Backend

The backend of this template is DBase, so you have to install it on your own VPS server (AWS Lightsail strongly recommended.
After performing the configurations mentioned below, you will run the app and see no content, so Sign Up with a test user in order to create a test account and start testing the app.

Requirements

The latest official version of Xcode – Beta versions of an IDE usually never work 100% properly, and the code of this app has been written using the latest official version of Xcode and you can download it from the Mac App Store. You must use it and avoid Betas.

An Apple Mac computer, updated to its latest OS version – It’s always good to keep your macOS up to date, technology keeps growing and I follow its changes, as well as updating my templates every time a new OS gets released.

An Apple Developer Account with an active iOS Development Program – This is needed for you to publish apps on the iTunes App Store. You can still edit this template on code without that account, but you won’t be able to run it on your real iOS device since you’ll need a Team ID.

Basic knowledge of Xcode and Swift language – You don’t need to be a skilled or professional developer, anyway it’s recommended to have at least the basic knowledge of what you’re dealing with, in order to be able to customize this template and publish your applications on the App Store.

DBase API – Host DBase into your own VPS server (AWS Lightsail is strongly recommended)

An active AdMob account – Unless you want to remove ads in this app, you need to sign up for an AdMob account to display them.

A real device to test the app before submitting it to the App Store – iOS Simulators may fail during tests, they are not reliable as a real device is, so I strongly recommend you to always run this application on a real phone/tablet. This is also suggested by Apple’s official Guidelines.

Change Log

Feb 8, 2022

- Due to the upcoming Apple terms about Privacy, I've added a button to completely delete your account in the 'Account' controller in Storyboard, and its relative code in the 'Account.swift' file 

Jan 28, 2022

- Updated to XCode 13.2.1
- Changed backend and SDK to the DBase API -> https://xserverapp.gumroad.com/l/soPKn

/* IF THIS IS AN UPDATE FOR YOU: This new backend is an evolved version of the previous one, so you can backup your current JSON files and 'uploads' folder, install DBase in your VPS server, and upload those files  **
