What is IOS Boilerplate

Is a code base for iOS projects. Current version provides

  • BaseViewController with methods for secure handling of async http requests
  • ImageManager: a class for downloading images asynchronously
  • FastCell (inspired on Atebits implementation) is a base class for implementing custom UITableViewCells with fast scrolling.
  • ListViewController: a base class for creating ViewControllers with one UITableView that can be refreshed with a pull-down component.
  • Place: a simple implementation of the MKAnnotation protocol
  • DictionaryHelper: an NSDictionary helper with methods for safe handling of collections
  • StringHelper: an NSString helper with methods for manipulating NSStrings. Including: trim, sha1 and urlEncode method.
  • DataHelper: an NSData helper with one method: hexString. It is used inside StringHelper to calculate the sha1 hash hexstring representation of a given string

The project contains some examples with the use of those utility classes:

  • Example that fetches a JSON object through an async HTTP request, and shows a progress HUD.
  • Example that fetches a single image with ImageManager
  • Example that combines FastCells with async image loading using ImageManager.
  • Example of variable height table cells using FastCell.
  • Example that shows how to extend ListViewController to create a tableview with a simple pull-down-to-refresh component.
  • Example that shows how to implement a swipeable cell
  • ViewController that uses MapOverlays and the Google Maps API to show the directions between two points.
  • Search bar that autocompletes locations.
