Accelerator Sample App for iOS

Quick start

This app is built using accelerator-core-ios and the following accelerator packs:

Install the project files

Use CocoaPods to install the project files and dependencies.

  1. Install CocoaPods as described in CocoaPods Getting Started.
  2. In Terminal, cd to your project directory and type pod install. (Sometimes, pod update is magical)
  3. Reopen your project in Xcode using the new *.xcworkspace file.

Configure and build the app

Configure the sample app code. Then, build and run the app.

  1. The application requires values for API Key, Session ID, and Token. In the sample, you can get these values at the OpenTok Developer Dashboard. For production deployment, you must generate the Session ID and Token values using one of the OpenTok Server SDKs.

  2. Replace the following empty strings with the corresponding API Key, Session ID, and Token values:

    - (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {
        self.acceleratorSession = [[OTAcceleratorSession alloc] initWithOpenTokApiKey:<#apikey#>
                                                                            sessionId:<#sessionid#>
                                                                                token:<#token#>];
        return YES;
    }
     func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {
        
        session = OTAcceleratorSession.init(openTokApiKey: <#apikey#>, sessionId: <#sessionid#>, token: <#token#>)
        return true
    }
  3. Use Xcode to build and run the app on an iOS simulator or device.

Exploring the code

This section shows you how to prepare, build, and run the sample application. Example code is added in Objective-C and Swift. With the sample application you can:

For details about developing with the SDK and the APIs this sample uses, see the OpenTok iOS SDK Requirements and the OpenTok iOS SDK Reference.

NOTE: This sample app collects anonymous usage data for internal TokBox purposes only. Please do not modify or remove any logging code from this sample application.

###Call

When the call button is pressed OTMultiPartyCommunicator initiates the connection to the OpenTok session and sets up the listeners for the publisher and subscriber streams:

// start call
[SVProgressHUD show];
__weak MainViewController *weakSelf = self;
[self.multipartyCommunicator connectWithHandler:^(OTCommunicationSignal signal, OTMultiPartyRemote *subscriber, NSError *error) {
    if (!error) {
        [weakSelf handleCommunicationSignal:signal remote:subscriber];
    }
    else {
        [SVProgressHUD showErrorWithStatus:error.localizedDescription];
    }
}];
// start call
SVProgressHUD.show()
multipartyCommunicator.connect {
    [unowned self] (signal, remote, error) in
    
    guard error == nil else {
        SVProgressHUD.showError(withStatus: error!.localizedDescription)
        return
    }
    self.handleCommunicationSignal(signal, remote: remote)
}

The remote connection to the subscriber is handled according to the signal obtained:

- (void)handleCommunicationSignal:(OTCommunicationSignal)signal
                        remote:(OTMultiPartyRemote *)remote {
    switch (signal) {
        case OTPublisherCreated: {  // join a call
            [SVProgressHUD popActivity];
            self.multipartyCommunicator.publisherView.showAudioVideoControl = NO;
            [self.mainView enableControlButtonsForCall:YES];
            [self.mainView connectCallHolder:self.multipartyCommunicator.isCallEnabled];
            [self.mainView addPublisherView:self.multipartyCommunicator.publisherView];
            break;
        }
        case OTSubscriberCreated: { // one participant is ready to join
            [SVProgressHUD show];
        }
        case OTSubscriberReady: {   // one participant joins
            [SVProgressHUD popActivity];
            if (![self.subscribers containsObject:remote]) {
                [self.subscribers addObject:remote];
                [self.mainView updateSubscriberViews:self.subscribers
                                       publisherView:self.multipartyCommunicator.publisherView];
            }
            break;
        }
        case OTSubscriberDestroyed:{    // one participant leaves
            if ([self.subscribers containsObject:remote]) {
                [self.subscribers removeObject:remote];
                [self.mainView updateSubscriberViews:self.subscribers
                                       publisherView:self.multipartyCommunicator.publisherView];
            }
            break;
        }
        ...
    }
}
fileprivate func handleCommunicationSignal(_ signal: OTCommunicationSignal, remote: OTMultiPartyRemote?) {
    switch signal {
    case .publisherCreated: // join a call
        
        guard let multipartyCommunicator = multipartyCommunicator else {break}
        SVProgressHUD.popActivity()
        multipartyCommunicator.publisherView.showAudioVideoControl = false
        mainView.enableControlButtonsForCall(enabled: true)
        mainView.connectCallHolder(connected: multipartyCommunicator.isCallEnabled)
        mainView.addPublisherView(multipartyCommunicator.publisherView)
        
    case .subscriberReady:  // one participant joins
        SVProgressHUD.popActivity()
        if let remote = remote, subscribers.index(of: remote) == nil {
            subscribers.append(remote)
            mainView.updateSubscriberViews(subscribers, publisherView: multipartyCommunicator?.publisherView)
        }
        
    case .subscriberDestroyed:  // one participant leaves
        if let remote = remote, let index = subscribers.index(of: remote) {
            subscribers.remove(at: index)
            mainView.updateSubscriberViews(subscribers, publisherView: multipartyCommunicator?.publisherView)
        }
        ...
    }
}

TextChat

The TextCHat feature is built using accelerator-textchat-ios. When the text message button is pressed the view changes to present the chat UI:

- (IBAction)textMessageButtonPressed:(id)sender {
    [self presentViewController:[[TextChatTableViewController alloc] init] animated:YES completion:nil]; //When the text message button is pressed the view changes to present the chat UI
}

The textchat logic and UI is pre-configured, you can also change properties like textChatNavigationBar.topItem.title and alias in TextChatTableViewController:

- (void)viewDidLoad {
    [super viewDidLoad];
    
    self.textChat = [[OTTextChat alloc] init];
    self.textChat.dataSource = self;
    self.textChat.alias = @"Tokboxer";
    self.textMessages = [[NSMutableArray alloc] init];
    
    self.textChatNavigationBar.topItem.title = self.textChat.alias;
    self.tableView.textChatTableViewDelegate = self;
    self.tableView.separatorStyle = UITableViewCellSeparatorStyleNone;
    self.textChatInputView.textField.delegate = self;
    
    __weak TextChatTableViewController *weakSelf = self;
    [self.textChat connectWithHandler:^(OTTextChatConnectionEventSignal signal, OTConnection *connection, NSError *error) {
        if (signal == OTTextChatConnectionEventSignalDidConnect) {
            NSLog(@"Text Chat starts");
        }
        else if (signal == OTTextChatConnectionEventSignalDidDisconnect) {
            NSLog(@"Text Chat stops");
        }
    } messageHandler:^(OTTextChatMessageEventSignal signal, OTTextMessage *message, NSError *error) {
        
        if (signal == OTTextChatMessageEventSignalDidSendMessage || signal == OTTextChatMessageEventSignalDidReceiveMessage) {
            
            if (!error) {
                [weakSelf.textMessages addObject:message];
                [weakSelf.tableView reloadData];
                weakSelf.textChatInputView.textField.text = nil;
                [weakSelf scrollTextChatTableViewToBottom];
            }
        }
    }];
    
    [self.textChatInputView.sendButton addTarget:self action:@selector(sendTextMessage) forControlEvents:UIControlEventTouchUpInside];
}
override func viewDidLoad() {
    super.viewDidLoad()
    
    textChat = OTTextChat()
    textChat?.dataSource = self
    textChat?.alias = "Toxboxer"
    
    textChatNavigationBar.topItem?.title = textChat?.alias
    tableView.textChatTableViewDelegate = self
    tableView.separatorStyle = .none
    textChatInputView.textField.delegate = self
    
    textChat?.connect(handler: { (signal, connection, error) in
        
        guard error == nil else {
            SVProgressHUD.showError(withStatus: error!.localizedDescription)
            return
        }
        
        if signal == .didConnect {
            print("Text Chat starts")
        }
        else if signal == .didDisconnect {
            print("Text Chat stops")
        }
        
    }) { [unowned self](signal, message, error) in
        
        guard error == nil, let message = message else {
            SVProgressHUD.showError(withStatus: error!.localizedDescription)
            return
        }
        
        self.textMessages.append(message)
        self.tableView.reloadData()
        self.textChatInputView.textField.text = nil
        self.scrollTextChatTableViewToBottom()
    }
    
    textChatInputView.sendButton.addTarget(self, action: #selector(TextChatTableViewController.sendTextMessage), for: .touchUpInside)
}

###ScreenShare

The screen share features shares images from your camera roll using the ScreenShareViewController class which publishes the content.

- (void)startScreenSharing {
    self.multipartyScreenSharer = [[OTMultiPartyCommunicator alloc] initWithView:self.annotationView];
    self.multipartyScreenSharer.dataSource = self;
    
    // publishOnly here is to avoid subscripting to those who already subscribed
    self.multipartyScreenSharer.publishOnly = YES;
    
    __weak ScreenShareViewController *weakSelf = self;
    [self.multipartyScreenSharer connectWithHandler:^(OTCommunicationSignal signal, OTMultiPartyRemote *subscriber, NSError *error) {
        
        if (error) {
            [weakSelf dismissViewControllerAnimated:YES completion:^(){
                [SVProgressHUD showErrorWithStatus:error.localizedDescription];
            }];
            return;
        }
        
        if (signal == OTPublisherCreated) {
            
            weakSelf.multipartyScreenSharer.publishAudio = NO;
            [weakSelf startAnnotation];
        }
    }];
}
fileprivate func startScreenSharing() {
    multipartyScreenSharer = OTMultiPartyCommunicator.init(view: annotationView)
    multipartyScreenSharer?.dataSource = self
    
    // publishOnly here is to avoid subscripting to those who already subscribed
    multipartyScreenSharer?.isPublishOnly = true
    
    multipartyScreenSharer?.connect {
        [unowned self](signal, remote, error) in
        
        guard error == nil else {
            self.dismiss(animated: true) {
                SVProgressHUD.showError(withStatus: error!.localizedDescription)
            }
            return
        }
        
        if signal == .publisherCreated {
            self.multipartyScreenSharer?.isPublishAudio = false
            self.startAnnotation()
        }
    }
}

###Annotation

The ScreenShareViewController class also handles local annotation:

The beta version is unstable when it comes to work with cross-platform, it's much stable if two canvas has same aspect ratio. For more information, please contact us.

- (void)startAnnotation {
    self.annotator = [[OTAnnotator alloc] init];
    self.annotator.dataSource = self;
    __weak ScreenShareViewController *weakSelf = self;
    [self.annotator connectWithCompletionHandler:^(OTAnnotationSignal signal, NSError *error) {
        if (error) {
            [weakSelf dismissViewControllerAnimated:YES completion:^(){
                [SVProgressHUD showErrorWithStatus:error.localizedDescription];
            }];
            return;
        }
        
        if (signal == OTAnnotationSessionDidConnect) {
            
            // using frame and self.view to contain toolbarView is for having more space to interact with color picker
            [weakSelf.annotator.annotationScrollView initializeToolbarView];
            weakSelf.annotator.annotationScrollView.toolbarView.toolbarViewDataSource = self;
            weakSelf.annotator.annotationScrollView.toolbarView.frame = weakSelf.annotationToolbarView.frame;
            [weakSelf.view addSubview:weakSelf.annotator.annotationScrollView.toolbarView];
            
            weakSelf.annotator.annotationScrollView.frame = weakSelf.annotationView.bounds;
            weakSelf.annotator.annotationScrollView.scrollView.contentSize = CGSizeMake(CGRectGetWidth(weakSelf.annotator.annotationScrollView.bounds), CGRectGetHeight(weakSelf.annotator.annotationScrollView.bounds));
            [weakSelf.annotationView addSubview:weakSelf.annotator.annotationScrollView];
            
            weakSelf.annotator.annotationScrollView.annotatable = NO;
        }
    }];
}
fileprivate func startAnnotation() {
    annotator = OTAnnotator()
    annotator?.dataSource = self
    annotator?.connect {
        [unowned self] (signal, error) in
        
        guard error == nil else {
            self.dismiss(animated: true) {
                SVProgressHUD.showError(withStatus: error!.localizedDescription)
            }
            return
        }
        
        if signal == .sessionDidConnect {
            
            guard let annotator = self.annotator,
                    let toolbarView = annotator.annotationScrollView.toolbarView else {
                print("Error on launching annotation")
                return
            }
            
            // using frame and self.view to contain toolbarView is for having more space to interact with color picker
            self.annotator?.annotationScrollView.initializeToolbarView()
            toolbarView.toolbarViewDataSource = self
            toolbarView.frame = self.annotationToolbarView.frame
            self.view.addSubview(toolbarView)

            annotator.annotationScrollView.frame = self.annotationView.bounds;
            annotator.annotationScrollView.scrollView.contentSize = CGSize(width: CGFloat(annotator.annotationScrollView.bounds.width), height: CGFloat(annotator.annotationScrollView.bounds.height))
            self.annotationView.addSubview(annotator.annotationScrollView)
            
            annotator.annotationScrollView.isAnnotatable = false
        }
    }
}
