⚠️The repository contains tons of comments and todos in Russian language 🖼I deleted all assets except App logo because the license agreements requires it 🔬This source code is not for production and not for distribution. I shared it just for educational purposes
- Xcode 9 and later
- iOS 11 and later

You can try VK Photos by downloading the app to your iPhone from App Store. It's free (iOS 11+ required)
- Create VK application: vk.com
- Obtain your VK app ID and insert it into
- Run Carthage:
$ carthage update --platform ios
- You should add the compiled frameworks to your project manually
- Install Firebase SDK: documentation (or just mute all Analytics calls, you probably dont need it)
- Copy your
- and unfortunately no matter how perfect you are done you will not be able to run the application properly in the simulator
Why app doesn't display anything when running in simulator? (or just crash)
Because VK Photos app use many custom API calls.
To simplify the logic of the app in some places I wrote a lot of custom API methods using greate execute method. These methods are stored on the VK API servers and accessible only to my VK application. For obvious reasons, these methods I can not disclose.
