Symbiote is a web-based tool for inspecting the state of your native iOS application. It is part of Frank, and needs a Frank server to be embedded within your iOS app.

Hacking on Symbiote

This repo includes a little fake symbiote server. This means that you don't have to always run Symbiote embedded inside a native app. If you're just hacking on UI stuff you can stand up the fake symbiote server and go from there.

To run the fake server:

gem install rack
open http://localhost:9292

  • Mouse over ersatz to highlight view in hierarchy
  • history of selectors
