CLI for Building & Distributing iOS Apps (.ipa Files)
.ipa files and then distribute them with TestFlight, all from the command line!
Less cumbersome than clicking around in Xcode, and less hassle than rolling your own build script--Shenzhen radically improves the process of getting new builds out to testers and enterprises.
This project is starting with TestFlight, but will move to support other popular distribution methods, such as S3, CloudApp, and / or Dropbox. Suggestions (and pull requests) are very welcome.
shenzhenis named for 深圳, the Chinese city famous for its role as the center of manufacturing for a majority of consumer electronics, including iPhones and iPads. Its sister project's namesake, Cupertino, CA, is home to Apple, Inc.'s world headquarters.
