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:
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

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 https://raw.githubusercontent.com/loopnlearn/LoopBuildScripts/main/BuildLoopAutomaticBolus.sh)"
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.
