Last updated: 2020-03-13 16:07:29PDF
This document describes how to quickly integrate the Tencent Cloud IM SDK (Mac) into your projects. To configure and integrate the SDK, follow these steps.
Development Environment Requirements
- Xcode 9.0+.
- Mac device running OS X 10.10 or later.
- The project has been configured with a valid developer signature.
Integrating the IM SDK
You can either automatically integrate the IM SDK by using CocoaPods, or manually download the SDK and import it to your current project.
Automatically loading CocoaPods
1. Install CocoaPods
Run the following command in a terminal window (you need to install the Ruby environment on your Mac device in advance):
sudo gem install cocoapods
2. Create a Podfile
Navigate to the path where the project is located and run the following command. Then, a Podfile will appear under the project path.
3. Edit the Podfile
Edit the Podfile as follows:
platform :macos, '10.10' source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git' target 'mac_test' do pod 'TXIMSDK_Mac' end
4. Update and install the SDK
Run the following command in a terminal window to update the local library file and install TXIMSDK_Mac:
Alternatively, run the following command to update the local library version:
After the pod command is executed, a project file integrated with the SDK and suffixed .xcworkspace will be generated. Double-click the file to open it.
1. Obtain the SDK download URL from Github:
- ImSDKForMac.framework is the core dynamic library file of the IM SDK.
|Pack Name||Description||ipa Increment|
|ImSDKForMac.framework||IM feature pack||1.4 MB|
2. Create a project
Create a project:
Enter a project name:
2. Integrate the IM SDK
Add the dependent library: select the Target of Demo. On the General panel, add the dependent library under Embedded Binaries and Linked Frameworks and Libraries.
Add the dependent library:
You need to add
-ObjCin Build Setting > Other Linker Flags.
Referencing the IM SDK
Use the SDK in project code in two ways:
Method 1: Navigate to Xcode > Build Setting > Header Search Paths, and set the ImSDKForMac.framework/Headers path. In files that require the SDK API, directly reference the header file "ImSDK.h".
Method 2: in the files that require the SDK API, import the header file <ImSDKForMac/ImSDK.h>.
