Versionsapp (Subversion) and Static Libraries
Ever since the kind people at versionsapp.com have given me a free license to use their awesome product I have been enjoying it a lot.
Today I imported an existing iPhone project and then checked it out again. To my surprise when I tried to build it I encountered an error. I checked my SVN repository and discovered that a static library ( .a) was not there.
Apparently .a files are treated as hidden files and they don’t get added to the repository. If you want to “fix” this in Versions app then select View -> Show Ignored Items (⌘ + ⇧ + I) and then simply add and commit.
It’s not hard, you just need to know what to look for.
