About Glitter

Glitter is an easy way to publish Mac software updates to an Amazon S3 bucket using the Sparkle framework (http://sparkle.andymatuschak.org/). It was created at Poll Everywhere to eliminate the need maintaining additional server infrastructure for rolling out Mac desktop software updates.

It should also be noted that Glitter uses HTTPS S3 URLs to eliminate the need for the maintiance of public/private keys for Sparkle, which further simplifies the publishing process.

Getting started

  1. Install the gem

    gem install glitter
    
  2. Generate a Glitterfile in your project directory

    glitter init .
    
  3. Edit the Glitterfile

    # After you configure this file, deploy your app with `glitter push`
    
    name          "My App"
    version       "1.0.0"
    archive       "my_app.zip"
    release_notes "http://myapp.com/release_notes/"
    
    s3 {
      bucket            "my_app"
      access_key        "access"
      secret_access_key "sekret"
    }
    
  4. Publish your app to the web

    glitter push
    

That's it!
