DevelopersSetting up Proxitee, iOS sdk, work environments
All this talk of iBeacons is great, but to make it all work together we need to create some awesome iBeacon powered apps. This section is dedicated to set you on that path using Proxitee.
Proxitee is one of the best developer platforms for iBeacons.

The Minimal requirements building an iOS application to leverage Beacons is as follows:
Proxitee SDK installation
The Proxitee SDK is a library built on top of Apple’s CoreLocation framework. It’s goal is to remove the common tasks so that you can spend more time developing awesome iBeacon-powered apps. The quickest way to get started is to use CocoaPods. This will get you the latest version of the SDK and it will manage all required frameworks and third party dependencies.
I don’t have CocoaPods
To install CocoaPods launch Terminal then type “sudo gem install cocoapods” and provide your password. This may take a while so be patient.
I’m good – I got CocoaPods installed
Create a new project in Xcode as you would normally. You will need to add a file called Podfile to your Xcode project directory. The easiest way to generate this is go back to the terminal and run pod init. This will generate the pod file in the project directory.
The Podfile should specify the Proxitee SDK as a dependency for your project. Edit the podfile and add the line:
Then back at Terminal navigate to your project directory and install the dependencies by running:
See the CocoaPods guide for more information on using CocoaPods, including how to add CocoaPods to an existing project or workspace.
