The latest version of the JavaScript SDK for Sync is made available on Twilio's CDN. Find the latest release in the Sync JavaScript Changelog. For reference, the JavaScript SDK client library(link takes you to an external page) can be used.

To include the SDK on your web page, simply add the following <script> tag:


_10
<script src="https://sdk.twilio.com/js/sync/releases/3.0.1/twilio-sync.min.js"></script>

The Twilio.Sync namespace will then be available in the window scope of your JavaScript application.

You'll need to provision a token to your application to get started. See our guide Securing your Sync App for more information on token management, or look at one of our Quickstarts to get started from a basic example.

  2. Select File > Add Packages...
  3. Enter https://github.com/twilio/twilio-sync-ios into the search field.
  4. Make your versioning choice and click Add Package .

We also offer the frameworks for direct download. There are several steps you'll need to complete to successfully add Sync to your project:

  4. Expand the downloaded .zip files and locate the .xcframework file(s) inside the directories created.
  5. Drag the .xcframework file(s) into your Xcode project, making sure they are dropped in the Embedded Binaries section of your project target's settings. Make sure you select Copy items if needed when prompted. If the framework file(s) do not appear under Embedded Binaries for your target, you will receive a Reason: image not found error during compilation.
  6. Add libc++.tbd as a dependency to your target in the Linked Frameworks section of the build settings if it is not already there.
