MonkeyKing helps you post SNS messages to Chinese Social Networks, without their buggy SDKs.

MonkeyKing uses the same analysis process of openshare. We also use some reverse engineering tools such as Hopper Disassembler to unveil several undocumented authentication mechanisms under the hood. It supports sharing Text, URL, Image, Audio, Video, and File to WeChat, QQ, Alipay or Weibo. MonkeyKing can also post messages to Weibo by a web page. (Note: Audio and Video are exclusive to WeChat or QQ, and File is exclusive to QQ Dataline)

MonkeyKing also supports OAuth and Mobile payment via WeChat and Alipay!


Swift 5, iOS 9

(For Swift 4.2, use version 1.13.0)

(For Swift 4.1/4.0, use version 1.11.0)

(For Swift 3, use version 1.3.0)



Example: Share to WeChat (微信):

  1. In your Project Target's Info.plist, set URL Type, LSApplicationQueriesSchemes as follow:

    You should also add weixinULAPI once you enabled Universal Link of your WeChat App.

  2. Register account: // it's not necessary to do it here, but for the sake of convenience

    func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {
                appID: "xxx",
                appKey: "yyy",
                miniAppID: nil,
                universalLink: nil // FIXME: You have to adopt Universal Link otherwise your app name becomes "Unauthorized App"(未验证应用)...
        return true
  3. Append the following code to handle callbacks:

    // AppDelegate.swift
    func application(_ app: UIApplication, open url: URL, options: [UIApplicationOpenURLOptionsKey : Any] = [:]) -> Bool {
    //func application(_ application: UIApplication, open url: URL, sourceApplication: String?, annotation: Any) -> Bool { // only for iOS 8
        return MonkeyKing.handleOpenURL(url)

    Remember to handle userActivities if you are using UIScene in your project:

    // SceneDelegate.swift
    func scene(_ scene: UIScene, continue userActivity: NSUserActivity) {
  4. Prepare your message and ask MonkeyKing to deliver it:

    @IBAction func shareURLToWeChatSession(sender: UIButton) {
        MonkeyKing.registerAccount(.weChat(appID: "xxx", appKey: "yyy", miniAppID: nil)) // you can do it here (just before deliver)
        let message = MonkeyKing.Message.weChat(.session(info: (
            title: "Session",
            description: "Hello Session",
            thumbnail: UIImage(named: "rabbit"),
            media: .url(URL(string: "http://www.apple.com/cn")!)
        MonkeyKing.deliver(message) { success in
            print("shareURLToWeChatSession success: \(success)")

It's done!


Example: Weibo OAuth

MonkeyKing.oauth(for: .weibo) { (oauthInfo, response, error) -> Void in
    print("OAuthInfo \(oauthInfo) error \(error)")
    // Now, you can use the token to fetch info.

or, WeChat OAuth for code only

MonkeyKing.weChatOAuthForCode { [weak self] (code, error) in
    guard let code = code else {
    // TODO: fetch info with code

If the user doesn't have Weibo App installed on their devices then MonkeyKing will use web OAuth:


Example: Alipay

let order = MonkeyKing.Order.alipay(urlString: urlString, scheme: nil)
MonkeyKing.deliver(order) { result in
    print("result: \(result)")

You need to configure pay.php in a remote server. You can find an example of pay.php at the Demo project.

Launch WeChat Mini App

let path = "..."
MonkeyKing.launch(.weChat(.miniApp(username: "gh_XXX", path: path, type: .release))) { result in
    switch result {
    case .success:
    case .failure(let error):
        print("error:", error)

Note that username has a gh_ prefix (原始ID).


If you like to use UIActivityViewController for sharing then MonkeyKing has AnyActivity which can help you.

Check the demo for more information.
