[ios][SharePoint]-Upload Image to SharePoint from IPhone App using Swift and ASP.NET WebApi


This article will show some simple steps to upload a picture, document to SharePoint Library using XCode Swift, Asp.net Web api. I will create Native IPhone app using swift language and another app will be asp.net mvc web api to receive images with other information and upload to SharePoint. Both the project are uploaded on below link.
Iphone Project   , Open in the Xcode and Build.
Asp.net Web Api – Project..   Host the Web Application on IIS and published.
I have used the below link to get help to create Iphone native app using swift language, very simple and helpful to create Iphone App.
Image upload example with Swift To Create From Scratch
Below is the Simple example to createWeb Api.
Tutorial How to Create Asp.net Web Api To Create from scratch.

We just need to edit the url of the web api, once the web api receive the request from IPhone app, it will save file locally, than call another function to read image convert and upload to SharePoint 2013.

let myUrl = NSURL(string: http://Webserver/UploadFilesWebApi/api/fileupload/uploadfile”);

I guess it will little helpful for the readers because I didnt find any tutorial to upload from iphone to SharePoint. Below I have mentioned some screen shot.s

Develop Polymer material with Share Point 2013 Binding Polymer Template with Share Point 2013 using CSOM,


In this blog I am going to merge Polymer Template through Angular JS Framework with SharePoint List. I am new to polymer and as well as on angular js but it is pretty much cool ready made stuff :).

You just need to have some knowledge of SharePoint to complete this simple example. I have shared the source code below just upload to SharePoint Library (Add one List Area) and run the page.
For More Knowledge (Polymer)
For More Knowledge (Angular)
For More Knowledge (SharePoint CSOM)

In this demo I will use the below Polymer template. Polymer elements are based on the set of htmls files libraries which are need to be import on the page. On the back end polyer html pages used the JS and CSS. There is a folder of libraries which we need to put in our root folder. When I tried to copy the Libraries folder in my sharepoint desiger page it block due to jason files. Actually JSON files are objects of array for tutorial of polymer, In our databinding we dont need any hard coded JSON files.

We Just create a Single Folder in my site .
2
Create a Single aspx Page, in which we will add our Angulr JS, SharPoint JS Api’s and design it using Polymer core elements. I name it as TestPolymer.aspx
3
I removed all the json files because SPD dont allow to copy the JSON files, These jason files are used in as a data source in the polymer template. So now we copy and paste that libraries inside our SampleTest Folder which we created above. We will create another JS file for angular and we named it as app.js.(we will put our module, controller inside).

WE will also copy the angular.js file to work with the angular framework. So far our folder will be look like .

Below our blank page.

  • Import Polymer libraries on our page. Libraries folder I mentioned above and shared in the OneDrive to just copy and paste in the aspx page folder.
  • Import all the Polyer Script, jquery file, angular.js file and I add CSS for our views.

Below is the source code all, You actually it is an stp file. How to use it.

  • Upload it on the list template library.
  • Create an instance of this.
  • Go to the SharePoint designer open the content and browse or directly browse it form url of your library.
