I do a lot of development within Docker containers- specifically using VSCode Remote Containers, to keep a consistent development environment across machines. When building an iOS native app, obviously the final build must be done within XCode, however, I was hopeful that everything up until that point could be done within a container with a mounted volume. While building/serving up my ionic code works perfectly fine within the container, I am running into an issue when I try to run
capacitor sync ios from within the container. Specifically, I get the following:
x Updating iOS native dependencies with pod install - failed! x update ios - failed! [error] ERR_SUBPROCESS_COMMAND_NOT_FOUND
so it appears that pod is not being found by the capacitor CLI process. However, if I manually execute (again from within the container):
cd ios/App; pod install
cocoapods properly runs, and I see
Pod installation complete! There are 6 dependencies from the Podfile and 6 total pods installed.
Any thoughts on what may be going on here? Am I correct in assuming that the capacitor cli tool cannot find the pod binary for some reason?
