Features

KSWriter shamelessly rips off Java to provide a common interface for building up strings.

Dependencies

None beyond Foundation. Probably works back to OS X v10.0 if you were so inclined.

Usage

Vanilla

Add KSWriter.h and KSWriter.m to your project. These files define the common interface -writeString: for building up strings, as well as more advanced possibilities. Ideally, make this repo a submodule, but hey, it's your codebase, do whatever you feel like.

You can use NSMutableString instances directly, or add other, specialist writers into your project, such as:

  • KSStringWriter
  • KSBufferedWriter
  • KSMutableDataWriter
  • KSOutputStreamWriter

KSForwardingWriter provides a handy starting point for your own classes that work by piping output through to another KSWriter.

XML/HTML/CSS

KSHTMLWriter builds on KSWriter to provide classes for generating string formats such as XML and HTML. It directly includes KSWriter as a submodule. It can also be built as a framework for Mac distribution, with the whole of KSWriter included and exposed.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
