Some time ago I mentioned the Crafter tool for setting up projects, and the Xctool providing an enhanced Xcodebuild replacement.

Here’s a tool in the form of a Ruby gem from Adam Waite that provides a command line interface for automating your iOS project builds called iOS Build Kit.

iOS build kit allows you to build the app with specific settings, increment the build number, run unit tests, generate an iPA and decorate the icon automatically with the version number. You can set up a configuration file to set up exactly how to build your projects and automate the whole process.

iOS Build Kit is a ruby gem and can be installed with:

gem install ios_build_kit

There are a number of requirements that may not be installed on your system: Xctool, ImageMagick, Ghostscript so be sure to check the readme .

You can find iOS Build Kit on Github here.

A nice tool to simplify building of your iOS projects from the command line.
