LocationManager

Location manager is a CLLocationManager wrapper written entirely in Swift

Updated for XCode 8.0 and Swift 3.0

Features:

  1. Location update with closure & delegate support

  2. Geocoding and reverse geocoding using Apple service

  3. Geocoding and reverse geocoding using Google service

  4. Closure returns CLPlacemark object, making it easier to place pin on map

Installation with CocoaPods

CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Objective-C, which automates and simplifies the process of using 3rd-party libraries. You can install it with the following command:

$ gem install cocoapods

Podfile

To integrate VMLocationManager into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git'
platform :ios, '8.0'

target 'TargetName' do
pod 'VMLocationManager', '~> 1.0.0'
end

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install

Sample code

Closure

Location update

var locationManager = LocationManager.sharedInstance
        locationManager.showVerboseMessage = true
        locationManager.autoUpdate = false
        locationManager.startUpdatingLocationWithCompletionHandler { (latitude, longitude, status, verboseMessage, error) -> () in
            
            println("lat:\(latitude) lon:\(longitude) status:\(status) error:\(error)")
            
            println(verboseMessage)
            
        }

Geocoding using Apple service

var locationManager = LocationManager.sharedInstance
        
locationManager.geocodeAddressString(address: "Apple Inc., Infinite Loop, Cupertino, CA  95014, United States") { (geocodeInfo,placemark,error) -> Void in
            
            if(error != nil){
                
                println(error)
            }else{
                
                println(geocodeInfo!)
            }
        }

Reverse Geocoding using Apple service

var locationManager = LocationManager.sharedInstance
            locationManager.reverseGeocodeLocationWithLatLon(latitude: 37.331789, longitude: -122.029620) { (reverseGecodeInfo,placemark,error) -> Void in
            
            if(error != nil){
                
                println(error)
            }else{
                
                println(reverseGecodeInfo!)
            }
            
        }

Geocoding using Google service

var locationManager = LocationManager.sharedInstance
   locationManager.geocodeUsingGoogleAddressString(address: "Apple Inc., Infinite Loop, Cupertino, CA  95014, United States") { (geocodeInfo,placemark,error) -> Void in
            
            if(error != nil){
                
                println(error)
            }else{
                
                println(geocodeInfo!)
            }
            
        }

Reverse Geocoding using Google service

var locationManager = LocationManager.sharedInstance
      locationManager.reverseGeocodeLocationUsingGoogleWithLatLon(latitude: 37.331789, longitude: -122.029620) { (reverseGecodeInfo,placemark,error) -> Void in
            
            if(error != nil){
                
                println(error)
            }else{
                
                println(reverseGecodeInfo!)
            }
        }

Delegate

Location update

*class ViewController: UIViewController ,LocationManagerDelegate{....*

override func viewDidLoad() {
    
    super.viewDidLoad()
    
    var locationManager = LocationManager.sharedInstance
    
    locationManager.delegate = self
    
    locationManager.startUpdatingLocation()
    
    locationManager.stopUpdatingLocation()
}

 func locationManagerStatus(status:NSString){
    
    println(status)
}


func locationManagerReceivedError(error:NSString){
    
    println(error)
    
}

func locationFoundGetAsString(latitude: NSString, longitude: NSString) {
   
}


func locationFound(latitude:Double, longitude:Double){
    
}

Verbose Message based on CLAuthorizationStatus

  • App is Authorized to use location services.

  • You have not yet made a choice with regards to this application.

  • This application is not authorized to use location services. Due to active restrictions on location services, the user cannot change this status, and may not have personally denied authorization.

  • You have explicitly denied authorization for this application, or location services are disabled in Settings.


Add Privacy - Location Usage Description and NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription in your plist

Roadmap

  • Compatiblity check for iOS7 & iOS8
  • iPhone4 and startMonitoringSignificantLocationChanges issue
