Phrase – Swift Templating Library

Phrase is a Swift templating library.

Installation

There are two ways to use Phrase currently:

  • Cocoapods

  • Swift Package Manager

Concepts

Token

A token is a item that is to be replace. It is identifier by a key surrounded by braces.

Examples: {name}, {age}, {year}.

Template

A template is a string of text that contains tokens to be replaced.

Examples:: The {fruit} is the color {color}., {name} is {age} years old!.

Usage

Initialization

Phrase is extremely easy to use. The only initial requirement for creating a Phrase is a template.

Phrase(template: "Hi {name}, I am {age} years old.}"

func put(key: String, value: CustomStringConvertable) -> Phrase

After initialization it is time to supply the Phrase with keys to be replaced. Using this method, we can designate to replace any key with a value that conforms to CustomStringConvertable). Notice that this method returns itself to allow easy chaining.

Note that attempting to use the same key more than once will result in the last value supplied being used.

let example = Phrase(template: "Hi {name}, I am {age} years old.")

example.put(key: "name", value: "Cody")
example.put(key: "age", value: 21)

func format() -> String

Finally, when you are done adding replacements for the template it is time to build the string. This will replace any instance of the supplied keys with the value given.

let greeting = Phrase(template: "Hi {name}, I am {age} years old.")
    .put(key: "name", value: "Cody")
    .put(key: "age", value: 21)
    .format()

print(greeting) // Prints: "Hi Cody, I am 21 years old."
