This project is an open source version of White-SDK-IOS. In order to better display the source code structure, 'Whiteboard' divided the project into several 'subpods', which is more conducive to developers to view the source code level of the project. To do this, you need to modify the reference relationship.

Official document —— iOS part


  • CocoaPods

pod 'Whiteboard'
  • Swift Package Manager

 dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/netless-io/Whiteboard-iOS.git", .upToNextMajor(from: "2.15.0"))


  • Start Example
cd Example
pod install

Go to the Example folder and open the Example.xcworkspace project file.

At the same time in WhiteUtils.m fill in WhiteSDKToken, WhiteAppIdentifier according to the code comment

/* FIXME: sdkToken
 Please register at https://console.netless.link and get the SDK token
This SDK token should not be stored on the client side, and all requests involving SDK tokens (all requests in the current class) should be placed on the server to avoid unnecessary risks caused by leaks.
#define WhiteSDKToken <#@sdk Token#>
#define WhiteAppIdentifier <#@App identifier#>

Debugging specific rooms

If you need to go to a specific room for debugging, go to the Whiteboard-Prefix.pch file, uncomment WhiteRoomUUID and WhiteRoomToken and fill in the specified contents.

// If you add WhiteRoomUUID and WhiteRoomToken, then, you can define WhiteSDKToken as @""
//#define WhiteSDKToken <#@sdk Token#>
//#define WhiteAppIdentifier <#@App identifier#>

// If you need access to a specific room, uncomment the following two lines and fill in the corresponding UUID and RoomToken
//#define WhiteRoomUUID <#Room UUID#>
//#define WhiteRoomToken <#Room Token#>

At this point, if you add or replay a room, you will enter that room.

Unit testing

Unit tests need to test some special behaviors, so the following operations are required for the corresponding room:

  1. Inserted image interface (from the room that unit test started, image blocking is already enabled)
  2. Sent specific custom events (defined in the unit test code)
  3. Sent a lot of custom events

Device required

Running device: iOS 10 + Development environment: Xcode 10+

The project structure

SDK is composed of multiple subpods, and the dependency structure is shown in the following figure:

Project dependency structure

parameter configuration class: A class used to describe and store API parameters, return values, status, and other configuration items. Mainly used to interact with webview.

  1. Object: The main function of Object is to handle the JSON conversion via YYModel. Contains the following parts:
    1. The Object base class, the base class of all the parameters used in the SDK configuration class.
    2. Some of the parameter configuration classes in Room and Player API.
  2. Base: includesSDK Displayer and some related classes, mainly as follows:
    1. WhiteSDK and its initialization parameter class.
    2. Generic callback whiteCommonCallbacks set byWhiteSDK
    3. Implementation of the same parent class Displayer as Room and Player.
    4. Some of the parameter configuration classes used by the Displayer API.
    5. Displayer is a class used to describe the current RoomState. It is the base class of RoomState and PlayerState.
  3. Real-time Room
    1. Room class, and its related event callback class.
    2. WhiteSDK+Room, using the SDK API to create Room.
    3. Parameter configuration class unique to Room.
    4. Describe the class related to Room.
  4. You can play back the contents of the room.
    1. Player class, and its related event callback class.
    2. WhiteSDK+Player, using the SDK API to create Player.
    3. The Player specific parameter configuration class.
    4. Describe the class related to the status of Player.
  5. NativePlayer: Play audio and video on the iOS side, and synchronize with the whiteboard playing state
    1. WhiteCombinePlayer class, and some of its related classes.
  6. Converter: Convert the request to the wrapper class.
  • Charging for dynamic and static conversion is based on QPS (daily concurrency). The client cannot control the concurrency, so it is not recommended to use in production environment. Please refer to the documentation for details.

Native audio and video

SDK now supports CombinePlayer to play audio and video in the Native end, and SDK will be responsible for synchronizing the state of audio and video with the whiteboard playback.

Specific code examples, see WhitePlayerViewController

m3u8 format of the audio and video, may need to be after a combinePlayerEndBuffering calls to seek. (otherwise it may still start playing from the original position)

#import <Whiteboard/Whiteboard.h>

@implementation WhitePlayerViewController
- (void)initPlayer

  // Create WhitePlayer logic

  // 1. Configure SDK initialization parameters, more parameters, see the WhitesdkConfiguration header file
  WhiteSdkConfiguration *config = [[WhiteSdkConfiguration alloc] initWithApp:[WhiteUtils appIdentifier]];
  // 2. Initialize the SDK
  self.sdk = [[WhiteSDK alloc] initWithWhiteBoardView:self.boardView config:config commonCallbackDelegate:self.commonDelegate];
  // 3. WhitePlayerConfig, Room UUID and RoomToken are required. For more parameters, see the WhitePlayerConfig.h header file
  WhitePlayerConfig *playerConfig = [[WhitePlayerConfig alloc] initWithRoom:self.roomUuid roomToken:self.roomToken];

  // This is an example of how to do this
  self.combinePlayer = [[WhiteCombinePlayer alloc] initWithMediaUrl:[NSURL URLWithString:@"https://netless-media.oss-cn-hangzhou.aliyuncs.com/c447a98ece45696f09c7fc88f649c082_3002a61acef14e4aa1b0154f734a991d.m3u8"]];

  // Display the AVPlayer screen
  [self.videoView setAVPlayer:self.combinePlayer.nativePlayer];

  // Configure the Delegate
  self.combinePlayer.delegate = self;

  [self.sdk createReplayerWithConfig:playerConfig callbacks:self.eventDelegate completionHandler:^(BOOL success, WhitePlayer * _Nonnull player, NSError * _Nonnull error) {
​    if (self.playBlock) {
​      self.playBlock(player, error);
​    } else if (error) {
​      NSLog(@"Failed to create playback room error:%@", [error localizedDescription]);
​    } else {
​      self.player = player;
​      [self.player addHighFrequencyEventListener:@"a" fireInterval:1000];

​      //Config WhitePlayer
​      self.combinePlayer.whitePlayer = player;
​      //WhitePlayer  need to manually seek to 0 to trigger the buffering behavior
​      [player seekToScheduleTime:0];
​    }

#pragma mark - WhitePlayerEventDelegate

- (void)phaseChanged:(WhitePlayerPhase)phase
  NSLog(@"player %s %ld", __FUNCTION__, (long)phase);
  // Attention! This must be done for the WhiteCombinePlayer to properly synchronize the state
  [self.combinePlayer updateWhitePlayerPhase:phase];

// Other callback methods...

#pragma mark - WhiteCombinePlayerDelegate

- (void)combinePlayerStartBuffering
  //Either end goes into the buffer

- (void)combinePlayerEndBuffering
  //Both ends end buffering


Dynamic PPT local resource pack

Principle: Download all the required dynamic-conversion-zip in advance, use the custom Scheme request supported by WKWebView iOS 11, intercept the WebView request, and return the local resources on the local side.

For specific implementation, please check the Git record:

  1. Dependencies required:add dependency to demo for ppt zip feature
  2. Code implementation:implement local zip

Note that the current demo, realizes the interception, also need to WhiteBaseViewController. M , the WhitePptParams scheme parameter of the to kPPTScheme.


Custom App Plugin

Custom App plugin can extend the whiteboard functionality, users write js code to implement their own whiteboard plugin.

How to Develop Custom Whiteboard App

Register the Custom App plugin

Native side needs to register the corresponding App to the SDK when using the custom App.

The registration method is registerAppWithParams: of WhiteSDk.

where WhiteRegisterAppParams has two ways to generate.

  1. copy the js code to the local project and inject the js string directly. Be careful with this method, you need to provide the variable name in js.
@interface WhiteRegisterAppParams : WhiteObject
/** Create a custom app generated by js code
@param javascriptString js code string
@param kind plug-in type name, needs to be consistent across multiple ends
@param appOptions additional parameters for plugin registration, fill in as needed
@param variable The name of the app variable to be inserted in the above injected javascript
+ (instancetype)paramsWithJavascriptString: (NSString *)javascriptString kind:(NSString *)kind appOptions:(NSDictionary *)appOptions variable:(NSString *)variable;
  1. Provide a download address for the js code, and let sdk do the downloading and injection. Be careful with this method, the App variable lookup will be determined by the kind parameter. Please keep the App variable name in js consistent with kind.
@interface WhiteRegisterAppParams : WhiteObject
/** Create a custom app generated by remote js
@param url js address
@param kind The name of the plugin type, which needs to be consistent across multiple ends. (The whiteboard will use this name to find the app entry)
@param appOptions Additional parameters for plugin registration, fill in as needed
+ (instancetype)paramsWithUrl: (NSString *)url kind:(NSString *)kind appOptions:(NSDictionary *)appOptions;

Adding custom App plugins to the whiteboard

The method to add a custom App is addApp:comletionHandler: of WhiteRoom

where WhiteAppParam is used to describe your custom app

Please call this method to complete the initialization of WhiteAppParam

@interface WhiteAppParam : WhiteObject
/* Specific App, generally used to create custom App insertion parameters
 @param kind The kind used when registering the App
 @param options See [WhiteAppOptions](https://raw.github.com/netless-io/Whiteboard-iOS/master/WhiteAppOptions) for details
 @param attrs Parameters to initialize the App, fill in as needed
- (instancetype)initWithKind:(NSString *)kind options:(WhiteAppOptions *)options attrs:(NSDictionary *)attrs;

Part of the problem

  1. The current SDK keyword is 'White', which is not strictly prefixed by three uppercase letters.
  2. In case of complex content, the WhiteBoard may be killed by the system due to lack of memory, resulting in a white screen, we have restored this situation in version 2.16.30. Before 2.16.30, you can set navigationDelegate of WhiteBoardView to listen to webViewWebContentProcessDidTerminate: method. This method will be called when the whiteboard is killed and you can prompt the user to reconnect to resume the whiteboard in this method.
  3. Due to the possibility of using scenarios, please use conditional references to third-party code, for example #import "YYModel.h" needs to be replaced with #if __has_include(<YYModel/YYModel.h>) #import <YYModel/YYModel.h> .
  4. Starting with version 2.16.63, fpa acceleration is no longer available.
  5. If you previously used YYKit, starting with version 2.16.77, you can replace Whiteboard/Whiteboard-YYKit with Whiteboard. The YYModel code has been Forked to White_YYModel as YYModel no longer supports Xcode 15 integration.
