APNSwift

A non-blocking Swift module for sending remote Apple Push Notification requests to APNS built on http/2, SwiftNIO for use on server side swift platforms.

Installation

To install APNSwift, just add the package as a dependency in your Package.swift. Though you may want to consider using master branch until approved by the SSWG.

dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/kylebrowning/APNSwift.git", from: "1.0.0")
]

Getting Started

let signer = try! APNSwiftSigner(filePath: "/Users/kylebrowning/Downloads/AuthKey_9UC9ZLQ8YW.p8")

let apnsConfig = APNSwiftConfiguration(keyIdentifier: "9UC9ZLQ8YW",
                                       teamIdentifier: "ABBM6U9RM5",
                                       signer: signer,
                                       topic: "com.grasscove.Fern",
                                       environment: .sandbox)

let apns = try APNSwiftConnection.connect(configuration: apnsConfig, on: group.next()).wait()
let alert = Alert(title: "Hey There", subtitle: "Full moon sighting", body: "There was a full moon last night did you see it")
let aps = APNSwiftPayload(alert: alert, badge: 1, sound: .normal("cow.wav"))
let notification = APNSwiftNotification(aps: aps)
let res = try apns.send(notification, to: "de1d666223de85db0186f654852cc960551125ee841ca044fdf5ef6a4756a77e").wait()
try apns.close().wait()
try group.syncShutdownGracefully()

APNSwiftConfiguration

APNSwiftConfiguration is a structure that provides the system with common configuration.

public struct APNSwiftConfiguration {
    public var keyIdentifier: String
    public var teamIdentifier: String
    public var signer: APNSwiftSigner
    public var topic: String
    public var environment: Environment
    public var tlsConfiguration: TLSConfiguration

    public var url: URL {
        switch environment {
        case .production:
            return URL(string: "https://api.push.apple.com")!
        case .sandbox:
            return URL(string: "https://api.development.push.apple.com")!
        }
    }

Example APNSwiftConfiguration

let signer = ...
let apnsConfig = try APNSwiftConfiguration(keyIdentifier: "9UC9ZLQ8YW",
                                   teamIdentifier: "ABBM6U9RM5",
                                   signer: signer),
                                   topic: "com.grasscove.Fern",
                                   environment: .sandbox)

Signer

APNSwiftSigner provides a structure to sign the payloads with. This should be loaded into memory at the configuration level. It requires the data to be in a ByteBuffer format.

let url = URL(fileURLWithPath: "/Users/kylebrowning/Downloads/AuthKey_9UC9ZLQ8YW.p8")
let data: Data
do {
    data = try Data(contentsOf: url)
} catch {
    throw APNSwiftError.SigningError.certificateFileDoesNotExist
}
var byteBuffer = ByteBufferAllocator().buffer(capacity: data.count)
byteBuffer.writeBytes(data)
let signer = try! APNSwiftSigner.init(buffer: byteBuffer)

APNSwiftConnection

APNSwiftConnection is a class with methods thats provides a wrapper to NIO's ClientBootstrap. The swift-nio-http2 dependency is utilized here. It also provides a function to send a notification to a specific device token string.

Example APNSwiftConnection

let apnsConfig = ...
let apns = try APNSwiftConnection.connect(configuration: apnsConfig, on: group.next()).wait()

Alert

Alert is the actual meta data of the push notification alert someone wishes to send. More details on the specifics of each property are provided here. They follow a 1-1 naming scheme listed in Apple's documentation

Example Alert

let alert = Alert(title: "Hey There", subtitle: "Full moon sighting", body: "There was a full moon last night did you see it")

APNSwiftPayload

APNSwiftPayload is the meta data of the push notification. Things like the alert, badge count. More details on the specifics of each property are provided here. They follow a 1-1 naming scheme listed in Apple's documentation

Example APNSwiftPayload

let alert = ...
let aps = APNSwiftPayload(alert: alert, badge: 1, sound: .normal("cow.wav"))

Putting it all together

let group = MultiThreadedEventLoopGroup(numberOfThreads: 1)
let url = URL(fileURLWithPath: "/Users/kylebrowning/Downloads/AuthKey_9UC9ZLQ8YW.p8")
let data: Data
do {
    data = try Data(contentsOf: url)
} catch {
    throw APNSwiftError.SigningError.certificateFileDoesNotExist
}
var byteBuffer = ByteBufferAllocator().buffer(capacity: data.count)
byteBuffer.writeBytes(data)
let signer = try! APNSwiftSigner.init(buffer: byteBuffer)

let apnsConfig = APNSwiftConfiguration(keyIdentifier: "9UC9ZLQ8YW",
                                       teamIdentifier: "ABBM6U9RM5",
                                       signer: signer,
                                       topic: "com.grasscove.Fern",
                                       environment: .sandbox)

let apns = try APNSwiftConnection.connect(configuration: apnsConfig, on: group.next()).wait()
let alert = Alert(title: "Hey There", subtitle: "Full moon sighting", body: "There was a full moon last night did you see it")
let aps = APNSwiftPayload(alert: alert, badge: 1, sound: .normal("cow.wav"))
let notification = BasicNotification(aps: aps)
let res = try apns.send(notification, to: "de1d666223de85db0186f654852cc960551125ee841ca044fdf5ef6a4756a77e").wait()
try apns.close().wait()
try group.syncShutdownGracefully()

Custom Notification Data

Apple provides engineers with the ability to add custom payload data to each notification. In order to facilitate this we have the APNSwiftNotification.

Example

struct AcmeNotification: APNSwiftNotification {
    let acme2: [String]
    let aps: APNSwiftPayload

    init(acme2: [String], aps: APNSwiftPayload) {
        self.acme2 = acme2
        self.aps = aps
    }
}

let apns: APNSwiftConnection: = ...
let aps: APNSwiftPayload = ...
let notification = AcmeNotification(acme2: ["bang", "whiz"], aps: aps)
let res = try apns.send(notification, to: "de1d666223de85db0186f654852cc960551125ee841ca044fdf5ef6a4756a77e").wait()
