patched" files appear under cordova-lib in each cordova
module.)
> When running cordova platform add osx, I then got an error about an invaild location
for the ios-parser. I found the incorrect line in the "patched" cordova/platform.js and changed
it as follows:
> parser : './metadata/ios_parser',
> Following this I was able to add the osx platform and run the app.
> Needless to say, this is a frustrating developer experience. I don't know why the osx
platform information code is not included in cordova by default - it would seem to be fairly
well isolated from effects on any other platform - but if it is going to be "upgradable" in
this fashion, then the git patches should at least work. If they were designed to work (and
ever did work) with a specific version of the cordova modules, or in a different location
other than the git root, then that should be stated, instead of instructing the hapless developer
to clone cordova from master and providing no further clues.
