Command Line Tool For Automatically Generating .Pem Files For iOS Push Notifications

Last week I mentioned a some nice tools from Felix Krause for automatically creating and framing app screenshots and submitting app updates.

Here’s another nice tool called PEM submitted by Felix Krause allowing you to automatically generate .pem files for push notifications.

Creating .pem files for push notifications is normally a time-consuming process as it requires you to use the iOS dev center interface and the keychain app. PEM automatically downloads the latest apps_production.cer from the iOS dev center, creates a new keychain for the necessary profiles, and then generates the PEM in seconds ready to be sent to your server.

This animation from the readme shows how quick the process is with PEM:


You can find PEM on Github here.

A very nice time-saving tool.
