Open Source Tool For Automatically Downloading And Updating Your Provisioning Profiles

Earlier this month I mentioned some nice tools from Felix Krause for automatically taking and framing screenshots, generating pem files for your push notification server, and updating app data and ipa files on iTunes connect.

Here’s a nice command line tool submitted by Krause for working with providing profiles allowing you to avoid going through the menus in Xcode in case you need to download or repair a provisioning profile called Sigh.

The features of Sigh as listed in the readme include:

Download the latest provisioning profile for your app
Renew a provisioning profile, when it has expired
Repair a provisioning profile, when it is broken
Create a new provisioning profile, if it doesn’t exist already
Supports App Store, Ad Hoc and Development profiles
Support for multiple Apple accounts, storing your credentials securely in the Keychain

You can easily integrate Sigh with your continous integration server and it is very helpful in case your existing profile suddenly becomes invalid.

You can install with: sudo gem install sigh

You can find Sigh on Github here with full usage instructions.

A nice time-saving tool.
