How To Use
First of all you need to launch the
Monitor app on your Mac. It is used to receive and send files from iOS devices and handle all local file management.
Monitor app is launched, you may call one of the following functions on iPhone or iPad:
let bridge = try ResourcesBridge()
Start session and try to connect to
Abort connection and stop session
Wait for connection synchronously
Write resource on Mac
bridge.writeResource(_ resource: Data, at remotePath: String, progressHandler: ((Double) -> Void)? = nil) throws
writefunctions are designed to be synchronous, but you may pass a progress handler that will report progress on other dispatch queue for debug purposes.
remotePathis an absolute path to the file on Mac.
Read resource from Mac
The logic is similar to the
bridge.readResource(at remotePath: String, progressHandler: ((Double) -> Void)? = nil) throws -> Data
In order for
Resources Bridge to work when running on iOS 14, you will have to include two keys in your app's Info.plist file.
The keys are
Privacy - Local Network Usage Description (
Bonjour services (
For the privacy key, include a human-readable description of what benefit the user gets by allowing your app to access devices on the local network.
The Bonjour services key is an array of service types that your app will browse for. For
Resources Bridge, he value of this key should be
If you do not configure the above keys properly, then
Resources Bridge won't work.
This project is based on
Bonjour framework. You can use it for async communication and files transferring between
