How to compile Xamarin iOS App for Appium?


I would like to use Appium framework for our Mobile automation.

-Platform : iOS
-Appium version: Appium v1.4.1

  • Emulator/Simulator - iPad 8.2 simulator
  • Client langauage (language binding) - Ruby
  • OS - OS X(10.9.5)

Currently i couldn’t compile the app in terminal

Our App has been built on Xamarin and it is in .sln format.

When I try to compile app using ‘Xcodebuild -sdk iphonesimulator8.2’ . I am getting the following error.

xcodebuild[12154:1007] [MT] iPhoneSimulator: SimVerifier returned: Error Domain=NSPOSIXErrorDomain Code=53 “Simulator verification failed.” UserInfo=0x7fbfe342e060 {NSLocalizedFailureReason=A connection to the simulator verification service could not be established., NSLocalizedRecoverySuggestion=Ensure that is installed on a volume with ownership enabled., NSLocalizedDescription=Simulator verification failed.}
Build settings from command line:
SDKROOT = iphonesimulator8.2

xcodebuild: error: The directory ****/*****/cucumber-appium/Mobile/RTListings does not contain an Xcode project.

please let me know the command to compile xamarin build also let me know how well appium supports xamarin app.

Thank you.

Xamarin apps are regular apps, just compile debug version so that they can be run in the simulator.
