CONTUS MirrorFly Chat SDK with its robust features and functionalities makes the integration more efficient and easy for every client’s app.
On client-side implementation, our chat SDK allows you to initialize and configure the chat easily. On server-side implementation, we ensure the most reliable infra-management services for the chat within the app.
This guided documentation here demonstrates the process as how to install the chat SDK in your app so that you can send and receive the messages without any interruption within a few simple steps.
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 2: While creating an account you can provide your basic details that includes your name, organization details, work email, and contact number
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
react-native-document-picker- must use version >=8.1.1
Step 1: Update all your packages.json files.
Step 2: Check your packages files have any duplicate
if it is not working in iOS.
Step 3: Copy all the extracted files from the
Step 4: Create a new folder inside your project and paste all the copied files into it.
Step 5: Create a file SDK.js to export the SDK Objects. Furthermore, can use the below given codes to import the SDKs,
The below are the common keywords/terminologies used in SDKs with their descriptions
|Unique 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|
|userID+@+domain of the chat server Ex. firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Unique ID assigned for each group Ex: group123456 (any alphanumeric). GroupJID = groupID +@mix.+domain of the chat server Ex: email@example.com`|
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.
You can find the sandbox server details in the further Sandbox section for testing purposes.
|apiBaseUrl||API Base URL for Backend||String||true|
|licenseKey||Mirrorfly's License Key||String||true|
|callbackListeners||Check here for callback listerners||Object||true|
licenseKey details can get it from the 'Overview' section in the mirrorfly Console dashboard.
To learn more about callback listeners, go to the Callback Event Listener Section.
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.
|Unique Id to Register the User||String||true|
|data||Username and Password||Object|
username is the unique id that allows you to connect with other users to send or receive messages.
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.

Finally, to send a message to another user you can use the below given method,
You can use the
const userJid = SDK.getJid(USER_ID) method, to generate a JID for any user.
|JID of the To User. username + "@" + xmppSocketHost||JID String||true|
|Text Message Body||String||true|
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.
