How Do I Use It?

Unfortunately there is no sample project, but there are unit tests that execute the two methods this library implements. See RFRddMeTests.

  1. Create a new Xcode 4 workspace and include RFRddMe. It's not a Framework, just include the source.
  2. Drag RFRddMe.h into your main app's project. This will let you communicate with
  3. Implement RFRddMeProtocol. There are only three methods to implement. See RFRddMeProtocol.h for the protocol and RFRddMeTests.h/.m for an implementation.
  4. Include RFRddMeShortUrl.h, RFRddMeExpandedUrl.h, and RFRddMeError.h in your implementation of RFRddMeProtocol.
  5. Write an application that uses the service.
