Automatically update info.plist with git build number and hash when building in Xcode
#!/usr/bin/env ruby
# Giants' Shoulders Trodden Upon
# Based on the xcode auto-versioning script for Subversion by Axel Andersson
# Updated for git by Marcus S. Zarra and Matt Long
# Converted to ruby by Abizer Nasir
# Improved? By Jonathan Zhan
# Appends the number of commits on the current branch and a short git hash to the version number set in Xcode.
# Writes this information to CFBundleVersion in your Apps info.plist
# How to use:
# Xcode > Product > Edit Schemes
# Pick a Scheme (I use Archive, so it only gets updatethis when doing new distribution builds)
# Add a run script to pre-actions for your chosen scheme
# Set your shell to "/usr/bin/env ruby" and get build settings from your target of choice
# You're done!

1eeeb6 updates the info.plist in your application binary as well as the info file in your project.

Updated so that it works if your project directory has a space somewhere. Oops.
