Driving ShinobiCharts with ReactiveCocoa

ReactiveCocoa is a popular framework which allows you to build iOS and OSX apps using the functional reactive programming paradigm. This demo project looks at how to use RAC with a web socket client, and how to wire up a ShinobiChart to append data points as they arrive over the websocket.


Building the project

You'll either need to have ShinobiCharts installed on you mac, or you'll have to pull the framework into the ReactiveWikiMonitor project. You can download a free trial of ShinobiCharts from the website.

If you're using the trial then you need to update the following line in SCViewController.m to include the license key you've been sent by email:

self.chart.licenseKey = @"";

The ReactiveCocoa library is available as a CocoaPod, and this repo has a Podfile which will include it as appropriate. Make sure that you've got CocoaPods installed and then run the following command from the repo directory:

pod install

If you need additional help with CocoaPods, including how to get started with installing it, then check out the fantastic help at
