Embedded Binaries function in XCode Manipulation API



Embedded Binaries function in XCode Manipulation API missing.

There is no embedded binaries function in XCode Manipulation API right now, which is necessary to incorporating e.g.: HangIt into apps.

There is a answers page about it:

There is also the according forum thread:

This is also necessary to build apps via Cloud Build or any automatic build system as for local builds you can just add it manually as workaround.

    Could someone explain what has been done to resolve this issue and what I need to do to use it.

    I went up to 2017.2.0b9 and was expecting to find a new PBXProject method, something like AddDynamicFrameworkToProject or AddEmbeddedBinary but could not find anything.

    I then followed the post for cloning the library and adding my own function, something which is a last resort. I got it working and can see my library added in xcode but when I run I get "App installation failed, no code signature found". If I then remove that embedded binary and re-add it in xcode it works again.

    This issue prevents me from using cloud build or our local team city set up from building on ios.

    Is this available now in Unity 5.6.1f1? I could not find a way to achieve it.

    This issue still prevents me from fully automatic continuous integration. I spend so many hours in Xcode reattaching (and forgetting to) all my binaries : (

    I need this too. Seems like the problem exists for a long time, but still no solution?

    Is there any news on this?

    What is the timeline for an updated Xcode manipulation API?
    Any sort of update would be useful since it seems like changes to the open sourced API won't be accepted:

    Any updates on this? It seems more and more, I'm using frameworks/plugins that require this behavior.
