any idea what happened with PlistBuddy ? it seems that after the last 2 updated it is not accessible or available anymore , how do we alter the info.plist from now on xojo ? I used to have a script on build time that will add the needed info but it seems that it does not work anymore , or at least not on XOJO 2019 R 3.2, it used to 2 months ago.
Hi Greg , well in this case it gives nothing , so I assume that it was removed or something . is there a way to find it and put it back ? so far if I change the shell back to bash I can find it via the path /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy but with the new zsh it cannot be found , but still when running that on xojo it fails to write the data on the file .
apparently yes, if I run the command like /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy i get a result in terminal but if I search it with which PlistBuddyi get nothing and in the script I have several lines that are like Call DoShellCommand("/usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c ""add :CFBundleURLTypes array"" " + App + "/Contents/Info.plist" ) but it seems that they never do anything anymore .
I am still really surprised by this though. PlistBuddy is still installed and work in IDEScripts on my Big Sur and my Mojave systems here, so it’s hard for me to think that Apple would have removed access to it just on 10.15.7.
Well I just noticed that as well today when I wanted to build the app and last night I did the last Apple update and surprise , it does not work anymore from XOJO but I can run it properly from the terminal if I put the complete path so weird here as well.
I guess the next step would be to use defaults and a shell but I’ll have to see how I can properly wrap the string to match to my needs.
that is a good point, so far I used print to see if the command was correct and still was ok for me. I ended up using defaults way to write on the plist and now is ok, still no idea what is the issue but as long as it works for me I’m ok with any option.
If I’ll have time to dig more into this and find something useful I’ll post here maybe somebody else will need that as well.
