iOS build taking too much time

Bitrise Build Issue Report template

Description of the issue

Please describe the issue here

I’m trying to build an iOS react-native app, everything is setup fine, it’s working for android, but the iOS build is taking too much time and the build is automaticly aborded because i’m on the free plan.
I’ve done everything to opimize the build time : Setting up the bitrise cache, uploaded the Pods folder, so it doesn’t have to install it, I have disabled the bitcode recompile, but nothing of this helps, the Xcode Archive step is taking too much time.

What else can I do please ?


Where did the issue happen?

If on which stack? If not on on what operating system? (Plus any other information you can share)

On Bitrise : Xcode 11.1.x, on macOS 10.14.6 (Mojave)

Hi there!

Can you include an URL or a logfile so we can take a look at these builds? Also consider the difference in environments, so if your build locally takes 10-20 minutes or more, that might be difficult to fit into the free tier limit on Bitrise.
