Project Info

Potatso has in total 33 (2 as submodules dependencies as used as local file in Cocoapod) dependencies as following

  • 28 Cocoapod dependencies
  • 1 Carthage dependency
  • 4 submodules dependencies

The project is tested with Xcode 8.2 (8C38) on iOS 10.2 (14C92) device with cocoapod version 1.1.1+, and carthage version 0.18.1.
If you experienced an expected issue, try to use those versions.

How to Build Project

Perform the following steps to be able to build the project. Be warned that you should not call pod update as newer version of pod frameworks that Potatso depends on might break building process and there will be errors.

  1. git submodule update --init to update git submodule
  2. pod install to pull down dependencies into our project
  3. carthage update to pull down dependencies into Carthage/Checkouts folder and build each one
  4. Open Potatso.xcworkspace then Build and Run the project. Done.

Build Notices

If you try to build for iOS 10.3, please try to use XCode Version 8.3 (8E162) onwards and only for release version.

Code Notices

There're a couple of issues that needed to look at, but after testing, it does not affect the functionality of the app.

  • In file Potatso/Core/API.swift, it's the following code focusing on line with comment that I can't figure it out yet how to migrate it to Swift 3 code.

    var JSONToMap: AnyObject?
    if let keyPath = keyPath, keyPath.isEmpty == false {
        //JSONToMap = (result.value? as AnyObject).value(forKeyPath: keyPath)
        JSONToMap = nil
    } else {
        JSONToMap = result.value as AnyObject?
  • Potatso core code depends on version 1.7.0 of Eureka with manual migration to Swift 3. It's already done and linked to project. But you will see observeValue() function in Eureka/Source/Rows/PostalAddressRow.swift that has been commented for all of its function code due to Eureka's newer version 2.0.0-beta.1 doesn't include such file in the project anymore, but it still works with no problem. This note is meant to mark that there is going to be a lot of effort if we decide to depend on Eureka version 2.0.0-beta.1 as we need to change a lot of Potatso core code.
