Build iOS app for simulator and deploy to Appetize.io


#1

Build iOS app for simulator via xcodebuild and deploy it to Appetize.io for demos, customer support, testing etc.

Steps

Scipt step - To create the iOS .app for simulator:

  • Script content if you have a workspace:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
set -e
set -x

xcodebuild "-workspace" "$BITRISE_SOURCE_DIR/$BITRISE_PROJECT_PATH" "-scheme" "$BITRISE_SCHEME" "-configuration" "$CONFIGURATION" "CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY=" "build" "-destination" "$SIMULATOR_IDENTITY" "PROVISIONING_PROFILE_SPECIFIER=" -derivedDataPath $BITRISE_SOURCE_DIR/ddata  

  • Script content if you have just a project:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
set -e
set -x

xcodebuild "-project" "$BITRISE_SOURCE_DIR/$BITRISE_PROJECT_PATH" "-scheme" "$BITRISE_SCHEME" "-configuration" "$CONFIGURATION" "CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY=" "build" "-destination" "$SIMULATOR_IDENTITY" "PROVISIONING_PROFILE_SPECIFIER=" -derivedDataPath $BITRISE_SOURCE_DIR/ddata  

Create ZIP step - To export the builded .app to the deploy dir:

  • Source directory path:
    $BITRISE_SOURCE_DIR/ddata/Build/Products/Debug-iphonesimulator/$BITRISE_SCHEME.app

  • Target directory path:
    $BITRISE_DEPLOY_DIR/$BITRISE_SCHEME.zip

Deploy to Bitrise.io - Apps, Logs, Artifacts

  • Just put this step there so you will have the .apps under the APPS & ARTIFACTS tab.

Appetize.io deploy

  • Application path:
    $BITRISE_DEPLOY_DIR/$BITRISE_SCHEME.zip

Create secrets:

Create envs:

  • SIMULATOR_IDENTITY: platform=iOS Simulator,name=iPhone 6,OS=11.3
    NOTE: This is only an example

  • CONFIGURATION: Debug
    NOTE: This is only an example


Bitrise.yml:

It should look like this:

The given process can be very useful for those who are going to make the ios app through this and this will really help them. I have also made the app for the ios platform by this process with the help of Apple iPad support.
