Swift Phoenix Client

Swift Version License Platform Carthage compatible Open Source Helpers


SwiftPhoenixClient is a Swift port of phoenix.js, allowing your swift projects to connect to a Phoenix Websocket backend.

We try out best to keep the library up to date with phoenix.js but if there is something that is missing, please create an issue or, even better, a PR to address the change.

Sample Projects

You can view the example of how to use SwiftPhoenixClient in the Example/ dir. There are two primary classes, BasicViewController and ChatRoomViewController. The BasicViewController is designed to test against a local chat server where as ChatRoomViewController is a more "complete" example which targets dwyl's phoenix-chat-example Heroku app.


The core module which provides the Phoenix Channels and Presence logic. It also uses URLSession's default WebSocket implementation which has a minimum iOS target of 13.0.



You can install SwiftPhoenix Client via CocoaPods by adding the following to your Podfile. Keep in mind that in order to use Swift Phoenix Client, the minimum iOS target must be '9.0'

pod "SwiftPhoenixClient", '~> 5.3'

and running pod install. From there you will need to add import SwiftPhoenixClient in any class you want it to be used.


If you use Carthage to manage your dependencies, simply add SwiftPhoenixClient to your Cartfile:

github "davidstump/SwiftPhoenixClient" ~> 5.3

Then run carthage update.

If this is your first time using Carthage in the project, you'll need to go through some additional steps as explained over at Carthage.


Note: Instructions below are for using SwiftPM without the Xcode UI. It's the easiest to go to your Project Settings -> Swift Packages and add SwiftPhoenixClient from there.

To integrate using Apple's Swift package manager, without Xcode integration, add the following as a dependency to your Package.swift:

.package(url: "https://github.com/davidstump/SwiftPhoenixClient.git", .upToNextMajor(from: "5.2.2"))

and then specify "SwiftPhoenixClient" as a dependency of the Target in which you wish to use SwiftPhoenixClient.


Using the Swift Phoenix Client is extremely easy (and familiar if you have used the phoenix.js client).

See the Usage Guide for details instructions. You can also check out the documentation


Check out the ViewController in this repo for a brief example of a simple iOS chat application using the Phoenix Chat Example

Also check out both the Swift and Elixir channels on IRC.
