Chain

Swift 5.0
Platforms iOS
Xcode 10.2

Method chaining of queued closure (blocks) on GCD (Grand Central Dispatch).

Chain is inspired by Async.

Features

  • Method chain of queued closures (blocks) on GCD.
  • Pass the object to the next queue
  • Less code indentation.

Exsample

Basics

Chain.main {
    // called first
    // called at main thread queue
    print("start")
    return "1"
    }.background { result in
         // called second
         // called at background qos class thread queue
         print(result)  // Optional(1)
         return "2"
    }.userInteractive { result in
         // called third
         // called at userInteractive qos class thread queue
         print(result)  // Optional(2)
         return "3"
    }.userInitiated { result in
         // called fourth
         // called at userInitiated qos class thread queue
         print(result)  // Optional(3)
         return "4"
    }.onDefault { result in
         // called fifth
         // called at default qos class thread queue
         print(result)  // Optional(4)
         return "5"
    }.run(.Main) { result in
         // called last
         // called at main thread queue
         print(result)  // Optional(5)
         print("completion")
}

Custom queue

let customQueue = dispatch_get_global_queue(QOS_CLASS_BACKGROUND, 0)

Chain.custom(customQueue) {
    // called first
    // called at customQueue
    return nil
    }.onDefault { result in
         // called second
         // called at default qos class thread queue
         return result
    }.main { result in
         // called third
         // called at main thread queue
         return result
    }.custom(customQueue) { result in
         // called fourth
         // called at customQueue
         return result
    }.run()

After

Chain.main {
    // called first
    // called at main thread queue
    print("start after: (NSDate().description)")
    return "1"
    }.after(seconds: 5) { result in
        // called second
        // called to 5 seconds after the previous block
        // called at background qos class thread queue
        print(result)  // Optional(1)
        return "after 2: (NSDate().description)"
    }.userInteractive { result in
        // called third
        // called at userInteractive qos class thread queue
        print(result)  // Optional(2)
        return "after 3: (NSDate().description)"
    }.after(Queue.Utility, seconds: 5) { result in
        // called fourth
        // called to 5 seconds after the previous block
        // called at utility qos class thread queue
        print(result)  // Optional(3)
        return "after 4: (NSDate().description)"
    }.run(.Main) { result in
        // called last
        // called at main thread queue
        print(result)  // Optional(4)
        print("after completion: (NSDate().description)")
}

Wait

Chain.main {
    // called first
    // called at main thread queue
    print("start wait: (NSDate().description)")
    return "1"
    }.wait(seconds: 5).background { result in
        // called to 5 seconds after the previous block
        // called at background qos class thread queue
        print("wait 2: (NSDate().description)")
        return result
    }.wait(seconds: 5).main { result in
        // called to 5 seconds after the previous block
        // called at main thread queue
        print("wait 3: (NSDate().description)")
        return result
    }.run()
