SRReport

SRReport is a small library which make easy for your testers to report bugs. Shake the iDevice, and they will send:

  • a screenshot of the current view
  • the logs of the current session
  • the crash report if a crash has been reported
  • the dumped view hierarchy

Go to our website to get more information

Installation

If you use Cocoapods, add the ShakeReport pod to your Podfile.

OR

Add those frameworks to your target:

  • QuartzCore
  • MessageUI
  • CoreVideo
  • CoreMedia
  • AVFoundation
  • AssetsLibrary

Copy the library folder in your project.

Include SRReporter.h

Then, copy this line to start the reporter:

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application 
        didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions
{

[[SRReporter reporter] startListener]; //this line starts the reporter return YES; }

Usage

Shake the iDevice when you want to report something. A Mail Composer view will appear with all the information that will be send. The tester can add some explanation, and change the recipient of the email.

Configurations

Where should you start the listener ?

Ideally, you want to start the listen when the application becomes active, and stop it when it enters in background:

- (void)applicationDidBecomeActive:(UIApplication *)application
{
        [[SRReporter reporter] startListener];
}

- (void)applicationDidEnterBackground:(UIApplication *)application
{
        [[SRReporter reporter] stopListener];
}

Without Screen Capture

You can setup the default email address that should receive the reports:

SRReporter *reporter = [SRReporter reporter];
[reporter setDefaultEmailAddress:@"templier.jeremy@gmail.com"];
[reporter startListener];

With Screen Capture

You basically have 2 options. The first one is to record the entire session: #include "SRVideoReporter.h"

SRVideoReporter *reporter = [SRVideoReporter reporter];
NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:@"http://localhost:3000"];
[reporter setApplicationToken:@"token_of_the_application"];
[reporter startListenerConnectedToBackendURL:url];
[reporter startScreenRecorder];

But be careful, the entire video will be recorded on the user's device. That's why we recommend you to set a max duration for the video. To do so, you just have to replace the last line of the previous example by:

// replace [reporter startScreenRecorder]; by
[reporter startScreenRecorderWithMaxDurationPerVideo:30]; //max duration = 30 sec

Additional Information

If you need to add custom information to the reports sent by email, you can do it!

[reporter setCustomInformationBlock:^NSString *{
    return [NSString stringWithFormat:@"Application: Sample Application, User: Jayztemplier, Device Name: %@", [[UIDevice currentDevice] name]];
}];

The block has to return a string which will be inserted in the additionalInformation.log file.

Use it with a Backend

You can also use Shake Report with a backend. And guess what!? It's open source too! https://github.com/jayztemplier/ShakeReportServer

To send the reports to the server, setup the listener like that:

SRReporter *reporter = [SRReporter reporter];
// Send data to a Server instead of displaying the mail composer
NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:@"http://localhost:3000/reports.json"];
[reporter startListenerConnectedToBackendURL:url];

If you backend requires to provide an application token, you have to setup the reporter:

[reporter setApplicationToken:@"token_of_the_application"];

Tips

Manually display the report composer

[[SRReporter reporter] displayReportComposer];

Disable the Shake motion detection

[reporter setDisplayReportComposerWhenShakeDevice:NO];

Known Issues

  • with screen capture enable, the second report does not contain the video.

Inspiration & Help from others

AFNetworking

I would like to mention AFNetworking, super useful HTTP library. I used it to create the http request that upload the video to the SRReport backend. I explicitely renamed AFHTTPClient in SRHTTPClient to allow users to use AFNetworking v2 or v1.x without having any conflict with SRReport
