Wasp

A compact and easy to use, 'all-in-one' network solution.

The problem

When it comes to daily development, you need more than just a library to handle networking, you need to handle mocking calls, using multiple end points, handling certificates and cookies and many other boiler plate code. With wasp, you can easily handle everything.

Wasp internally uses:

  • Volley for the network stack
  • Gson for parsing
  • OkHttp for the http stack

Wasp provides:

  • Easy implementation
  • MOCK response via text file or auto generated from model class!
  • Request Interceptors to add attributes (query params, headers, retry policy) to each call
  • Api call based headers
  • Api call based end point
  • Api call based retry policy
  • Cookie management
  • Certificate management
  • Painless Image loading
  • RxJava support
  • Request cancelation
  • Sync request call
  • Async request call

Wasp aims :

  • There are many open issues to contribute. Get this chance to contribute and improve your knowledge!
  • We want to make something that is useful and also motivates people to contribute

Add dependency

More info https://jitpack.io/#orhanobut/wasp/1.15

repositories {
  // ...
  maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
}

dependencies {
  compile 'com.github.orhanobut:wasp:1.15'
}

Create a service interface

public interface GitHubService {

  // Async call
  @GET("/repos/{id}")
  void getRepo(@Path("id") String id, Callback<Repo> callback);

  // Async call with WaspRequest (cancelable)
  @GET("/repos/{id}")
  WaspRequest getRepo(@Path("id") String id, Callback<Repo> callback);

  // Rx
  @Mock
  @POST("/repos")
  Observable<Repo> createRepo(@Body Repo repo);

  // sync call
  @GET("/users/{id}")
  User getUser(@Path("id") String id);
}

Initialize the wasp

GitHubService service = new Wasp.Builder(this)
  .setEndpoint("https://api.github.com")
  .setRequestInterceptor                     // Optional
  .trustCertificates                         // Optional
  .setHttpStack                              // Optional
  .enableCookies                             // Optional
  .setNetworkMode(NetworkMode.MOCK)          // Optional(Used for Mock)
  .build()
  .create(GitHubService.class);

And use it everywhere!

Async

service.getRepo(id, new Callback<Repo>{

  @Override
  public void onSuccess(Response response, Repo repo) {
    // do something
  }

  @Override
  public void onError(WaspError error) {
    // handle error
  }
});

Async with WaspRequest (cancelable)

WaspRequest request = service.getRepo(id, new Callback<Repo>{

  @Override
  public void onSuccess(Response response, Repo repo) {
    // do something
  }

  @Override
  public void onError(WaspError error) {
    // handle error
  }
});
request.cancel();  //cancels the request

Rx

Observable<Repo> observable = service.createRepo(repo);

Sync

User user = service.getUser(id);
