Building RPI Tours
In order to build and run RPI Tours for iOS, you will need the following
Since we are using Mapbox as our mapping service, you must have a set of API keys from Mapbox. Mapbox provides you with these upon account creation. They need to live in a file somewhere in the project structure called
This file needs to have the contents like this.
import Foundation let mapBoxAPIKey:String = INSERT_YOUR_API_KEY_HERE";
The project expects the API key to be assocated with the string value
Command Line Installation
- Navigate to
pod installto install the dependencies
Notice: You need to open the project by launching
RPI Tours.xcworkspace, not
RPI Tours.xcodeproj. This ensures that the dependiences are included in the worksapce and XCode can see them
After installing the necessary dependiences via Cocoapods, all you should have to do is run the project. By default it will probably try to deploy to an iOS Simulator.
