ServerBytes Friends plugin helps you to build friend relationships between players, and check whether user is online or offline.
Use Friends plugin to manage friend requests, block/unblock users and get notified when user status change.


To add Friends plugin to your game, simply download Unity package and import it into the Unity game, or download Nuget package.


Client setup

The very first step to initialize the plugin is to setup the plugin host:

var pluginHost = ClientFactory.GetPluginHost(appKey);
var friendsFactory = new FriendsFactory(pluginHost, myRelationshipNotifications);
// ...or initialize without notification handler
// var friendsFactory = new FriendsFactory(pluginHost);

// instantiate other plugins

var client = UnityClientFactory.GetClient(pluginHost);

Client.OnConnected += Client_OnConnected;
Client.OnFailedToConnect += Client_OnFailedToConnect;
Client.OnDisconnected += Client_OnDisconnected;

    IRelationshipService relationshipService = friendsFactory.Create(Client);
