Swift Package Manager Integration


Installing the iOS SDK via Swift Package Manager (SPM) automates the majority of the installation process for you. Before beginning this process please ensure that you are using Xcode 12 or greater.

Note that tvOS is not yet available via Swift Package Manager.

Step 1: Adding the dependency to your project

Open your project and navigate to your project’s settings. Select the tab named Swift Packages and click on the add button (+) at the bottom left.

Swift Package Manager: Menu 1

When importing SDK version 3.33.1 and above, enter the url of our iOS SDK repository (https://github.com/braze-inc/braze-ios-sdk) in the text field and click Next:

For versions 3.29.0 through 3.32.0, use the URL https://github.com/Appboy/Appboy-ios-sdk.

Swift Package Manager: Menu 2

On the next screen, select the SDK version and click Next.

Versions 3.29.0 and higher are compatible with Swift Package Manager.

Swift Package Manager: Menu 3

Select the package that best fits your needs and click Finish:

  • AppboyUI
    • Best suited if you plan to use UI components provided by Braze.
    • Includes AppboyKit automatically.
  • AppboyKit
    • Best suited if you don’t need to use any of the UI components provided by Braze (e.g. Content Cards, In-App Messages, etc.).
  • AppboyPushStory
    • Include this package if you have integrated Push Stories in your app. This is supported as of version 3.31.0.
    • In the dropdown under Add to Target, select your ContentExtension target instead of your main app’s target.

Make sure you select either AppboyKit or AppboyUI. Including both packages can lead to undesired behavior.

Step 2: Configuring your project

Next, navigate to your project build settings and add the -ObjC flag to the Other Linker Flags setting. Please note that this flag must be added and errors resolved in order to further integrate the SDK.

Step 3: Editing the target’s scheme

If you are using Xcode 12.4 or earlier, edit the scheme of the target including the Appboy package (Product > Scheme > Edit Scheme menu item):

  • Click the expand ▶︎ next to Build and select Post-actions. Press + and select New Run Script Action.
  • In the dropdown next to Provide build settings from, select your app’s target.
  • Copy this script into the open field:
    # iOS
    bash "$BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR/Appboy_iOS_SDK_AppboyKit.bundle/Appboy.bundle/appboy-spm-cleanup.sh"
    # macOS (if applicable)
    bash "$BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR/Appboy_iOS_SDK_AppboyKit.bundle/Contents/Resources/Appboy.bundle/appboy-spm-cleanup.sh"
