Swifty WebService - Open Sourcing Flipkart's iOS Networking Stack
Submitted by Siddharth Gupta (@biocross) on Sunday, 23 July 2017
Swifty + WebService is a new way of doing networking on iOS, and is designed to service the complex networking requirements of modern mobile apps.
Written in 100% Swift, it’s designed to be fully compatible with mixed Objective-C and Swift codebases, and has features such as Network Request Throttling and Prioritization, Request/Response Interceptors, Requesting Blocking based on conditions and other requests, and defines a new way to arrange your network requests and options into a clean, Swift style syntax that’s fully accessible, and extensible from ObjC and Swift callers.
- Why a new networking stack?
- Swifty & it’s Features
- WebService, and writing your first network request
- Performance (in comparison with Alamofire, NSURLSession)
- Extensibility & Use Cases
The code will be open sourced a few weeks before the event.
