Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-9500) Not allowed to have XCodeProject display name different from Cordova project name
Date Mon, 19 Oct 2015 18:32:28 GMT


ASF subversion and git services commented on CB-9500:

Commit 69e4d8472b542193b545495ee5e9bfd2ab6e923c in cordova-ios's branch refs/heads/master
from [~njtman]
[;h=69e4d84 ]

CB-9500 Added no sign argument to iOS build

As of Cordova iOS 3.9.0, Xcode signing is automatically added to build
step when compiling for device.  An argument has been added to skip
this step of signing when building for an iOS device.  Simply supply
the —noSign argument when running the compile / build command.

> The recent changes to the compile command (CB-8485) have introduced an issue on iOS.
Specifically, the inline creation of the signed archive, have made it impossible to have an
iOS applications display name be different from the Cordova project name. 
> The archive generation process expects the .app name to have the same basename as the
name listed in the XCodeProject. If it does not find the .app at this position, it fails the
conversion and the entire compile process. 
> The .app it creates is based upon the Cordova project name. The name in the XCodeProject
is the name used for applications name when it is on a device, so now this name must match
the project name or the signed archive won't be created.
> This can be fixed in a number of ways. 
>  - Include a "no-sign" option, which would mimic the old behavior.
>  - Include a way to pass the desired name to compile.
>  - Have the .app name be pulled from some other configuration that isn't tied to a the
iOS display name.
