REComposeViewController

Replicates functionality of SLComposeViewController introduced in iOS 6.0. You can create composers for any social network out there. REComposeViewController doesn't provide logic for sharing, only its visual part.

Requirements

  • Xcode 5 or higher
  • Apple LLVM compiler
  • iOS 5.0 or higher
  • ARC

Demo

Build and run the REComposeViewControllerExample project in Xcode to see REComposeViewController in action.

Installation

CocoaPods

The recommended approach for installating REComposeViewController is via the CocoaPods package manager, as it provides flexible dependency management and dead simple installation. For best results, it is recommended that you install via CocoaPods >= 0.28.0 using Git >= 1.8.0 installed via Homebrew.

Install CocoaPods if not already available:

$ [sudo] gem install cocoapods
$ pod setup

Change to the directory of your Xcode project:

$ cd /path/to/MyProject
$ touch Podfile
$ edit Podfile

Edit your Podfile and add REComposeViewController:

platform :ios, '5.0'
pod 'REComposeViewController', '~> 2.3.1'

Install into your Xcode project:

$ pod install

Open your project in Xcode from the .xcworkspace file (not the usual project file)

$ open MyProject.xcworkspace

Please note that if your installation fails, it may be because you are installing with a version of Git lower than CocoaPods is expecting. Please ensure that you are running Git >= 1.8.0 by executing git --version. You can get a full picture of the installation details by executing pod install --verbose.

Manual Install

All you need to do is drop REComposeViewController files into your project, and add #include "REComposeViewController.h" to the top of classes that will use it.

Example Usage

REComposeViewController *composeViewController = [[REComposeViewController alloc] init];
composeViewController.title = @"Social Network";
composeViewController.hasAttachment = YES;
composeViewController.attachmentImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"Flower.jpg"];
composeViewController.text = @"Hi there!";
[composeViewController presentFromRootViewController];

Set completion handler:

composeViewController.completionHandler = ^(REComposeViewController *composeViewController, REComposeResult result) {
    [composeViewController dismissViewControllerAnimated:YES completion:nil];

    if (result == REComposeResultCancelled) {
        NSLog(@"Cancelled");
    }

    if (result == REComposeResultPosted) {
        NSLog(@"Text: %@", composeViewController.text);
    }
};

Alternatively, you may want to set your controller to conform to REComposeViewControllerDelegate protocol to receive notifications when user cancels / posts.

...
composeViewController.delegate = self;
...
- (void)composeViewController:(REComposeViewController *)composeViewController didFinishWithResult:(REComposeResult)result
{
    [composeViewController dismissViewControllerAnimated:YES completion:nil];

    if (result == REComposeResultCancelled) {
        NSLog(@"Cancelled");
    }

    if (result == REComposeResultPosted) {
        NSLog(@"Text = %@", composeViewController.text);
    }
}

Customization

REComposeViewController navigation bar can be customized via UIAppearance. You use the UIAppearance protocol to get the appearance proxy for a class. You customize the appearance of instances of a class by sending appearance modification messages to the class’s appearance proxy.

Example:

[composeViewController.navigationBar setBackgroundImage:[UIImage imageNamed:@"bg"] forBarMetrics:UIBarMetricsDefault];
composeViewController.navigationItem.leftBarButtonItem.tintColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:60/255.0 green:165/255.0 blue:194/255.0 alpha:1];
composeViewController.navigationItem.rightBarButtonItem.tintColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:29/255.0 green:118/255.0 blue:143/255.0 alpha:1];
