Makemoji Keyboard Extension

The Makemoji Keyboard Extension allows for quick development of a iOS custom keyboard that is powered by the Makemoji CMS.

You will first need to create a keyboard extension target in your Xcode project.



Xcode will autogenerate a bundle id using this method. Typically its com.yourapp.keyboard

Then add the following to your Podfile for your new target and run pod update

target 'YOUR_KEYBOARD_TARGET' do
    pod "MakemojiSDK-KeyboardExtension"
end

Once the pod is installed, we can modify the auto-generated controller Xcode created to use Makemoji's controller.

In KeyboardViewController.h:

#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
#import "MEKeyboardViewController.h"

@interface KeyboardViewController : MEKeyboardViewController

In KeyboardViewController.m, you'll want to include the following:

#import "KeyboardViewController.h"
#import "MEKeyboardAPIManager.h"

@interface KeyboardViewController ()

@end

@implementation KeyboardViewController

- (id)initWithNibName:(NSString *)nibNameOrNil bundle:(NSBundle *)nibBundleOrNil {
    self = [super initWithNibName:nibNameOrNil bundle:nibBundleOrNil];
    if (self) {
        [[MEKeyboardAPIManager client] setSdkKey:@"YOUR_SDK_KEY"];
        self.shareText = @"Change this text to a link to your app";
    }
    return self;
}

When getting ready to submit your app, you will need to remove the Embed Frameworks step under build phases as this causes a false positive with Apple Submission.
