WiredSwift

WiredSwift is an implementation of the Wired 2.0 protocol written in Swift.

Actions Status

Requirements

  • macOS 10.14
  • iOS 12
  • Xcode

Dependencies

Dependencies are managed by Swift Package Manager, have a look to the Package.swif file for details.

Getting Started

Adding to your project

Latest release version:

.package(name: "WiredSwift", url: "https://github.com/nark/WiredSwift", from: "1.0.6")

Latest upstream version:

.package(name: "WiredSwift", url: "https://github.com/nark/WiredSwift", .branch("master"))

Connection

Minimal connection to a Wired 2.0 server:

let specUrl = URL(string: "https://wired.read-write.fr/spec.xml")!
let spec = P7Spec(withUrl: specUrl)

// the Wired URL to connect to
let url = Url(withString: "wired://localhost:4871")

// init connection
let connection = Connection(withSpec: spec, delegate: self)
connection.nick = "Me"
connection.status = "Testing WiredSwift"

// perform  connect
if connection.connect(withUrl: url) {
    // connected
} else {
    // not connected
    print(connection.socket.errors)
}

Join to the public chat

Once connected, in order to login into the public chat and list connected users, you have to explicitely trigger the wired.chat.join_chat transaction. The Connection class can help you by calling the following method:

connection.joinChat(chatID: 1)

Where 1 is always the ID of the public chat regarding the Wired 2.0 protocol.

Receive messages

While using interactive mode, you have to comply with the ConnectionDelegate protocol to receive messages (P7Message) or any other events from the initiated connection. For example, the connectionDidSendMessage(connection: Connection, message: P7Message) method will distribute received messages which you can handle as the following:

extension Controller: ConnectionDelegate {
    func connectionDidReceiveMessage(connection: Connection, message: P7Message) {
        if  message.name == "wired.chat.user_list" {
            print(message.xml())
        }
    }
    
    func connectionDidReceiveError(connection: Connection, message: P7Message) {
        if let specError = spec.error(forMessage: message), let errorMessage = specError.name {
            print(errorMessage)
        }
    }
}

Send messages

The following example illustrate how to send a message:

let message = P7Message(withName: "wired.chat.say", spec: spec)
message!.addParameter(field: "wired.chat.id", value: 1) // public chat ID
message!.addParameter(field: "wired.chat.say", value: "Hello, world!")

self.connection.send(message: message!)

To learn more about the Wired 2.0 specification you can visit this documentation: http://wired.read-write.fr/spec.html and read the orginal code of the libwired C library: https://github.com/nark/libwired

Interactive socket

The Connection class provides two ways of handling messages:

  • connection instance is set as interactive so it will automatically manage a listening loop in a separated thread and dispatch receive message through ConnectionDelegate protocol to registered delegates in the main thread. This is the default behavior.
  • connection instance is NOT interactive, and in that case you have to handle every message read/write transactions by yourself using Connection.readMessage() and Connection.sendMessage() methods. This for example is used for transfers separated connections that have different behaviors.

Set the interactive attribute to false before calling Connection.connect() if you want to use uninteractive mode.

Client Info Delegate

The Connection class provides the ClientInfoDelegate to return custom values for wired.info.application.name, wired.info.application.version and wired.info.application.build of the wired.client_info message.

extension Controller: ClientInfoDelegate {
    func clientInfoApplicationName(for connection: Connection) -> String? {
        return "My Swift Client"
    }

    func clientInfoApplicationVersion(for connection: Connection) -> String? {
        return "1.0"
    }

    func clientInfoApplicationBuild(for connection: Connection) -> String? {
        return "99"
    }
}

BlockConnection

WiredSwift provides a BlockConnection class which instead of using delegate, uses Swift completion closure, combined with Wired 2.0 transaction (wired.transaction). Each message sent using this class is flagged with an incremental transaction number in the wired.transaction field. Each response to this relative message sent by the server will also provide the same transaction number in the wired.transaction field. This way, the BlockConnection class can internally match responses with completion closure as callbacks.

let connection = BlockConnection(withSpec: spec, delegate: self)

if connection.connect(withUrl: serverURL) {
    let message = P7Message(withName: "wired.board.get_boards", spec: spec)
    
    connection.send(message: message, progressBlock: { (response) in            
        if response.name == "wired.board.board_list", let board = response.string(forField: "wired.board.board") {
            print(board)
        }
    }) { (response) in
        print("Board loading done.")
    }            
}

Logger

You can configure the Logger class of WiredSwift as follow:

// set the max vele severity
Logger.setMaxLevel(.ERROR)

// completely remove STDOUT console output
Logger.removeDestination(.Stdout)

Development

Build

swift build -v

Run Tests

swift test -v

Xcode project

You can (re)genrerate Xcode project by using:

swift package generate-xcodeproj

Contribute

You are welcome to contribute using issues and pull-requests if you want to.

Focus is on:

  • socket IO stability: the quality of in/out data interpretation and management through the Wired socket
  • mutli-threading stability: the ability to interact smoothly between connections and UIs
  • low-level unit tests: provides a strong implementation to enforce the integrity of the specification
  • specification compliance: any not yet implemented features that require kilometers of code…
  • limit regression from the original implementation

Release Notes

0.0.2-alpha
1 year ago

This is a very alpha version of a client app that runs against a completely new implementation of the Wired 2.0 protocol written in Swift (https://github.com/nark/WiredSwift). It is still incomplete and quite unstable but it looks promising while keeping the complexity of the codebase at an acceptable level for now.

It will take some time to cover the whole set of features of the protocol in a stable way, so do not expect this app to become your main client from any time soon.

It requires macOS 10.14+
