Creating ipa for ad hoc distribution

Post by bertBUSIbr8 » Thu May 09, 2013 12:11 pm

Hi,


New to the forums and LiveCode, and after the trial version of the commercial edition, have now started properly with the Community version.

What I'm trying at the moment is re-building a few projects I have made for clients before as CD-ROM [with Director], so I can show them what can be done and once I get the ball rolling switch to the commercial version.
At the moment I've got an app working great on the iPad, but have to get that onto my clients iPad in an easy way for testing. I have set up provisioning profiles, their iPad is in the list of devices, so I'm all good there.

My main question is, how do you go from the .app file LiveCode generates to an .ipa file I can use with Testflight for example so I have an easy way of getting ot to my client?


Many thanks,



Bert

Hi Bert,
Welcome to the forum!

I use this:

Just need to zip up the app and include your profile.

Hi Bert,

Simon's solution is a good alternative.
And there's a native LiveCode solution, too,
Jacqueline's AirLaunch: http://www.hyperactivesw.com/airlaunch/index.html

But if you want to use testflight, then here is the recipe:
* Open iTunes
* Navigate to apps in iTunes
* Drag-drop your .app file into iTunes
* Right-click on your app in iTunes
* Click Show in Finder
Voila, there's your .ipa file ready to upload to testflight 8)

Best,

Hi All,
Im also a newbie. I've just created my first noob app and would like to try it on my iphone running ios 11.3.1.
My mac is running on mac os x 10.12.6 & XCode 9.2, Live Code 9 Community Edition.

I'm just trying to figure out what what profile I need to add to my app.

Paul
