CITA Swift SDK

Travis Swift

English | 简体中文

Native Swift SDK for integrating with CITA.

Features

  • HTTP provider for connecting to CITA networks.
  • Implementation of CITA JSON-RPC API over HTTP.
  • Signer for signing transaction.

RPC API

Refer to docs.nervos.org/cita for a complete list of CITA JSON-RPC API.

Get Started

System Requirements

To build CITA SDK, you'll need:

  • Swift 5 and later
  • Xcode 10.2 and later
  • CocoaPods

Installation

To integrate CITA SDK into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git'
platform :ios, '10.0'

target 'YourTargetName' do
  use_frameworks!

  pod 'CITA', git: 'https://github.com/cryptape/cita-sdk-swift'
end

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install

Development

Fetch the source code:

git clone --recursive https://github.com/cryptape/cita-sdk-swift.git
pod install
cp Tests/Config.example.json Tests/Config.json

Then open CITA.xcworkspace with Xcode and build.

Running Tests

Run tests from CITATests target. Update rpcServer value of Tests/Config.json file if you want to test against another CITA node or chain of your choice. By default http://127.0.0.1:1337 is used.

Note: serveral tests depend on onchain data and would fail when running on your own chain. We're going to improve the tests and fix that in the near future.

web3swift

CITA SDK was initially built upon matterinc/web3swift. Then we want to keep this a simple RPC client and transaction signer (this means no keystore management and other features) so web3swift dependency was removed, but some utils, foundation extensions and HTTP request implementations were taken and modified from it.

Testnet

For test or development, you can follow the CITA document to run a local chain. We also provide a public testnet at http://121.196.200.225:1337 (or use https://node.cryptape.com).

This testnet supports CITA version v0.20.

HTTPProvider

HTTPProvider connects to CITA testnet or any other network. To construct a provider:

import CITA

let testnetUrl = URL(string: "http://121.196.200.225:1337")! // Or use any other network
// let testnetUrl = URL(string: "https://node.cryptape.com")! // Also available
let provider = HTTPProvider(testnetUrl)

CITA

CITA is the class that talks to CITA network through HTTPProvider. Consume any JSON-RPC API with CITA instance's rpc property.

let cita = CITA(provider: provider)
let peerCount = cita.rpc.peerCount().value!

Transaction and Signer

Before sending a raw transaction over JSON-RPC API, create a Transaction object and sign it with private key using Signer:

let privateKey = "0xeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee"
guard let metaData = try? cita.rpc.getMetaData(), let blockNumber = try? cita.rpc.blockNumber() else {
    return
}
let metaData = try? cita.rpc.getMetaData()
let tx = Transaction(
    to: Address("0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000"),
    nonce: UUID().uuidString, // Generate a random/unique nonce string
    quota: 1_000_000, // Use 1,000,000 as default quota for sending a transaction
    validUntilBlock: blockNumber + 88,
    data: Data.fromHex("6060604...")!,
    chainId: metaData.chainId,
    version: metaData.version

)
guard let signed = try? Signer().sign(transaction: tx, with: privateKey) else {
    print("Sign fail")
}

RPC API Reference

All JSON-RPC APIs would return result when the call is successful, or throw CITAError exception when not.

JSON-RPC API functions are synchronous. But the underlying HTTP request might take some time to return, and in this project they're usually implemented in some promise way. It's generally better to call API function in a background queue so it won't block the main thread.

A common flow to call an API and handle the result is as follows.

DispatchQueue.global().async {
    do {
        let peerCount = try cita.rpc.peerCount()
        DispatchQueue.main.async {
            print("CITA peer count: \(count)")
        }
    } catch let error {
        DispatchQueue.main.async {
            print(error.localizedDescription)
        }
    }
}
