Business Logic CLI
  • Bugfix: User.socialIdentity properties were not public
  • Bugfix: User custom type was not properly loaded after a relaunch
  • Improvement: Client class now have a new method ping() to test if the client was initialized correctly.
Kinvey.sharedClient.ping() { (result: Result<EnvironmentInfo, Swift.Error>) in
    switch result {
    case .success(let envInfo):
        //succeed
    case .failure(let error):
        //failed
    }
}
  • Improvement: DataStore.group() is a set of new methods that allows group / aggregation functions. You can write your own reduce function using JavaScript or use pre-defined functions like count, sum, avg (average), min (minimum) and max (maximum).
dataStore.group(keys: ["country"], avg: "age") { (result: Result<[AggregationAvgResult<Person, Int>], Swift.Error>) in
    switch result {
    case .success(let array):
        //succeed
    case .failure(let error):
        //failed
    }
}
  • Improvement: a new method User.refresh() will reload the user's data. Also applies for Client.activeUser which will refresh and persist the new user's data.
Kinvey.sharedClient.activeUser?.refresh() { result in
    switch result {
    case .success:
        //succeed
    case .failure(let error):
        //failed
    }
}
  • Improvement: a new pattern for all completionHandlers in the library was introduced. All methods containing completionHandlers has now overloaded versions which returns a Result<SuccessType, FailureType> instance where you can use a switch statement to figure if the call succeed (case .success(let successObject):) or failed (case .failure(let error):)

  • Bugfix: User.lookup() now returns the correct User type if a custom user type was set.

  • Breaking Change: User.destroy(), User.sendEmailConfirmation(), User.resetPassword() and User.forgotUsername() were changed to have the completionHandler block following the Result enumeration pattern described above.

user.sendEmailConfirmation() { result in
    switch result {
    case .success:
        //succeed
    case .failure:
        //failed
    }

  • Improvement: add support for geolocation queries. You should now use GeoPoint class to store geolocation coordinates (latitude, longitude)
class Vehicle: Entity {

    dynamic var name: String?
    dynamic var geolocation: GeoPoint?

    override class func collectionName() -> String {
        return "Vehicle"
    }

    override func propertyMapping(_ map: Map) {
        super.propertyMapping(map)

        name <- ("name", map["name"])
        geolocation <- ("geolocation", map["geolocation"])
    }
}

let deliveryTruck = Person()
deliveryTruck.name = "Package Delivery Truck"
deliveryTruck.geolocation = GeoPoint(latitude: 42.3133521, longitude: -71.1271963)
  • Improvement: add support for mapping list of String, Int, Float, Double and Bool

        return "Book"
    }

    override func propertyMapping(_ map: Map) {
        super.propertyMapping(map)

        title <- ("title", map["title"])

Kinvey.sharedClient.push.registerForNotifications { granted, error in
    if granted {
        //registered successfully
    } else {
        //failed to register
    }
}
  • Bug fix: User object nil after MIC login succeeds
  • Improvement: Kinvey.Error now implements CustomStringConvertible and CustomDebugStringConvertible which means you can now print() and debugPrint() errors. Also, errors now have the httpResponse and data properties, which allows you to check http status codes and the response body.

  • Bug fix: Fix for CocoaPods and Carthage.
  • Bug fix: Temporary _ids values are being sent to the backend.
  • Bug fix: If a migration schema block is not provided, the local cache is deleted on a schema mismatch between versions.

Also errors now also have the httpResponse and data properties allowing you to check things like http status codes and the response body for example.
  • Change help text to help disambiguate argument order.
  • Improvement: adding custom fields during sign up.
client.userType = MyUser.self

let user = MyUser()
user.foo = "bar"
User.signup(user: user) { user, error in
    if let user = user {
        //success
    } else {
        //failure
    }
}
  • Bug fix: updated the following request headers -
    • User-Agent
    • X-Kinvey-Client-App-Version
    • X-Kinvey-Device-Information
  • Enhancement: New API added for the developer to set an app version. This value is sent to the backend as the X-Kinvey-Client-App-Version request header.
Kinvey.sharedClient.clientAppVersion = "1.0.0"
  • Bug fix: migration schema not being executed is now fixed. If you made changes to your entity classes, make sure that you increase the schema version and provide a migration block as shown below:
// Version 1
class Person: Entity {

    dynamic var firstName: String?
    dynamic var lastName: String?

    override class func collectionName() -> String {
        return "Person"
    }

    override func propertyMapping(_ map: Map) {
        super.propertyMapping(map)

        firstName <- map["firstName"]
        lastName <- map["lastName"]
    }

}

// Version 2
class Person: Entity {

    dynamic var fullName: String?

    override class func collectionName() -> String {
        return "Person"
    }

    override func propertyMapping(_ map: Map) {
        super.propertyMapping(map)

        fullName <- map["fullName"]
    }

}

// Migrating your data during client initialization
Kinvey.sharedClient.initialize(appKey: "<#appKey#>", appSecret: "<#appSecret#>", schemaVersion: 2) { migration, oldSchemaVersion in
    migration.execute(Person.self) { (oldEntity) in
        var newEntity = oldEntity
        if oldSchemaVersion < 2 {
            newEntity["fullName"] = "\(oldEntity["firstName"]!) \(oldEntity["lastName"]!)"
            newEntity.removeValue(forKey: "firstName")
            newEntity.removeValue(forKey: "lastName")
        }

        return newEntity
    }
}
  • Same changes presented in the 3.3.3 version, but for projects using Swift 2.3

    if let user = user {
        self.userIdLabel.text = user.userId
    }
    self.completionHandler?(user, error)
}

If you are using the default .safari option for the micUserInterface, remember to add the code below in your app delegate.

func application(_ app: UIApplication, open url: URL, options: [UIApplicationOpenURLOptionsKey : Any] = [:]) -> Bool {
    if User.login(redirectURI: URL(string: "<#myRedirectURL://#>")!, micURL: url) {
        return true
    }

    return false
}
