To integrate your iOS project with Netcore CE iOS SDK, follow these steps


iOS Project Prerequisite:

  • Support iOS version 10 and above
  • Your project must have been integrated with CocoaPods. If you do not have Cocoapods installed already, follow these instructions on the Cocoapods website to install it.

Step 1: Adding SDK dependency - CocoaPods

  1. In the Podfile add the Smartech-iOS-SDK as a dependency.
pod 'Smartech-iOS-SDK', '~> <<base_sdk_ios_version>>'
  1. Run the following command to update the added pod in your Podfile.
pod install

Once your installation is complete, you will have to open the workspace file (YOUR-PROJECT-NAME.xcworkspace) that is created.

Step 2: Initialize Netcore CE SDK

  1. Import Netcore CE SDK in AppDelegate class.
#import <Smartech/Smartech.h>
import Smartech
  1. Call a method to initialize CEE SDK in the didFinishLaunchingWithOptions method of the AppDelegate class
- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {
    [[Smartech sharedInstance] initSDKWithDelegate:(id)self withLaunchOptions:launchOptions];
    return YES;
func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions:[UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {
   Smartech.sharedInstance().initSDK(with: self, withLaunchOptions: launchOptions)
  return true
  1. Configure Apps Info.plist with SmartechKeys

You need to add a key named SmartechKeys with the type Dictionary. Add the following keys and values with their types to the SmartechKeys

KeyData typeDescription
SmartechAppGroupStringThe app group that is selected in capabilities section. It is used to share data between App and Extensions.
SmartechAppIdStringThe app id received from Smartech panel under assets section.

SmartechUseAdvIdBooleanThis key decides whether to use ADID (Advertising Id) or not. Set value as true/false as per the requirement.

You can paste the following snippet in Info.plist of your app and set the appropriate values for the keys.
