FBSimulatorControl – A Mac OS X library for managing and manipulating iOS Simulators

Just launched by Facebook: FBSimulatorControl, A Mac OS X library for managing, booting and interacting with multiple iOS Simulators simultaneously.

FBSimulatorControl works by linking with the private DVTFoundation, CoreSimulator and DVTiPhoneSimulatorRemoteClient frameworks that are present inside the Xcode bundle. Doing this allows FBSimulatorControl to talk directly to the same APIs that Xcode and simctl do. This, combined with launching the Simulator binaries directly, means that multiple Simulators can be launched simultaneously.

The original use-case for FBSimulatorControl was to boot Simulators to run End-to-End tests with WebDriverAgent.
