Swift/iOS Chat Tutorial

The best place to start is the iOS Swift Chat Tutorial. It teaches you how to use this SDK and also shows how to make frequent changes.

Example App

This repo includes a fully functional example app with setup instructions. It is available under the Example folder.

Docs

You'll typically want to start out using the UI components, and implement your components using the Swift Chat API as needed.

Requirements

  • iOS 11+/macOS 10.15+
  • Xcode 11.2+
  • Swift 5.2
  • CocoaPods 1.7+
  • Carthage 0.33.0+

Mac Catalyst

Our frameworks are compatible with Mac Catalyst, meaning you can create a chat application that works on both iOS and macOS. Read about it here.

⚠️ Carthage does not support Mac Catalyst yet. (ref)

Installation

Stream Chat SDK consists of three frameworks: StreamChat, StreamChatCore and StreamChatClient

  • StreamChatClient - the low-level library that connects & communicates with StreamChat backend.
  • StreamChatCore — building on top of StreamChatClient, it includes models, presenters, and notification manager. Additionally, it has RxSwift support for reactive programming.
  • StreamChat — building on top of Core, it's the full SDK library with all UI components. Styling and deep customizations are all supported out of the box.

CocoaPods

To integrate StreamChat into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, add this entry in your Podfile:

pod 'StreamChat'

Then run pod install.

If you want to use only StreamChatCore or StreamChatClient', you can add this entry in yourPodfile`:

pod 'StreamChatCore'
# or
pod 'StreamChatClient'

In any file you'd like to use Stream Chat in, don't forget to import the frameworks:

import StreamChat

or if you are working with the low-level client or Core:

import StreamChatCore
// or
import StreamChatClient

Carthage

To integrate Stream Chat into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "GetStream/stream-chat-swift"

Then run: carthage update --platform iOS --new-resolver. It will build the frameworks: StreamChatClient.framework, StreamChatCore.framework and StreamChat.framework into <Path to your Project>/Carthage/Build/iOS/ from where you can add them to your project and link them with your app target. Follow with these steps:

  • Open your Xcode project

  • Select the project in the Navigator

  • Select your app target

  • Open General panel

  • Open <Path to your Project>/Carthage/Build/iOS/ in Finder and find StreamChatClient.framework, drag and drop it into Frameworks, Libraries, and Embedded Content area in Xcode. Do the same for StreamChatCore.framework and StreamChat.framework if you need UI components.

  • After adding libraries, select "Do Not Embed" option in "Embed" section. (Right next to the library name after adding it)

  • Open Build Phases panel in Xcode

  • Click the + button and select New Run Script Phase

  • Set the content to: /usr/local/bin/carthage copy-frameworks

  • Add to Input Files:

    • $(SRCROOT)/Carthage/Build/iOS/StreamChatClient.framework

    • $(SRCROOT)/Carthage/Build/iOS/Starscream.framework

    • if you need Core library:

      • $(SRCROOT)/Carthage/Build/iOS/StreamChatCore.framework
      • $(SRCROOT)/Carthage/Build/iOS/RxSwift.framework
      • $(SRCROOT)/Carthage/Build/iOS/RxCocoa.framework
      • $(SRCROOT)/Carthage/Build/iOS/RxRelay.framework
    • if you need UI components:

      • $(SRCROOT)/Carthage/Build/iOS/StreamChat.framework
      • $(SRCROOT)/Carthage/Build/iOS/Nuke.framework
      • $(SRCROOT)/Carthage/Build/iOS/SnapKit.framework
      • $(SRCROOT)/Carthage/Build/iOS/SwiftyGif.framework
      • $(SRCROOT)/Carthage/Build/iOS/RxGesture.framework
  • Add to Output Files:

    • $(BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR)/$(FRAMEWORKS_FOLDER_PATH)/StreamChatClient.framework

    • $(BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR)/$(FRAMEWORKS_FOLDER_PATH)/Starscream.framework

    • if you need Core library:

      • $(BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR)/$(FRAMEWORKS_FOLDER_PATH)/StreamChatCore.framework
      • $(BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR)/$(FRAMEWORKS_FOLDER_PATH)/RxSwift.framework
      • $(BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR)/$(FRAMEWORKS_FOLDER_PATH)/RxCocoa.framework
      • $(BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR)/$(FRAMEWORKS_FOLDER_PATH)/RxRelay.framework
    • if you need UI components:

      • $(BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR)/$(FRAMEWORKS_FOLDER_PATH)/StreamChat.framework ()
      • $(BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR)/$(FRAMEWORKS_FOLDER_PATH)/Nuke.framework
      • $(BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR)/$(FRAMEWORKS_FOLDER_PATH)/SnapKit.framework
      • $(BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR)/$(FRAMEWORKS_FOLDER_PATH)/SwiftyGif.framework
      • $(BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR)/$(FRAMEWORKS_FOLDER_PATH)/RxGesture.framework

Now you can build your app and use StreamChat.

Swift Package Manager

let channel = client.channel(members: [client.user, anotherUser])
print(channel.name) // will print "John"
print(channel.imageURL) // will print "http://example.com/john"

2.2.0 - 2020-05-08 12:36:19

✅ Added

  • avatarViewStyle under ChatViewStyle for customizing Navigation Right Bar Button Item avatar #241.
  • logAssert(_:_:) and logAssertionFailure(_:) functions added to ClientLogger #231.
  • queryChannels now returns unread count of each channel, unrestricted by number of messages fetched #247: Example:
    Client.shared.queryChannels(filter: .currentUserInMembers, sort: [Sorting("has_unread", isAscending: false)]) { (result) in
        for response in result.value! {
            print("Channel \(response.channel.name ?? "nil"), unread messages count: \(response.channel.unreadCount.messages)")
        }
    }
    

🔄 Changed

  • Configuring the shared Client using the static Client.config variable has been deprecated. Please create an instance of the Client.Config struct and call Client.configureShared(_:) to set up the shared instance of Client #231.

    // Deprecated:
    Client.config = .init(apiKey: apiKey, logOptions: .info)
    
    // Preferred:
    var config = Client.Config(apiKey: apiKey)
    config.logOptions = .info
    Client.configureShared(config)
    

    Reasoning: In the original implementation, when Client.shared was accessed for the first time, its initializer used the current value of Client.config. In more complex situations, this approach could cause hard-to-debug race-condition bugs when Client.shared was initialized before its configuration was fully finished. The newly introduced Client.configureShared(_:) function makes the client configuration explicit.

  • Client.shared triggers assertion failure when used without configuring #231.

  • Client.Config triggers assertion failure when created with an empty API key value #231.

  • Assigning an empty string to Client.apiKey triggers assertion failure #231.

  • Changed title of camera upload button from Upload from a camera to Upload from camera #239.

  • Deprecated 2 public initializers from UploadingItem #239:

    public init(attachment:previewImage:previewImageGifData:)
    

    and

    public init(attachment:fileName:)
    

    since they were unused. Please use init(channel:url:) initializer.

  • Atomic.get(default: T) -> T function was deprecated for non-optional T #241

  • Atomic.get() no longer returns an optional type if the wrapped type itself is not optional #241

  • Atomic.init(_:) requires the initial value for non-optional T #241

  • Atomic.DidSetCallback signature changed from (_ value: T?, _ oldValue: T?) -> Void to (_ value: T, _ oldValue: T) -> Void #241

🐞 Fixed

  • Fix rx observing for the connection state #249.
  • Images taken directly from camera do not fail to upload #236.
  • Video uploads are now working, videos are treated as files #239.
  • Files over 20MB will correctly show file size warning #239.

               channel: Channel,
               progress: @escaping Client.Progress, 
               completion: @escaping Client.Completion<URL>) -> Cancellable

func sendFile(data: Data,
              fileName: String,

2.0.0 - 2020-04-02 16:45:29

StreamChat 2.0 here and it's brand new :sparkles: :rocket:

We've added/removed/fixed/changed a lot of stuff, so it's fair to say that StreamChat 2.0 is everything you've liked about 1.x and nothing you didn't like about it :smile:

Most importantly:

  • We have a brand new framework: StreamChatClient, that you can use to easily integrate StreamChat into your app without any Presenter or UI logic we have in StreamChatCore and StreamChat libraries.
    • StreamChatClient has minimal dependencies and it's very low level.
    • No Reactive dependencies! Everything is handled in good old callbacks.
    • No reactive makes you sad? StreamChatCore still has all the reactive functionality you'd expect, so you can keep using RxSwift if you want!
  • We've updated our dependencies, and removed some.

Aside from those, we fixed tons of bugs and polished our API. Now it should be more Swifty :tada: We're working hard on migration guide for our 1.x users and will publish it shortly. You can check out updated docs here
