Bidirectional JSON-Dictionary/Object parser development in swift 4.

RequirementsInstallationUsageContributionAuthorLicense

Requirements

  • iOS 10.0+
  • Xcode 9.0+
  • Swift 4.0+

Installation

CocoaPods

Install CocoaPods if it is not already available:

$ [sudo] gem install cocoapods
$ pod setup

If you already have cocoapods, update it:

$ pod update

Go to the directory of your Xcode project, and Create and Edit your Podfile and add LabParser:

$ cd /path/to/MyProject
$ nano Podfile

platform :ios, '11.0'
use_frameworks!

target 'MyProject' do
 pod 'LABParser', '~> 0.1'
end

Install it into your project:

$ pod install

Open your project in Xcode from the .xcworkspace file (not the usual project file):

$ open MyProject.xcworkspace

You can now import LABParser framework into your files.

Usage

LABParser is a bidirectional JSON-Dictionary/Object parser development in swfit 4.

In order to usage this pod, you need import LABParser into yours model objects.

LABParser act through a class named ParcelableModel. You must inherits all your models of this class to use properly LABParser. We encourage you to create a BaseModel class to import LABParser only in it. This BaseModel class must be open to allow inherits.

import Foundation
import LABParser

open class BaseModel: ParcelableModel {

}

Now create your models class.

import Foundation

class User: BaseModel {

    var email: String!
    var password: String!

    required init(){
        super.init()
    }

    init(email: String, password: String) {
        super.init()
        self.email = email
        self.password = password
    }
}

So, suppose that you receive a JSON User object like this in a variable named data:

{
    "email": "[email protected]",
    "password": "aom123"
}

You can convert it to your swift model with:

let user = User()
do {
    user.fromJSON(data) 
} catch {
    print("The string isn't a valid JSON")
}

Must use try catch blocks to do error handling.

If you receive a Dictionary representation of your User object you can parser doing:

let user = User()
user.fromDictionary(data)

Then you can use the object atributes:

print("Email user is: /(user.email) and password: /(user.password)")

If you receive a dictionary array you can parser it doing:

let userArray: [User] = User.fromDictionaryArray(data)

Note that your models atributtes must be exactly same of the JSON/Dictionary key name. However, if you have any key tath doesn’t match with the model you can override the function ‘customKeysName’, create a custom dictionary of keys and return it:

override func customKeysName() -> [String: String]? {
    return ["email": "user_email",
            "password": "U.Password"]
}

To create a dictionary from a model, your ParcelableModel must be initialized:

let user = User(email: "[email protected]", password: "aom123")

so, create a dictionary it’s simple like:

let userDictionary: [String: AnyObject] = user.toDictionary()

to create a JSON String from a model:

do {
    let jsonString = try user.toJSON()
    print("toJSON: " + jsonString)
} catch {
    print("The model can't be parsed to JSON format")
}

To Consider

  • All yours models must inherits from ParcelableModel. To import only in a class, you can create a BaseModel to it and all yours models inherits from BaseModel.
  • Your atributtes models must be exactly the same of the JSON/Dictionary key name or you must override the function ‘customKeysName’ in your model class.
  • If you have properties of type Int, Float or Double then you must change these types to NSNumber.
  • If you have properties of type Bool, you must initialize these in their declaration. You can convert it to NSNumber too.
  • LABParser can parser atributes of ParcelableModel objects type like:
    
    import Foundation

class Token: BaseModel {

var defaultToken: String!
var attempts: NSNumber?
var refreshToken: String!

required init(){
    super.init()
}

}

import Foundation

class User: BaseModel {

var email: String!
var password: String!
var token: Token!

required init(){
    super.init()
}

}

- LABParser can parser arrays of ParcelableModel objects like:

{
"email": "[email protected]",
"password": "aom123",
"offices": [
{
"name": "LAB 1",
"address": "Street 1"
},
{
"name": "LAB 2",
"address": "Street 2"
}
]
}

With a propertly model:

import Foundation

class Office: BaseModel {

var name: String!
var address: String!

required init(){
    super.init()
}

}

import Foundation

class User: BaseModel {

var email: String!
var password: String!
var offices: [Office]!

required init(){
    super.init()
}

}
