About

PointerKit is a proof of concept framework to use a pointing device on iOS. This is done via a multipeer connection between a Mac and an iOS device. The pointer movement is captured by the Mac app, after which it's send to the receiving iOS device (over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi).

This project uses PTFakeTouch for faking touches.

Implementing

If you're an app developer, you can add mouse support by compiling and including the PointerKit framework (from RemotePointer.xcworkspace) and adding a couple lines of code to your project:

var manager: PointerManager!

override func viewDidAppear(_ animated: Bool) {
    super.viewDidAppear(animated)
	
    manager = PointerManager(with: self, in: UIApplication.shared.keyWindow!)

    manager.showConnector()
}
