This is NOT the branch that you should be using if you are new to Looping. You should be stable on Loop Master before moving to the Auto Bolus branch.  Note that Workspace versions may not always be in sync with the normal versions. Depending on the developers and what changes they have made, the Workspace updates can lag behind the normal release.

Please read the documentation on the AB branch thoroughly before building. The primary documentation and support for this branch is at:

Looped FaceBook Group

If you have not built a Workspace before, you will want to look at the “two things to notice” xCode graphic on Loopdocs that explains how to select the workspace and sign the targets: Loopdocs Workspace

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Copy/Paste this code into Terminal all on one line:

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

3. Hit enter

4. When the script has completed running, close Terminal.

Note:  AB will be located in Downloads-BuildLoop-LoopAutomaticBolus-[download date]


Technical details on Script.   Never run scripts from a source you do not trust.

The shortcode above actually runs this script: /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

The actual source code of the script can be found here, and in fact, you can manually run the commands in the script if you prefer.

For those of you interested in trying Jon Fawcett’s AB Strategy Switching Patch, click this link to his video. The AB Strategy Switching Patch adds automatic switching between AB and temporary basals (TB) based upon the current BG reading. Essentially, if over the set BG value, it will use AB. If under the set value, it will use TB. Of course, this Patch comes with the standard Loop cautions to use at your own risk.

The patch can be found in Jon’s github repository.  The video walks you through all of the steps that you need to take, but here’s a summary:
1.  Click Code and then Download Zip.
2.  Once the zip file has completed downloading, click on it to extract it
3.  Move the ABSwitcherandProfileUploader file to the LoopWorkspaces/Loop folder.
4.  In Terminal, you need to be in the Loop folder that contains the ABSwitcherandProfileUploader file, so you’ll need to type cd and then drag the Loop folder that contains that file to Terminal, so that you are now in the correct folder within Terminal.
5.  Type, git apply and then press tab and then ABSwitcherandProfileUploader.txt will appear immediately below, copy and paste the entire string (including location), on the same row as “git apply” and hit enter.
