An iOS/macOS bridge for sending messages between Swift and JavaScript in UIWebViews, WebViews, WKWebViews. According to Obj-C and JavaScript, and fixxing some bugs.

Installation (iOS & macOS)

Installation with CocoaPods

Add this to your podfile and run pod install to install:

pod 'XHQWebViewJavascriptBridge'

Manual installation

Drag the WebViewJavascriptBridge folder into your project.

In the dialog that appears, uncheck "Copy items into destination group’s folder" and select "Create groups for any folders".

Examples

See the Example/ folder. Open either the iOS or macOS project and hit run to see it in action.

To use a WebViewJavascriptBridge in your own project:

Usage

1) Instantiate WebViewJavascriptBridge with a UIWebView (iOS) or WebView (OSX) ,or WKWebViewJavascriptBridge with a WKWebView:

bridge = WebViewJavascriptBridge.bridge(forWebView: webView!) 
or
bridge = WKWebViewJavascriptBridge.bridge(forWebView: webView!) 

2) Register a handler in Swift, and call a JS handler:

bridge?.registerHandler(handlerName: "Swift Echo", handler: { (data, responseCallback) in
print("Swift Echo called with: (String(describing: data))")
responseCallback(data)
})

bridge?.callHandler(handlerName: "JS Echo", data: nil, responseCallback: { (data) in
print("Swift received response(String(describing: data))")
})

4) Copy and paste setupWebViewJavascriptBridge into your JS:

function setupWebViewJavascriptBridge(callback) {
if (window.WebViewJavascriptBridge) { return callback(WebViewJavascriptBridge); }
if (window.WVJBCallbacks) { return window.WVJBCallbacks.push(callback); }
window.WVJBCallbacks = [callback];
var WVJBIframe = document.createElement('iframe');
WVJBIframe.style.display = 'none';
WVJBIframe.src = 'https://__bridge_loaded__';
document.documentElement.appendChild(WVJBIframe);
setTimeout(function() { document.documentElement.removeChild(WVJBIframe) }, 0)
}

5) Finally, call setupWebViewJavascriptBridge and then use the bridge to register handlers and call Swift handlers:

setupWebViewJavascriptBridge(function(bridge) {

/* Initialize your app here */

bridge.registerHandler('JS Echo', function(data, responseCallback) {
console.log("JS Echo called with:", data)
responseCallback(data)
})
bridge.callHandler('Swift Echo', {'key':'value'}, function responseCallback(responseData) {
console.log("JS received response:", responseData)
})
})

API Reference

Swift API

WebViewJavascriptBridge.bridge(forWebView: webView:UIWebView/WebView) or WKWebViewJavascriptBridge.bridge(forWebView: webView:WKWebView)

Create a javascript bridge for the given web view.

Example:

WebViewJavascriptBridge.bridge(forWebView: webView!) 
WKWebViewJavascriptBridge.bridge(forWebView: webView!) 
bridge.registerHandler(handlerName:String,handler:@escaping WVJBHandler)

Register a handler called handlerName. The javascript can then call this handler with WebViewJavascriptBridge.callHandler("handlerName").

Example:

bridge?.registerHandler(handlerName: "getScreenHeight", handler: { (data, responseCallback) in
            print("ObjC Echo called with: (String(describing: data))")

            responseCallback(UIScreen.main.bounds.size.height)
})

bridge?.registerHandler(handlerName: "log", handler: { (data, responseCallback) in
            print("Log (String(describing: data))")
})
bridge.callHandler(handlerName:String?)
bridge.callHandler(handlerName:String?, data:Any?)
bridge.callHandler(handlerName:String?, data:Any?,responseCallback:WVJBResponseCallback?)

Call the javascript handler called handlerName. If a responseCallback closure is given the javascript handler can respond.

Example:

bridge?.callHandler(handlerName: "testJavascriptHandler", data: ["foo":"before ready"])

bridge.webViewDelegate

Optionally, set a WKNavigationDelegate/UIWebViewDelegate if you need to respond to the web view’s lifecycle events.

bridge.disableJavscriptAlertBoxSafetyTimeout()

UNSAFE. Speed up bridge message passing by disabling the setTimeout safety check. It is only safe to disable this safety check if you do not call any of the javascript popup box functions (alert, confirm, and prompt). If you call any of these functions from the bridged javascript code, the app will hang.

Example:

bridge.disableJavscriptAlertBoxSafetyTimeout();

Javascript API

bridge.registerHandler("handlerName", function(responseData) { ... })

Register a handler called handlerName. The Swift can then call this handler with [bridge callHandler:"handlerName" data:@"Foo"] and [bridge callHandler:"handlerName" data:@"Foo" responseCallback:^(id responseData) { ... }]

Example:

bridge.registerHandler("showAlert", function(data) { alert(data) })
bridge.registerHandler("getCurrentPageUrl", function(data, responseCallback) {
responseCallback(document.location.toString())
})
bridge.callHandler("handlerName", data)
bridge.callHandler("handlerName", data, function responseCallback(responseData) { ... })

Call an Swift handler called handlerName. If a responseCallback function is given the Swift handler can respond.

Example:

bridge.callHandler("Log", "Foo")
bridge.callHandler("getScreenHeight", null, function(response) {
alert('Screen height:' + response)
})
bridge.disableJavscriptAlertBoxSafetyTimeout()

Calling bridge.disableJavscriptAlertBoxSafetyTimeout() has the same effect as calling bridge.disableJavscriptAlertBoxSafetyTimeout() in Swift.

Example:

bridge.disableJavscriptAlertBoxSafetyTimeout()
