Pure-Swift library for safe access to UserDefaults

Requirements

  • Xcode 9
  • Swift 4.0+
  • iOS 10.0+

Installation

CocoaPods

CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects.

To integrate SafeDefaultsKit into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, add the following line to your Podfile and run pod install.

pod 'SafeDefaultsKit', git: 'https://github.com/jrsaruo/SafeDefaultsKit.git'

Carthage

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

To integrate SafeDefaultsKit into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "jrsaruo/SafeDefaultsKit"

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

Features

Safe access by using Enum as key

You can define original keys and safely access to UserDefaults by using them.

// Initialize your Defaults
let defaults = YourDefaults()

// Set value for Defaults
defaults.set("saved string", forKey: .definedKey)

// Get value from Defaults
print(defaults.string(forKey: .definedKey) ?? "no value") // -> "saved string"

// Remove value from Defaults
defaults.removeObject(forKey: .definedKey)
print(defaults.string(forKey: .definedKey) ?? "no value") // -> "no value"

Divide Defaults

By dividing Defaults for each purposes, it becomes easier to manage keys.

let loginInfoDefaults = LoginInfoDefaults() // LoginInfoDefaults has "loginDate" key
loginInfoDefaults.set(Date(), forKey: .loginDate)

let settingDefaults = SettingDefaults() // SettingDefaults has "mainColor" key
settingDefaults.set("red", forKey: .mainColor)

Usage

At first, declare the type that conforms to the SafeDefaults protocol. This requires nested Enum named Keys that conforms to the DefaultsKey protocol and stores string raw values, and its cases are used as keys for your Defaults.

Simplest Declaration

struct SampleDefaults: SafeDefaults {

    enum Keys: String, DefaultsKey {
        case userName
    }

}

SampleDefaults().set("Tom", forKey: .userName)
// same as: UserDefaults.standard.set("Tom", forKey: "userName")

Customize the key name for UserDefaults

DefaultsKey requires the uniqueValue property, used as the key name for UserDefaults.
uniqueValue‘s default value is its raw value.

struct SampleDefaults: SafeDefaults {

    enum Keys: String, DefaultsKey {
        case userName = "customizedKeyForUserName"
    }
}

SampleDefaults().set("Tom", forKey: .userName)
// same as: UserDefaults.standard.set("Tom", forKey: "customizedKeyForUserName")

If you declare uniqueValue explicitly, it is used as the key name instead of the raw value.

struct SampleDefaults: SafeDefaults {

    enum Keys: String, DefaultsKey {
        case userName

        // customize the key name for UserDefaults
        var uniqueValue: String {
            return "SampleDefaults.(Keys.self).(self.rawValue)"
        }
    }

}

SampleDefaults().set("Tom", forKey: .userName)
// same as: UserDefaults.standard.set("Tom", forKey: "SampleDefaults.Keys.userName")

:warning: Caution

Difference from UserDefaults

getter methods for double, float, integer return optional value. If the specified key doesn‘t exist, these methods return nil.

UserDefaults.standard.removeObject(forKey: "removed")

UserDefaults.standard.integer(forKey: "removed") // -> 0
YourDefaults().integer(forKey: .removed) // -> nil

Keys.uniqueValue is NOT guaranteed to be unique entirely

uniqueValue is used as key name for UserDefaults and default is its raw value, so there is fear that some keys conflict each other.

:x: NG sample

struct BookDefaults: SafeDefaults {
    enum Keys: String, DefaultsKey {
        case id
    }
}

struct ComicDefaults: SafeDefaults {
    enum Keys: String, DefaultsKey {
        case id // MARK: This uniqueValue conflicts with that of BookDefaults.Keys.id
    }
}

BookDefaults().set(5, forKey: .id) // same as: UserDefaults.set(5, forKey: "id")
ComicDefaults().set(10, forKey: .id) // same as: UserDefaults.set(10, forKey: "id")
print(BookDefaults().integer(forKey: .id)!) // -> 10 (not 5)

:o: Avoid the same case name

struct BookDefaults: SafeDefaults {
    enum Keys: String, DefaultsKey {
        case bookID
    }
}

struct ComicDefaults: SafeDefaults {
    enum Keys: String, DefaultsKey {
        case comicID
    }
}

BookDefaults().set(5, forKey: .bookID) // same as: UserDefaults.set(5, forKey: "bookID")
ComicDefaults().set(10, forKey: .comicID) // same as: UserDefaults.set(10, forKey: "comicID")
print(BookDefaults().integer(forKey: .bookID)!) // -> 5

:o: Set differerent rawValues explicitly

struct BookDefaults: SafeDefaults {
    enum Keys: String, DefaultsKey {
        case id = "bookID"
    }
}

struct ComicDefaults: SafeDefaults {
    enum Keys: String, DefaultsKey {
        case id = "comicID"
    }
}

BookDefaults().set(5, forKey: .id) // same as: UserDefaults.set(5, forKey: "bookID")
ComicDefaults().set(10, forKey: .id) // same as: UserDefaults.set(10, forKey: "comicID")
print(BookDefaults().integer(forKey: .id)!) // -> 5

:o: Declare uniqueValue by yourself

It is possible to customize key name for UserDefaults by declaring uniqueValue. For example, you can use your Defaults’ name as the namespace.

struct BookDefaults: SafeDefaults {
    enum Keys: String, DefaultsKey {
        case id

        var uniqueValue: String {
            // use "BookDefaults.Keys" as the namespace
            return "BookDefaults.(Keys.self).(self.rawValue)"
        }
    }
}

struct ComicDefaults: SafeDefaults {
    enum Keys: String, DefaultsKey {
        case id

        var uniqueValue: String {
            return "ComicDefaults.(Keys.self).(self.rawValue)"
        }
    }
}

BookDefaults().set(5, forKey: .id) // same as: UserDefaults.set(5, forKey: "BookDefaults.Keys.id")
ComicDefaults().set(10, forKey: .id) // same as: UserDefaults.set(10, forKey: "ComicDefaults.Keys.id")
print(BookDefaults().integer(forKey: .id)!) // -> 5
