Introduction

Every chat message has a message metadata property which is a dictionary of string keys and any (json serializable) value. This dictionary is empty by default and LiveLike will never modify this field. This property can be used to attach custom flags to adjust behavior or display for each individual message.

Sending a message with Message Metadata

Message Metadata can be attached to a message upon creation

LiveLike.sendMessage({
   roomId: "d7b2d84f-66a5-4a39-8924-9dde2fa6578a",
   message: "Hi",
   message_metadata: {role: "vip"}
}).then(res => {
   console.log('message',res)
   return res
})
let chatSession: ChatSession
				let messageMetadata: MessageMetadata = [
            "ex-key-1": "some-string",
            "ex-key-2": 1
        ]

				chatSession.sendMessage(
            NewChatMessage(
                text: "my message",
                messageMetadata: messageMetadata
            )
        ) { result in
            switch result {
            case .success(let chatMessage):
              	print(chatMessage.messageMetadata)
             		// Do something with chat message
            case .failure(let error):
                // Something went wrong
            }
        }
val messageMetadataMap = mutableMapOf<String, Any?>()
messageMetadataMap["Name"] = "Test"

// send message
chatSession.sendMessage(
    message,
    messageMetadata = messageMetadataMap,
    liveLikePreCallback = callback
)
