The Objective-C HTTP library that Apple should have created, seriously.

branch: master
README.md

Seriously

The iPhone needs a better way to make HTTP requests, specifically calls to REST web services. Seriously mixes Blocks with NSURLConnection & NSOperationQueue to do just that. It also will automatically parse the JSON response into a dictionary if the response headers are set correctly.

Install

Just drag the files from the "src" directory into your project. You can also try using the included "Seriously.framework" file

Parse JSON EXAMPLE

NSString *url = @"http://api.twitter.com/1/users/show.json?screen_name=probablycorey";

[Seriously get:url handler:^(id body, NSHTTPURLResponse *response, NSError *error) {
    if (error) {
        NSLog(@"Error: %@", error);
    }
    else {
        NSLog(@"Look, JSON is parsed into a dictionary!");
        NSLog(@"%@", [body objectForKey:@"profile_background_image_url"]);
    }
}];

Simple Queue Example

NSArray *urls = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:
                 @"http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4138/4744205956_1f08ae40e3_o.jpg",
                 @"http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4123/4744238252_d11d0df5a3_b.jpg",
                 @"http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4097/4743596319_50cce97d80_o.jpg",
                 @"http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4099/4743581287_7c50529b36_o.jpg",
                 @"http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4123/4743587437_78f0906e8a_o.jpg",
                 @"http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4136/4743562971_d5f5c6d5b1_o.jpg",
                 @"http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4073/4744205142_be44e64ab7_o.jpg",
                 nil];

// By default the NSOperation will only do 3 requests at a time
for (NSString *url in urls) {
    NSOperation *o = [Seriously request:url options:nil handler:^(id body,
    NSHTTPURLResponse *response, NSError *error) {            
        NSLog(@"got %d (%@)", [urls indexOfObject:url], url);
    }];
}

Why Are You Using Blocks?

Welcome to the future dude!

TODO

  • Document
  • Add XML parsing
  • Add more options for NSOperationQueue management
