I’m trying to start a separate process/app in the host machine that will server my UITests. The instructions for these processes or apps require me to start them before my UITests starts. So, I added the script in the pre-action hook in the corresponding Scheme. it works on my machine both through Xcode and through a fresh install with Bitrise CLI.
It seems that through my build errors, the process or app is not running. I’ve searched through some discussions and it seems that it is indeed possible. I’m just wondering if there’s any kind of special setup for me to do to make it work?
One such suggestions is by using
screen -dm the_command but I’m not sure where I should execute this command.
- Can you advise on how to go about running the separate process/app?
- Is there any documentation on what
screen -dm the_commanddoes?
