Upload and manage your assets in the iTunes Store using the iTunes Store's Transporter (+iTMSTransporter+).

=== Overview

require "itunes/store/transporter"

itms = iTunes::Store::Transporter.new(:username => "SomeUser", :shortname => "shrt", # or :itc_provider, if you have no shortname :password => "[email protected]!")

itms.upload("/path/to/yourpackage.itmsp") metadata = itms.lookup(:apple_id => "yourpackage")

begin itms.verify("/path/to/package2.itmsp", :verify_asssets => false) rescue iTunes::Store::Transporter::ExecutionError => e puts "Exited with #{e.exitstatus}"

e.errors.each do |error| puts "#{error.message} - #{error.code}" puts "Basically, you have some faulty metadata" if error.missing_data? end end

=== Description

iTunes::Store::Transporter is a wrapper around Apple's +iTMSTransporter+ program. It currently supports the following operations:

  • Upload packages
  • Validate packages
  • Retrieve status information
  • Lookup package metadata and video assets
  • List providers
  • Retrieve iTunes metadata schemas

It also includes +itms+, an executable that's sorta like using +iTMSTransporter+ directly except that it can send email notifications and allows one to set global/per-command defaults via $HOME/.itms.

=== Requirements

=== Installation

Add gem "itunes_store_transporter" to your Ruby project's Gemfile to use as a library, or run gem install itunes_store_transporter to install system-wide for CLI usage.

=== Locating iTMSTransporter

If the +iTMSTransporter+ cannot be found in {one your platform's known locations}[https://github.com/sshaw/itunes_store_transporter/blob/fcb4f0f9ada4a45764160beac6a049b0d419c8a9/lib/itunes/store/transporter/shell.rb#L31] you must specify it when creating an instance of iTunes::Store::Transporter via {the :path option}[http://www.rubydoc.info/gems/itunes_store_transporter/ITunes/Store/Transporter/ITMSTransporter#initialize-instance_method].

If you're using the bundled +itms+ command you must use its +--path+ option or specify the path in the itms config file. See the +itms+ section for more info.

=== Using itms


Note that options with a value must contain the equals character ("="). The format is --option=value and not --option value.

==== Examples

itms upload --username=sshaw --password=w3cAllYoU --transport=aspera a_package.itmsp
itms version
itms status --no-print-stderr --vendor-id=X123123 --username=sshaw --password=sekr3t_ --shortname=ss

==== Username, Password, Short Name

Most all commands require your username and password, some require a shortname. These can be specified on the command line via the +--username+, +--password+, and +--shortname+ options, or via an +itms+ config file. See the config file section below.

==== Lookup command

The lookup command differs slightly from the gem by allowing you to download low-quality copies of the assets associated with the looked up metadata. These assets are created by Apple (at the time of this writing, Apple only allows you to download full and preview assets, there is nothing in +itms+ that would prevent you from downloading other types of assets if/when they're supported).

For example, to lookup the metadata for package +X123+ and download low-quality copies of all the assets:

itms lookup --vendor-id=X123 --assets

To download a particular asset type just provide its name:

itms lookup --vendor-id=X123 --assets=preview

If there are multiple territories this will download the preview assets for each of them. To only download assets in a given territory or territories use:

itms lookup --vendor-id=X123 --assets=preview:US itms lookup --vendor-id=X123 --assets=preview:US:BR

If necessary multiple asset types can be seperated by a comma:

itms lookup --vendor-id=X123 --assets=full,preview itms lookup --vendor-id=X123 --assets=full,preview:MX

==== Config file

Default options and email notifications can be placed in a YAML file at $HOME/.itms. To skip loading the config file use the --no-config option.

# Global command defaults
path: /usr/bin
username: sshaw
password: Pa55W0rd!

# Global email defaults
  to: [email protected]
  from: [email protected]
  host: smtp.example.com

# Verify command
  shortname: lUzer

# Upload command
  shortname: enc0d3rz
  transport: Aspera
  rate: 750000
  # Email notifications for the upload command
      cc: [email protected]
      subject: iTunes Upload <%= @apple_id %>
      message: |
        <%= @username %> uploaded it using <%= @transport %>

      to: [email protected]
      subject: Upload Failed!
      message: |
        Here's the problem:

        <%= @error %>

        Fix it!

As you can see, command options are turned into template variables.
