Ohana is a framework for working with a user’s contacts on the iOS platform. It provides a component-based architecture for loading and processing contacts, as well as managing state such as contact selection and tagging. Whether loading contacts to display to a user, or processing contact data programatically, Ohana provides a simple, but extensible, framework for contact access in your application. Check out the wiki to learn how the library works. There are two quickstart guides available: one for Swift and one for Objective-C. If you have any questions, feel free to ask on Stack Overflow (tag "ohana").
