How to import PosterousObjC into your project

  1. Download PosterousObjC source to your computer

  2. Locate folder "PosterousClient" under "PosterousObjC/Classes". Drag and drop it into your project. A dialog will appear -- make sure "Copy items" is checked, "Recursively create groups for any added folders" radio button is selected, "Reference Type" is "Default" before clicking "Add".

  3. Right click on the "Frameworks" group in your project and select Add > Existing Frameworks. Then locate the following frameworks and add them to the project (if they do not already exist in your application)

    • CFNetwork
    • SystemConfiguration
    • MobileCoreServices
    • CoreGraphics
    • libz.1.2.3.dylib

Calling PosterousObjC methods in your project

Note: You will need to set EMAIL, PASSWORD, APITOKEN (located at the top of the PosterousClient.h) to your Posterous email, password, and apitoken before using this library in your project.

  1. Import PosterousClient.h in the header class of the controller that will use this library.

    import "PosterousClient.h"
    
  2. Create an instance of PosterousClient within your method

    PosterousClient *client = [[PosterousClient alloc] initWithCredentials:EMAIL
                                                              password:PASSWORD
                                                              apitoken:APITOKEN];
    
  3. Call a Posterous Client method within the same method you created an instance of PosterousClient

    GetAUsersPrimarySiteCompletionBlock complete = ^(Site *site, NSError *error)
    {
         if (error) 
        {
            NSLog(@"GetASingleSite error: %@", [error userInfo]);
        } 
        else
        {    
            Site *result = site;
    
        NSString *siteString = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"id: %@\n name: %@\n is_private: %@\n full_hostname: %@\n posts_url: %@\n posts_count: %@\n comment_persmission: %@",
                               result._id,result.name,
                               result.is_private,result.full_hostname,result.posts_url,
                               result.posts_count, result.comment_permission];
    
                            NSLog(@"site: %@",siteString);
    }
    };
    
    PosterousRequest *request = [PosterousRequest alloc];
    [client GetAUsersPrimarySite:request completionBlock:complete];
    
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
