Platformsios 8.0, requires ARC

CocoaPods Compatible
Carthage Compatible

High-level network layer abstraction library written in Swift.

Why not just use Alamofire directly

  • If one day the project manager tell you need to use Socket reconstruct all network interfaces, you are going to all the business code to replace the Alamofire to new Socket requests?
  • A few days late, the project manager tell you some old interfaces must compatible with previous methods, but requires the use of Socket new interfaces to achieve, you are going to change the network interfaces which you already reconstructed back?
  • Direct use Alamofire, all requests related parameters are located in the business code, and there are several different methods of calling the request, such as uploading and downloading and a normal request invoke methods on the inconsistency. Pack all related parameters into an object, you can use only one very method to achieve all different situations request call. Conforms to the Command Pattern rules
  • Wrap network layer, brings more conducive to expansion. If you preferred use Alamofire andSocket both, only need to specify which way you want to use for request in command inside, and then expand the corresponding request mode implement (default only implements Alamofire)
  • The code change of network layer does not affect the business layer, underlying free replacement transducer, a request to call as long as the business layer rule to conform redes ask

CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects.

CocoaPods 0.36 adds supports for Swift and embedded frameworks. You can install it with the following command:

$ gem install cocoapods

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

source ''
platform :ios, '8.0'

pod 'Redes'

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install

You should open the {Project}.xcworkspace instead of the {Project}.xcodeproj after you installed anything from CocoaPods.


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 Redes into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "cuzv/Redes"

Then, run the following command to build the Redes framework:

$ carthage update

At last, you need to set up your Xcode project manually to add the Redes framework.

On your application targets’ “General” settings tab, in the “Linked Frameworks and Libraries” section, drag and drop each framework you want to use from the Carthage/Build folder on disk.

On your application targets’ “Build Phases” settings tab, click the “+” icon and choose “New Run Script Phase”. Create a Run Script with the following content:

/usr/local/bin/carthage copy-frameworks

and add the paths to the frameworks you want to use under “Input Files”:


For more information about how to use Carthage, please see its project page.

Since Redes related to Alamofire, you should do those produce again for Alamofire


  • Make your API conforms to Requestable
struct LoginApi: Requestable {
    var userName: String = ""
    var passWord: String = ""

    var url: URLConvertible {
        return "https://host/to/path"

    var method: HTTPMethod {
        return .POST

    var var bodies: HTTPBodies {
        return [
            "user": userName,
            "pass": passWord

    var headers: HTTPHeaders {
        return [:]
  • Build api and start request & process result
let loginRequest = LoginApi().action()

loginRequest.responseJSON {

loginRequest.responseJSON(queue: {
.responseString {
    switch $0.result {
    case .success(let value):
    case .failure(let error):
// .cancel()
  • More information see the demo in project. (Before you run this project, checkout API.swift and change the setups to your server configuration.)


Caching is handled on the system framework level by URLCache.
