Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-11794) Hook after_build not working on iOS
Date Tue, 28 Feb 2017 03:05:45 GMT


Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-11794:

hooks are run by the cli, and not the platform. Added it to Components

> -----------------------------------
>                 Key: CB-11794
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: CordovaLib, iOS
>         Environment: OS X 10.11.6
> Tools:
> node: v6.4.0
> npm: 3.10.6
> cordova: 6.3.1
> ionic: 2.0.0
> grunt: grunt-cli v1.2.0
> grunt v1.0.1
> bower: 1.7.9
> Installed platforms:
>   ios 4.2.1
> My app is written using ionic 1 and angularjs 1
>            Reporter: Radu Moian-Dusa
> I discovered the bug, by following this scenario:
> clean ionic project;
> open terminal at project root;
> 1. rm -rf plugins/ (remove the plugins folder)
> 2. cordova add platform ios
> 3. cordova build ios
> 4. ls -l platforms/ios/<PROJECT_NAME>/Images.xcassets/AppIcon.appiconset/ and ls
-l platforms/ios/<PROJECT_NAME>/Images.xcassets/LaunchImage.launchimage/
> 5. in both folders found above, we find the Contents.json file that tells xcode which
icon/splash screen goes to wich resolution
> 6. cordova platform rm ios
> 7. cordova platform add ios (add the platform again, but the plugins are installed from
plugins/ folder found in the root of the project)
> 8. cordova build ios
> 9. ls -l platforms/ios/<PROJECT_NAME>/Images.xcassets/AppIcon.appiconset/ and ls
-l platforms/ios/<PROJECT_NAME>/Images.xcassets/LaunchImage.launchimage/
> 10. in both folders found above is missing the Contents.json file, so, after we open
<PROJECT_NAME>.xcodeproj file in xcode, all the icons and launch screens are unassigned,
so the app starts on the iOS device at a wrong resolution. (example: run app on iPhone 5C
and the app starts at iPhone 4 resolution with black bars on top and bottom).
> I think this might be a cordova Bug but I am not sure.
> As a workaround, I copied the Contents.json files to another location in my project and:

> 1. added an after_build hook to copy these file into platforms/ios/<PROJECT_NAME>/Images.xcassets/AppIcon.appiconset/
and platforms/ios/<PROJECT_NAME>/Images.xcassets/LaunchImage.launchimage/ paths.
> 2. cordova platform rm ios
> 3. cordova platform add ios
> 4. cordova build ios
> 5. this should be the place where the after_build hook should run.
> If you run cordova build ios again the hook works.
> I have noticed that the first time you run cordova build ios the message "** BUILD SUCCEEDED
**" does not appear, sometimes only after the third time of running cordova build ios this
message appears. From what I can tell only when the message ** BUILD SUCCEEDED ** appears
the after_build hook is run. 
> This issue can be reproduced with the after_compile hook as well.
> What I have done in order to achieve this "workaround" is: I have made a before_compile
hook which copies the Contents.json file where it should be copied and it works.
> I hope that I described the problem well. If there are any questions you can ask me later
