1 ASIHTTPRequest is an easy to use wrapper around the CFNetwork API that makes some of the more tedious aspects of communicating with web servers easier.
2
3 It is suitable for when you want to submit data to an existing web form, or don't want to mess around with SOAP or XML-RPC.
4
5 It provides:
6
7 * Ability for setting up progress delegates (e.g. NSProgressIndicators) to show information about download AND upload progress
8
9 * An easy interface for adding POST data to requests
10
11 * The ability to submit files on local drives as part of POST data, analogous to the HTML file input mechanism
12
13 * Basic authentication (username and password) support
14
15 * Integrated Keychain support
16
17 * Based on NSOperation to make queuing requests and background operation easy

20 ASIHTTPRequest comes as part of a simple application that demonstrates many of the features above, just look at AppDelegate.m for good pointers on basic usage, or read the comments in ASIHTTPRequest.h for more detail.
21
22 ASIHTTPRequest is partly based on code from Apple's ImageClient code samples, so if it doesn't meet your needs, take a look at their CFNetwork examples for more.
23 ASIHTTPRequest is my first open source Objective-C code. I hope to expand the class and example application further (unit tests, maybe even iphone examples...) in the coming months. If you find it helpful, please do get in touch!
