Re: Multiple versions of an app

Alex Zavatone

A better explanation is that the info.plist uses that build setting, that environment variable as the name of the executable.  

There’s a little relationship between $(TARGET_NAME), $(PRODUCT_NAME) and $(EXECUTABLE_NAME).  These are defined in your target’s build settings and used in various places, such as our friendly info.plist.

These are good resources to help you make sense of them. Expect a few to be missing.

Make sure to save this as a PDF for future reference.

Looking forward ti hearing about the end result of this product you’re creating.

Yes - $(TARGET_NAME) is the correct identifier! 

Setting this also changes the executable name under ../MacOS and CFBundleName and CFBundleExecutable in the Info.plist.

That’s in your Build Settings

in project settings:



$ xcodebuild BUNDLE_ID_SEQ=1

Could this way also be used to name the app itself? 

to generate,, etc...
