Swift 4 introduces a new Codable protocol that lets you serialize and deserialize custom data types without writing any special code and without having to worry about losing your value types. 🎉

Awesome, isn't it? And this library helps you write less code! It's an extension for Alamofire that converts JSON data into Decodable object.

Useful Resources:


Let's decode a simple json file:

    "result": {
        "libraries": [
                "name": "Alamofire",
                "stars": 23857,
                "url": "",
                "random_date_commit": 1489276800
                "name": "RxSwift",
                "stars": 9600,
                "url": "",
                "random_date_commit": 1494547200

with the following Swift model:

private struct Repo: Decodable {
    let name: String
    let stars: Int
    let url: URL
    let randomDateCommit: Date
    private enum CodingKeys: String, CodingKey {
        case name
        case stars
        case url
        case randomDateCommit = "random_date_commit"

There is a similar method to responseData, responseJSON - responseDecodableObject:

func responseDecodableObject<T: Decodable>(queue: DispatchQueue? = nil, keyPath: String? = nil, decoder: JSONDecoder = JSONDecoder(), completionHandler: @escaping (DataResponse<T>) -> Void)
  • queue - The queue on which the completion handler is dispatched.
  • keyPath - The keyPath where object decoding should be performed.
  • decoder - The decoder that performs the decoding of JSON into semantic Decodable type.
let url = URL(string: "")!
let decoder = JSONDecoder()
decoder.dateDecodingStrategy = .secondsSince1970 // It is necessary for correct decoding. Timestamp -> Date.

Alamofire.request(url).responseDecodableObject(keyPath: "result.libraries", decoder: decoder) { (response: DataResponse<[Repo]>) in
    let repo = response.result.value


  • For array: DataResponse<[Repo]>
  • For single object: DataResponse<Repo>

Installation 🔥


CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Swift and Objective-C Cocoa projects. It has over eighteen thousand libraries and can help you scale your projects elegantly. You can install it with the following command:

$ sudo gem install cocoapods

To integrate CodableAlamofire, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

target 'Test' do

  pod 'CodableAlamofire'


Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks.

You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:

$ brew update
$ brew install carthage

To integrate CodableAlamofire into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "Otbivnoe/CodableAlamofire"

Run carthage update to build the framework and drag the built CodableAlamofire.framework into your Xcode project.
