ICBM: iOS OTA Distribution Webapp

Finding myself in the position of needing to distribute several apps OTA and unable to use the more well known OTA services like testflightapp.com due to client concerns, I made my own, ICBM.

ICBM is a small python webapp built using my favourite webapp framework,  bottle. You just put your application along with icons and the Info.plist (not the binary one) into a directory, and ICBM will generate the required HTML page and manifest plist.

e.g.

  • icbm.py
    • AwesomeApp/
      • AwesomeApp.ipa
      • Icon.png
      • Icon_512.png
      • AwesomeApp-Info.plist


More detail over at its github page: https://github.com/freespace/icbm.

Cheers,
Steve
