I’ve mentioned a number of tutorials for working with iBeacons most recently a step by step guide to creating a proximity based treasure hunting app.
Here’s a tool making it easier to work with iBeacons providing a command-line interface for easy broadcasting and detection called iBeacon-CLI from Radius Networks.
iBeacon-CLI allows you to easily configure iBeacons with a large amount of configuration options as shown in this help dump from the readme:
<pre><code> -h --help Display this message
-v --version Display 'Version 1.0.1'
-s --scan Scan for iBeacons
-b --broadcast Broadcast as an iBeacon
-i --interval Time interval in seconds
-u --uuid Proximity UUID
-M --major Major Identifier
-m --minor Minor Identifier
-p --power Advertised Power
You can find iBeacon CLI on Github here.
A nice tool for working with iBeacons.
