How to work with Charles proxy server

In this post, I am going to share a technique which will help you in debugging your mobile application code effortlessly even if your server is down.

To set up the Charles server, follow the below steps:
          ·   Install the free Charles software from https://www.charlesproxy.com/download/
·   Open Charles, go to Tools -> Map local
·   In map local window/popup, click add. Add the relevant details like Host, Port(8080), Path, Query of URL.
·   Under "map to" option:- Select the local JSON file
·   Click done and a popup will look like this: (location will have the URL string, the local path will have the path of JSON file)


·   Now go to Tools - Rewrite
·   In the rewrite popup, Select the "Enable rewrite option" and add the previous URL here
·   Add the following rewrite rule


·   Click ok and apply all the settings.
·   Now run the application in simulator and API's response will be read from given local JSON file.

If you are not able to read the data from local json file, then install the certificates from following path:-

1. Reset your simulator
2. In Charles menu, Help > SSL Proxying, and select Install Charles Root Certificate in iOS Simulators
3. Restart your simulator

Vector graphics in iOS

In past, designers had to create multiple versions of the same asset (1x, 2x, 3x) to satisfy multiple screen sizes. Using vector assets can save you time because you only have to generate the asset once. You just need an.xcassets file in your project for storing your images. In there, you can declare image sets to be “Vectors”.
A vector file contains a lot of metadata of an asset that tells the system how to render it's contents, independent of the screen's resolution. This also means that whenever we get larger screen resolutions, Xcode will be able to scale up your images from your already existing vector PDF for you, giving you automatic support for future devices for free.

Steps:-
Select “New Image Set” in your XCAsset.Select the Attributes Inspector in Utilities panel.Under the types drop-down menu, select "Vector"Drag and drop your vector PDFUse the Xcode image catalog image set as you would with any other image. For instance, calling --imageNamed: in code, and pa…

Return multiple values from a function in objective C

We can return tuples in swift as follows:-

func getData()->(Int,Int,Int){//...code herereturn( hour, minute, second)}You can't do that in objective-c. Best option is using parameters by reference. Something like this.

Disabling print for Production In Swift Project

You'll need to set up a compiler flag to use the Swift preprocessor - go to the Swift Compiler - Custom Flags section of Build Settings to set up a -D DEBUG flag:



Then in your code you can define a DLog() function and only print your message if the DEBUG flag is set:
func DLog(message: String, function: String = __FUNCTION__) { #if DEBUG     println("\(function): \(message)") #endif }
