An XMPP Framework in Objective-C for the Mac and iOS development community.


XMPPFramework provides a core implementation of RFC-3920 (the XMPP standard), along with the tools needed to read & write XML. It comes with multiple popular extensions (XEP's), all built atop a modular architecture, allowing you to plug-in any code needed for the job. Additionally the framework is massively parallel and thread-safe. Structured using GCD, this framework performs well regardless of whether it's being run on an old iPhone, or on a 12-core Mac Pro. (And it won't block the main thread... at all)


The minimum deployment target is iOS 8.0 / macOS 10.9.


The easiest way to install XMPPFramework is using CocoaPods. Remember to add to the top of your Podfile the use_frameworks! line (even if you are not using swift):

This will install the whole framework with all the available extensions:

pod 'XMPPFramework', '~> 3.7.0'

After pod install open the .xcworkspace and import:

import XMPPFramework      // swift
@import XMPPFramework;   //objective-c


Carthage is currently not supported because it's blocking on the following dependencies:
