Starting from version 3.24.0 of the SDK, you can integrate the Braze SDK using Carthage by including the following in your
1 binary "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Appboy/appboy-ios-sdk/master/appboy_ios_sdk_full.json"
You can integrate earlier versions of the SDK by including the following in your
1 github "Appboy/Appboy-iOS-SDK" "<BRAZE_IOS_SDK_VERSION>"
Make sure to replace
<BRAZE_IOS_SDK_VERSION> with the latest version of the Braze iOS SDK in “x.y.z” format. Release versions are available here.
For further instructions using Carthage, please refer to their user guide on Github.
Once you’ve synced the Braze SDK release artifacts (we support Carthage via a zip of release artifacts attached to our Github releases), integrate the
SDWebImage.framework into your project. Then, in your Application delegate do:
Add the following line of code to your
1 #import <Appboy-iOS-SDK/AppboyKit.h>
AppDelegate.m file, add the following snippet within your
1 2 3 [Appboy startWithApiKey:@"YOUR-API-KEY" inApplication:application withLaunchOptions:launchOptions];
If you are integrating the Braze SDK with CocoaPods or Carthage, add the following line of code to your
1 import Appboy_iOS_SDK
For more information about using Objective-C code in Swift projects, please see the Apple Developer Docs.
AppDelegate.swift, add following snippet to your
application(application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [NSObject: AnyObject]?) -> Bool:
1 Appboy.start(withApiKey: "YOUR-API-KEY", in:application, withLaunchOptions:launchOptions)
sharedInstance singleton will be nil before
startWithApiKey: is called, as that is a prerequisite to using any Braze functionality.
Be sure to update
YOUR-API-KEY with the correct value from your App Settings page.
Be sure to initialize Braze in your application’s main thread. Initializing asynchronously can lead to broken functionality.
If you want to use SDWebImage in your project along with the Braze SDK, you can install a thin version of the Braze Carthage framework. To do so, include the following lines in your Cartfile:
1 2 binary "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Appboy/appboy-ios-sdk/master/appboy_ios_sdk.json" github "SDWebImage/SDWebImage"
Core Only Integration
If you want to use the Core SDK without any UI components, you can install the core version of the Braze Carthage framework by including the following line in your Cartfile:
1 binary "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Appboy/appboy-ios-sdk/master/appboy_ios_sdk_core.json"
Specifying Your Custom Endpoint or Data Cluster
Your Braze representative should have already advised you of the correct endpoint.
Compile-time Endpoint Configuration (Recommended)
Note that as of December 2019, custom endpoints are no longer given out, if you have a pre-existing custom endpoint, you may continue to use it. For a list of our available endpoints, click here.
If given a pre-existing custom endpoint…
- Starting with Braze iOS SDK v3.0.2, you can set a custom endpoint using the
Info.plistfile. Add the Braze dictionary to your
Info.plistfile. Inside the
Brazedictionary, add the
Endpointstring subentry and set the value to your custom endpoint URLs authority (for example,
https://sdk.iad-01.braze.com). Note that prior to Braze iOS SDK v4.0.2, the dictionary key
Appboymust be used in place of
Runtime Endpoint Configuration
If given a pre-existing custom endpoint…
- Starting with Braze iOS SDK v3.17.0+, you can override set your endpoint via the
appboyOptionsparameter passed to
startWithApiKey:inApplication:withLaunchOptions:withAppboyOptions:. Set the value to your custom endpoint URLs authority (for example,
Support for setting endpoints at runtime using
ABKAppboyEndpointDelegate has been removed in Braze iOS SDK v3.17.0. If you already use
ABKAppboyEndpointDelegate, note that in Braze iOS SDK versions v3.14.1 to v3.16.0, any reference to
dev.appboy.com in your
getApiEndpoint() method must be replaced with a reference to
