RoutinePub 5.0 is a complete overhaul focused on speed and simplicity

RoutinePub has been rewritten from scratch. This takes it from 535 actions to 245.

Most of the functionality you know is still there, but there are some important changes.

Publishing shortcut updates is now done entirely via the main menu. To publish an update, run RoutinePub and select “Publish Update” from main menu. Select a shortcut from your library to continue.

This removes the ability to use the share sheet from a shortcut to upload it to RoutinePub. This is for several reasons.

1. The share sheet method requires RoutinePub to “show” while running. Showing shortcuts in the editor is very expensive from a performance perspective. It can lead complex shortcuts to crash. The previous version of RoutinePub integrated the functionality of the AirBag shortcut to protect against this. With RoutinePub 5.0, even that is no longer necessary as the shortcut never runs via the editor.

2. The new method enables you to publish multiple shortcuts at once. Unlike the old method, you may now select multiple shortcuts from the main menu and they will each be released one after the other. You will be able to specify version numbers and release notes for each one separately.

3. This new method allows RoutinePub to get the name of the shortcut you are uploading without having to download that data from the iCloud API. Previously when submitting only the URL, RoutinePub had to get the name of the shortcut from iCloud to handle the “Associations” functionality. Now it can read the name of the shortcut you select from the list directly, which speeds up the process and requires no new network calls.

In order to support multiple updates at once, the option to open a share sheet after publishing an update has been removed. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Updating RoutinePub is now handled via the main menu rather than when it runs. In the event that server-side changes necessitate and update for RoutinePub to keep working, you’ll be able to use the main menu to get the update.

Shortcut associations are no longer managed as much through the main menu. While you can select and delete multiple associations from the main menu (with multiple selections at a time being a new feature) you cannot add new associations from the main menu. While this feature could possibly return at a later time, currently there is no need for it, as any necessary associations can simply be added when you are submitting an update.

You can now submit a shortcut even easier than in the last update! You no longer need to enter an iCloud URL. You still have the option, but now you can also simply select a shortcut from your library to upload it to RoutineHub. Thanks to RoutineHub user @BuzzTheGamer23 for the idea!

AirBags now come standard!

This update adds the functionality of the AirBag shortcut built into RoutinePub. This will help prevent most crashes related to publishing shortcuts with RoutinePub.

If you are using RoutinePub 3.3 or higher, you do not need to use AirBag with it. You can still use AirBag with other shortcuts, as needed.

If you don’t know about AirBag, it’s a new shortcut that helps protect you from crashes in the Shortcuts app. You can find it on RoutineHub!

THIS UPDATE WILL RESET YOUR CONFIGURATION.

This update lays the groundwork for additional (unplanned) changes to be made in the future by consolidating all of the different settings files into a single file.

You will need to re-enter your API key after this update and your associations will be reset. This should be the only time this is necessary.

You can also delete the following three files from iCloud Drive » Shortcuts » RoutinePub as they are no longer required:

Associations.json
API Key.txt
Setup.txt

RoutinePub now learns which shortcuts on your device go to which listings on your RoutineHub account. It will automatically make these connections whenever you successfully upload a shortcut to RoutineHub.

When you upload future versions of a shortcut that has a RoutineHub association, RoutinePub will skip the step of asking which shortcut you’re uploading and automatically upload it to the correct listing. If there is no current association for a shortcut you will be prompted to choose a listing from your RoutineHub account just like in previous versions.

If you need to manually add or remove one of these RoutineHub associations, you can use the Shortcut Associations function from the main menu.

The settings for changing or deleting your API key are now under the Manage API Key function in the main menu.

Fixes a bug related to installing new versions of RoutinePub.
