API Notes: InstantMessage framework


An introduction to PyObjC describes the general method for translating Objective-C calls into Python calls, including the handling of pass-by-reference arguments and buffers.

This document describes where the PyObjC bindings for this framework are different from the general rule, such as mentioning APIs that are not supported or where the interface is different than expected.

The full API is described in Apple’s documentation, both the C and Objective-C APIs are available (but see the API Notes below).

These bindings are accessed through the InstantMessage package (that is, import InstantMessage).

API Notes

All API’s in the InstantMessage framework are wrapped by PyObjC.

The InstantMessage framework is deprecated in OSX 10.9, use the Social framework instead (which is new in OSX 10.9)
