Installation and initialization

The AppMetrica library supports several platforms:

Step 1. The library can work with the following dependency managers:

The library supports static and dynamic frameworks for CocoaPods. To enable the library, add the dependency to the project Podfile (example for integrating a static framework):

  • Static framework

    pod 'YandexMobileMetrica', '3.3.0'
  • Dynamic framework

    pod 'YandexMobileMetrica/Dynamic', '3.3.0'
Note. If the Podfile has the line use_frameworks!, we recommend using the dynamic framework.
If you don't use these dependency managers

To enable the library, follow these steps:

  1. Download the AppMetrica library.
  2. Add YandexMobileMetrica.framework to the project.
  3. Add the following dependencies: 'SystemConfiguration', 'UIKit', 'Foundation', 'CoreTelephony', 'CoreLocation', 'CoreGraphics', 'AdSupport', 'z', 'sqlite3', 'Security', 'c++', 'SafariServices' (with the Optional setting).
  4. Add -ObjC to Other Linker Flags.

Step 2. Initialize the library in the application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: method of your UIApplicationDelegate:

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions
    YMMYandexMetricaConfiguration *configuration = [[YMMYandexMetricaConfiguration alloc] initWithApiKey:API_key];
    [YMMYandexMetrica activateWithConfiguration:configuration];
What is the API key?

The API key is a unique application identifier that is issued in the AppMetrica web interface during app registration. Make sure you have entered it correctly.

AppMetrica allows tracking pre-installed apps. To use this feature, you must initialize the library with the extended configuration.

Note. Requirements: deployment target 8.0 and higher.
