Create a Settings.bundle for your RubyMotion app. This allows your app to have a "global" settings entry in the Settings app.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
gem install motion-settings-bundle
Add a chunk of code into your project's
Rakefile like so:
require 'motion-settings-bundle' ::. do |app| # A text field. Allows configuration of a string. app.text "Name", key: "username", default: "Paul Atreides" app.text "E-mail", key: "email", keyboard: "EmailAddress", autocapitalization: "None" app.text "Password", key: "password", secure: true # A read-only text field. Use for showing a small chunk of text, maybe a version number app.title "Year of Birth", key: "yearOfBirth", default: "10,175 AG" # An on/off switch. Turn something on or off. Default is `false` (off). app.toggle "Kwisatz Haderach?", key: "superpowersEnabled", default: true # MultiValue, to choose from some item app.multivalue "Picture Resolution 1", key: "pictureResolution1", default: "1500", values: ["1500", "1200", "1000"] # MultiValue 2, with values and different titles (required when the values are numbers not string) app.multivalue "Picture Resolution 2", key: "pictureResolution2", default: 1500, values: [1500, 1200, 1000], titles: ["1500px", "1200px", "1000px"] # A slider, configure volume or something linear app.slider "Spice Level", key: "spiceLevel", default: 50, min: 1, max: 100 # Child pane to display licenses in app.child "Acknowledgements" do |ack| ack.child "AwesomeOSSLibrary" do |lic| lic.group "Copyright 2013 AwesomeOSSContributor" lic.group "More license text that is terribly formatted but fulfills legal requirements" end end end
Now just run
rake as normal!
This should now add a
Settings.bundle folder into your
resources directory. Make sure to commit it! If you ever change the data in the
Settings.setup block, it will be re-built on the next
rake run. You'll end up with something like this:
If you're wondering how to access this in code, it's pretty easy:
NSUserDefaults.standardUserDefaults["username"] # returns "Paul Atreides"
And so on. Just remember, the defaults aren't populated until your user actually opens the Settings app, so make sure to handle all of your setting entries being
This project really solely exists to avoid creating/editing the Settings.bundle in XCode. The specs for it so far have been based off mordaroso/rubymotion-settings-bundle. Please feel free to contribute more ways to generate settings!
- Add a custom label, "Settings for Blah"
- Don't re-create files every time
- Slider default level doesn't seem to work yet
I couldn't figure out how to test this automatically. Run
bundle to get the gems you need, and then
rake to generate a RubyMotion app in the iOS simulator, and then open the Settings app.
If you've added a setting it would be really nice if you could update
