CLI tool written in Swift heavily inspired by


Travis status Version Swift 4.0 License Twitter: @kdawgwilk

Autobahn is a set of tools (written in Swift) heavily inspired by fastlane to automate many day to day tasks associated with development of apps in the Apple ecosystem. Currently most progess has been made on a sub package called Shuttle that is basically a port of fastlane's spaceship which is an HTTP client for interacting with the Apple Developer portal and iTunesConnect.

NOTE: This is still a work in progress and there is still much to do, here is a rough list of things I would like to see in the near future

ToDO List:

  • DSL for defining highways
  • >90% Code Coverage
  • CLI tool
    • drive <highway> drives the highway specified
      • need to make this the default still
    • init creates template Autobahn.swift file
    • edit command that creates a temp playground with autocomplete working for Autobahn.swift
    • verbose obviously
    • actions lists all available actions
    • action <action_name> that describes the action
    • help to explain how each command works
  • Autobahn.swift config file see danger-swift
  • Homebrew install support
  • Plugin architecture
  • Git support
  • Support .env


$ autobahn drive [highway]

Example Autobahn.swift

enum Highway: String, AutobahnDescription.Highway {
  case build, test, deploy, release


.beforeAll { highway in
  print("Driving highway: \(highway)")

.highway(.build) {
  try sh("swift", "build")

.highway(.test) {
  try sh("swift", "test")

.highway(.deploy) {

.highway(.release, dependsOn: [.build, .deploy]) {

.afterAll { highway in
  print("Successfully drove highway: \(highway)")

.onError { name, error in
  print("Error driving highway: \(name)")
  print("Error: \(error)")



TODO: Not supported quite yet

$ brew tap kdawgwilk/homebrew-tap
$ brew install autobahn


$ git clone
$ cd Autobahn
$ swift build

# You can run the cli from the build dir like this:
# .build/debug/autobahn drive <highway_name>
$ .build/debug/autobahn drive build

# Or I find it helpful to symlink to `/usr/local/bin` so I can run it directly
$ ln -s `pwd`/.build/debug/autobahn /usr/local/bin/autobahn

# autobahn drive <highway_name>
$ autobahn drive build
