MacOS compiles - iOS version support machine
« on: May 03, 2018, 03:22:15 am »
We had some pending topics that converged at the same point: the lack of a platform and dev license for MacOS and iOS compiles.

I sort of made the iOS version (development is practically over) with a rented VM at MacinCloud, but I had almost constant hang-ups and connection cuts. It has been a real pain.

The problem with this VM (apart the mentioned usability ones) is that you can't install any special packages or SDKs out of the "regular" ones. This invalidates the VM for permanent compile platform and also for a long-term maintenance tool for the iOS version.

Also, I could not test the phone's camera and QR scanning on the XCode simulator for obvious reasons.

As a result, I proposed Rob to purchase a second hand Mac to overcome all this limitations and start working on MacOS compiles and better iOS version maintenance.

SCOPE:

- Purchase a 2nd hand Mac with at least i5 proc and 8GB
- Install development license
- Prepare MacOS signed builds.
- Test iOS with real hardware and then launch beta version.

BUDGET

- 2nd hand Mac (770)
- Developer license for 1 year: (99) --> already budgeted in Mobile app proposal = 0
- Prepare and support MacOS builds: voluntary = 0
- Test and launch iOS app: already budgeted, 0

After 1 year, only new Apple developer licenses renewal (99) would be proposed.

770 (BTC @ 7700) = 0,1 BTC (BBP @ 37sat) = 270270 BBP

I had thought to distribute this in a year's amortization, but I would require to create a proposal each month, and actually, after all the expenses I have for my daughter's knee problem, it would be a financial effort I can't assume.

Of course any other use for this Mac that you think we can implement to support Biblepay would be welcomed.

Proposal has been added to gobernance. Kindly consider your masternode vote. If possitive:

Code: [Select]

Thank you!

Where does Rob live? Our work has computer sales and have off-lease business Macs for sale sometimes. I'm in California. Shipping would be expensive for a desktop... I think mac Mini is likely the least expensive way to go, or a mac desktop if you wanted something a little more powerful. macbook pro/air is okay, but they are a premium cost wise.

compiling on freebsd macos is challenge every time.

In my case I'm from Spain. Ironically I got a good deal for a MacAir but it's coming from Los Angeles... It will take a while though.

Thanks for you offer anyway
