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:

ibeacon: iBeacon command line utility

<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

Scan options:
  -i  --interval         Time interval in seconds

Broadcast options:
  -u  --uuid             Proximity UUID
  -M  --major            Major Identifier
  -m  --minor            Minor Identifier
  -p  --power            Advertised Power
</code></pre>

You can find iBeacon CLI on Github here.

A nice tool for working with iBeacons.
