Riot/iOS is an iOS Matrix client.

It is based on MatrixKit (https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-ios-kit) and MatrixSDK (https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-ios-sdk).

You can build the app from source as per below:

Build instructions

Before opening the Riot Xcode workspace, you need to build it with the CocoaPods command:

$ cd Riot
$ pod install

This will load all dependencies for the Riot source code, including MatrixKit and MatrixSDK. You will need an recent and updated (pod update) install of CocoaPods.

Then, open Riot.xcworkspace with Xcode

$ open Riot.xcworkspace


Uncomment the right definitions of $matrixKitVersion for the version you want to develop and build against. For example, if you are trying to build the develop branch, uncomment $matrixKitVersion = 'develop' and make sure the more specific MatrixKit version is commented out. Once you are done editing the Podfile, run pod install.

You may need to change the bundle identifier and app group identifier to be unique to get Xcode to build the app. Make sure to change the application group identifier everywhere by running a search for group.im.vector and changing every spot that identifier is used to your new identifier.
