The robobo framework is the base library to build applications with the Robobo Robot. The framework is designed in a modular way, new functionalities are added through modules that implement the protocol defined by the IModule.swift class. The core of the framework manages the lifecycle of the Robobo application, loading all the modules defined (in order) in the modules.plist file and stopping them when the app shuts down. The manager also provides a logging system with different log levels that can be accessed by another classes implementing the IRoboboLogDelegate protocol.


To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.

The example shows how the robobo framework is instanced and how the modules are loaded.

In the ViewController.swift file is demonstrated how the framework is instantiated:

override func viewDidLoad() {
// Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
manager = RoboboManager()
try manager.startup()
} catch {

There are two dummy modules to show how to implement the Robobo modules and how to require other modules from inside a module.

public class DummyModule2: NSObject, IModule {
var manager: RoboboManager!
var dummy1: DummyModule!

    public func startup(_ manager: RoboboManager) throws {
        self.manager = manager

        manager.log("Starting DummyModule 2")
            var module = try manager.getModuleInstance("DummyModule")
            dummy1 = module as? DummyModule
            manager.log("Calling funcion from dummy 1 from dummy 2")
        manager.log(error.localizedDescription, .ERROR)


    public func shutdown() throws {
        manager.log("Shutting down DummyModule 2")


    public func getModuleInfo() -> String {
        return "DummyModule1"

    public func getModuleVersion() -> String {
        return "1.0"

    public func dummyFunc2(){
        manager.log("Function called on Dummy module 2")

To load the modules from the manager, they must be defined on the modules.plist file with the following convention:

Key: LoadNumber + dot + Name to be referenced on load

Value: package name + name of the class implementing the module (not the interface)
