eRouška (rouška = face mask in Czech) helps to fight against COVID-19.
eRouška uses Bluetooth to scan the area around the device for other eRouška users and saves the data of these encounters.
It's the only app in Czechia authorized to use Exposure Notifications API from Apple/Google.
Who is developing eRouška?
Starting with version 2.0, the eRouška application is developed by the Ministry of Health in collaboration with the National Agency for Communication and Information Technologies (NAKIT). Earlier versions of eRouška application were developed by a team of volunteers from the COVID19CZ community. Most of original eRouška developers continue to work on newer versions in the NAKIT team.
We are open-source from day one and we will be happy to work with people in other countries if they want to develop a similar app. Contact David Vávra for technical details.
Building the App from the source code
Exposure notifications work only with approved Ministry account.
You can build using your own account when you delete
com.apple.developer.exposure-notification entitlement from
project.yml file under
eRouska Dev ->
properties and change code signing to your account.
Command line dependencies
Mint to manage command line tools.
xcodegen is used to generate project files and entitlements. To generate a project workspace, run
./setup.sh in the project root directory. It will generate project files and install all needed dependencies. Do not run
pod install manually anymore. Use the
setup.sh script or run
bundle pod install instead.
To update your code signing settings, you would need to copy template
.xcconfig files from
Configs/Templates/ directory to
Configs/ directory and fill them with proper values.
xcodegen is looking for these files in
Configs directory and use them in project generation. All
.xcconfig files in
Configs directory are ignored by git, so you don't have to worry about accidentally pushing your code signing settings or pulling somebody elses.
