This article shows the minimum development that must be done to start registering devices and being able to carry out the first push campaigns.
Adding the Chat dependencies
Chat is available through CocoaPods.
CocoaPods is a valid dependency manager for Swift and Objective-C, being the most popular in iOS development.
If you don't have it yet, install CocoaPods. Open your terminal and run the following commands:
$ cd /ROOT/OF/YOUR/PROJECT $ gem install cocoapods $ pod init
To integrate the Chat of indigitall it is necessary to add the following dependencies:
- The SocketIO-client library
- Indigitall's Chat
Modify the PodFile file of your project and add this code:
target '<YourTarget>' do pod 'indigitall-ios-chat' end
Add the corresponding pod of the Chat inside the names of the target that your application has.
Update the CocoaPod repository and install the dependencies from the terminal:
$ pod repo update $ pod install
From here you must use .workspace instead of .xcproject to work on the project.
The main difference is that .xcproject is for a single project and .workspace can contain multiple projects.
