MonkeyKing helps you post messages to Chinese Social Networks, without their buggy SDKs.

MonkeyKing uses the same analysis process of openshare, support share Text, URL, Image, Audio, Video, and File to WeChat, QQ, Alipay or Weibo. MonkeyKing also can post messages to Weibo by webpage. (Note: Audio and Video are specifically for WeChat or QQ, File is only for QQ Dataline)

MonkeyKing also supports OAuth and Mobile payment via WeChat and Alipay!


Swift 4, iOS 8

(For Swift 3, use version 1.3.0)



Example: Share to WeChat (微信):

  1. In your Project Target’s Info.plist, set URL Type, LSApplicationQueriesSchemes as follow:

  2. Register account: // it’s not necessary to do it here, but for convenient

    func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {
        MonkeyKing.registerAccount(.weChat(appID: "xxx", appKey: "yyy", miniAppID: nil))
        return true
  3. If you need to handle call back, add following code:

    func application(_ app: UIApplication, open url: URL, options: [UIApplicationOpenURLOptionsKey : Any] = [:]) -> Bool {
    //func application(_ application: UIApplication, open url: URL, sourceApplication: String?, annotation: Any) -> Bool { // only for iOS 8
        if MonkeyKing.handleOpenURL(url) {
            return true
        return false

    to your AppDelegate.

  4. Prepare your message and ask MonkeyKing to deliver it:

    @IBAction func shareURLToWeChatSession(sender: UIButton) {
        MonkeyKing.registerAccount(.weChat(appID: "xxx", appKey: "yyy", miniAppID: nil)) // you can do it here (just before deliver)
        let message = MonkeyKing.Message.weChat(.session(info: (
            title: "Session",
            description: "Hello Session",
            thumbnail: UIImage(named: "rabbit"),
            media: .url(URL(string: "")!)
        MonkeyKing.deliver(message) { success in
            print("shareURLToWeChatSession success: (success)")

It’s done!


Example: Weibo OAuth

MonkeyKing.oauth(for: .weibo) { (oauthInfo, response, error) -> Void in
    print("OAuthInfo (oauthInfo) error (error)")
    // Now, you can use the token to fetch info.

or, WeChat OAuth for code only

MonkeyKing.weChatOAuthForCode { [weak self] (code, error) in
    guard let code = code else {
    // TODO: fetch info with code

If user don’t have Weibo App installed on their devices then MonkeyKing will use web OAuth:


Example: Alipay

let order = urlString, scheme: nil)
MonkeyKing.deliver(order) { result in
    print("result: (result)")

You need to configure pay.php in remote server. You can find a example about pay.php at Demo project.

Launch WeChat Mini App

let path = "..."
MonkeyKing.launch(.weChat(.miniApp(username: "gh_XXX", path: path, type: .release))) { result in
    switch result {
    case .success:
    case .failure(let error):
        print("error:", error)

Note that username has a gh_ prefix (原始ID).


If you like to use UIActivityViewController for sharing then MonkeyKing has AnyActivity which can help you.

Check the demo for more information.


Using Carthage or CocoaPods.


Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager for Cocoa application. To install the carthage tool, you can use Homebrew.

$ brew update
$ brew install carthage

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

github "nixzhu/MonkeyKing"

Then, run the following command to build the MonkeyKing framework:

$ carthage update

At last, you need to set up your Xcode project manually to add the MonkeyKing framework.

On your application targets’ “General” settings tab, in the “Linked Frameworks and Libraries” section, drag and drop each framework you want to use from the Carthage/Build folder on disk.

On your application targets’ “Build Phases” settings tab, click the “+” icon and choose “New Run Script Phase”. Create a Run Script with the following content:

/usr/local/bin/carthage copy-frameworks

and add the paths to the frameworks you want to use under “Input Files”:


For more information about how to use Carthage, please see its project page.


CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects.

CocoaPods 0.36 adds supports for Swift and embedded frameworks. You can install it with the following command:

$ [sudo] gem install cocoapods

To integrate MonkeyKing into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

source ''
platform :ios, '8.0'

target <Your Target Name> do
    pod 'MonkeyKing'

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install

You should open the {Project}.xcworkspace instead of the {Project}.xcodeproj after you installed anything from CocoaPods.

For more information about how to use CocoaPods, I suggest this tutorial.
