Jitsi Meet SDK for iOS

Build

  1. Install all required dependencies.

  2. xcodebuild -workspace ios/jitsi-meet.xcworkspace -scheme JitsiMeet -destination='generic/platform=iOS' -configuration Release archive

Install

After successfully building Jitsi Meet SDK for iOS, copy ios/sdk/JitsiMeet.framework (if the path points to a symbolic link, follow the symbolic link) and node_modules/react-native-webrtc/ios/WebRTC.framework into your project.

API

JitsiMeet is an iOS framework which embodies the whole Jitsi Meet experience and makes it reusable by third-party apps.

To get started:

  1. Add a JitsiMeetView to your app using a Storyboard or Interface Builder, for example.

  2. Then, once the view has loaded, set the delegate in your controller and load the desired URL:

- (void)viewDidLoad {
  [super viewDidLoad];

  JitsiMeetView *jitsiMeetView = (JitsiMeetView *) self.view;

  jitsiMeetView.delegate = self;
  [jitsiMeetView loadURL:nil];
}

JitsiMeetView class

The JitsiMeetView class is the entry point to the SDK. It a subclass of UIView which renders a full conference in the designated area.

delegate

Property to get/set the JitsiMeetViewDelegate on JitsiMeetView.

defaultURL

Property to get/set the default base URL used to join a conference when a partial URL (e.g. a room name only) is specified to loadURLString:/loadURLObject:. If not set or if set to nil, the default built in JavaScript is used: https://meet.jit.si.

NOTE: Must be set (if at all) before loadURL:/loadURLString: for it to take effect.

pictureInPictureEnabled

Property to get / set whether Picture-in-Picture is enabled. Defaults to YES if delegate implements enterPictureInPicture:; otherwise, NO.

NOTE: Must be set (if at all) before loadURL:/loadURLString: for it to take effect.

welcomePageEnabled

Property to get/set whether the Welcome page is enabled. If NO, a black empty view will be rendered when not in a conference. Defaults to NO.

NOTE: Must be set (if at all) before loadURL:/loadURLString: for it to take effect.

loadURL:NSURL

[jitsiMeetView loadURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"https://meet.jit.si/test123"]];

Loads a specific URL which may identify a conference to join. If the specified URL is nil and the Welcome page is enabled, the Welcome page is displayed instead.

loadURLObject:NSDictionary

[jitsiMeetView loadURLObject:@{
    @"config": @{
        @"startWithAudioMuted": @YES,
        @"startWithVideoMuted": @NO
    },
    @"url": @"https://meet.jit.si/test123"
}];

Loads a specific URL which may identify a conference to join. The URL is specified in the form of an NSDictionary of properties which (1) internally are sufficient to construct a URL (string) while (2) abstracting the specifics of constructing the URL away from API clients/consumers. If the specified URL is nil and the Welcome page is enabled, the Welcome page is displayed instead.

loadURLString:NSString

[jitsiMeetView loadURLString:@"https://meet.jit.si/test123"];

Loads a specific URL which may identify a conference to join. If the specified URL is nil and the Welcome page is enabled, the Welcome page is displayed instead.

Universal / deep linking

In order to support Universal / deep linking, JitsiMeetView offers 2 class methods that you app's delegate should call in order for the app to follow those links.

-  (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application
continueUserActivity:(NSUserActivity *)userActivity
  restorationHandler:(void (^)(NSArray *restorableObjects))restorationHandler
{
  return [JitsiMeetView application:application
               continueUserActivity:userActivity
                 restorationHandler:restorationHandler];
}

And also one of the following:

// See https://developer.apple.com/documentation/uikit/uiapplicationdelegate/1623073-application?language=objc
- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)app
            openURL:(NSURL *)url
            options:(NSDictionary<UIApplicationOpenURLOptionsKey,id> *)options {
  return [JitsiMeetView application:app
                            openURL:url
                            options: options];
}

or

// See https://developer.apple.com/documentation/uikit/uiapplicationdelegate/1623112-application?language=objc
- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application
            openURL:(NSURL *)url
  sourceApplication:(NSString *)sourceApplication
         annotation:(id)annotation
{
  return [JitsiMeetView application:application
                            openURL:url
                  sourceApplication:sourceApplication
                         annotation:annotation];
}

NOTE: The latter is deprecated.

JitsiMeetViewDelegate

This delegate is optional, and can be set on the JitsiMeetView instance using the delegate property.

It provides information about the conference state: was it joined, left, did it fail?

All methods in this delegate are optional.

conferenceFailed

Called when a joining a conference was unsuccessful or when there was an error while in a conference.

The data dictionary contains an "error" key describing the error and a "url" key with the conference URL.

conferenceJoined

Called when a conference was joined.

The data dictionary contains a "url" key with the conference URL.

conferenceLeft

Called when a conference was left.

The data dictionary contains a "url" key with the conference URL.

conferenceWillJoin

Called before a conference is joined.

The data dictionary contains a "url" key with the conference URL.

conferenceWillLeave

Called before a conference is left.

The data dictionary contains a "url" key with the conference URL.

enterPictureInPicture

Called when entering Picture-in-Picture is requested by the user. The app should now activate its Picture-in-Picture implementation (and resize the associated JitsiMeetView. The latter will automatically detect its new size and adjust its user interface to a variant appropriate for the small size ordinarily associated with Picture-in-Picture.)

The data dictionary is empty.

loadConfigError

Called when loading the main configuration file from the Jitsi Meet deployment fails.

The data dictionary contains an "error" key with the error and a "url" key with the conference URL which necessitated the loading of the configuration file.

Picture-in-Picture

JitsiMeetView will automatically adjust its UI when presented in a Picture-in-Picture style scenario, in a rectangle too small to accommodate its "full" UI.

Jitsi Meet SDK does not currently implement native Picture-in-Picture on iOS. If desired, apps need to implement non-native Picture-in-Picture themselves and resize JitsiMeetView.

If pictureInPictureEnabled is set to YES or delegate implements enterPictureInPicture:, the in-call toolbar will render a button to afford the user to request entering Picture-in-Picture.

Dropbox integration

To setup the Dropbox integration, follow these steps:

  1. Add the following to the app's Info.plist and change <APP_KEY> to your Dropbox app key:
<key>CFBundleURLTypes</key>
<array>
  <dict>
    <key>CFBundleURLName</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>CFBundleURLSchemes</key>
    <array>
      <string>db-<APP_KEY></string>
    </array>
  </dict>
</array>
<key>LSApplicationQueriesSchemes</key>
<array>
  <string>dbapi-2</string>
  <string>dbapi-8-emm</string>
</array>
  1. Add the following to the app's AppDelegate:
- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)app
            openURL:(NSURL *)url
            options:(NSDictionary<UIApplicationOpenURLOptionsKey,id> *)options {
  return [JitsiMeetView application:app
                            openURL:url
                            options:options];
}
