The free and plus versions versions are identical, except the plus version offers the following enhancements:

  • The paid version supports automatic backups to Google Drive
  • The paid version automatically processes exchange rate conversions
  • The paid version allows you to automatically break down prices by category/payment method in your reports
  • The paid version allows you to edit/customize the pdf report footer (by default, it is "Report Generated with Smart Receipts")

To install, clone or pull down this project. Once you the code on your machine, be sure to install cocoapods and then run the following commands:

pod repo update
pod install

Please note that that in order to use this project fully, you will need to replace the following place holder files:

  • SmartReceipts/Service Account.json. This is is used for Firebase crash reporting.
  • SmartReceipts/GADConstants.m. This is required to display AdMob advertisments. Replace this with an empty string to prevent ads from loading successfully.
  • SmartReceipts/Supporting Files/Secrets.swift. This is used for low usage "secret" keys that are secret enough that I do not wish to place them in GitHub but are not so secret that they need to be removed from the compiled IPA entirely.

It is recommended to run the following commands after cloning this project in order to avoid accidentally pushing changes to these files:

  • git update-index --assume-unchanged SmartReceipts/Ads/GADConstants.m
  • git update-index --assume-unchanged SmartReceipts/Supporting Files/Secrets.swift
  • git update-index --assume-unchanged SmartReceipts/ServiceAccount.json

This will prevent git from tracking these changes against your local secrets.

Continuous Integration

We currently use Travis-CI for our continuous integration in order perform tests against new commits, allowing us to avoid potential regressions. You can monitor the current build status here:

All repository secrets have been replaced with placeholder files, so Travis should be able to build properly for all requests.
