Command Line Automation for iTunes Connect

You can now use Transporter, Apple’s command-line delivery tool, to deliver App Store metadata localizations, in addition to In-App Purchase and Game Center metadata. This includes screenshots, rights and pricing, and In-App Purchase hosted content assets. Using Transporter allows you to integrate with your own content management system and deliver your app metadata in bulk. This process is especially useful for adding and managing localizations, which help maximize your global App Store exposure.

You can also use Transporter to look up and retrieve your existing app's metadata, in order to see an example of correctly formatted XML.

To learn more about App Store packages, including how to create them, see the updated App Metadata Specification document available for download from the Manage Your Apps module on iTunes Connect.

For more information about downloading and installing Transporter, see the Transporter User Guide, also available for download from the Manage Your Apps module on iTunes Connect.

Pattern: Riblets vs. VIPER

Engineering the architecture behind Uber's new rider app

Not being held back by our extensive codebase and previous design choices gave us the freedom where we otherwise would have made compromises. The outcome is the sleek new app you see today, which implements a new mobile architecture across both iOS and Android. Read on to learn why we felt the need to create this new architecture pattern, called Riblets, and how it helps us reach our goals.

The platforms share:

Core architectureClass namesInheritance relationships between business logic unitsHow business logic is dividedPlugin points (names, existence, structure, etc.)Reactive programming chainsUnified platform components
Each Riblet is made up of one Router, Interactor, and Builder with its Component (hence the name), and optional Presenters and Views. The Router and Interactor handle the business logic, while the Presenter and View handle the view logic.

WireMock is a flexible library for stubbing and mocking web services. Unlike general purpose mocking tools it works by creating an actual HTTP server that your code under test can connect to as it would a real web service.

It supports HTTP response stubbing, request verification, proxy/intercept, record/playback of stubs and fault injection, and can be used from within a unit test or deployed into a test environment.

Although it’s written in Java, there’s also a JSON API so you can use it with pretty much any language out there.
