CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects and is our recommended method of installing PusherPlatform and its dependencies.

If you don’t already have the Cocoapods gem installed, run the following command:

$ gem install cocoapods

Then run pod init to create your Podfile (if you don’t already have one).

Next, add the following lines to it:

source ''
platform :ios, '10.0' # change this if you're not making an iOS app!

# Replace `<Your Target Name>` with your app's target name.
target '<Your Target Name>' do
  pod 'PusherPlatform'

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install

If you find that you’re not having the most recent version installed when you run pod install then try running:

$ pod repo update
$ pod install

Also you’ll need to make sure that you’ve not got the version of PusherPlatform locked to an old version in your Podfile.lock file.


Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that automates the process of adding frameworks to your Cocoa application.

You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:

$ brew update
$ brew install carthage

To integrate PusherPlatform into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "pusher/pusher-platform-swift"

Directly using a framework


Getting started

First we need to have an instance of an Instance. To create an Instance we need to pass in a locator, serviceName, and serviceVersion. You can get your instance locator from the dashboard.

let instance = Instance(locator: "instanceLocator", serviceName: "service-name", serviceVersion: "service-version")

The Instance instance allows you to interact with the service using the Elements protocol. The high level methods it exposes are:

  • request and requestWithRetry for standard HTTP requests
  • subscribe for subscriptions
  • subscribeWithResume for subscriptions that you can resume from the last received event ID


There are a set of tests for the library that can be run using the standard method (Command-U in Xcode).

The tests also get run on Bitrise.
