REComposeViewController

Replicates functionality of SLComposeViewController introduced in iOS 6.0. You can create composers for any social network out there. REComposeViewController doesn't provide logic for sharing, only its visual part.

Requirements

  • Xcode 4.5 or higher
  • Apple LLVM compiler
  • iOS 5.0 or higher
  • ARC

Demo

Build and run the REComposeViewControllerExample project in Xcode to see REComposeViewController in action.

Installation

via CocoaPods

The recommended approach for installating REComposeViewController is via the CocoaPods package manager, as it provides flexible dependency management and dead simple installation.

Install CocoaPods if not already available:

$ [sudo] gem install cocoapods
$ pod setup

Edit your Podfile and add REComposeViewController:

$ edit Podfile
platform :ios, '5.0'
pod 'REComposeViewController', '~> 2.0'

Install into your Xcode project:

$ pod install

Simple Install

All you need to do is drop REComposeViewController files into your project, and add #include "REComposeViewController.h" to the top of classes that will use it.

Example Usage

REComposeViewController *composeViewController = [[REComposeViewController alloc] init];
composeViewController.title = @"Social Network";
composeViewController.hasAttachment = YES;
composeViewController.attachmentImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"Flower.jpg"];
composeViewController.text = @"Hi there!";
[composeViewController presentFromRootViewController];

Set completion handler:

composeViewController.completionHandler = ^(REComposeViewController *composeViewController, REComposeResult result) {
    [composeViewController dismissViewControllerAnimated:YES completion:nil];

    if (result == REComposeResultCancelled) {
        NSLog(@"Cancelled");
    }

    if (result == REComposeResultPosted) {
        NSLog(@"Text = %@", composeViewController.text);
    }
};

Alternatively, you may want to set your controller to conform to REComposeViewControllerDelegate protocol to receive notifications when user cancels / posts.

...
composeViewController.delegate = self;
...
- (void)composeViewController:(REComposeViewController *)composeViewController didFinishWithResult:(REComposeResult)result
{
    [composeViewController dismissViewControllerAnimated:YES completion:nil];

    if (result == REComposeResultCancelled) {
        NSLog(@"Cancelled");
    }

    if (result == REComposeResultPosted) {
        NSLog(@"Text = %@", composeViewController.text);
    }
}

Customization

REComposeViewController navigation bar can be customized via UIAppearance. You use the UIAppearance protocol to get the appearance proxy for a class. You customize the appearance of instances of a class by sending appearance modification messages to the class’s appearance proxy.

Example:

[composeViewController.navigationBar setBackgroundImage:[UIImage imageNamed:@"bg"] forBarMetrics:UIBarMetricsDefault];
composeViewController.navigationItem.leftBarButtonItem.tintColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:60/255.0 green:165/255.0 blue:194/255.0 alpha:1];
composeViewController.navigationItem.rightBarButtonItem.tintColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:29/255.0 green:118/255.0 blue:143/255.0 alpha:1];
