In order to run e2e tests its necessary for me to download the simulator builds from expo before I install them on my iOS simulator. I can download these tar files manually from the build page via the download button, but I cannot find a way to download the build using Expo CLI.
it looks like you are maybe confusing publish with build – publish is an over the air update, build is the process of creating a standalone app binary. when you run expo build:ios -t simulator the url that points to the resulting archive will be printed to stdout when it completes
you can use a webhook to save the url to somewhere on your end and then fetch that value.
eas build has a command called eas build:list that lets you list builds, and eas build:show [build-id] to find recent builds. we don’t plan on backporting these to the classic build system. it sounds like in this context you’d still want a way to find filter by types, so you could find the latest build for simulator.
anyhow, you can use build webhooks to save the url to the simulator build somewhere, then access that whenever you need.
