Apple App Site Association

Posted By Kevin Collins on Mar 10, 2017 |


I am wondering what Apple App Site Association is… Does anyone know?

Someone mentioned Apple App Site Association to me and I tried looking it up but still not sure what it means.

I mean I am kind of a tech person and this is a bit over my head at the moment. From what I can tell it has to do with a bit of Apple’s html coding stuff.

I do have a love for Apple products and Apple apps and just PCs in general but I don’t really know coding or HTML coding or PHP coding or how to create apps.

This is what shows in Google:

Apple App Site Association

If I did understand Apple app site association, what would I do with it and how would I use it correctly?

And what’s the benefits of knowing how to work with it? Is it something worth learning about or not really… In what context is this phrase referring to?

its says this:

apple-app-site-association —with examples
Readme.markdown

“apple-app-site-association” file

One file for each domain, both www.example.com and example.com need separate files:

{
    "applinks": {
        "apps": [],
        "details": {
            "9JA89QQLNQ.com.apple.wwdc": {
                "paths": [
                    "/wwdc/news/",
                    "/videos/wwdc/2015/*"
                ]
            }
        }
    }
}

I just don't know that this means... maybe I am slow but I don't get it. 
do you understand this stuff?

I feel like I need to go to HTML school or watch some trainings to learn 
all the stuff. 
It's probably on YouTube for another site that can teach me a lot more 
about this than a coding.

I do have really cool app creations ideas that I would like to create 
at some point. 
So maybe it would be good to understand this a lot better.
