RemoteConfig

Easy remote configuration for iOS with Google Spreadsheet.

[RMTConfig startWithURL:@"https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1NanRTook1EeXpfIbVNR-tmGSo9h-2LSsdxJQE3n7NYM/pub?gid=0&single=true&output=csv"];

// Then,

RMTString(@"SomeKey", @"SomeDefault");
  // => @"SomeValue" from retrieved configuration

RMTInt(@"SomeNotFoundKey", 2);
  // => 2 from specified default value

// It caches retrieved value and refreshes them when calling every `- startWithURL:`.

1. Setup

Specify the URL to retrieve and initialize RMTConfig at the -application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:. The retrieved values are stored and cached in NSUserDefaults.

[RMTConfig startWithURL:@"https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1NanRTook1EeXpfIbVNR-tmGSo9h-2LSsdxJQE3n7NYM/pub?gid=0&single=true&output=csv"];

2. Getting Values

You can get values with simple static functions. They return given default value when 1.RMTConfig has not retrieved the URL yet. 2.The value for key does not exist.

RMTString(@"SomeKey", @"SomeDefault"); // => @"SomeValue" from retrieved configuration

RMTInt(@"SomeNotFoundKey", 2); // => 2 from specified default value 

RMTBool(@"FooBar", NO); // => YES from retrieved configuration

You can simply use them with if statement to work them more programmatically.

if (RMTBool(@"ShouldDoSomething", NO)) {
    DoSomething();
}

It allows you to switch functions or do some tests without updating the app. Yay!

3. Editing Values

The format of spreadsheets is simple. Put keys on the first column and put values on the second column. It avoids keys start with $.

You should obtain and specify the .csv URL from spreadsheets. To obtain .csv URL, click File -> Publish to the Web then pull down the format selection to Comma-separated values (.csv) as follows.

Then you will obtain an URL as follows.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1NanRTook1EeXpfIbVNR-tmGSo9h-2LSsdxJQE3n7NYM/pub?output=csv

Version Specific Values

You can set a value for key v3.3.0=SomeKey to overwrite a value for SomeKey in case of running app version is v3.3.0.

You can use this feature as follows.

Message, Hello
v1.0.0=Message, We introduced special features in this version!
v2.0.0=Message, We introduced some incredible features in this version!

4. Debugging

For debugging purpose, you can force returning value by calling simple api.

// This method force `RMTString()` or related methods to return "ForcedValue"
// Do nothing while production build.
[RMTConfig debug_forceValueForKey:@"SomeKey" withString:@"ForcedValue"];

RMTString(@"SomeKey");
  // => @"ForcedValue"

[RMTConfig debug_forceValueForKey:@"SomeBoolKey" withBool:YES];
RMTBool(@"SomeBoolKey", NO); // => YES!

For helping debug, RMTConfig emits some NSLogs while DEBUG.

(Optional) Bring your own CSV

You can bring your own .csv URL. The format is as follows.

SomeKey, SomeValue
FooBar, 2
TheAnswerOfEveryThing, 42
