Simplifies launching Titanium apps to the simulator/emulator by allowing the use of aliases rather than UDIDs / emulator names.
ti build -p ios -C 779CA28E-FE7D-4B2F-AF49-48CBCBC7B8D5
ti build -p ios -C ipad2
ti build -p <platform> -C <alias>
You can even ommit the platform and SimpleSim will try to detect it based on the emulator/simulator
ti build -C <alias>
Install from NPM or clone the repo and install from your local directory.
preferred [sudo] npm install -g simplesim or non-globally npm install simplesim generate the aliases and install the CLI plug-in if installed globally simplesim generate if installed non-globally node <install_dir>/index.js generate
The list of device aliases is saved to the ~/.titanium/simplesim.json file. You're welcome to edit that file to create custom or more mnemonic aliases. But keep in mind that you will need to update the aliases list every time you update Xcode or add/remove an Android AVD which will overwrite any customizations you make.
// get help output simplesim simplesim -h simplesim --help // generate the list of aliases and install the CLI plug-in simplesim generate simplesim -g simplesim --generate-aliases // alternatively, omit the geny_ or avd_ prefixes simplesim generate --no-prefix simplesim -g --no-prefix simplesim --generate-aliases --no-prefix // list the aliases without rebuilding simplesim list simplesim --list simplesim -l // get version info simplesim --version simplesim -v
To uninstall SimpleSim:
First, remove the CLI hook and config file simplesim uninstall Second, remove SimpleSim itself sudo npm r -g simplesim
npm ras shown above.
SimpleSim has two parts: a script to build a list of aliases for UDIDs / AVD names, and a CLI plug-in. The alias-building script uses the
ti info command to retrieve the details from your Titanium configuration. It parses the results and writes them to a JSON file in the .titanium folder in your home directory.
The CLI plug-in hooks into the CLI at the
cli:go step, which is before the CLI arguments are parsed. It looks for the required
--device-id) argument. If found, it looks up the argument's value in the JSON file. If there's a match, that's substituted for the original value of the argument and the build proceeds. If there's not a match (like if you entered an actual UDID), SimpleSim gives up and the build procees.
So far, tested on OS X only, with working Xcode and Android configurations. Needs to be tested on Windows and with incomplete configurations (e.g. OS X w/out Android set up).
