$ open NextcloudTalk.xcworkspace

Pull Requests will be checked with SwiftLint. We strongly encourage the installation of SwiftLint to detect issues as early as possible.

Run the project

Depending on how you try to run the project, you'll notice that it's not running "as-is". There are a few steps to make it work with your developer account:

  1. The project contains multiple targets (currently NextcloudTalk, ShareExtension and NotificationServiceExtension). The bundle ids of those targets start with com.nextcloud.Talk which can't be used outside of Nextcloud GmbH. To run the project, change all bundle ids to something that's allowed for your developer account: com.<yourname>.Talk.
  2. To communicate between the main app and its extensions, app groups are used. The group identifier for NextcloudTalk is set to, with the same restriction as above. Change the group identifier of all targets to<yourname>.Talk.
  3. Open the file NCAppBranding.m (can be found in XCode under NextcloudTalk -> Settings) and change bundleIdentifier and groupIdentifier to the same values you used in 1. and 2.
  4. Run the project
