First time blockstack dev here and I am trying to follow the instructions given here https://github.com/blockstack/blockstack-ios to authenticate in an iOS app. I have installed the the “webapp” given as example, however, I am a bit lost here, probably due to the lack of understanding of core Blockstack architecture.
My web app is running on my laptop’s localhost, if I want to hit this app from my phone’s browser or an app, I will need to give the app my local IP address? That will help in authenticating through blockstack?
How can we “register” the domain name and end point like
myblockstackapp://? Is it registered somewhere or it’s just an arbitrary name we assign ourselves?
From another forum thread thread and through multiplayer tutorial I gather that we need a .id domain for the “app”? or is it for ourselves?
How come all the other apps are running on .com TLD like:
To sum it up, if I host the “webapp” given as example on a server under a centralized TLD like .com and hit my app using that URL in the browser and ask the user to go through auth and redirect back to the app? But how do I hit
myblockstackapp:// from that app for a URL?
Sorry, if its a confusing thread but I am that confused If there is any documentation or video or tutorial I can follow that will be wonderful. I have searched, couldn’t find any, will be happy to create one if someone could just explain the domain name and auth-redirect for me.
