Keychain is a helper class to quickly access to stored values in iOS Keychain.

You can instance a Keychain object like this:

let keychain = Keychain()

// You can also instance it with a specific access group.
let anotherKeychain = Keychain(accessGroup: "MyGroup")

Using Keychain is straightforward :

// Save into keychain"Hello World!!", forKey: "MyKey") // returns true if ok, otherwise false

// Read from keychain
keychain.get("MyKey") // returns String?

// Delete from keychain
keychain.delete("MyKey") // returns true if ok, otherwise false


Log is a helper method for more accurate console prints. From iOS 10 we use OSLog class to print logs. You can use the Mac’s Console app to filter and manage logs by subsystem and category. We add more util info in debug mode like line, function and emojis.

More info Unified logging.


Log("Default message with default OSLog")
let testLog = OSLog(subsystem: "S1.Square1ToolsApp.test", category: "test")
Log("Info message", log: testLog, type: .info)

Console app output(filter for subsystem)
