Swish CircleCI Carthage compatible CocoaPods Compatible

Nothing but net(working).

Swish is a networking library that is particularly meant for requesting and decoding JSON via Decodable. It is protocol based, and so aims to be easy to test and customize.

Version Compatibility

Here is the current Swift compatibility breakdown:

Swift Version Swish Version
5.X >= 4.0.0
4.X >= 3.0.0
3.X > 2.0, < 3.0
2.X 1.X



Add the following to your Cartfile:

github "thoughtbot/Swish"

Then run carthage update.

Follow the current instructions in Carthage's README for up to date installation instructions.


Add the following to your Podfile:

pod 'Swish'

You will also need to make sure you're opting into using frameworks:


Then run pod install with CocoaPods 0.36 or newer.

Git Submodules

I guess you could do it this way if that's your thing.

Add this repo as a submodule, and add the Swish project file along with the dependency project files to your workspace. You can then link against Swish.framework along with the dependency frameworks for your application target.


Basic Playground

You can see an example of Swish in action via the included SwishExamples.playground.

To use that, clone this repository and run carthage bootstrap --platform iOS. When that finishes, open the Swish.xcworkspace and click the SwishExamples playground on the left.
