Create Sparkle Appcast File.app produces invalid download url in the XML

In the enclosure tag the url attribute has an URL which begins with https:/ instead of https://. Maybe the script is only prepared for non-secure http-URLs.

It would also be great to have this feature included into SD Notary, so it can generate appcast files.

Thanks for posting this. I had been meaning to post something about this but never got around to it. I’ve found the exact same issue and have wanted to find a way to fix this but in the meantime I just manually edit the xml by hand each time like an animal.

It’s been a while since I looked deeply into this but from what I can remember/tell from the brief look I just took now is that the error seems to be on the line that says:

	set appcastZipLink to appcastDir's stringByAppendingPathComponent:"downloads"

I’ve modified the script/applet that Shane provides, and the above line is from my modified code. I haven’t yet gone back to check where the error occurs in the original code.

But here’s an extract that I used to test where the error was creeping in.

-- just use the original code up to this point
	set appcastLink to theNSDictionary's objectForKey:"SUFeedURL"
	if appcastLink = missing value then error "The application does not have an entry for SUFeedURL in its Info.plist file."

	set appcastName to appcastLink's lastPathComponent()
	set theText to appcastLink's substringToIndex:((appcastLink's |length|()) - (appcastName's |length|()))

	-- the following line removes the /
	set appcastZipLink to theText's stringByAppendingPathComponent:"downloads"

	-- set appcastZipLink to appcastZipLink's stringByAppendingPathComponent:(appName's stringByAddingPercentEncodingWithAllowedCharacters:(NSCharacterSet's URLQueryAllowedCharacterSet()))

	set theText to "theText is " & (theText as text) & return & "appcastZIPLink is " & (appcastZipLink as text)
	set theText to (appName as text) & space & (shortVersion as text)

	set theText to NSString's stringWithString:theText
	using terms from scripting additions
		display dialog (theText as text)
	end using terms from
