A simple Swift library to work with plist files and data. Inspired by SwitfyJSON.


import Plist

// initialize using an NSDictionary
// and retrieve keyed values

let info = Plist(dict)
let name = info["name"].string ?? ""
let age = info["age"].int ?? 0

// initialize using an NSArray
// and retrieve indexed values

let info = Plist(array)
let itemAtIndex0 = info[0].value

// load an applications info.plist data

let info = Plist(NSBundle.mainBundle().infoDictionary)
let identifier = info["CFBundleIndentifier"].string!

// utility initiaizer to load a plist file at specified path
let info = Plist(path: "path_to_plist_file")

// we support index chaining - you can get to a dictionary from an array via
// a dictionary and so on
// don't worry, the following will not fail with errors in case
// the index path is invalid
if let complicatedAccessOfSomeStringValueOfInterest = info["dictKey"][10]["anotherKey"].string {
  // do something
else {
  // data cannot be indexed

// you can also re-use parts of a plist data structure

let info = Plist(...)
let firstSection = info["Sections"][0]["SectionData"]
let sectionKey = firstSection["key"].string!
let sectionSecret = firstSection["secret"].int!

NOTE: To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.
