Use NotificationCenter with EventBus style

What is MagicSwiftBus ?

  • Implement publish-subscribe communication between object easily.
  • Don’t loose time with crash due to missing character, use enum instead.
  • don’t use NSNotification as parameters of your methods, define the real param directly.
  • Define all your communication in a protocol.

inspired By

Before MagicSwiftBus

register / unregister

NSNotificationCenter.defaultCenter().addObserver(
    self,
    selector: #selector(testSuccess(_:)),
    name: "MyNotificationTest",
    object: nil)

post notification

NSNotificationCenter.defaultCenter().postNotificationName("MyNotificationTest", object: "bonjour" as AnyObject)

implement notification’s method

func testSuccess(notification: Notification) {
  if let object = notification.object as String {
  }
}

With MagicSwiftBus

register / unregister

Bus.register(self, event: .Test, with: "bonjour")

post notification

Bus.post(.Test)

implement notification’s method

func testSuccess(str: String) {
  print(str)
}

Installation

CocoaPods

CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects. You can install it with the following command:

$ gem install cocoapods

To integrate MagicSwiftBus into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, it in your Podfile:

platform :ios, '9.0'
use_frameworks!

target '<Your Target Name>' do
  pod 'MagicSwiftBus'
end

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install

Carthage

Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks.

You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:

$ brew update
$ brew install carthage

To integrate Magic-Swift-Bus into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "favret/Magic-Swift-Bus" => 3.0.0

Run carthage update to build the framework and drag the built MagicSwiftBus.framework into your Xcode project.

Manually

If you prefer not to use either of the aforementioned dependency managers, you can integrate Magic-Swift-Bus into your project manually as an Embedded Framework.

Usage

Create your event protocol

@objc protocol MyEvent {
  func testSuccess(str:String)
  func makeCoffee()
}

Here, you can see that the parameter is a String but it can be something else.

Implement your event protocol

extension ViewController: MyEvent {

  func makeCoffee() {
    print("☕️")
  }

  func testSuccess(str: String) {
    print(str)
  }
}

In this exemple, MyReceiver can be UIViewController or NSObject or wathever you want.

Add your event protocol to MagicSwiftBus

class MyBus: Bus {
  enum EventBus: String, EventBusType {
    case test, makeCoffee

    var notification: Selector {
      switch self{
      case .test: return #selector(MyEvent.testSuccess(str:))
      case .makeCoffee: return #selector(MyEvent.makeCoffee)
      }
    }
  }
}

First, you have to create a class that inherit Bus.
Then, implement EventBusType protocol. in the above exemple, this protocol is implemented by an enum.

Don’t forget to register and unregister

MyBus.register(observer: self, events: .test, .makeCoffee)
...
MyBus.unregisterAll(observer: self)

Fire simple notification

Finally, you can fire an event like that :

    MyBus.post(event: .test, with: "hello world")

Thread

post event on main Thread

MyBus.postOnMainThread(event: .test, with: "hello world")

post event on background Thread (default)

MyBus.postOnBackgroundThread(event: .test, with: "hello world")

post event on specific Queue

MyBus.post(on: DispatchQueue.global(qos: .background), event: .test, with: "hello world")

Exemple

import UIKit
import MagicSwiftBus

@objc protocol MyEvent {
  func testSuccess(str:String)
  func makeCoffee()
}

class MyBus: Bus {
  enum EventBus: String, EventBusType {
    case test, makeCoffee

    var notification: Selector {
      switch self{
      case .test: return #selector(MyEvent.testSuccess(str:))
      case .makeCoffee: return #selector(MyEvent.makeCoffee)
      }
    }
  }
}

class ViewController: UIViewController {

  override func viewDidLoad() {
    super.viewDidLoad()
    // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
  }

  override func didReceiveMemoryWarning() {
    super.didReceiveMemoryWarning()
    // Dispose of any resources that can be recreated.
  }

  // Register / Unregister
  override func viewWillAppear(_ animated: Bool) {
    super.viewWillAppear(animated)
    MyBus.register(observer: self, events: .test, .makeCoffee)
    MyBus.post(event: .test, with: "helloWorld")
    MyBus.post(event: .makeCoffee)
  }

  override func viewWillDisappear(_ animated: Bool) {
    super.viewWillDisappear(animated)
    MyBus.unregisterAll(observer: self)
  }
}

//Implement method that you want to use
extension ViewController: MyEvent {

  func makeCoffee() {
    print("☕️")
  }

  func testSuccess(str: String) {
    print(str)
  }
}
