Make a note of Below Points Before Making a Start#

PART I - SDK License Key#

Before moving forward with CONTUS MirrorFly Chat SDK integration, it is necessary for an SDK to be authenticated by the MirrorFly server using the license key for further processing.

The below given is the process that needs to be followed to obtain a license key:

Step 1: Get started - Signup into MirrorFly Console page (https://console.mirrorfly.com/register) and create a free MirrorFly account

PART II - Integrate Chat SDK into Your Web App#

CONTUS MirrorFly Chat for JavaScript, makes the in-app chat development process easy with all the essential messaging features

Since it’s the core of all the languages - Importing JavaScript into the application is the fundamental step to proceed further before using any language.

Chat SDK Integration for Javascript#

Step 1: To download the files from the JavaScript SDKs, click on the Download button, that will take you to the top of this guided documentation page.

Step 2: Click on the given Download button and extract the files from the downloaded zip file and copy them into your application.

Step 3: Once the file has been copied, include the script file into your index.html

<script src="./index.js"></script>
<script src="./socket.io.js"></script>

Step 4: Now you have the SDK object available in your application to proceed further with initialization.

Step 5: Once, you have successfully got the SDK into your application. It’s time to go with your client’s preferred language implementation.

Chat SDK Integration for React#

Step 1: Include script file into your index.html

<script src="./index.js"></script>
<script src="./socket.io.js"></script>

Step 2: Create a new file SDK.js in the project root and paste the below code,

const SDK = window.SDK;
export default SDK;

Step 3: Import the SDK into your application

import SDK from "./SDK";

Chat SDK Integration for React Native#

With MirrorFly React Native, make sure that you install all the below mentioned peer dependencies with their specific versions.

  • react-native - Any version
  • @react-native-async-storage/async-storage - Any version
  • react-native-get-random-values - must use version >=1.7.1

Step 1: Copy all the extracted files from the dist folder.

Step 2: Create a new folder inside your project and paste all the copied files into it.

Step 3: Create a file SDK.js to export the SDK Objects. Furthermore, can use the below given codes to import the SDKs,

import './index';
const SDK = window.SDK;
export default SDK;

Chat SDK Integration for Angular#

note

Minimum Requirement Angular version 8.3.29

Step 1: Copy all the extracted files from the SDK folder.

Step 2: Create a new folder inside your project's Root folder and paste all the copied files into it.

Step 3: Open your angular.json and search for the property by navigating the buttons : build => options => scripts.

Step 4: Here, you can find the array of scripts wherein you can add the relative file paths of respective downloaded SDK JS files.

Step 5: Now, add the below codes in the Root component (before @Component Decorator).

declare var SDK: any;

Step 6: Once you have added the SDK into Root component’s ngOnInit, initialize our SDKs within angular's initialization method.

PART III - Terminology#

The below are the common keywords/terminologies used in SDKs with their descriptions

KeywordDescription
userIdUnique ID assigned for each user Ex: 12345678 (any alphanumeric). The below characters is not allowed in userId: U+0022 (") U+0026 (&) U+0027 (') U+002F (/) U+003A (:) U+003C (<) U+003E (>) U+0040 (@) userID should follow below specification: https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0106.html
userJiduserID+@+domain of the chat server Ex. 12345678@xmpp.chatsystem.dev.contus.us
groupJidUnique ID assigned for each group Ex: group123456 (any alphanumeric). GroupJID = groupID +@mix.+domain of the chat server Ex: group123456@mix.xmpp.mirrorfly.dev.contus.us`

Initialize Chat SDK#

To begin with the initialization process of the chat SDK you are required to have certain data that responds to the changes in the connection status in the client's app.

Now, paste the license key on the licensekey param and use the below given method to pass these data through the SDK for further processing.

note

You can find the sandbox server details in the further Sandbox section for testing purposes.

const initializeObj = {
apiBaseUrl: `API_URL`,
licenseKey: `LICENSE_KEY`,
isTrialLicenseKey: `TRIAL_MODE`,
callbackListeners: {},
};
await SDK.initializeSDK(initializeObj);

Request Params#

ArgumentsDescriptionTypeRequired
apiBaseUrlAPI Base URL for BackendStringtrue
licenseKeyMirrorfly's License KeyStringtrue
isTrialLicenseKeyif true Trial Mode will be EnabledBooleanfalse
callbackListenersCheck here for callback listernersObjecttrue

Response Params#

ArgumentsDescriptionType
statusCodeStatus CodeNumber
messageSuccess/Error MessageString

Sandbox Details#

function connectionListener(response) {
if (response.status === "CONNECTED") {
console.log("Connection Established");
} else if (response.status === "DISCONNECTED") {
console.log("Disconnected");
}
}
const initializeObj = {
apiBaseUrl: "https://api-preprod-sandbox.mirrorfly.com/api/v1",
licenseKey: "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX",
isTrialLicenseKey: true,
callbackListeners: {
connectionListener
},
};
await SDK.initializeSDK(initializeObj);
note

To learn more about callback listeners, go to the Callback Event Listener Section.

Example Response#

{
"statusCode": 200,
"message": "Success"
}

PART IV - Create a User#

Register User#

Step 1: You can use the below given method to register a new user.

Step 2: Once you are registered, you will be provided with a username and password that you can utilize to make the connection with the server via connect method.

await SDK.register(`USER_IDENTIFIER`);

Request Params#

StatusDescriptionTypeRequired
USER_IDENTIFIERUnique Id to Register the UserStringtrue

Response Params#

ArgumentsDescriptionType
statusCodeStatus CodeNumber
messageSuccess/Error MessageString
dataUsername and PasswordObject

Sample Response:#

{
statusCode: 200,
message: "Success",
data: {
username: "123456789",
password: "987654321"
}
}
caution

username is the unique id that allows you to connect with other users to send or receive messages.

Connect to MirrorFly Server#

Step 1: You can use the credentials that you have obtained while registration to make the connection with the server.

Step 2: Once you have created the connection successfully, you will be responded with an approval message as ‘statusCode of 200’ or else will get an execution error.

Step 3: With this you can also trace the connection status that you receive in connectionListener callback function.

Step 4: If you face any error while making a connection with the server, you will receive an error message with callback.

await SDK.connect(`USERNAME`, `PASSWORD`);

Request Params#

StatusDescriptionTypeRequired
USERNAMEUsernameStringtrue
PASSWORDPasswordStringtrue

Response Params#

ArgumentsDescriptionType
statusCodeStatus CodeNumber
messageSuccess/Error MessageString
note

To learn more about all possible logins and profile related setup, go to Profile Section.

PART V - Send a Message#

Finally, to send a message to another user you can use the below given method,

note

You can use the const userJid = SDK.getJid(USER_ID) method, to generate a JID for any user.

await SDK.sendTextMessage(`TO_USER_JID`, `MESSAGE_BODY`);

PART VI - Receive a Message#

To receive a message from another user you must implement the messageListener function. It’s a function that will be triggered whenever you receive a new message or related event in one-to-one or group chat. Further to initialize the SDK, you need to add the below callback method during the process.

function messageListener(response) {
console.log("Message Listener", response);
}
