I will show you all the source code of released iOS application!


This time, I thought about publishing the source code of the application for the following reasons.

  • I want many people to see the application I made.
  • I want to hear opinions of various people.
  • I would like to help those who make apps by sharing code.

I hope this article will be useful to everyone 😃

Introduction of the application

Innovy (Innovy).
It is a news application for 20s to 30s (mainly men) who are setting up antennas for gathering information on latest services and technologies.
※ I made the name that imagined an innovator (innovator).

Moreover, because there is a news read-out function, you can also check news while walking.

Firebase plist, API key for API with limit of number of times etc. are masked, so some are not displayed.
If you contact us separately, we will pass items that are masked 🙃
* However, I will limit it to those who are clear on their identity (on Facebook etc.).

Architecture introduction

Innovy adopts MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel) as the architectural pattern?

For example, when the user performs the operation of reacquiring the latest news on the news list screen (pulls the screen upward), it moves as follows.
* Consider NewsListViewController in code asView, NewsListViewModel asViewModel and NewsListModel asModel.


①. View detects? Update operation by user
②. View requests update process toViewModel
ViewModel askedModel to acquire news list
④. Model uses the news list acquisition API to acquire the latest news
⑤. Model notifiesViewModel of completion of news acquisition
⑥. Create data for View display based on the news listViewModel obtained from Model
⑦. ViewModel notifiesView of completion of data creation
⑧. View updates screen based onViewModel information

So the latest news information is reflected in the application 😉
