Compiling a BB7 app with Ripple on Mac OS X

Hi,


Everyone I am trying to compile a webWorks app for BB OS 7 on Mac OS X. I hit 'Package and Sign' and I get an error indicating that .DS_Store is not a valid resource. Apprarently '_' are a NO-GO for webworks. Problem is as soon as I delete them, MAC OS X puts them back.

 

Does anyone know how to get around this? Perhaps we can create a JIRA for this?

Re: Compiling a BB7 app with Ripple on Mac OS X

hey araskin,

 

what version of Ripple are you running? I do webworks for BB10 but the same process should work. I have .DS_Store files also in my folders where I compil -- I just assume ripple was smart enough to ignore those files.  The most current version is 0.9.12. Good luck!

Hi JRab,

I have the latest Ripple. When I compile for BB10 it works great but when I compile for BB6/7 that is when I get these errors.

WARNING: Removals made via Terminal are irreversible. Means they do not go to the trash bin.

 

That being said, try and follow this post made a while ago -- it may be that the mac os is replacing all of your delete .ds_store files as a "feature". If you delete via terminal it shouldn't replace them. Also just double check before hitting enter in case you delete stuff you need. Back up. Apply to all directories that have the .ds_store that you want to package:

Good luck!

Re: Compiling a BB7 app with Ripple on Mac OS X

Are you referring to this?

 

find . -name '*.DS_Store' -type f -delete
