NSMutableData-MultipartFormDataAdditions

Easily build multipart/form-data formatted data. (which used to post an image.)

You can build the data as following.

NSMutableData *body = [[NSMutableData alloc] init];
[body mp_setString:@"bar" forKey:@"foo"];
[body mp_setPNGImage:[UIImage named:@"sample.png"] forKey:@"photo"];

[request setHTTPBody:body]; // NSMutableURLRequest

Please note you must set appropriate HTTP headers

[request addValue:KIMultipartContentType forHTTPHeaderField:@"Content-Type"];
[request setHTTPMethod:@"POST"];

And you can find some documentations in the header.

#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>

/**
 *  This string must be set to the request's `Content-Type`.
 */
extern NSString *const KIMultipartContentType;

/**
 *  A category to build multipart/form-data -formatted `NSData`.
 *
 *      NSMutableData *body = [[NSMutableData alloc] init];
 *      [body mp_setString:@"bar" forKey:@"foo"];
 *      [body mp_setPNGImage:[UIImage named:@"sample.png"] forKey:@"photo"];
 *
 *      [request setHTTPBody:body]; // NSMutableURLRequest
 *
 *  This request can be represented in JSON like
 *
 *      {
 *          "foo": "bar",
 *          "photo": <Image: sample.png>
 *      }
 *
 *  To perform the request, the header should be set as following where `request` is `NSMutableURLRequest`
 *
 *      [request addValue:KIMultipartContentType forHTTPHeaderField:@"Content-Type"];
 *      [request setHTTPMethod:@"POST"];
 *
 *  Keep in mind you must set `Content-Type`. Otherwise the request will not work properly.
