GetSocial SDK version 6 is a major update that brings a lot of improvements, new features and breaking changes. Follow the guide below to learn about what changed and how to upgrade to SDK v6.

Important Changes

New:

  • Data API. With GetSocial’s Data API developers can now access the data layer of all our features breaking dependency on our UI and giving them more flexibility.
  • Dynamic Activity Feeds. Developers can now create activity feeds on the fly. They can have a feed per clan, per fraction, per geo, or even level specific.
  • Sticky activities are now Announcements. Developers can now post multiple announcements (announcements are always pinned on top) expiring at different time periods. All their announcements are accessible from one convenient location and can be rescheduled even after they expire.
  • Auto-initialization. Integration just got easier, SDK will automatically initialize with your app, no need to take care of that.

Updated:

  • Simplified API. We, at GetSocial, strive to provide the best integration experience. To achive this we had to rework our public API from scratch, it become easier to use and understand. It won’t be possible without breaking changes, **GetSocial SDK version 6 is not backward compatible with SDK version 5.

Removed:

Upgrading

GetSocial SDK v6 is not backward compatible. The easiest way to upgrade is to remove GetSocial SDK v5 from your project and start with a fresh integration. Detailed steps below:

  1. Contact us at support@getsocial.im or via the support channel in our Dashboard to do the manual migration of your app to the new Dashboard.

  2. Remove GetSocial SDK v5 from your project:
    2.1. If you’re using CocoaPods, remove dependencies to GetSocial SDK in the Podfile. If you did a manual integration, remove GetSocial.embeddedframework and GetSocialChat.embeddedframework from your project.
    2.2. Comment out all usages of GetSocial SDK in the code to avoid compilation errors.

  3. Follow Getting Started Guide to integrate GetSocial iOS SDK v6.

  4. Update commented GetSocial API method calls according to the mapping below.

Method Mappings

In SDK v6 almost all methods are static and all returned objects immutable. For instance, in SDK v5 to get user name you had to call:

1
NSString *name = [[[GetSocial sharedInstance] currentUser] displayName];

In SDK v6 you have to call static method:

1
NSString *name = [GetSocialUser displayName];

Initialization

SDK v5 Method SDK v6 Method
initWithKey:success:failure: SDK is auto-initialized now, details in Getting Started Guide.
isInitialized [GetSocial isInitialized]

User Management

All user management methods in SDK v5 were called on the instance of the GetSocialCurrentUser object, e.g. [[[GetSocial sharedInstance] currentUser] displayName]. In SDK v6 it is not possible to get GetSocialCurrentUser object, instead you can get separate properties via static methods exposed via GetSocialUser class. Learn more in Introduction to GetSocial User Management guide.

SDK v5 Method SDK v6 Method
guid [GetSocialUser userId]
isAnonymous [GetSocialUser isAnonymous]
displayName [GetSocialUser displayName]
setDisplayName:success:failure: [GetSocialUser setDisplayName:success:failure:]
avatarUrl [GetSocialUser avatarUrl]
setAvatarUrl:success:failure: [GetSocialUser setAvatarUrl:success:failure:]
identities [GetSocialUser authIdentities]
hasIdentityForProvider:providerId [[[GetSocialUser authIdentities] allKeys] containsObject:providerId]
userIdForProvider:providerId [[GetSocialUser authIdentities] objectForKey:providerId]
addUserIdentity:complete:failure:conflict: [GetSocialUser addAuthIdentity:success:conflict:failure:]
removeUserIdentityForProvider:success:failure: [GetSocialUser removeAuthIdentityWithProviderId:success:failure:]
followersWithOffset:count:success:failure:
followingWithOffset:count:success:failure:
Following and followers become a one concept - friends, e.g. [GetSocialUser friendsWithOffset:limit:success:failure:]
isFollowingUser:success:failure:
isFollowedByUser:success:failure:
[GetSocialUser isFriend:success:failure:]
followUser:success:failure:, followUserWithProvider:userId:success:failure:, followUserWithGuid:success:failure: [GetSocialUser addFriend:success:failure:]
unfollowUser:success:failure:, unfollowUserWithProvider:userId:success:failure:, unfollowUserWithGuid:success:failure: [GetSocialUser removeFriend:success:failure:]
resetWithSuccess:failure: Removed

Smart Invites

In SDK v6 Invite Provides were renamed to Invite Channels. Moreover, in v6 referral data retrieval is implemented in pull mode, that means that you have to ask for data instead of listening when it will arrive. Learn more in Sending and Receiving Referral Data guide.

SDK v5 Method SDK v6 Method
registerPlugin:provider: [GetSocial registerInviteChannelPlugin:forChannelId:]
getSupportedInviteProviders [GetSocial inviteChannels]
inviteFriendsUsingProvider:withProperties: and setInviteFriendsBlock: were merged [GetSocial sendInviteWithChannelId:inviteContent:customReferralData:success:cancel:failure:]
setOnReferralDataReceivedHandler: [GetSocial referralDataWithSuccess:failure:]

Activity Feed

In SDK v6 it is possible to create Activity Feed dynamically from the SDK. If feed does not exist it will be created dynamically. Learn more in Introduction to GetSocial Activity Feeds.

SDK v5 Method SDK v6 Method
postActivity:withImage:buttonText:action:andTags:success:failure: [GetSocial postActivity:toFeed:success:failure:]

UI

In SDK v6 UI configuration API from code was removed, use JSON file instead. JSON files from SDK v5 are backward compatible with SDK v6. Learn more about UI Customization.

SDK v5 Method SDK v6 Method
[[GetSocial sharedInstance] configuration] setConfiguration] [GetSocialUI loadConfiguration:] and [GetSocial loadDefaultConfiguration]
setOnWindowStateChangedHandler: [[GetSocialUI createInvitesView] setHandlerForViewOpen:close:]
closeView: [GetSocialUI closeView:]
restoreView [GetSocialUI restoreView]
createSmartInviteView [GetSocialUI createInvitesView]
createActivitiesView [GetSocialUI createActivityFeedView:] and [GetSocialUI createGlobalActivityFeedView]
setOnActivityActionClickHandler: [[GetSocialUI createActivityFeedView:] setActionListener:]
createUserListViewWithDismissHandler: Removed
setOnInviteButtonClickHandler: Removed
createNotificationsView Removed
setOnUserAvatarClickHandler: Removed
setOnUserAppClickHandler: Removed
setOnNotificationsChangeHandler: Removed

Other

SDK v5 Method SDK v6 Method
