Continuous Integration with Indie edition

pshomovpshomov ISMember


It is not possible to build iOS (and Android I believe) projects from the command line using Xamarin's Indie edition. I am confused by this and would like to hear what was the thinking behind it. It stops me from setting up continuous integration for my projects and I don't like it. Also, I would like to advocate that all editions should be able to build from the command line ;)

What do you think guys?

Best regards,

    Petar Shomov,

    I fully agree! I would like to use Jenkins also for building my projects, but it is not allowed when using the Indie version.
    You have my vote Petar!

    It was also not mentioned (at Pricing section for example) anywhere that building outside Xamarin Studio is not allowed when using the Indie version.

    Hi Bas,

    Glad you care about this ;)

    The command-line build issue is a sub-item on the "Business Features" item on the price list. Xamarin are a cool company which is associated with Linux, Unix and Open source. I understand they have to make money and we all support them with our wallets but this command-line situation is out of character for Xamarin I feel.
