This week, Jordan Zucker, iOS maestro at PubNub, shows us just how simple it is to get PubNub up and running in a brand-new iOS project using CocoaPods. Here’s the rundown:
CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Swift and Objective-C Cocoa projects that makes it super easy to add and update 3rd party libraries in iOS projects. This is by far the best way to load PubNub’s iOS SDK.
Without CocoaPods, adding a 3rd party library to an iOS project can take up to 40 minutes, assuming you know what you’re doing. CocoaPods cuts this down to only 2-3 minutes, so you can spend that time doing something more productive, like building your cool app.
There’s not a whole lot to it, really. Just a few simple steps:
pod installfrom command line within project repository
@property (nonatomic, strong) PubNub *client;
PNObjectEventListenerprotocol to ViewController.m
- (void)client:(PubNub *)client didReceiveMessage:(PNMessageResult *)messagecallback
This is only a simple walkthrough that shows you how to get PubNub up and running with a simple publish-subscribe function. For more in-depth information, visit our docs page for the PubNub iOS SDK. Happy coding!
