Spectttator

Spectttator is an Objective-C framework for OSX and iOS that uses blocks to provide an easy to use asynchronous interface to the Dribbble api.

This framework has been heavily veted by the Mac App Play by Play.

Below is a quick overview of the framework, to get an in depth look check out the documentation.

Spectttator requires either iOS 4.0 and above, or OSX 10.6 and above.

How To

Spectttator uses AFNetworking and JSONKit. These libraries are included as submodules, so make sure to clone the repo with the --recursive flag.

git clone --recursive https://github.com/kgn/Spectttator.git

Example

The following snippet demonstrates how to get the last 10 shots a player liked.

#import <Spectttator/Spectttator.h>
NSString *username = @"kgn";
[SPRequest shotsForPlayerLikes:username
                withPagination:[SPPagination perPage:10]
               runOnMainThread:NO
                     withBlock:^(NSArray *shots, SPPagination *pagination){
                         NSLog(@"Shot %@ likes: %@", username, shots);
                     }];

This is non-blocking, NSLog will run whenever the comment data has finished loading, but the block still has access to everything in the scope from where it was defined. If the block is updating UI elements make sure to set runOnMainThread:YES, the Dribbble requests will still be asynchronous but the passed in block will be executed on the main thread.

SpectttatorTest

SpectttatorTest is a sample application that demonstrates how to use Spectttator to create a non-blocking user interface that displays information from Dribbble. It also runs every method, this was used during testing and development and is a great way to see how to use Spectttator.

Check out this video to see SpectttatorTest in action.

SpectttatorTest-iOS

SpectttatorTest-iOS is a simple iPhone app that demonstrates how to use Spectttator in iOS.

Change Log

  • 0.3.1 - Switching to use AFNetworking and JSONKit, no public API change.
  • 0.3.0 - Renaming SPManager to SPRequest. SPRequest is no longer a singleton and all it's methods are now simply class methods.
  • 0.2.1 - Switching to 64bit, this caused no interface changes.
  • 0.2.0 - Overhaul of all the methods by adding runOnMainThread to make it easy to update UI elements inside the block on the main thread.
  • 0.1.0 - Initial release with support for the full Dribbble api.
