Project Description

 

Apache Cordova is an open source mobile development framework that enables developers to build mobile apps for a variety of platforms using web technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Cordova allows developers to create a single codebase that can be compiled and deployed to multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, Windows, and others. Cordova provides a set of APIs that allow developers to access native device functionality from their web-based code, such as the camera, GPS, and other sensors. It also provides a command-line interface that allows developers to build, test, and deploy their apps to various platforms.
Cordova iOS is the specific implementation of Cordova that is used to build and deploy apps for the iOS platform. It includes the necessary libraries and tools for building Cordova apps for iOS devices, such as the iPhone and iPad. Cordova iOS is developed as an open source project by the Apache Software Foundation and is freely available for anyone to use. It is often used to build cross-platform mobile apps that can be deployed to multiple platforms with a single codebase.

Troubleshooting Apache Cordova iOS with the Lightrun Developer Observability Platform

 

Getting a sense of what’s actually happening inside a live application is a frustrating experience, one that relies mostly on querying and observing whatever logs were written during development.
Lightrun is a Developer Observability Platform, allowing developers to add telemetry to live applications in real-time, on-demand, and right from the IDE.
  • Instantly add logs to, set metrics in, and take snapshots of live applications
  • Insights delivered straight to your IDE or CLI
  • Works where you do: dev, QA, staging, CI/CD, and production

The following issues are the most popular issues regarding this project:

xcodebuild: command failed with exit code 65

 

This error can have a few different causes:

  1. The xcodebuild command might be encountering an error while building the app. In this case, you might need to check the output of the xcodebuild command for more information about the error, and try to fix any issues that are causing the build to fail.
  2. The xcodebuild command might be missing some required dependencies or configuration files. In this case, you might need to check that you have all of the necessary tools and libraries installed and configured correctly.
  3. There might be an issue with the Xcode project itself, such as missing or corrupt files, or conflicting settings. In this case, you might need to review the Xcode project and try to identify and fix any issues that are causing the build to fail.

It’s also possible that there is a problem with the build machine or with the network connection, in which case you might need to try again later or contact your system administrator for assistance.

Macbook M1 : App won’t build on simulator but works fine on device

 

This issue could have a few different causes:

  1. The simulator might be experiencing issues or might not be properly configured. In this case, you might try restarting the simulator or checking that it is running the correct version of iOS. You might also try running the xcodebuild command with the -sdk iphonesimulator flag to explicitly build for the simulator.
  2. There might be an issue with the Cordova project or with the build process. In this case, you might try cleaning the project by running the cordova clean command, or by deleting the platforms and plugins directories and re-adding the platforms and plugins. You might also try running the xcodebuild command with the -verbose flag to get more detailed information about the build process.
  3. There might be an issue with the Macbook M1 or with the development environment. In this case, you might try restarting the Macbook or checking that you have the necessary tools and libraries installed and configured correctly. You might also try building the app on a different machine to see if the issue persists.

It’s also possible that there is a problem with the code or configuration of the Cordova app itself, in which case you might need to review the code and try to identify and fix any issues that could be causing the build to fail.
