.package(url: "https://github.com/Swiftgram/TDLibFramework.git", from: "1.8.25-fe620155")



Project contains pre-compiled TDLib binary for iOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS and simulators in .xcframework bundle.

If you're looking for pure Swift library, check out TDLibKit


Xcode (SPM)

  1. Install latest Xcode
  2. Add https://github.com/Swiftgram/TDLibFramework as SPM dependency in Project > Swift Packages. This could take a while cause it downloads ~300mb zip file with xcframework.
  3. Add TDLibFramework as your target dependency.
  4. Code!

Cocoapods & Flutter

See the docs


Simple examples can be found in Tests directory.

Create client

let clientId: Int32 = td_create_client_id()

Make request object

let request = ["@type": "getTextEntities", "text": "@telegram /test_command https://telegram.org telegram.me", "@extra": ["5", 7.0, "\\u00e4"]] as [String: Any]

JSON Serialization and Deserialization

Small example for helper functions you will need to talk with TDLib

func dictToJSONString(_ dictionary: [String: Any]) -> String {
    let dictionaryData = try! JSONSerialization.data(withJSONObject: dictionary)
    return String(data: dictionaryData, encoding: .utf8)!

func JSONStringToDict(_ string: String) -> [String: Any] {
    let responseData = string.data(using: .utf8)!
    return try! JSONSerialization.jsonObject(with: responseData, options: .allowFragments) as! [String: Any]

Synchronious requests

Only for methods with "Can be called synchronously" in docs

if let res = td_execute(dictToJSONString(request)) {
    let responseString = String(cString: res)
    let responseDict = JSONStringToDict(responseString)
    print("Response from TDLib \(responseDict)")

Async requests

let request = [
    "@type": "setTdlibParameters",
    "api_hash": "5e6d7b36f0e363cf0c07baf2deb26076",
    "api_id": 287311,
    "application_version": "1.0",
    "database_directory": "tdlib",
    "database_encryption_key": nil,
    "device_model": "iOS",
    "enable_storage_optimizer": true,
    "files_directory": "",
    "ignore_file_names": true,
    "system_language_code": "en",
    "system_version": "Unknown",
    "use_chat_info_database": true,
    "use_file_database": true,
    "use_message_database": true,
    "use_secret_chats": true,
    "use_test_dc": false,
] as [String: Any]
// Send request
td_send(clientId, dictToJSONString(request))

// Block thread and wait for response (not more 5.0 seconds)
if let response = td_receive(5.0) {
   let responseString = String(cString: res)
   let responseDict = JSONStringToDict(responseString)
   print("Async response from TDLib \(responseDict)")

Close client on exit

td_send(clientId, dictToJSONString(["@type": "Close"] as [String: String]))
