[ANN] IPA Build Tool for iOS

Tom Glod via use-livecode
Hi LC Community,

I needed to create IPAs of my iOS software so that I could upload them to
my website for Enterprise distribution but all the old tools for doing this
have been deprecated by Apple. So I've created this simple one to meet
Apple's new standard way to produce them. Simply extract it into your
LiveCode plugins folder and you will be able to open it from the LC menu,
Development>Plugins>IPA_Builder. Let me know if you have any problems with
it.

Re: [ANN] IPA Build Tool for iOS

Tom Glod via use-livecode
Hi Sean,

thanks. I´ve just tried it, but is it possible that the plugin does forget to rename the zip file to ipa?

At least here, the created file is a zip file instead of an ipa.

Sean:
Thanks for the app. It should come in useful.
I assume that the provisioning file created in the Apple Developer site (for beta testers) must contain the ID info of every device that it must run on, if it is not distributed through the app store?? I am writing several apps that will need significant beta testing, so I will be distributing them directly.

Tom Glod via use-livecode
Correct, all testers UUIDs must be added to the provisioning profile. There
a limit of 100/year. You can only delete old ones after your yearly
developer renewal.

Hi Matthias,

I've made the change for filenames that include special characters. I've
also made changes to footprint as it was apparently too large on some
smaller screens.

Hi William,

As Ralph says, correct. I have an Enterprise account which was a really
difficult thing to get set up with Apple (took about 2 months). While it
costs $299/year, for me it's well worth it as I have published for several
hundred machines at once for some corporate events. MDM delivery over my
secure website is also a massive bonus for the TV Gameshow demo apps I put
together for my Broadcast clients. If it was only for beta testing I would
stay with the standard dev license.

Re: [ANN] IPA Build Tool for iOS

Tom Glod via use-livecode
Sean:
I am curious if it is a reasonable idea to edit the provisioning profile directly using BBEdit to add UDID’s for beta testing, without going to the Apple Developer site to add beta testers. I see a lot of “?”  characters when I open the provisioning profile in BBEdit, so I wonder if it is safe to edit it using BBEdit. Or perhaps create a livecode app to add new UDID’s to a provisioning profile.

What do you think?

Thanks,
Best,
Bill P

Re: [ANN] IPA Build Tool for iOS

Tom Glod via use-livecode
It won't work as it will be an encrypted binary with a checksum of some
kind (right at the end of the xml stuff.

It's really easy to create the PPs, though, so I'm not sure what the
benefit would be in trying to edit it. Just go to your dev account, add in
the IDs and remake the profile. The old ones will still work on the other
machines that have been installed with them. The reason you have to do it
that way is so that Apple can keep a lid on a number of devices you are
providing for. If you need more than a hundred, set up another standard
account or upgrade to an Enterprise license.

The other sucky thing about the 100 is that it is per year. You can't just
take off ones you're not using and replace. You have to wait till your year
is up before you can swap them out. :(
