EasyJSON is a simple JSON to Object mapper.

Requirements

  • iOS 9.0+
  • Xcode 8.0+
  • Swift 3.0+

Installation

Cocoapods

EasyJSON is available through CocoaPods. To install
it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod "EasyJSON"

Carthage

To install it, simple add the following line to your Cartfile

github "MataDesigns/EasyJSON"

Features

  • ✅ Allow custom mapping to and from JSON
  • ✅ Map properties that are also subclasses of EasyModel
  • ✅ Allow custom handler for a parsing a specific property
  • ✅ Map subobjects
  • ✅ snake_case🐍 and camelCase🐪 support

Usage

Important !!! currently only class are supported (if you use structs this will not work)

Intro

Creating Model

Just create a class whos subclass is a EasyModel.

import EasyJSON

class Person: EasyModel {
    var id: Int!
    var firstName: String?
    var lastName: String?
}

Filling Model

To go from JSON to Model.

  1. Create a empty Model
  2. Call fill(withJson:)
  3. Your model is now filled with the information from the dictionary.

So long as the keys match the property name exactly.

If your Dictionary keys are different from the property names go to KeyMaps.

import EasyJSON

// Person Model

let json = ["id": 1, "firstName": "Jane", "lastName": "Doe"]
let person = Person()
person.fill(withDict: json)

print(person.id)        // Prints 1
print(person.firstName) // Prints Jane
print(person.lastName)  // Prints Doe

Model To JSON

import EasyJSON

let json = person.toJson()
print(json) // Prints ["id": 1, "firstName": "Jane", "lastName": "Doe"]

Advanced

KeyMaps

You can make custom keymaps by implementing the KeyMap protocol.
Currently we provide two KeyMaps.

PropertyMap

Now what about when your JSON is different from your property names?

import EasyJSON

class Person: EasyModel {
    override var _options_: EasyModelOptions {
        var maps = [KeyMap]()
        maps.append(PropertyMap(modelKey: "id", jsonKey: "personId"))
        return EasyModelOptions(maps: maps)
    }

    var id: Int!
    var firstName: String?
    var lastName: String?
}

Then you can now use the following json to fill then object.

let json = ["personId": 1, "firstName": "Jane", "lastName": "Doe"]

let person = Person()
person.fill(withDict: json)

print(person.id)        // Prints 1
print(person.firstName) // Prints Jane
print(person.lastName)  // Prints Doe

HidePropertyMap

Now what about when you have a property that has nothing to do with the json?

import EasyJSON

class Person: EasyModel {
    override var _options_: EasyModelOptions {
        var maps = [KeyMap]()
        maps.append(HidePropertyMap(modelKey: "fullName"))
        return EasyModelOptions(maps: maps)
    }

    var id: Int!
    var firstName: String?
    var lastName: String?
    var fullName: String {
        var name = ""
        name = name + (firstName ?? "")
        name = name + (lastName != nil ? " " + lastName! : "")
        return name
    }
}

Then you fill or toJson the property is hidden

let json = ["personId": 1, "firstName": "Jane", "lastName": "Doe"]

let person = Person()
person.fill(withDict: json)

print(person.id)        // Prints 1
print(person.firstName) // Prints Jane
print(person.lastName)  // Prints Doe
print(person.fullName)  // Prints Jane Doe

let jsonDict = person.toJson()
print(jsonDict["fullName"]) // Prints nothing fullName key doesn't exist.

Converters

You can make custom converter by implementing the Converter protocol.
Converters can be applied to either a specific type or a specific key.
(Key ConverterKey takes priority over Type ConverterKey)
Currently we provide two Converters.

DateConverter

String to Date

{
   "id": 1,
   "firstName": "Nicholas",
   "lastName": "Mata",
   "birthday": "02/18/1994",
   "createdOn": "2017-01-28T10:00:48",
   "updatedOn": "2017-01-28T10:00:48"
}

So the Dates are just Strings so how do we change this into a Date Type
and then convert back when turning into json?

import EasyJSON

class Person: EasyModel {
    override var _options_: EasyModelOptions {
        var converters = [ConverterKey:Converter]()
    converters[.key("birthDate")] = DateConverter(format: "MM/dd/yy")
        converters[.type(Date.self)] = DateConverter(format: "yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss")
        return EasyModelOptions(converters: converters)
    }

    var id: Int!
    var firstName: String?
    var lastName: String?

    var birthday: Date?
    var createdOn: Date?
    var updatedOn: Date?
}

Thats it then you can use it like any other Date type.

BoolConverter

String to Bool

{
   "id": 1,
   "firstName": "Nicholas",
   "lastName": "Mata",
   "isBestFriend" : "No"
}

So how do we turn a string into a bool?

import EasyJSON

class Person: EasyModel {
    override var _options_: EasyModelOptions {
        var converters = [ConverterKey:Converter]()
    converters[.key("isBestFriend")] = BoolConverter(trueWhen: "Yes", whenFalse: "No", caseSensitive: false)
        return EasyModelOptions(converters: converters)
    }

    var id: Int!
    var firstName: String?
    var lastName: String?
    var isBestFriend: Bool = false
}

Mapping SubObjects

Now lets say you have something like this.

class Student: EasyModel {
    var id: Int!
    var firstName: String?
    var lastName: String?
}

class Classroom: EasyModel {
    var id: Int!
    var name: String?
    var students: [Student]?
}

And your JSON looks something like this

{
    "id": 1,
    "name": "Computer Science",
    "students": [{
        "id": 1,
        "firstName": "Nicholas",
        "lastName": "Mata"
    }, 
    {
        "id":2,
        "firstName": "Jane",
        "lastName": "Doe"
    }]
}

It just simply works.
