DAVKit is a Cocoa framework for communicating with WebDAV servers. It supports downloading, uploading, copying, moving, and deleting files and folders, all asynchronously. By subclassing
DAVRequest, you can extend the existing support for WebDAV requests to suit your own needs. Unit tests are also included for all supported requests. If DAVKit is missing something, please file an issue on the Issues page. Pull requests are also welcome. The DAVKit source tree is ARC-only as of 10/29/11.
To get started, include the DAVKit framework in your Mac OS X application target per usual. To use DAVKit on iPhone, copy the contents of the Sources directory into your project.
WebDAV requests are sent using the
DAVSession class. Initialize
DAVSession with a set of credentials and a root URL:
DAVCredentials *credentials = [DAVCredentials credentialsWithUsername:@"USER" password:@"PASS"]; NSString *root = @"http://idisk.me.com/steve"; // don't include the trailing / (slash) DAVSession *session = [[DAVSession alloc] initWithRootURL:root credentials:credentials];
DAVSession acts like a queue, limiting the number of requests it can process at any point in time. The default is
2. To enqueue a new WebDAV request, instantiate one of the subclasses of
DAVRequest and pass it to
DAVSession as shown below:
To receive callbacks when the state of the request changes, register yourself as the delegate of an instance of
DAVRequest before enqueueing it.
Before running the
Tests target, fill in your WebDAV test server's information into the
PASSWORD #defines in
DAVTest.h. The tests currently require network connectivity.
