JSE Github Notes

Notes for the builds. Very Technical. Here be dragons…

The “platform” Repo can build all the items at once. Desktop, Android and iOS devices. Windows, OSX, iOS, Android and so on.

The builds are done for ‘all’ or individually like “npm run mobile:ios”

Note that iOS still breaks, because something has changed the repo base and in so doing has changed the build name from JSECoin.app to HelloCordova.app – and so the emulator can’t find it.

“The request to open “com.jsecoin.alpha” failed.”


An error was encountered processing the command (domain=FBSOpenApplicationServiceErrorDomain, code=1):
The request to open "com.jsecoin.alpha" failed.
The request was denied by service delegate (SBMainWorkspace) for reason: NotFound ("Application "com.jsecoin.alpha" is unknown to FrontBoard").
Underlying error (domain=FBSOpenApplicationErrorDomain, code=4):
	The operation couldn’t be completed. Application "com.jsecoin.alpha" is unknown to FrontBoard.
	Application "com.jsecoin.alpha" is unknown to FrontBoard.
com.jsecoin.alpha: -1

Ensure that you have the latest npm, and Cordova installed, as well as the full install of Android Studio. Make sure it’s completely installed.
This bit takes a lot of getting right. I was starting blind never having used npm or Cordova before at all, nor Android Studio.

You must install the Cordova plugins from within the build directory for the platform you want to use. If you try to add platforms, and it tells you its a nono-Cordova project directory, then you aren’t in the right directory.

JSECoin/platform/build/mobile/platforms is where the config.xml file is on my system.

Now, things I’ve changed or twiddled with so far. Note that everything builds even the iOS. It’s just the iOS won’t run.

In platform/package.json I changed to this line

For Android (i’m on a Mac remember)
"mobile:android": "npm run mobile:www && cd build/mobile && cordova emulate android",

For iOS

"mobile:ios": "npm run mobile:www && cd build/mobile && cordova emulate ios --buildFlag='-UseModernBuildSystem=0' --target 'iPhone-XS-Max, 12.0'",

from this line
"mobile:ios": "npm run mobile:www && cd build/mobile && cordova run ios",

The error of the missing Info.plist file.

I was able to fix this by following the directions so.: from this post: https://github.com/ionic-team/ionic-cli/issues/2487


> cordova run ios --list --target --emulator
