Gimbal iOS Basic Sample

Minimal Gimbal Integration Example on iOS. After setting up your application, place(s) and communication(s) using the Gimbal Manager the code below will yield Place Events and Local Notifications.

Before you create your iOS application

Using the Gimbal Manager: https://manager.gimbal.com/

  • create your Gimbal account
  • create an Application using bundle ID com.gimbal.hello-gimbal-ios (generates you API KEY)
  • create at least one Place (using a Beacon or Geofence) you can buy Beacons here http://store.gimbal.com/
  • create at least one Communicate (used for the local notification)
  • download the latest V2 SDK

Installing Dependencies

We use cocoapods to manage dependencies https://cocoapods.org/

  • run the command sudo gem install cocoapods (if you do not already have cocoapods installed)
  • cd to the directory where you have cloned this project
  • run the command pod install
  • open hello-gimbal-ios.xcworkspace (not the .xcodeproj file)

In the sample iOS application

  • fill your API KEY into ViewController.m
  • add the Gimbal.framework from the SDK zip you downloaded
  • to enable Gimbal to operate in the background set your application to 'Uses Bluetooth LE accessories' background mode
