[ALOY-810] When moving app outside Studio workspace, alloy compile fails
Steps to reproduce1) create an app in Appcelerator Studio 2) move the app's directory into a different path (~/Downloads/) 3) open the new path in console 4) alloy compile --config platform=ios
Actual resultCompilation fails with this error: ~~~ [ERROR] Alloy "app" directory does not exist at "/Users/dcassenti/Downloads/app" ~~~ Running the same command when the app is in the workspace works; same happens if - instead of creating a new app - I do: 1) download someone's app in ~/Downloads/ 2) open the app's main directory 3) alloy compile --config platform=ios
- Davide Cassenti 2013-08-29 I checked the alloy source, actually the problem is different. It fails if you have a tiapp.xml in the parent folder (in my case, I had one ~/Downloads/tiapp.xml). Not sure if this might be considered an issue or not.
- Tony Lukasavage 2014-01-20 Alloy's just doing its best to find what you are trying to compile. It sees a tiapp.xml and an app folder, so it thinks it found it. I think it's fair to expect developers to call the compile form the appropriate folder.
