grunt-xamarinbuildandsign

Builds and signs your Xamarin.iOS and/or Xamarin.Android apps

Based off of a previous blog post and gist.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.5

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-xamarinbuildandsign --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-XamarinBuildAndSign');

The "XamarinBuildAndSign" task

Overview

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named XamarinBuildAndSign to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  XamarinBuildAndSign: {
    type: "",
    project: "",
    configuration: "",
    keychainPassword: ""
  },
});
