Compiling iOS Project in GitHub Actions
While setting up
YAML with GitHub Actions, it seems the build failed.
These are the steps I took to integrate GitHub Actions in our iOS project. It seems for CI/CD to work we have to create a
Package.swift file in our project. Currently, we do it manually through Xcode’s Swift Package Manager.
To create this
Package.swift file, we need to run
swift package init in the command line and it will create the following files.
swift package init Creating library package: iOS Creating Package.swift Creating .gitignore Creating Sources/ Creating Sources/iOS/iOS.swift Creating Tests/ Creating Tests/iOSTests/ Creating Tests/iOSTests/iOSTests.swift
After, I opened
Package.swift file and added the libraries inside the
dependencies: [ // Dependencies declare other packages that this package depends on. // .package(url: /* package url */, from: "1.0.0"), .package(url: "https://github.com/scinfu/SwiftSoup", branch: "master"), .package(url: "https://github.com/onevcat/Kingfisher", branch: "master"), .package(url: "https://github.com/realm/realm-cocoa", branch: "master"), .package(url: "https://github.com/optonaut/ActiveLabel.swift", branch: "master"), .package(url: "https://github.com/mixpanel/mixpanel-swift", branch: "master"), .package(url: "https://github.com/BastiaanJansen/toast-swift", branch: "main") ],
After saving, run
swift package resolve in the command line. Swift will then fetch the libraries and compile them. Swift will also create a file called
Also, as of September 15 using
macos-latest as the runner in GitHub Actions won’t work. So I have to use
macos-12 instead. I got this answer from here.
Push to git repo.
xcodebuild is now working and seems to be fetching the libraries now but threw another error about my “provisioning profiles not found”. I don’t need those profiles setup for now, I just want GA to compile our iOS project successfully.
So, I updated the run command in our
- name: Build run: xcodebuild clean build CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY="" CODE_SIGNING_REQUIRED=NO -scheme OnlineJobsPH working-directory: ./iOS
Build successful. Yay!
