SharePoint from iOS – a new library – SPMobile
Cut to the chase: github is here: https://github.com/jimmywim/SPMobile
I have spent a bit of time recently tidying up and expanding the code possibilities with my iOS library – SPRESTApi.
The changes have allowed me to extend it so it’s no longer just a REST API helper, but can be used to called the ASMX web services in SharePoint. This effectively lets it work with any version since SharePoint 2007.
And in order to enable it to work with all the way back to 2007, I’ve extended the authentication mechanism to be able to log in using Forms Based Authentication.
I have therefore refactored the code quite a lot and created a new Github repository – available here: https://github.com/jimmywim/SPMobile (I’ve also learnt a fair bit more about Git since my last try too, now quite enjoying it! :D)
Code samples of authenticating into FBA and executing web service requests are all on the README on the Github site.
With reference to my last blog post, this is confirmation that I’m no longer maintaining SPRESTApi, but I’ll keep it there for future reference (and for historical purposes, so I can laugh at my poor learning of git in the future).
