Cocoa Pods

πŸ“˜

Note

If you haven't used CocoaPods before, please read this guide first.

platform :ios, '12.0' 

source 'https://cdn.cocoapods.org/'

workspace 'App.xcworkspace'
use_frameworks!

target 'Target' do 
    pod 'BidMachine', '~> 2.7.0'
  
    # Additionally, you can specify the type of library to use:
    # pod 'BidMachine/Static', '~> 2.7.0'
    # pod 'BidMachine/Dynamic', '~> 2.7.0'
  
    project 'Project/Target.xcodeproj' 
end

Initialization

To initialize the SDK - you need to call the initialization method with your source id

BidMachineSdk.shared.initializeSdk("YOUR_SOURCE_ID")
[BidMachineSdk.shared initializeSdk:@"YOUR_SOURCE_ID"];

Status

Sdk status can be checked via method

_ = BidMachineSdk.shared.isInitialized
[BidMachineSdk.shared isInitialized];

Constants

_ = BidMachineSdk.sdkVersion
_ = BidMachineSdk.sdkName
_ = BidMachineSdk.partnerName
_ = BidMachineSdk.partnerVersion
NSString *version   = [BidMachineSdk sdkVersion];
NSString *name      = [BidMachineSdk sdkName];
NSString *partner   = [BidMachineSdk partnerName];
NSString *partnerV  = [BidMachineSdk partnerVersion];

Test mode + Logging mode

BidMachineSdk.shared.populate {
  $0.withTestMode(true)
      .withLoggingMode(true)
      .withBidLoggingMode(true)

πŸ“˜

CCPA String

SDK automatically retrieves CCPA string from UserDefaults. If you would like to pass CCPA string according to IAB standards, please add it in UserDefaults. More information here.

πŸ“˜

GPP

SDK automatically retrieves GPP from UserDefaults. If you would like to pass GPP according to IAB standards, please add it in UserDefaults. More information here and here

Bid token

With S2S integration, you will need a token that you need to transfer in the request. To get a token, you can use method:

 BidMachineSdk.shared.token(with: .banner) { token in }
[BidMachineSdk.shared tokenWith:BidMachinePlacementFormatBanner completion:^(NSString *token) {
            
}];

The full set of types can be viewed here

Mediation

If the request is involved in third-party mediation, you can use such methods to notify the SDK about the win or loss events:

//Where ad - is loaded bidmachine ad
//Mediation WIN ( ad )
BidMachineSdk.shared.notifyMediationWin(ad)
//Mediation LOSS ( winner, price, ad )
BidMachineSdk.shared.notifyMediationLoss("WINNER_NETWORK", 1.0, ad)
//Where ad - is loaded bidmachine ad
//Mediation WIN ( ad )
[BidMachineSdk.shared notifyMediationWin:ad];
//Mediation LOSS ( winner, price, ad )
[BidMachineSdk.shared notifyMediationLoss:@"WINNER_NETWORK" ecpm:1.0 ad:ad];
