A UIViewController subclass specifically geared toward async data fetching.
IIAsyncViewController is a subclass of viewcontrollers that's engineered to provide handle asynchronous data. It wraps its view in a state view which will:
- display a loading spinner while data is being requested,
- the original view itself when data was correctly loaded,
- a "no data" message when the request succeeded but no data was retrieved,
- and finally an error message when an error occurred
It is created so to be flexible: you can use the default components, but the controller allows you to provide your own views for maximum flexibility at a cost of a little bit more work.
Forthcoming. I've written this on the plane from SF to Europe, and now I'm tired.
Classes and protocols are documented enough to get you started, I think.
They aren't there. Will be, but not now. Too tired, my friend.
IIAsyncViewController is available as a CocoaPod. Add the following line to your Podfile:
