Forge CLI workaround for tunnel stuck on bundling step

We are aware that Forge developers started facing issues with their forge tunnel command, which appeared to get stuck on the “Bundling Code” step.

After further investigation, it is only impacting a subset of CLI tunnel commands:

  • you are working with the Sandbox Runtime
  • you are using a Mac computer with a Apple Silicon chip (ie, M1)
  • you have updated your Docker Desktop app recently

In this case, your forge tunnel will get stuck while attempting to bundle your Forge app.

To get around this issue, you can disable the “Rosetta” Setting in your Docker Desktop.

Your CLI should then properly bundle during tunnelling once you restart your Docker daemon.

Note We have also updated our Forge tunneling documentation to highlight this issue & workaround.
