The sunset of Windmill

approx. 2 minutes read

The last version of Windmill on the Mac is 3.1.2. There are no plans to support Xcode 11 or any future versions of Xcode. Windmill on the iPhone never made it to the App Store.

Windmill made continuous delivery of iOS apps accessible by moving away from the idea that developers need to manage and maintain a set of scripts alongside some obscure configuration as part of a toolchain.

Windmill was designed to uphold developers’ privacy and security by not asking them to share their credentials or private keys.

The architecture of Windmill also meant that developers didn’t have to pay for infrastructure on the cloud.

Unfortunately, a developer tool like Windmill is not possible within the Apple ecosystem.
