Integrating with a PHP project

Possibly a beginner question here…

I have a project that I am coding using PHP for the backend for an app to be on iOS. I want to build a chat function for groups of people in the app.

How do I integrate sendbird with my backend? Which documentation/SDK do I use?

Thank you!

Hi @mi117 and welcome to the Sendbird community!

You can use the Sendbird Platform API with your backend, the documentation can be found here Overview | Chat Platform API | Chat Platform API | Sendbird Docs.

With the Platform API you can manage your Sendbird application’s users, messages, channels and other chat resources through a RESTful API.

For iOS you would either use the iOS SDK or the iOS UIKit.

The iOS Chat SKD gives you full control over integrating chat functionality Send your first message | Chat iOS SDK | Sendbird Docs
While the iOS Chat UIKit allows for a faster implementation through customizable components. Overview | UIKit for iOS | UIKit iOS SDK | Sendbird Docs

Thanks for the reply Adam! Will dig in the documentation. Will ask if I have any other questions after I read the documentation.
