Setting up for remote build error


#1

I’ve made an android app using Android Studio and now am looking at how to create an ios version, and MOE seemed like the best way. What I am aiming to do is to develop on my windows machine and use an imac thats on the same network to remotely build. Thus I am following this guide:

https://doc.multi-os-engine.org/multi-os-engine/3_getting_started/3_remote_build/remote_build.html

I am currently at the run configuration stage, and testing is failing.

My background is not in computer science, so I have been learning everything from scratch as I go, so a lot of this is new to me.

The guidance at this point in the tutorial is a little thin for someone in my position, so I’ve set up the configuration my somewhat guesswork.

Host - the internal ip address of the mac
User - Just the account user name on the mac (which is just mac…)
Knownhosts - I don’t have this file, but the tutorial says it should be automatically generated
Identity - location of private key generated on mac

The resultant stacktrace upon testing is:

gradlew.bat --stacktrace :ios:moeTestRemote

Configure project :ios
Using already downloaded SDK: C:\Users\Russe.moe\moe-sdk-1.4.2

Task :ios:moeTestRemote FAILED
Testing remote server connection:%n
Connecting… (timeout: 30s)%n
%1sError:%2s %3s%n

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

  • What went wrong:
    Execution failed for task ‘:ios:moeTestRemote’.

java.lang.NullPointerException (no error message)

  • Try:
    Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output. Run with --scan to get full insights.

  • Exception is:
    org.gradle.api.tasks.TaskExecutionException: Execution failed for task ‘:ios:moeTestRemote’.

Deprecated Gradle features were used in this build, making it incompatible with Gradle 5.0.
See https://docs.gradle.org/4.6/userguide/command_line_interface.html#sec:command_line_warnings

BUILD FAILED in 1s
1 actionable task: 1 executed

At this point I’m at an impasse, there isn’t much guidance currently available online. Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!


#2

UPDATE: Still not working. Tried to make directly on the mac instead and that has also failed. Perhaps my mac is so old, that I’m having endless compatibility problems. Gonna leave moe for now, and try something else.
