GetSocial Configuration File Reference


GetSocial SDK uses getsocial.json file for configuration. This file is created automatically if GetSocial Gradle Plugin or iOS Installer script is used. If you decide to do a manual integration, you need to place the file into:

  1. On Android put it into your app’s root folder, beside your top-level build.gradle file
  2. On iOS put it into your app’s root folder, and make sure it is included in Copy Bundle Resources build phase.
