Using Skygear Chat iOS SDK

Please reference to Skygear Chat Quick Start guide for how to use SKYKitChat: https://docs.skygear.io/guides/chat/quick-start/ios/

Using Skygear Chat UIKit

UIKit only support Swift 3.2 for now. Swift 4.0 supports are coming.

To use the UIKit comes with Skygear, follow these steps:

1. Include SKYKitChat/UI in PodFile

  pod 'SKYKit', '~> 1.1'
  pod 'SKYKitChat', '~> 1.1'
  pod 'SKYKitChat/UI', '~> 1.1'

Run pod install afterwards

2. Include 3 permissions by adding 3 rows in Info.plist of your XCode project:

  • Privacy - Photo Library Usage Description
    • Recommended Description: The app requires access to your photo library for sending images in chat
  • Privacy - Camera Usage Description
    • Recommended Description: The app requires access to your camera for sending images in chat
  • Privacy - Microphone Usage Description
    • Recommended Description: The app requires access to your microphone for sending voices in chat

3. Open conversation view after creating conversation object

Currently UIKit consist of a built-in conversation view. You can use it after getting the conversation object from Chat API:

let vc = SKYChatConversationViewController()
vc.conversation = conversation // conversation object create from chat sdk
self.navigationController?.pushViewController(vc, animated: true)

Bare minimal sample

A bare minimal example in Swift 3.2, which will display a SKYChatConversationView without the navigation bar, to chat with a User hard-coded its ID.

AppDelegate.swift:

import UIKit
import SKYKit
import SKYKitChat

@UIApplicationMain
class AppDelegate: UIResponder, UIApplicationDelegate {

    var window: UIWindow?


    func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {

        let skygear = SKYContainer.default()

        skygear.configAddress("change me with your Skygear API Endpoint")
        skygear.configure(withAPIKey: "change me with your Skygear API Key")

        skygear.auth.signupAnonymously(completionHandler: { (user, error) in
            skygear.chatExtension?.createDirectConversation(userID: "change me with a user ID in your app", title: "Test Group", metadata: nil, completion: { (conversation, error) in
                let vc = SKYChatConversationViewController()
                vc.conversation = conversation
                self.window?.rootViewController = vc
            })
        })
        return true
    }

If you project is in Objective-C, and you need to use the UI classes, you need to add the generated interface header:

#import <SKYKitChat/SKYKitChat-Swift.h>

Example

To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.
