Adding myLauncher to your iPhone App

These steps assume you understand the basics of iOS application development. Follow the following steps in order to add myLauncher into your project:

  1. Clone the myLauncher repository: 'git clone git://github.com/Jarada/mylauncher.git'

  2. Locate the MyLauncher folder under '../myLauncher/myLauncher/Classes/'

    • Copy the MyLauncher folder into your project folder.
    • Import all the files within that folder into your Xcode project.
  3. Locate the RootViewController files under '../myLauncher/myLauncher/'

    • Copy RootViewController.h and RootViewController.m into your project folder
    • Import both files into your Xcode project.
  4. In your application delegate header file make the following changes (AppDelegate.h):

    • Import the RootViewController header file:

      import "RootViewController.h"

  5. In your application delegate implementation file make the following changes (AppDelegate.m):

    • Inside applicationDidFinishLaunching modify your UINavigationController to initialize with RootViewController:

      navigationController = [[UINavigationController alloc] initWithRootViewController:[[RootViewController alloc] init]];

  6. In your prefix file make the following changes (AppName_Prefix.pch):

    • Outside the ifdef define the shortcut for color:

      define COLOR(r,g,b) [UIColor colorWithRed:r/255.0 green:g/255.0 blue:b/255.0 alpha:1]

  7. In your RootViewController (RootViewController.m):

    • Import your view controllers before the @implementation block, for example:

      import "ItemViewController.h"

    • In the loadView method add your ItemViewController into appControllers:

      [appControllers setObject:[ItemViewController class] forKey:@"ItemViewController"];

    • Adjust the rest of this method to fill in the appropriate icons and settings

  1. IMPORTANT: You will need to make the necessary changes inside the application delegate and RootViewController in order to have the correct icons and in order to load the correct view controllers.
