Stream’s SwiftUI SDK gives iOS developers simplified access to all of Stream’s in-app chat API features, making it even easier for teams to iterate on designs and achieve their goals while writing less code.
You can integrate our SDK into any new or existing iOS application, complete with all the features necessary to build a fully-functioning chat app and no need for additional development work outside of SwiftUI.
Want to see how easy it is to use our SwiftUI SDK? Check out the new SwiftUI Chat App tutorial to get started.
Stream SwiftUI Components
You can customize our SwiftUI components to align with your app's preferred look and feel, or mix and match your custom components with our own if you want more control.
Whether you need to tweak a component or two or you want to control every aspect of your chat experience, our SwiftUI SDK has you covered.
Still using UIKit? No worries. Stream still supports and regularly updates UIKit.
Easy Integration and Flexibility
We built the SwiftUI SDK on our existing lower-level iOS SDK with seamless integration and flexibility in mind.
Right from the start, you will get support for real-time event handling, offline support, optimistic UI updates, push notifications, and more.
For an under-the-hood look at what the SwiftUI SDK has to offer, be sure to check out the SwiftUI SDK documentation.
