Integrate to Your App

Integrate to Android Platform

The following documents assume that you already have a certain Android development experience.

Quick Start Five Steps

The keys to intergrating Weex into your Android application are the following five step:

  1. Configure Gradle dependency in build.gradle
dependencies {
    // weex sdk and fastjson
    compile 'com.taobao.android:weex_sdk:0.18.0@aar'
    compile 'com.alibaba:fastjson:1.1.46.android'

    //support library dependencies
    compile 'com.android.support:recyclerview-v7:23.1.1'
    compile 'com.android.support:support-v4:23.1.1'
    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.1.1'
  1. Add required permissions in your AndroidManifest.xml
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
  1. Init Weex SDK When Application Create
public class WXApplication extends Application {
  public void onCreate() {
    InitConfig config = new InitConfig.Builder().setImgAdapter(new FrescoImageAdapter()).build();

  1. Create an WXSDKInstance, add IWXRenderListener and activity lifecycle on it. load weex bundle url. when page load success; target view will be send for you on onViewCreated callback, set target view to activity contentView.
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity implements IWXRenderListener {
  WXSDKInstance mWXSDKInstance;
  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    mWXSDKInstance = new WXSDKInstance(this);
    * bundleUrl source http://dotwe.org/vue/38e202c16bdfefbdb88a8754f975454c
    String pageName = "WXSample";
    String bundleUrl = "http://dotwe.org/raw/dist/38e202c16bdfefbdb88a8754f975454c.bundle.wx";
    mWXSDKInstance.renderByUrl(pageName, bundleUrl, null, null,WXRenderStrategy.APPEND_ASYNC);
  public void onViewCreated(WXSDKInstance instance, View view) {
  public void onRenderSuccess(WXSDKInstance instance, int width, int height) {
  public void onRefreshSuccess(WXSDKInstance instance, int width, int height) {
  public void onException(WXSDKInstance instance, String errCode, String msg) {
  protected void onResume() {
  protected void onPause() {
  protected void onStop() {
  protected void onDestroy() {
  1. Run app, start activity, then you will see hello world demo. well done.

Hello World Demo Source

Tip: Click QRCode Image in Demo Source Page, your will see compiled bundle js.

Integrated to iOS

Through the CocoaPods or Carthage integrated Weex iOS SDK to your project. First assume that you have finished installing the iOS development environment and CocoaPods(or Carthage).

Step 1: Add Dependencies

Import Weex iOS SDK to your existing project, if not, you can create a new project according to the tutorial). Before proceeding, make sure that the Podfile file is under the project file. If not, create one and open with text editor(if Carthage, please ensure the Cartfile in your project directory). You can choose one of Integration method.

  • using CocoaPods WeexSDK The latest version on cocoaPods can be obtained here . Add the following to the Podfile file:

    	source 'git@github.com:CocoaPods/Specs.git'
    	target 'YourTarget' do
    	    platform :ios, '7.0'
    	    pod 'WeexSDK', '0.17.0'   ## latest Weex SDK recommended

    Open the command line, switch to the directory of the Podfile file, and run the pod install command. If there are no errors, it means that the environment has been configured.

  • using Carthage here you can get the latest version of WeexSDK. Add github "apache/incubator-weex" to Cartfile Open the command line, switch to the directory of the Cartfile, and run carthage update. Add Carthage build framework to your project

Step 2: Initialize the Weex environment

In the AppDelegate.m file to do the initialization operation, usually in the didFinishLaunchingWithOptions method as follows to add.

//business configuration
[WXAppConfiguration setAppGroup:@"AliApp"];
[WXAppConfiguration setAppName:@"WeexDemo"];
[WXAppConfiguration setAppVersion:@"1.0.0"];
//init sdk environment
[WXSDKEngine initSDKEnvironment];
//register custom module and component,optional
[WXSDKEngine registerComponent:@"MyView" withClass:[MyViewComponent class]];
[WXSDKEngine registerModule:@"event" withClass:[WXEventModule class]];
//register the implementation of protocol, optional
[WXSDKEngine registerHandler:[WXNavigationDefaultImpl new] withProtocol:@protocol(WXNavigationProtocol)];
//set the log level
[WXLog setLogLevel: WXLogLevelAll];

Step 3: Render weex Instance

Weex supports both full page rendering and partial rendering. What you need to do is render Weex's view with the specified URL and add it to its parent container. The parent container is generally a viewController.

#import <WeexSDK/WXSDKInstance.h>
- (void)viewDidLoad
    [super viewDidLoad];
    _instance = [[WXSDKInstance alloc] init];
    _instance.viewController = self;
    _instance.frame = self.view.frame;
    __weak typeof(self) weakSelf = self;
    _instance.onCreate = ^(UIView *view) {
        [weakSelf.weexView removeFromSuperview];
        weakSelf.weexView = view;
        [weakSelf.view addSubview:weakSelf.weexView];
    _instance.onFailed = ^(NSError *error) {
        //process failure
    _instance.renderFinish = ^ (UIView *view) {
        //process renderFinish
    NSURL *url = [[NSBundle mainBundle] URLForResource:@"main" withExtension:@"js"];
    [_instance renderWithURL:url options:@{@"bundleUrl":[self.url absoluteString]} data:nil];

WXSDKInstance is a very important class that provides a basic method and some callbacks, such as renderWithURL, onCreate, onFailed, etc., can be found in WXSDKInstance.h.

Step 4: Destroy Weex Instance

In the dealloc phase of the viewController destroyed Weex instance, can play a role in avoiding memory leaks.

- (void)dealloc
    [_instance destroyInstance];

Build your own WeexSDK.framework and Import to your project.

The Weex SDK can be compiled from the source code. You can try the latest feature in the new feature or bugfix branch.

  • clone Weex project you can use SSH

    	git clone git@github.com:apache/incubator-weex.git

    or use https

    	git clone https://github.com/apache/incubator-weex.git
  • open WeexSDK.xcodeproj in weex/ios/sdk switch target just below img

  • Build this project or just use the xcode default hot key ⌘ + b

  • Finally you can find Products directory in weex/ios/sdk, WeexSDK.framework was here img

  • Add js-framework(which is in the WeexSDK.framework and renamed to native-bundle-main.js) to your main bundle img

  • Import the framework you get above and import system framework img

  • add -ObjC to your project settings,just like this img
