## Installation
### Requirements
- iOS 9.0+ / macOS 10.11+
- Xcode 9+ (Swift 4)
- Git (preinstalled with Xcode Command Line Tools)
- Ruby (preinstalled with macOS)
- [CocoaPods 1.5.0][dep-cocoapods]
- [SwiftGen][dep-swiftgen]
It's highly recommended to use the Git and Ruby packages provided by [Homebrew][dep-brew].
### Building
Xcode7 must be used for pulling down pods in order to support older iOS 9.0:
- Download latest version of Xcode 7 from Apple
- Install Xcode 7 in Applications/xcode7
- `sudo xcode-select -switch /Applications/xcode7/`
- Clean all the pod cache from the computer
- `pod install` ... etc
- `sudo xcode-select -switch /Applications/`
### Testing
Download the app codebase locally:
$ git clone
Assuming you have a [working CocoaPods environment][dep-cocoapods], setting up the app workspace only requires installing the pod dependencies:
$ pod install
After that, open `PIA VPN.xcworkspace` in Xcode and run the `PIA VPN` target.
For the VPN to work properly, the app requires:
- _App Groups_ and _Keychain Sharing_ capabilities
- App IDs with _Packet Tunnel_ entitlements
both in the main app and the tunnel extension target.
### Hotspot Helper API
We use a special entitlement to participate in the process of joining Wi-Fi/hotspot networks (
You need to request this entitlement to Apple or remove the call to `configureHotspotHelper()` in `AppDelegate.swift` and adapt the entitlements file to your needs.
