Project description

# protool

A tool for dealing with provisioning profiles.

What can it do?

  • Read profiles as XML or as a dictionary
  • Read the values from the profile
  • Diff two profiles to see what has changed

### Installation

pip install protool

### Examples:

import protool profile = protool.ProvisioningProfile(“/path/to/profile”)

# Get the diff of two profiles diff = protool.diff(“/path/to/first”, “/path/to/second”, tool_override=”diff”)

# Get the UUID of a profile print profile.uuid

# Get the full XML of the profile print profile.xml

# Get the parsed contents of the profile as a dictionary print profile.contents()

Alternatively, from the command line:

# Get the diff protool diff –profiles /path/to/profile1 /path/to/profile2 –tool diff

# Get the UUID of a profile protool read –profile /path/to/profile –key UUID

# Get the raw XML (identical to using security cms -D -i /path/to/profile) protool decode –profile /path/to/profile
