Did you know that Apple provides a command-line interface for the Application Loader? With a Post-Build IDE build script, you can automatically submit your iOS apps to the iTunesConnect for processing!
The command is:
xcrun altool -u [username] -p [password] -f [path to bundle] -t ios
In a Xojo build script you can even show a prompt asking if you want to submit it. Just make a post-build script and paste in this code.
dim btn As String = ShowDialog("Do you want to upload this build to Apple?", "", "Yes", "No", "") if btn = "No" Then Return end if // Find the path to the .ipa file that was just built Dim result as String = DoShellCommand("cd " + CurrentBuildLocation + " && ls -1 *.ipa") Dim IPAPath As String = CurrentBuildLocation + "/" + ReplaceAll(trim(result), " ", "\ ") // Make the command Dim username as string = "Your iTunesConnect Username" dim password as string = "Your iTunesConnect Password" Dim cmd As String = "xcrun altool -u -p -f -t ios" cmd = Replace(cmd, "", IPAPath) cmd = Replace(cmd, "", username) cmd = Replace(cmd, "", password) // Validate the package (with a 2 minute timeout) // If an error occurs, show the error and abort Dim errorcode As Integer result = DoShellCommand(cmd + " -v", 120, errorcode) If errorcode <> 0 Then print result Return End If // Upload the package (with a 15 minute timeout) // If an error occurs, show the error and abort result = DoShellCommand(cmd + " --upload-app", 900, errorcode) If errorcode <> 0 Then print result Return End If Print "Upload Complete."
