Aeris iOS Framework
The Aeris iOS Framework allows a developer to quickly and easily add weather content and functionality to their iOS applications quickly and easily without having to code anything themselves. It utilizes the Aeris API backend for data loading and is built on top of an object mapping system that efficiently loads requested weather content into third-party iOS applications, greatly reducing the amount of code and development needed on the developer end.
There are three frameworks available for Aeris iOS, each serving a different function and prevents you from having to include libraries your custom application does not use.
|Aeris.framework||(required) This is the core framework that is required for any third-party implementation and serves as the foundation for accessing all Aeris API content. This framework will only provide access to textual products from the API, not graphics or imagery.
Review the Aeris.framework developer reference documentation.
|AerisUI.embeddedframework||(optional) This framework serves as a supplement to the core Aeris.framework as it provides default weather icons and general weather views that can quickly and easily be added to your own custom views.
Review the AerisUI.framework developer reference documentation.
|AerisMap.embeddedframework||(optional) The mapping framework provides the ability to add a fully functional interactive weather map into your application, including map overlays (e.g., radar, satellite) and point data (e.g., observations, storm reports). All three Aeris iOS frameworks are required to use the interactive mapping feature in your own applications.
