Situm WYF is a Plug-and-play UX component that will allow you to bring wayfinding capabilities to your apps in no-time. If you integrate it, your application will be able to:
- Show a navigation screen with cartography visualization
- Show a POI search bar
- Generate indoor & outdoor geolocation
- Provide wayfinding, turn-by-turn indications.
- …and more.
Here’s a glimpse of how your app might look like.
Situm WYF is available for Android & iOS native, with plugins available for React Native, Capacitor and Cordova as well (we don’t recommend using Cordova, use Capacitor instead).
If you’re using any other platform, such as Flutter or Xamarin, you’ll also be able to integrate Situm WYF in your app by just wrapping the native Android & iOS native modules.
How do I get started? #
In order to start building apps with Situm WYF, you will need:
- Previous development experience in the platform where your app will run (Android, iOS, Cordova, React Native), plus a development environment up & running (including a compatible smartphone).
- To create an account in Situm Dashboard.
- To create an API KEY (that you will use in your application).
- A Situm building up & running for testing purposes. We recommend you to create a building where you can perform your tests (e.g. your office), calibrate it and test the positioning and wayfinding using our Situm Mapping Tool.
- Optionally, you may need BLE beacons in some cases.
We recommend you to take a look at our code examples.
Try WYF module with AVD #
If you want to test your app in an AVD you need to use one that has the Google APIs enabled. In the AVD manager you can see which ones have it enabled in the target section.
