YYHRequest

YYHRequest is a simple and lightweight class for loading asynchronous HTTP requests in Swift. Built on NSURLConnection and NSOperationQueue. YYHRequest is not intended to be a full-featured networking framework but instead a simple wrapper to avoid the boilerplate of using NSURLConnection and NSURLRequest for simple networking tasks.

  • Lightweight design - just a single wrapper class
  • Avoid the boilerplate of NSURLConnection and NSURLRequest for simple networking tasks
  • Simple API for setting request headers, query parameters, and form data

Original Objective-C version available here.

Getting Started

Create and load a request

let request = YYHRequest(url: NSURL(string: "http://www.google.com/"))

request.loadWithCompletion {response, data, error in
    if let actualError = error {
        // handle error
    } else if let actualResponse = response {
        // handle success
    }
}

Create request and load manually.

let request = YYHRequest(url: NSURL(string: "http://www.google.com/"))
request.method = "POST"
request.parameters["foo"] = "bar"

request.completionHandler = { response, data, error in
    // request complete!
}

request.loadRequest()

Usage

Load a Request

let request = YYHRequest(url: NSURL(string: "http://www.google.com/"))

    // request complete!
}

// set header values via properties
request.userAgent = "value"
