How to build with Xcode

You need to install rustup with rust, as well as cargo-lipo.

$ git clone git@github.com:deltachat/deltachat-ios.git
$ cd deltachat-ios
$ git submodule update --init --recursive
# Make sure the correct rust version is installed
$ rustup toolchain install `cat deltachat-ios/libraries/deltachat-core-rust/rust-toolchain`
$ open deltachat-ios.xcworkspace # do not: open deltachat-ios.xcodeproj

This should open Xcode. Then make sure that at the top left in Xcode there is deltachat-ios selected as scheme (see screenshot below).


Now build and run - e.g. by pressing Cmd-r - or click on the triangle at the top:


If Xcode complains about missing header files (different mac versions may or may not install all headers), you can force-install them with the following command:

$ sudo installer -pkg /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/Packages/macOS_SDK_headers_for_macOS_10.14.pkg -target /
