Does anyone know of a way to automate publishing of a Roku channel? I've built a toolchain that performs some custom build steps and outputs either a .zip or .pkg file. I often do builds which I upload to a private channel for testing, and I find it cumbersome to login and navigate the website each time. I'd love to add another option to my build script which performs the upload.
Has anyone tackled this successfully?
But it's only been one day!
But probably you're right.
I can't think of a single good reason to do this, and about a million good reasons not to. How often are you publishing updates to channels that you need to automate it, and is it often enough to risk writing a script that could do it accidentally? Sounds very dangerous to me...
Ah, but running your own 'channel store' - even for a single channel, is against the developer agreement.
“Channel Store” means a storefront of channel applications that Roku makes available to End Users in a
defined territory, which storefront is provided by the Player as an on-screen menu that permits End Users
in the applicable territory to browse and install said channel applications on their Player.
