Great to hear, thank you for the docs. I hope to make time this weekend to get this working!
Happy to help test out Windows support. I'd really like to have builds run on Windows 10 and MacOS VM's at the same time
Haven't had chance to look extensively at the documentation just yet, so one quick question whilst I'm here - is there any bare minimum appveyor.yml showing how the cloud is set to a Parallels image? Will help me hit the ground running
Sorry for not getting back to you, only just managed to set the time to get this working with Parallels.
Followed the instructions without issue for configuring a (MacOS) Parallels image. However, am a little unsure how to proceed with the documentation as its a little unclear in places following the installation of Packer and moving it to /usr/local/bin/ for it to be recognised via PATH.
I've hit an issue at point 2 in the docs, hope I'm not being stupid!
On host machine:
Download Packer unpack it and copy packer executable to /usr/local/bin (or any other directory in your PATH variable): cp packer /usr/local/bin/packer.
Clone build-images repository: git clone https://github.com/appveyor/build-images.git, change directory to it and checkout parallels branch: git checkout parallels
Unregister VM prepared earlier: prlctl unregister <VMNAME>
Locate VM’s folder, usually it’s $HOME/Parallels/<VMNAME>.pvm.
- Where am I cloning the https://github.com/appveyor/build-images.git repository to?
- What is meant by "change directory to it"?
- There is no parallels branch in this repository to checkout.
Those instructions are to be executed in terminal window. In phrase "change directory to it" we skipped word "current": "change current directory to it".
Packer comes in one standalone executable and it can be placed anywhere you like on a host machine. It does not matter for the next steps in the documentation until it can be found in PATH and executed on step 6.
parallels branch has been merged into master branch and the doc was not updated.
You can clone build-images repository wherever you like. Usually, I clone it to Home directory. git clone creates a subfolder named after repository e.g. build-images. Change current directory to that subfolder since the rest of the instructions should be done from there.
I have updated the doc to make it more clear and up to date.
