Python wrapper around the simctl utility
This is a Python wrapper around the
xcrun simctl utility that Apple provides for interacting with the various Xcode developer tools.
xcrun simctl is the tool for interacting with the iOS simulator and is the main focus of this module. The syntax is designed to remain as close to that which would be used on the command line as possible. For example, to list all runtimes on the command line you would do:
xcrun simctl list runtimes
With this module you can simply do:
from isim import Runtime print(Runtime.list_all())
Most functions are on the item that they affect. So instead of running something on a device like:
xcrun simctl do_thing <DEVICE_ID> arg1 arg2 ...
You can do this:
from isim import Device iPhone7 = Device.from_name("iPhone 7") iPhone7.do_thing(arg1, arg2, ...)
To run the tests, all you need to do is run
python3 -m tox (can be installed by running
python3 -m pip install tox).
