How can I generate an iOS project (.xcodeproj) with AppleScript (without XCode)?

What do you mean "generate an iOS project"? What is the functionality of your desired outcome? – Daniel Feb 5 '12 at 18:13

You could create an empty iOS Xcode project once, put it somewhere on your disk, and then use an AppleScript to copy the folder (.xcodeproj is basically just a folder) to the desired destination.

(But I can't think of a single use for this...)
