#15405 closed defect (fixed)

xcode.project variable handles strings as lists

Reported by: rhwood@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc: jmroot (Joshua Root)


The xcode.project portfile variable treats strings as lists.

The variable takes a single project file as an argument to be passed to xcode, but if a space is in the name, it passes the name wrapped in curly braces.

Expected result: setting xcode.project "Chat Core.xcodeproj" does not lead to an error

Returned result:

-->  Building ChatCore
Error: Target returned: shell command "cd "/opt/local/var/macports/build/_Users_Shared_Developer_MacPorts_Repository_trunk_dports_irc_ChatCore/work/trunk" && xcodebuild -project {Chat Core.xcodeproj} -target "ChatCore (Application)" -configuration Release build OBJROOT=build/ SYMROOT=build/ " returned error 1
Command output: xcodebuild: Error: the project name {Chat does not have a valid extension.

Note that {Chat Core.xcodeproj} is passed instead of Chat Core.xcodeproj

This issue is covered in #12429 which I did not reopen due to its commentary.

I found at least one portfile (source:trunk/dports/aqua/IcyJuice/Portfile) that has workarounds in it to address this behavior.
