Introducing indoor geolocation-based services in your apps is easy thanks to our SDKs, tools that allow you to implement Situm’s main features: indoor positioning and guidance, mapping and analytics.
Until now, Situm was compatible with Android, iOS, Cordova and React Native. Capacitor is the latest hybrid platform to be added to this list to increase the integration possibilities of Situm’s WYF module.
Capacitor is an open-source project that runs modern Web Apps natively on iOS, Android and Web. Its compatibility with hybrid frameworks has been definitive for Situm’s commitment to this tool. Capacitor provides a powerful and simple interface to access the native SDKs and APIs of each platform and is the natural successor of Cordova, but with a more modern approach to application development. By implementing its use, Situm makes a big bet on productivity, as it allows you to program a single app compatible at the same time with two platforms: Android and iOS.
With the WYF module for Capacitor, you can, among other fully customizable options:
- Load a native Situm map and integrate it into Capacitor. Display the different cartography elements: a complete map with the different floors of the building, points of interest (POIs) and search directory, and geofences.
- Start positioning on any building in your Situm account. Indoor/outdoor geolocation plus guidance with different route settings (shortest route, accessible routes only, etc.).
- Start offering turn-by-turn navigation in your buildings with visual, text and/or voice prompts.
- Interact with HTML and native elements.
You can now access our WYF plugin created for Capacitor which allows you to take the native WYF to hybrid applications made on this platform. That is, take advantage of all the advantages of compatibility offered by Capacitor along with the benefits of our WYF module, since being native allows a very smooth user experience in terms of displaying maps, camera movement, filtering and grouping of points of interest, etc.
After this release, developers who want to implement some Situm functionality in their apps will be able to do it with either native tools, Android or iOS, or hybrid tools such as Cordova, React Native and finally, Capacitor. In addition, we have just published a base app with which you can create your guidance app in just a few minutes. Take a look at it!
