ForemWebView - iOS

This is the WKWebView customization that powers the Forem (coming soon) and DEV mobile apps.


The Project supports iOS 13.x but features like Picture in Picture are only available for iPhones on iOS 14.x


The Swift Package Manager is a tool for automating the distribution of Swift code and is integrated into the swift compiler. Once you have your Swift package set up, adding ForemWebView as a dependency is as easy as adding it to the dependencies value of your Package.swift.

dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/forem/ForemWebView-ios.git", .upToNextMajor(from: "1.0.0"))

Carthage & CocoaPods

We've moved to supporting SPM and not Carthage or CocoaPods. If interested in contributing, PRs to support these are welcome!


After importing the framework into your project you can initialize the ForemWebView like you would any other WKWebView (Storyboard, programmatically, etc). This custom WKWebView implementation will handle it's own WKNavigationDelegate, so instead of implementing this logic yourself please rely on the provided ForemWebViewDelegate for callbacks.

We have two deep dive documents:

  • ForemWebView deep dive is a walkthrough of the capabilities available when you're using the Framework in your project
  • Native Bridge deep dive documents the native interface used to communicate between the Web (DOM + JS) and Swift contexts

# Make sure the `destination` param is using an iOS/Simulator available in your local environment
set -o pipefail && xcodebuild -scheme ForemWebView -sdk iphonesimulator -destination 'platform=iOS Simulator,OS=14.2,name=iPhone 12 Pro Max' test | xcpretty
