Load a Ready Player Me avatar in your iOS app in less than 5 minutes.
- This quickstart tutorial assumes you are working on a mac, as this is required to run and build iOS apps.
- Download and install Xcode to your mac.
Go to the Ready Player Me GitHub organization and pull down the iOS swift example project to your local machine. You can find this example repository here: https://github.com/readyplayerme/Example-iOS-Swift
Open the project in Xcode and run it using the play button as shown below.
Upon doing the above, your project should start in the iOS emulator, and you will have a working example of an iOS app using the avatar creator web view.
Now that the project is working locally for you, you can ensure that the avatars created in the project will be associated to your Ready Player Me application by including your subdomain in the project. First, sign in (or sign up) to Studio (Developer Dashboard), navigate to details page of the application you want to use, and then copy the subdomain value at the top of the page. Once you have your subdomain, go back to your iOS project and then navigate to the AvatarCreatorSettings Swift file to replace the 'demo' value with your subdomain.
You now have a working native iOS app with a working implementation of the Ready Player Me avatar creator that will create avatars linked to your Ready Player Me application. At this point you can go in any direction you think makes sense for your project:
