Tealium iOS Library – 4.1.11 & 4.1.11c


Tealium-Compact This library has been replaced by version 5.x iOS and tvOS repositories. This version can still be used with Tealium services but no further development or bug fixes planned.


Brief

The frameworks included allow the native tagging of a mobile application once and then configuration of third-party analytic services remotely through Tealium IQ; all without needing to recode and redeploy an app for every update to these services.

First time implementations should read the How Tealium Works wiki page for a brief overview of how Tealium’s SDK differs from conventional analytic SDKs. For any additional information, consult the wiki home page.

The remainder of this document provides quick install instructions for implementing the less memory intensive Compact library.

Requirements

Quick Start

This guide presumes you have already created an iOS app using Xcode. Follow the below steps to add Tealium’s Compact library to it. Discussion on which version is ultimately best for you can be found in the What Next section.

1. Clone/Copy Library

onto your dev machine by clicking on the Clone to Desktop or Download ZIP buttons on the main repo page.

Tealium-Compact

2. Add To Project

2a. From the ios-library/TealiumCompact folder, drag & drop the TealiumLibrary.framework(/tealiumcompact/tealiumlibrary.framework) into your Xcode project’s Navigation window.

Tealium-Compact

2b. Click "Finish" in the resulting dialog box.

Tealium-Compact

3. Link Frameworks

Link the following Apple frameworks to your project:

  • SystemConfiguration
  • CoreTelephony (optional)

Your project-target-General tab should now look similar to:

Tealium-Compact

4. Add Linker Flags

Add the "-ObjC" linker flag to your project’s Target-Build Settings:

Tealium-Compact

5o. Import and Init Objective-C

5o1. Import the library into your project’s .pch file into the following block:

#ifdef __OBJC__
    //...

    #import <TealiumLibrary/Tealium.h>
#endif

5o2. Init the library in your appDelegate.m class:

- (void)applicationDidFinishLaunching:(UIApplication *)application
{
    //...

    [Tealium initSharedInstance:@"tealiummobile" profile:@"demo" target:@"dev"];

    // (!) Don't forget to replace "tealiummobile", "demo" and "dev" with your own account-profile-target settings before creating your production build.

}

5s. Import and Init Swift

5s1. Import Tealium-bridging-header.h

Tealium-Compact

5s2. Update Project’s Build Settings: Swift Compiler – Code Generation:

  • Install objective-C Header: Yes
  • Objective-C Bridging Header: (path to the bridging-header)

Tealium-Compact

5s3. Add Init statement:

Tealium.initSharedInstance("tealiummobile", profile: "demo", target: "dev", options:TealiumOptions.TLNone, globalCustomData: nil)

Tealium-Compact

6. Compile and Run

Your app is now ready to compile and run. In the console output you should see a variation of:

6. Dispatch Verification

The two recommended methods for dispatch verification are:

  • AudienceStream Live Events
  • Vendor Dashboard

AudienceStream live events provides real time visualization of dispatched data if the Tealium DataCloud Tag has been added the same TIQ account-profile used to init the library:

Tealium-Compact

An analytic vendor with real time processing, such as Google Analytics), can also be used to verify dispatches if the data sources have been properly mapped to the target vendors’ variables.

Note: vendors without real-time processing may take up to several hours to update their reporting.

What Next

Now that you’ve successfully integrated the library, you should now determine if the Compact or Full Library versions best fit your needs. Below are the key differences:

Compact Full
Library Compile Size ~600 KB ~900 KB
Initialization Time +<1 ms +<1 ms
Runtime Memory Usage +3.3 MB +5.0 MB
Custom Data Tracking Yes Yes
Device Data Tracking Yes Yes
Lifecycle Tracking Yes Yes
Offline Tracking Yes Yes
Tag Bridge Yes Yes
Timestamp Tracking Yes Yes
AudienceStream Trace No Yes
Mobile Companion No Yes
UI Autotracking No Yes
Video Tracking No Yes

(A) Continue with the Compact version, add any needed additional tracking calls for events or view appearances.

(B) Switch to the Full version, see our Basic Implementation Guide, paying attention to the additional setup requirements.
