Overview

Super-simple environment configuration for iOS apps. Set environment variables that switch automagically based on build type or set an environment with one line of code.

Installation

Via CocoaPods
  • Add pod 'DBEnvironmentConfiguration' to your podfile
  • Run pod install
  • Import header (#import <DBEnvironmentConfiguration/DBEnvironmentConfiguration.h>)
Manual Installation
  • Add DBEnvironmentConfiguration folder to your project
  • Import header (#import "DBEnvironmentConfiguration")

Environment File

File Format

  • Supported formats include .json and .plist.
  • Default configuration file is environments.json
Example JSON file:
{
    "Development": {
        "base_url": "https://dev.mycompany.com",
        "api_version": "5"
    },
    "Staging": {
        "base_url": "https://stage.mycompany.com",
        "api_version": "3"
    },
    "Production": {
        "base_url": "https://mycompany.com",
        "api_version": "3"
    }
}

Example

[DBEnvironmentConfiguration setEnvironment:@"Staging"]; // Set Environment (Defaults to 'Development')
NSString *baseURL = [DBEnvironmentConfiguration valueForKey:@"base_url"]; // Done 

Environment Detection

DBEnvironmentConfiguration can detect the build type of the application. You can map these build types to environments so that the environments will switch automatcially.

Possible build types:

    DBBuildTypeUndetermined,
    DBBuildTypeSimulator,
    DBBuildTypeDebug,
    DBBuildTypeAdHoc,
    DBBuildTypeAppStore,
    DBBuildTypeEnterprise

You can map build types individually or as one NSDictionary *.

    // Individual mapping
    [DBEnvironmentConfiguration setEnvironment:@"Development" forBuildType:DBBuildTypeSimulator];

    // Map all environments at once
    [DBEnvironmentConfiguration setEnvironmentMapping:@{
                                                        [NSNumber numberWithInt:DBBuildTypeSimulator]     : @"Development",
                                                        [NSNumber numberWithInt:DBBuildTypeDebug]         : @"Development",
                                                        [NSNumber numberWithInt:DBBuildTypeAdHoc]         : @"Staging",
                                                        [NSNumber numberWithInt:DBBuildTypeAppStore]      : @"Production",
                                                        [NSNumber numberWithInt:DBBuildTypeEnterprise]    : @"Production"
                                                        }];

Setting the environment manually by calling setEnvironment: will turn off environment detection. You can also enable/disable environment detection by calling setEnvironmentDetection:.

Shorthand

DBEnvironmentConfiguration allows shorthand to get environment variables and to set the environment. To turn on the shorthand, define _DBEC_SHORTHAND_ before importing the header.

Turn on environment variable shorthand
    #define _DBEC_SHORTHAND_                    // Set before importing header
    #import <DBEnvironmentConfiguration/DBEnvironmentConfiguration.h> 

...

    SET_BUILD_ENVIRONMENT(@"Staging");          // Set the environment
    SET_ENVIRONMENT_MAPPING(@{@2:@"Staging"});  // Map environments
    NSString *baseURL = ENV(@"base_url");       // Get environment variables
