Compiling and Running ROOT on iOS


I am collecting a large quantity of time series data on an iOS (iPhone) device for transfer to a backend data store for machine learning. I was wondering whether anyone has successfully compiled and run ROOT on iOS and specifically an iPhone.

Thanks in advance.

@oshadura knows perhaps?

Hi @jon2718, I personally never heard anybody doing this but maybe @Axel knows somebody who was successful.

We had an iOS port in the past - it’s still in the sources. We also ported to Apple Silicon without much effort - so it can likely be done.

But I’d argue that this is likely not the optimal approach. You might be better off having ROOT run on some server, and pushing your data from your iOS device (say through compressed JSON) into ROOT. Would that be an option?
