@portal-hq/icloud-storage

Portal iCloud backup storage

The @portal-hq/icloud-storage package contains a storage adapter intended for use with the @portal-hq/core package.
This storage adapter allows end users to save backup MPC shares to their iCloud filesystem.
Note: This storage provider is only supported on iOS devices, so should not be used as your sole backup storage adapter unless you are explicitly releasing an iOS-only app.
Note: you will need a paid developer account to use iCloud backup

Basic usage

Install the package in your React Native project.

yarn
npm
yarn add @portal-hq/icloud-storage
npm install --save @portal-hq/icloud-storage

Import the package into the component where you initialize the Portal class

import Portal from '@portal-hq/core'
import ICloudStorage from '@portal-hq/icloud-storage'

Register your storage adapter and initialize the Portal class

const portal = new Portal({
// ...your other config options
backup: {
icloud: new ICloudStorage(),
},
})

Check if the user is connected to iCloud

// Returns one of the following:
// "available", "not_signed_in", "no_access"
await portal.backup[BackupMethods.iCloud].getAvailability();
