Hello everybody, I am facing with a problem concerning the command meteor run ios.
I searched on Stack Overflow, etc but I did not found any help.

I started few days ago to learn Meteor, with Visual Studio Code, so I followed the (Blaze) tutorial for the "simple-todos" app. At the end the app worked properly.

Step "6. Running on mobile", I had to install Xcode (version 9.0, 9A235) via the Mac App Store, no problem. When I typed meteor install-sdk ios it asked me to install others dependencies (like Cocoapods), fine. (I launched XCode, and the Simulator to see if, at least, one device could be started, perfect, I can close it)

Then, when I run meteor run ios it raises many errors (see my PasteBin) like this one in the first lines :

Error: Command failed: /Users/zekka/Dev/meteor/simple-todos/.meteor/local/cordova-build/platforms/ios/cordova/run --emulator
Device type "com.apple.CoreSimulator.SimDeviceType.undefined" could not be found.

Meteor, Visual Studio Code, Xcode, etc were all installed recently, at their last version and without any fancy configuration, so I do not understand why this happens.

  • The version of Meteor showing the problem : Meteor 1.5.2
  • The operating system you're running Meteor on : macOS Sierra 10.12.6
  • The expected behavior : An iOS Simulator running the "simple-todos" app from the Meteor (Blaze) tutorial.

Thank you for your help.

Thanks for reporting this @ZanoT - you're running into issue ios-control/ios-sim#218, which has been fixed (ios-control/ios-sim#219), and should be coming in cordova-ios@4.5.1 (reference ios-control/ios-sim#218 (comment)). After this fix is available, Meteor will need to be updated to use the most recent version of cordova-ios. In the meantime, hopefully someone else more familiar with Cordova will chime in here with a workaround.

Until cordova-ios is updated in Meteor, you can install the latest version of ios-sim manually by running the following in your project directory:

cd .meteor/local/cordova-build/platforms/ios/cordova
meteor npm install ios-sim@latest

Awesome @klaussner - I just noticed your comment about this #9098, so when the upstream patch makes it into cordova-ios (followed by Meteor), we should be able to close both issues off. Thanks!

Thank you @klaussner for the tip, the command meteor run ios works now, a Simulator is correctly launched.
And thank you @hwillson too for the information 👍 .

Running Meteor 1.8.1 and facing the same issue.

Able to fix it using @klaussner's suggestion,

cd .meteor/local/cordova-build/platforms/ios/cordova
meteor npm install ios-sim@latest

PS: Removing ios as platform and adding back or updating meteor as some of the stackoverflow threads suggested did not help.
