The primary CareKit framework codebase supports iOS and requires Xcode 7.0 or newer. The CareKit framework has a Base SDK version of 9.0, meaning that apps using the CareKit framework can run on devices with iOS 9.0 or newer.
The latest stable version of CareKit framework can be cloned with:
git clone -b stable --recurse-submodules https://github.com/carekit-apple/carekit.git
Or, for the latest changes, use the
git clone --recurse-submodules https://github.com/carekit-apple/carekit.git
Build the CareKit framework by opening
CareKit.xcodeproj and running the
CareKit framework target. Optionally, run the unit tests too.
Adding the CareKit framework to your App
To get started, drag
CareKit.xcodeproj from your checkout into
your iOS app project in Xcode.
Then, embed the CareKit framework as a dynamic framework in your app, by adding it to the Embedded Binaries section of the General pane for your target as shown in the figure below.
Discovering How CareKit Works
One of the best ways to see how CareKit works is to look at the OCKSample app. You can find it in the CareKit sample directory. You will need to add the CareKit framework to the sample, as described in the previous section.
Build and run OCKSample. Then take a look at the code and experiment by making a few changes.
