Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-13948) Apps with ampersand (&) in the name throw build error in cordova-ios@4.3.1
Date Mon, 05 Mar 2018 00:46:00 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on CB-13948:

shazron commented on issue #361: CB-13948 Properly encode app name to generate XML files using
cordova-ios 4.3.1
   Thanks for the PR, but this will not be released by us because we don't do back-releases,
only forward looking releases. In any case, I'm not sure why there are many commits in this
PR, since if you want that change you can cherry pick the commit (
into the branch, and your PR will only contain 1 commit.
   Also, often version support drops means we don't test on that version because of limited
resources; often you can just change DEPLOYMENT_TARGET in the build settings and it should
work. It should be something that can be changed in your config.xml as well.

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: cordova-ios
>    Affects Versions: 4.3.1
>            Reporter: Ronaldo Zanoni
>            Assignee: Suraj Pindoria
>            Priority: Major
> Cordova apps with an ampersand in the name give a build error in cordova-ios 4.3.1:
> "xcodebuild: error: Unable to load workspace 'Tom & Jerry.xcworkspace'.
> Reason: Could not open workspace file at ~/git/Tom & Jerry/platforms/ios/Tom &
> I found that the problem is with the .xcworkspace file. The ampersand doesn't get encoded
in the XML files that are generated.
> PR that created the problem: []
> Reproduce:
> 1. run cordova create HelloCordova
> 2. edit config.xml <name> tag inside to "Tom & Jerry"
> 3. run cordova platform add ios@4.3.1
> 4. run cordova build ios 
> --> ERROR
> *NOTE*: This was fixed in the _cordova-ios 4.4.0_, but that version has removed the _IOS
8_ support and we need that support yet.
> So, the solution is merge the branch _origin/4.3.x_ with this pull request: []
