Synopsis

BackboneSwift is a simple REST client inspired by Backbone JS. BackboneSwift offers a combination between Alamofire , PromiseKit and SwiftyJSON that will allow you create models and collection easly.

Code Example

Declare your custom models and collections

import BackboneSwift

// Declare a model that inherits from BackboneSwit.  
    class Repo : Model {
        var name: String = ""
        var html_url: String = ""
        var score:Int = 0
    }

    class Repositories: BaseCollection <Repo> { // create the collection

    }

And just use them:

//GET example in a tableViewController

    var githubRepositories = Repositories(baseUrl:"https://api.github.com/search/repositories")

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        // Use the HttpOptions to add a query
        let requestOptions = HttpOptions(queryString: "q=language:swift&sort=stars&order=desc")
        // HTTP GET
        githubRepositories.fetch(usingOptions:requestOptions).then { (repos:Repositories, _) -> Void in //Asynch call back
            self.tableView.reloadData()
        }.catch { (error) in
            // This will always get called if something goes wrong
            print(error)
        }
    }

Other HTTP methods:

      // POST
        Repo().create().then { (repo:Repo, metadata:ResponseMetadata)  -> Void in
            // do whatever you want 
        }

        // DELETE
        Repo().delete().then { (repo:Repo, metadata:ResponseMetadata)  -> Void in
          // do whatever you want   
        }
        // UPDATE
        Repo().save().then { (repo:Repo, metadata:ResponseMetadata) -> Void in
           // do whatever you want  
        }

Motivation

Swift is a strong typed lang that could get very tricky when creating an object from a json file.
BackboneSwift abstracts that complexity away by handling with the optionals unwraping , the responses of http connections and the asynch of all of them. BackboneSwift also offers a Promise oriented sintaxis to avoid the ‘callback hell’. We are big fans of using promises in Swift.
