Reference

For more detailed code examples take a look into the example app

Twitter

Social.isTwitterSupported()

Returns true or false.
false if no account has been defined (true in the 6.0 simulator) or the iOS Version doesn't support the Social Framework.

Social.twitter({Object} options)

options can have the following keys:

  • text - the status message
  • image - a local/remote path to an image you want to share
  • url - a url you want to share

Each of these options is optional

Social.twitterRequest({Object} options [, {Object} requestParameter])

optionshas the following keys:

  • requestType - can be GET, POST or DELETE
  • url - the url you want to request
  • callbackEvent - optional - default: twitterRequest - how is the event called that is fired after request has succeeded?
  • accountWithIdentifier - Identifier to select which account to request twitter with.

requestParameter is optional, but is build like this:

{
    'screen_name': 'CBeloch'
}

So screen_name is the parameter name / key and CBeloch is the value of the parameter

Social.twitterAccountList()

Returns a list of twiiter accounts. use the EventListener accountList to capture this list.

Social.addEventListener("accountList", function(e){
    Ti.API.info("Accounts:");
    accounts = e.accounts; //accounts
    Ti.API.info(accounts);
});
Social.twitterAccountList();

Facebook

Social.isFacebookSupported()

Returns true or false.
false if no account has been defined (true in the 6.0 simulator) or the iOS Version doesn't support the Social Framework.

Social.facebook({Object} options)

options can have the following keys:

  • text - the status message
  • image - a local/remote path to an image you want to share
  • url - a url you want to share

Each of these options is optional

Social.facebookRequest({Object} options [, {Object} requestParameter])

options has the following keys:

  • requestType - can be GET, POST or DELETE
  • url - the url you want to request
  • appIdKey - the appid of your facebook app
  • permissionsKey - optional - a comma seperated string that contains the required permissions
  • callbackEvent - optional - default: facebookRequest - how is the event called that is fired after request has succeeded?

requestParameter is optional, but is build like this:

{
    fields: 'id,name,devices'
}

So fields is the parameter name / key and id,name,devices is the value of the parameter

Social.grantFacebookPermissions

Before you can send request to the Facebook API, you start by getting the users permissions.

var fbAccount;
Social.grantFacebookPermissions({
    appIdKey:"YOUR_FB_APP_ID",
    permissionsKey: "email" //FB docs: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/login/extended-permissions/
});
Social.addEventListener("facebookAccount", function(e){ 
    fbAccount = e.account; //now you have stored the FB account. You can then request facebook using the below method 
});

Social.requestFacebookWithIdentifier({Object} options [, {Object} requestParameter])

Request Facebook with a specific account.

Social.requestFacebookWithIdentifier({
    requestType:"GET",
    accountWithIdentifier: fbAccount["identifier"], //start by granting facebook permissions 
    url:"https://graph.facebook.com/me",
    callbackEvent: "facebookProfile",
}, {
    fields: 'id,name,location'
});

Social.renewFacebookAccessToken

The accessToken will eventually be invalid, if you store the FB acccount in a App property or storage of some kind. This method can renew the accessToken, and make you able to request Facebook again. This method rely on the same facebookAccount eventlistener, as grantFacebookPermissions.

Social.renewFacebookAccessToken();
