It is possible to configure OpenBack using an optional plist, something useful when working on frameworks like Cordova, Unity or Titanium.

The plist configuration could be used as the default settings that you can still override in when initializing OpenBack. Something useful to test with a different app code and logging level.

Configuration Order

  1. Load config from OpenBackConfig.plist
  2. If it doesn't exist, load from the OpenBack dictionary entry in Info.plist (since v1.7.3)
  3. Override with parameters from setupWithConfig:
