Introduction

Ecno was inspired by Once Android library. It's a task state manager built on top of UserDefaults in pure Swift 4. This abstraction allows you to mark 'tasks' as done, 'to-do' and check for those states.

Ecno is ideal for:

  • Show tutorials once within the application.
  • Perform certain task periodically.
  • Trigger a task based on a user action.

Usage

First you need to initialize it:

Ecno.initialize()

Note: you should initialize it when your app gets launched.

Then, you can check whether a task was done by:

if !Ecno.beenDone("task") {
  //...
  Ecno.markDone("task")
}

Also, you can check for specific requirements about a certain task:

if Ecno.beenDone("task", scope: .appSession, numberOfTimes: .moreThan(3)) {
  // do stuff
}

or

if Ecno.beenDone("task", scope: .since(20.minutes), numberOfTimes: .lessThan(3)) {
  // do stuff
}

Additionally, you can program a 'to do' task by:

Ecno.toDo("show banner", scope: .until(3.hours), info: ["name": "bannerName"])

and then query if you need to do that task:

if Ecno.needToDo("show banner") {
  let info = Ecno.infoForToDo("show banner") // ["name": "bannerName"]
  // ...
}

Task

Any type conforming to the Task protocol. Since it would be the most common case, the String type already conforms to Task.

public protocol Task {

    var tag: String { get }

}

Scope

Scopes represents periods of time within the application.

  • .appInstall
    This period represents all times for the application.
  • .appVersion
    Period starting when the current version of the app was installed.
  • .appSession
    Period starting when the application was launched.
  • .since(TimeInterval)
    Period starting since TimeInterval time ago from now. For instance, .since(2.days)
  • .until(TimeInterval)
    Period valid until TimeInterval from now. For instance, .until(3.hours). This should be useful to set a 'to do' task that expires.

Functions

  • func toDo(_ task: Task, scope: Scope? = nil, info: [AnyHashable: Any]? = nil)
    Marks a task as 'to do' within a given scope, if it has already been marked as to do or been done within that scope then it will not be marked. If the scope is nil, then it will be marked as to do anyways.
  • func needToDo(_ task: Task) -> Bool
    Checks if a task is currently marked as 'to do'.
  • func infoForToDo(_ task: Task) -> [AnyHashable: Any]?
    Gets the info associated with a 'to do' task. (only if you provided it in the toDo(...) function)
  • func lastDone(_ task: Task) -> Date?
    Last done timestamp for a given task.
  • func beenDone(_ task: Task, scope: Scope = .appInstall, numberOfTimes: CountChecker = .moreThan(0)) -> Bool
    Checks if a task has been done with the given requirements.
  • func markDone(_ task: Task)
    Marks a task as done.
