Our project requires a private repo that requires Carthage to be bootstrapped. The main repo has a workspace that includes the main project file and the dependent project file. This is essentially what we’re trying to achieve:
- Clone the private repo with a github user key, checking out the same branch name as the main repo.
- Bootstrap Carthage for the dependent repo.
- Build the main repo.
Bootstrapping Carthage in the dependent repo can take upwards of 30 minutes, so ideally this needs to be cached (we’re using the technique described here: https://robots.thoughtbot.com/caching-carthage-con-circleci).
This is what our
circle.yml file looks like:
machine: environment: LC_CTYPE: en_US.UTF-8 XCODE_WORKSPACE: MyApp.xcworkspace xcode: version: "8.3.2" checkout: post: - git clone -b $CIRCLE_BRANCH email@example.com:Foo/dependent-repo.git - mv dependent-repo ../dependent-repo dependencies: override: - cd ../dependent-repo/Swift && bin/bootstrap-if-needed cache_directories: - "../dependent-repo/Swift/Carthage" test: override: - set -o pipefail && xcodebuild CODE_SIGNING_REQUIRED=NO CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY= PROVISIONING_PROFILE= -destination 'platform=iOS Simulator,OS=latest,name=iPhone 7' -workspace 'MyApp.xcworkspace' -scheme "MyApp Stage" clean build test | tee $CIRCLE_ARTIFACTS/xcode_raw.log | xcpretty --color --report junit --output $CIRCLE_TEST_REPORTS/xcode/results.xml
The build always fails during the
cd ../dependent-repo/Swift && bin/bootstrap-if-needed step. It appears like
../dependent-repo/Swift exists, but is always empty.
I’ve even tried something like this, just to debug:
git clone -b $CIRCLE_BRANCH firstname.lastname@example.org:Foo/dependent-repo.git && mv dependent-repo ../dependent-repo && ls -l ../dependent-repo/Swift
It’s still empty, even though the repo was clearly just cloned. What’s going on? How do I fix this? And if we’re going about this the wrong way, what is the solution?
