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.
