MCHTTPRequestLogger – Output HTTP requests made with AFNetworking in the debug console.

Badge w/ Version
Badge w/ Platform

MCHTTPRequestLogger is an extension to AFNetworking that logs every requests and responses as they are sent and received. It is a lot more verbose than AFHTTPRequestOperationLogger, by design.

Example Usage

Just add the following code to your UIApplicationDelegate, in the method -application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: and you should see extensive information for each requests/responses in your Xcode console.

[[MCHTTPRequestLogger sharedLogger] startLogging];
// Set the JSONOutputStyle property to have pretty printed JSON output
[[MCHTTPRequestLogger sharedLogger] setJSONOutputStyle:MCHTTPRequestLoggerJSONOutputStylePrettyPrinted];

Disabling the logging service for a specific HTTP request

Add the MCHTTPRequestLoggerDefaultHeaderIgnore HTTP header to the NSMutableURLRequest like this:

[request addValue:@"YES" forHTTPHeaderField:MCHTTPRequestLoggerDefaultHeaderIgnore];

The value for the header is not important. To disable the logging, MCHTTPRequestLogger search only the presence of the header.

Important Notes

  • This code has been known to work on iOS 5.x+.
  • This code uses Automatic Reference Counting, if your project does not use ARC, you must add the -fobjc-arc compiler flag to each implementation files in Target Settings > Build Phases > Compile Source.
  • This code also uses the literals syntax, so at least Xcode 4.5 is required.

Adding to your project

If you’re using CocoaPods, there’s nothing simpler.
Add the following to your Podfile
and run pod install

pod 'MCHTTPRequestLogger'

Don’t forget to #import "MCHTTPRequestLogger.h" where it’s needed.
