Why….you need to install Remote Agent on a Mac in order to build/deploy Visual Studio Apps that are targeted to the IOS environment.
The first command updates npm, the second command installs the remote agent, and the third command is only required if you will be using the iOS Simulator from Visual Studio.
Reference https://msdn.microsoft.com/library/dn757054.aspx#ios * To start the remote agent, from the Terminal app on your Mac type: remotebuild
I ran remote build, it asked me about installing Homebrew – I said continue, then I got a notification that Homebrew is already installed, I re-ran this time saying I didn’t want to continue with the install for Homebrew
For some reason, I did not get a security PIN for my Visual Studio configuration. At this point, I ran the remotebuild –secure false (this will disable secure mode and enable http-based connections, choosing False as the Secure mode.
Stopping the agent on the mac, Ctrl+C * Running my first IOS Cordova application (from Visual Studio 2015)
While this worked, I wanted to revisit the issue about my missing Security PIN
To generate a new security PIN, type remote build generateClientCert * Doing this I was able to get my Security PIN, enter it within Visual Studio and all things
