Xcode Archiving script - Andrea Bizzotto bizz84@gmail.com

Script to archive an existing xcode project to a target location. The script checks for a post-build action that defines the $ARCHIVE_PATH as follows: echo "ARCHIVE_PATH=\"$ARCHIVE_PATH\"" > $PROJECT_DIR/archive_paths.sh

If such post-build action does not exist or running it doesn't define the $ARCHIVE_PATH variable, the script tries to generate it programmatically by finding the latest build in the expected archiving folder that matches the specified target name and date.

Rationale

For projects with a multitude of targets, generating the ARCHIVE_PATH programmatically can be a more maintainable solution, compared to exporting the scheme for each target and adding a post-action build script.

Source Code

The repository comes with a test Xcode iOS project that can be used to test the archive script.
