The SDK helps to access KKBOX's Open API. You can easily add the SDK to your Xcode project, and start an app powered by KKBOX. You may obtain information about song tracks, albums, artists and playlists as well.

The SDK is developed in Objective-C programing language, but you can still bridge the SDK to your Swift code. You can use the SDK on various Apple platforms such as iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS.

If you are looking for a pure Swift SDK, please take a look at KKBOX Open API Swift SDK.

For further information, please visit KKBOX Developer Site.


The SDK supports

  • 📱 iOS 7.x or above
  • 💻 Mac OS X 10.9 or above
  • ⌚️ watchOS 2.x or above
  • 📺 tvOS 9.x or above


You need the latest Xcode and macOS. Xcode 10 and macOS 10.14 Mojave are recommended.


Swift Package Manager

You can install the library via Swift Package Manager (SPM). Just add the following lines to your Package.swift file.

dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/KKBOX/OpenAPI-ObjectiveC.git", from: "1.3.1"),

Then run swift build.

Or, you can use the "Add Package Dependency" command under the "Swift Packages" menu in Xcode 11.


The SDK supports CocoaPods. Please add pod 'KKBOXOpenAPI' to your Podfile, and then call pod install.


To start using the SDK, you need to create an instance of KKBOXOpenAPI.


Then, ask the instance to fetch an access token by passing a client credential.

API.fetchAccessTokenByClientCredential { token, error in ... }

Finally, you can start to do the API calls. For example, you can fetch the details of a song track by calling 'fetchTrack'.

self.API.fetchTrack(withTrackID: trackID, territory: .taiwan) { track, error in ... }

You can develop your app using the SDK with Swift or Objective-C programming language, although we have only Swift sample code here.

The project contains a demo project. Please open KKBOXOpenAPI.xcodeproj located in the "ExampleIOS" folder with Xcode and give it a try.
