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. It is written in Objective-C and works in both Mac OS X and iPhone applications.
3 It is suitable performing basic HTTP requests and interacting with REST-based services (GET / POST / PUT / DELETE). The included ASIFormDataRequest subclass makes it easy to submit POST data and files using multipart/form-data.
5 It provides:
6 * A straightforward interface for submitting data to and fetching data from webservers
7 * Download data to memory or directly to a file on disk
8 * Submit files on local drives as part of POST data, compatible with the HTML file input mechanism
9 * Stream request bodies directly from disk to the server, to conserve memory
10 * Resume for partial downloads
11 * Easy access to request and response HTTP headers
12 * Progress delegates (NSProgressIndicators and UIProgressViews) to show information about download AND upload progress
13 * Auto-magic management of upload and download progress indicators for operation queues
14 * Basic, Digest + NTLM authentication support, credentials are automatically re-used for the duration of a session, and can be stored for later in the Keychain.
15 * Cookie support

18 * The included ASIDownloadCache class lets requests transparently cache responses, and allow requests for cached data to succeed even when there is no network available

21 * Full support for Rackspace Cloud Files
22 * [NEW] Client certificates support
23 * Supports manual and auto-detected proxies, authenticating proxies, and PAC file auto-configuration. The built-in login dialog lets your iPhone application work transparently with authenticating proxies without any additional effort.
24 * Bandwidth throttling support
25 * Support for persistent connections
26 * Supports synchronous & asynchronous requests
27 * Get notifications about changes in your request state via delegation or [NEW] blocks (Mac OS X 10.6, iOS 4 and above)
