Dear Magesh

Please find below link to download gen plugins

download.kony.com/onpremise/Beta/plugins/iOS/65/ios10-6.5.3_GMSeed.zip

 

After downloaded, extract it, you will be finding VMAppWithKonylib/gen 
 

Using Terminal in MAC, navigate to VMAppWithKonylib/gen 
 

Ex: cd  /Users/Kony/Desktop/Plugins/24112016/VMAppWithKonylib/gen 

 

Now use, perl extract.pl <KAR file path goes here >
 

For More information visit below link,

Hi Vamseekrishna - Thanks for your reply. I downloaded that file and extracted it. Ran the extract.pl command for my .kar file. But, as mentioned in the other post - http://community.kony.com/developer/forum/generating-ipa-file-kar-file-mobile-app - XCode did not show any new project. (My XCode was already open with some other code). Rather, inside gen folder, I see another folder - konyappunzipped folder, which seems to contain my app data. But how do I open it in XCode and use it as an iOS project. Kindly clarify.

Pls let me know if you need more details.

Note: I tried even with my XCode closed, but it did not open XCode with a new project.

Dear Magesh,

Use below command after extracting with perl extract.pl


open ../VMAppWithKonylib.xcodeproj

 

So, now, Xcode will get opened automatically with your project

Hi Vamsee - I had figured it out myself, when I tried to play around with the only xcode project file available there. Thanks.
