Run test commands in parallel osx containers



Is it possible to run test commands in separate OSX containers, instead of running each command in sequence in one container?

For example:
test: - gym - xcodebuild ... clean build test

If I have one command in my circle.yml file to archive our ios app and one command to run tests, there’s no reason why those commands can’t run at the same time. Do they have to run after each other? Is there a way to tell circle to run each command in a new container? Or not wait for the previous command to finish before starting the new command?


We do not offer parallelism on OSX machines at the moment. You are absolutely right that such a thing should run in parallel but with our current setup we aren’t able to offer this to our customers.
