Turning on a VPN is always a painful experience on an iOS device due to the deep nested menus. This App installs a Today Widget into Notification Center which make it possible to turn on a VPN in about 3 seconds(depends on the connection speed). Furthermore, by turning on On Demand feature, the VPN could be automatically connected when you visit any domain specified in this App.
- An iPhone/iPad running iOS 10.3+
- An IPSec IKEv1 / IKEv2 VPN(create yours with my Ansible Playbook or deploy on DigitalOcean)
- Xcode 10.3+
- An Apple iOS develop account
- A MaxMind account for GeoIP resolving
Build with Xcode
To compile the project, you may temporarily modify the
bundle_id after adding yours into the Apple Developer Center. And then activate the following capabilities of the container App and the Today extension:
- Personal VPN
- Keychain Sharing
- App Groups
Meanwhile, provisioning profiles are required for testing on iPhone/iPad.
Once you add a VPN configuration you can activate the Today Widget in Notification Center, then turn on the VPN by tapping a switch or flag. You may be asked to allow the installation of a VPN profile for the first time.
Issues and roadmap are listed here.
This project follows the gitflow workflow. You'd better create a branch called
feature/sth_improved before any major improvements. Meanwhile minor bug fixes are welcomed in the develop branch.
Please contribute to the Transifex project.
