Using the Trip Element in a Mobile Application (iOS)

To load the Trip Element within a mobile application, we recommend using the WKWebView object Class for iOS.

Step 1: Set up the Source HTML file

First, you can create a standard HTML file that loads the Trip Element just like any other webpage. Here, you can define your elementConfig and pre-configure the element with the desired properties.

In this example, we have pre-configured a trip for a CAN passport holder traveling from CAN to EGY

    Include the sherpa° SDK by adding the script tag to the head of your HTML file and include your personalized APP_ID.
    Note: You will receive a unique APP_ID during onboarding.
    <script src="https://sdk-sandbox.joinsherpa.io/widget.js?appId=<<your_appID>>" defer></script>
    <!-- Place an empty <div> element on your site to act as the mount point. -->
    <div id='sherpa-trip-element'></div>
    <script type='text/javascript'>
      // Set up the element configuration
      const elementConfig = {
        // 1. Element Placement: Where the Element is being placed on your site e.g. mmb, discovery            
        placement: "discovery",
        travellers: [{
          nationality: 'CAN', //traveller's passport
          vaccinations: [{
            type: 'COVID_19',
            status: 'FULLY_VACCINATED',
          }, ],
        }, ],
        segments: [{
          segmentType: 'OUTBOUND',
          origin: {
            countryCode: 'CAN',
          destination: {
            countryCode: 'EGY',
          travelMode: 'AIR',
          departureDate: '2023-06-22',
          departureTime: '12:59:00',
          arrivalDate: '2023-06-22',
          arrivalTime: '12:59:00',
        }, ],
      // Filter for skdLoaded event then call element
      function onSherpaEvent(event) {
        if (event.type === 'sdkLoaded') {
          // Sherpa SDK is ready, create and mount new element
          $sherpa.V2.createElement('trip', elementConfig).mount('#sherpa-trip-element');

Step 2: Setup WebView and Call the HTML file

Next, set up WebView in your development environment. Here, you will call the HTML file that you created in Step 1 in order to display the Trip Element within your mobile app (Line 8). The following code sample is written in Swift.

import SwiftUI
import WebKit

struct ContentView: View {
    @State private var showWebView = false
    // Set HTML file as string
    private let urlString: String = "<<html_filname.html>>"
    var body: some View {
        VStack(spacing: 40) {
            // Normal WebView
            WebView(url: URL(string: urlString)!).frame(height: 500.0)
                .shadow(color: .black.opacity(0.3), radius: 20.0, x: 5, y: 5)

// WebView Struct
struct WebView: UIViewRepresentable {
    var url: URL
    func makeUIView(context: Context) -> WKWebView {
        return WKWebView()
    func updateUIView(_ webView: WKWebView, context: Context) {
        let request = URLRequest(url: url)

struct ContentView_Previews: PreviewProvider {
    static var previews: some View {

Step 3: Sample Output

You should now have the Trip Element loaded within your mobile app. Sample output is provided below.
