iOS example simple build fails

Hi there,

I just downloaded OpenFrameworks for iOS ( and tried one of these examples without changing anything, however got build failed.

/clang:-1: no such file or directory: '/Users/kwie/Desktop/of_v0.10.1_ios_release/libs/openFrameworksCompiled/lib/ios/libofxiOS_iphoneos_Debug.a'
  • ofx 0.10.1 (ios)
  • xcode 10.1
  • iOS Deployment Target: iOS 12.1

How can I fix it?

I should solve this naive issue myself, but the official guide is outdated and couldn’t find similar error on google.


ofx bug

Base approach

Simple solution
On xcode10

Go to File > Project Settings…
set Build System to Legacy Build System

I can confirm that changing to Legacy Build System works. Thanks.
