            target.build_configurations.each do |config|
                config.build_settings['ENABLE_BITCODE'] = 'YES'
                config.build_settings['EXPANDED_CODE_SIGN_IDENTITY'] = ""
                config.build_settings['CODE_SIGNING_REQUIRED'] = "NO"

  1. Run pod update in terminal to retrieve all cocoapods dependencies and create xcworkspace
  2. Open the generated Xcode workspace and create the new plugin class.
  3. In the newly created class add the following import - import ZappAnalyticsPluginsSDK.
  4. The class should inherit from ZPAnalyticsProvider. Here is a reference of how the top part of the new class should look
 import Foundation
 import ZappAnalyticsPluginsSDK

 class MyAnalyticsPluginAdapter: ZPAnalyticsProvider {}
  1. Implement the specific code for your analytics provider by adding the functions described above in the protocol.
  2. Make sure to implement all event tracking methods as relevant (also for the optional functions if relevant)
  3. Add unit tests
Plugin preperation.
  1. Create a podspec file for your plugin and fill it.
  2. Create cocoapod dependency of your plugin in amd upload it.
Create manifest and upload to Zapp

Please go to the Zappifest Documentation and Zappifest API Documentation for more details.

  1. Install Zappifest
  2. Create manifest with Zappifest using tips. Note: in field class_name make sure that you will add proper class name. If you are using swift do not forget to add module name before class name. Example: ZappAnalyticsPluginGAtvOS.GoogleAnalyticsPluginAdapter
  3. Upload manifest to Zapp using Zappifest
