The Principles of OOD in Swift 4

A short cheat-sheet with Xcode 9 Playground (OOD-Principles-In-Swift.playground.zip). Also compatible with Xcode 8 and Swift 3.

S.O.L.I.D.

🔐 The Single Responsibility Principle

A class should have one, and only one, reason to change. (read more)

Example:

protocol CanBeOpened {
    func open()
}

protocol CanBeClosed {
    func close()
}

// I'm the door. I have an encapsulated state and you can change it using methods.
final class PodBayDoor: CanBeOpened, CanBeClosed {

    private enum State {
        case Open
        case Closed
    }

    private var state: State = .Closed

    func open() {
        state = .Open
    }

    func close() {
        state = .Closed
    }
}

// I'm only responsible for opening, no idea what's inside or how to close.
class DoorOpener {
    let door: CanBeOpened

    init(door: CanBeOpened) {
        self.door = door
    }

    func execute() {
        door.open()
    }
}

// I'm only responsible for closing, no idea what's inside or how to open.
class DoorCloser {
    let door: CanBeClosed

    init(door: CanBeClosed) {
        self.door = door
    }

    func execute() {
        door.close()
    }
}

let door = PodBayDoor()

⚠ Only the DoorOpener is responsible for opening the door.

let doorOpener = DoorOpener(door: door)
doorOpener.execute()

⚠ If another operation should be made upon closing the door, like switching on the alarm, you don't have to change the DoorOpener class.

let doorCloser = DoorCloser(door: door)
doorCloser.execute()

The Open Closed Principle

You should be able to extend a classes behavior, without modifying it. (read more)

Example:

protocol CanShoot {
    func shoot() -> String
}

// I'm a laser beam. I can shoot.
final class LaserBeam: CanShoot {
    func shoot() -> String {
        return "Ziiiiiip!"
    }
}

// I have weapons and trust me I can fire them all at once. Boom! Boom! Boom!
final class WeaponsComposite {

    let weapons: [CanShoot]

    init(weapons: [CanShoot]) {
        self.weapons = weapons
    }

    func shoot() -> [String] {
        return weapons.map { $0.shoot() }
    }
}

let laser = LaserBeam()
var weapons = WeaponsComposite(weapons: [laser])

weapons.shoot()

I'm a rocket launcher. I can shoot a rocket.

⚠️ To add rocket launcher support I don't need to change anything in existing classes.

final class RocketLauncher: CanShoot {
    func shoot() -> String {
        return "Whoosh!"
    }
}

let rocket = RocketLauncher()

weapons = WeaponsComposite(weapons: [laser, rocket])
weapons.shoot()

👥 The Liskov Substitution Principle

Derived classes must be substitutable for their base classes. (read more)

Example:

let requestKey: String = "NSURLRequestKey"

// I'm a NSError subclass. I provide additional functionality but don't mess with original ones.
class RequestError: NSError {

    var request: NSURLRequest? {
        return self.userInfo[requestKey] as? NSURLRequest
    }
}

// I fail to fetch data and will return RequestError.
func fetchData(request: NSURLRequest) -> (data: NSData?, error: RequestError?) {

    let userInfo: [String:Any] = [requestKey : request]

    return (nil, RequestError(domain:"DOMAIN", code:0, userInfo: userInfo))
}

// I don't know what RequestError is and will fail and return a NSError.
func willReturnObjectOrError() -> (object: AnyObject?, error: NSError?) {

    let request = NSURLRequest()
    let result = fetchData(request: request)

    return (result.data, result.error)
}

let result = willReturnObjectOrError()

// Ok. This is a perfect NSError instance from my perspective.
let error: Int? = result.error?.code

// But hey! What's that? It's also a RequestError! Nice!
if let requestError = result.error as? RequestError {
    requestError.request
}

🍴 The Interface Segregation Principle

Make fine grained interfaces that are client specific. (read more)

Example:

// I have a landing site.
protocol LandingSiteHaving {
    var landingSite: String { get }
}

// I can land on LandingSiteHaving objects.
protocol Landing {
    func land(on: LandingSiteHaving) -> String
}

// I have payload.
protocol PayloadHaving {
    var payload: String { get }
}

// I can fetch payload from vehicle (ex. via Canadarm).
final class InternationalSpaceStation {

⚠ Space station has no idea about landing capabilities of SpaceXCRS8.

    func fetchPayload(vehicle: PayloadHaving) -> String {
        return "Deployed \(vehicle.payload) at April 10, 2016, 11:23 UTC"
    }
}

// I'm a barge - I have landing site (well, you get the idea).
final class OfCourseIStillLoveYouBarge: LandingSiteHaving {
    let landingSite = "a barge on the Atlantic Ocean"
}

// I have payload and can land on things having landing site.
// I'm a very limited Space Vehicle, I know.
final class SpaceXCRS8: Landing, PayloadHaving {

    let payload = "BEAM and some Cube Sats"

⚠ CRS8 knows only about the landing site information.

    func land(on: LandingSiteHaving) -> String {
        return "Landed on \(on.landingSite) at April 8, 2016 20:52 UTC"
    }
}

let crs8 = SpaceXCRS8()
let barge = OfCourseIStillLoveYouBarge()
let spaceStation = InternationalSpaceStation()

spaceStation.fetchPayload(vehicle: crs8)
crs8.land(on: barge)

🔝 The Dependency Inversion Principle

Depend on abstractions, not on concretions. (read more)

Example:

protocol TimeTraveling {
    func travelInTime(time: TimeInterval) -> String
}

final class DeLorean: TimeTraveling {
	func travelInTime(time: TimeInterval) -> String {
		return "Used Flux Capacitor and travelled in time by: \(time)s"
	}
}

final class EmmettBrown {
	private let timeMachine: TimeTraveling

⚠ Emmet Brown is given the DeLorean as a TimeTraveling device, not the concrete class DeLorean.

	init(timeMachine: TimeTraveling) {
		self.timeMachine = timeMachine
	}

	func travelInTime(time: TimeInterval) -> String {
		return timeMachine.travelInTime(time: time)
	}
}

let timeMachine = DeLorean()

let mastermind = EmmettBrown(timeMachine: timeMachine)
mastermind.travelInTime(time: -3600 * 8760)
