The Eidolon Build Process

Since we originally built Eidolon – an auction bidding kiosk app – the project has largely remained in maintenance mode. Eidolon was one of the first projects that we used automated deploys for, and the deploy process has remained largely unchanged. I believe this stability of the deploy process is a testament to how well the automated deploys have gone.

This post is going to detail the mechanics of automated deploys for an enterprise-distributed iOS application, discuss lessons we learned and applied to other projects' deploy processes, and describe some of the changes we'd like to make. Our project is entirely open source, so you can check out any part of the code on your own or open an issue with questions.

Deploying Eidolon

It's one command on the terminal to deploy Eidolon:

Over the weekend, I lamented the death of Dropbox. Well, they're not dead, just dead to me. I discussed setting up BItTorrent Sync and some of the security problems with common setup tutorials, and got some great feedback. A few people pointed to Sync (referral link), which after investigating, I'm pleased to say is awesome and has become my Dropbox replacement.

My goal online is to minimize the surface area I expose to internet mass surveillance. An absolutist approach would be to only use open source software, with keys that I generate, and on a server that I physically control. That's just... way too much work. The reason that Dropbox is so popular is that it's so convenient, and I was hoping to get something like Dropbox in terms of convenience, but with a reduced risk of being surveilled.

And this is why I like Sync: it's premise is really simple. It's a folder, and
