The Box iOS SDK in Objective-C (prior to v3.0.0) has been moved from the main branch to the objective-c-maintenance branch. Going forward, the main branch will contain the iOS SDK in Swift, starting with v3.0.0.

Box iOS SDK

Requirements

  • iOS 11.0+ / Mac OS X 10.13+ / tvOS 11.0+ / watchOS 4.0+
  • Xcode 10.0+

Installing the SDK

git "https://github.com/box/box-ios-sdk.git" ~> 5.0

Step 2: Update dependencies

$ carthage update --use-xcframeworks --platform iOS

Step 3: Drag the built xcframework from Carthage/Build into your project.

For more detailed instructions, please see the official documentation for Carthage.

CocoaPods

The process should look like below:

Import Package

Adding BoxSDK as a Dependency

For detailed instructions, please see the official documentation for SPM.

Getting Started

To get started with the SDK, get a Developer Token from the Configuration page of your app in the Box Developer Console. You can use this token to make test calls for your own Box account.

import BoxSDK

let client = BoxSDK.getClient(token: "YOUR_DEVELOPER_TOKEN")
client.users.getCurrentUser() { result in
    switch result {
    case let .error(error):
        print("Error: \(error)")
    case let .success(user):
        print("\(user.name) (\(user.login)) is logged in")
    }
}

The usage docs that show how to make calls to the Box API with the SDK can be found here.

The Jazzy docs that show class, method, variable, etc definitions can be found here.

Sample Apps

OAuth2 Sample App

A sample app using OAuth2 Authentication can be found in the repository here. This app demonstrates how to use the SDK to make calls, and can be run directly by entering your own credentials to log in.

To execute the sample app:

Step 1: Run carthage

$ cd SampleApps/OAuth2SampleApp
$ carthage update --use-xcframeworks --platform iOS

Step 2: Open Xcode Project File

$ open OAuth2SampleApp.xcodeproj

Step 3: Insert your client ID and client secret

First, find your OAuth2 app's client ID and secret from the Box Developer Console. Then, add these values to the sample app in the Constants.swift file in the sample app:

static let clientId = "YOUR CLIENT ID GOES HERE"
static let clientSecret = "YOUR CLIENT SECRET GOES HERE"

Step 4: Set redirect URL

Using the same client ID from the previous step, set the redirect URL for your application in the Box Developer Console to boxsdk-<<YOUR CLIENT ID>>://boxsdkoauth2redirect, where <<YOUR CLIENT ID>> is replaced with your client ID. For example, if your client ID were vvxff7v61xi7gqveejo8jh9d2z9xhox5 the redirect URL should be boxsdk-vvxff7v61xi7gqveejo8jh9d2z9xhox5://boxsdkoauth2redirect

Step 5: Run the sample app

JWT Auth Sample App

A sample app using JWT Authentication can be found in the repository here. This app demonstrates how to set up JWT authentication with a remote authorization service, and will not run until you provide the code to retrieve tokens.

To execute the sample app:

Step 1: Run carthage

$ cd SampleApps/JWTSampleApp
$ carthage update --use-xcframeworks --platform iOS

Step 2: Open Xcode Project File

$ open JWTSampleApp.xcodeproj

Step 3: Insert your client ID and client secret

First, find your OAuth2 app's client ID and secret from the Box Developer Console. Then, add these values to the sample app in the Constants.swift file in the sample app:

static let clientId = "YOUR CLIENT ID GOES HERE"
static let clientSecret = "YOUR CLIENT SECRET GOES HERE"

Step 4: Add code for retrieving access tokens

In the ViewController.swift file in the sample app, edit the obtainJWTTokenFromExternalSources() method:

func obtainJWTTokenFromExternalSources() -> DelegatedAuthClosure {
    return { uniqueID, completion in
        #error("Obtain a JWT Token from your own service or a Developer Token for your app in the Box Developer Console at https://app.box.com/developers/console and return it in the completion.")
        // The code below is an example implementation of the delegate function
        // Please provide your own implementation
        
        // ...
    }
}

Step 5: Run the sample app

Versions

We use a modified version of Semantic Versioning for all changes. See version strategy for details which is effective from 30 July 2022.

Supported Version

Only the current MAJOR version of SDK is supported. New features, functionality, bug fixes, and security updates will only be added to the current MAJOR version.

A current release is on the leading edge of our SDK development, and is intended for customers who are in active development and want the latest and greatest features. Instead of stating a release date for a new feature, we set a fixed minor or patch release cadence of maximum 2-3 months (while we may release more often). At the same time, there is no schedule for major or breaking release. Instead, we will communicate one quarter in advance the upcoming breaking change to allow customers to plan for the upgrade. We always recommend that all users run the latest available minor release for whatever major version is in use. We highly recommend upgrading to the latest SDK major release at the earliest convenient time and before the EOL date.

Version schedule

Version Supported Environments State First Release EOL/Terminated
5 iOS 11.0+ / Mac OS X 10.13+ / tvOS 11.0+ / watchOS 4.0+ Supported 28 Oct 2021 TBD
4 EOL 13 Feb 2020 28 Oct 2021
3 EOL 20 Nov 2019 13 Feb 2020
