GTNetMon is a lightweight Swift library that detects whether a device is connected to Internet, it identifies the connection type (wifi, cellular, and more), and monitors for changes in the network status.
In your Podfile include:
In Xcode import GTNetMon in any file you want to use it.
Manually (Not Recommended)
Download or clone the repository, and add all swift files from GTNetMon directory to your project.
Available Properties & Methods
GTNetMon class to access all available properties and methods. It is a singleton class, so use the
shared instance to access its members.
Available properties are:
isConnected: Indicates whether the device is connected to Internet or not.
connectionType: The connection type as a
GTNetMon.ConnectionTypevalue (see next).
availableConnectionTypes: A collection of the available connection types to the device at a given moment.
isExpensive: An indication that the connection is expensive while the device is connected to Internet through cellular network. Note that this flag is more accurate when used in iOS versions >= 12.0.
isMonitoring: It indicates whether network status changes are being monitored or not.
In addition to the above, there are the following two methods:
startMonitoring(): It starts monitoring for network status changes.
stopMonitoring(): It stops monitoring for network status changes.
- It is recommended to start and stop monitoring in the
applicationWillResignActive(_:)methods of the AppDelegate class respectively.
- Classes that want to be notified about monitored network status changes should observe for the
GTNetMonNetworkStatusChangeNotificationnotification. It is posted whenever a change in the connection occurs.
In iOS >= 12.0, the new
Network framework of the iOS SDK is used to retrieve network information. In older iOS versions,
SCNetworkReachability API is used instead.
GTNetMon.ConnectionType is an enum with the following cases:
See the simple example project in the Sample directory for how to use GTNetMon (ViewController.swift & AppDelegate.swift files).
