An Easy To Use Swift HTTP Requests Library Inspired By Python-Requests


Last year I mentioned a swift library wrapping NSURLSession for basic HTTP requests called SwiftHTTP.

Here’s an open source Swift library called Just inspired by the python-requests library for http requests.

Just like the Python request library Just provides an extensive feature set for http request including:

Cookie Support
Redirection handling
Custom headers
Form data
Synchronous and asynchronous requests
– Multipart file uploading

Here’s an example from the readme showing how one could make an asynchronous request with Just:

// talk to registration end point
data: ["username": "barryallen", "password":"ReverseF1ashSucks"],
files: ["profile_photo": .URL(fileURLWithPath:"flash.jpeg", nil)]
) { (r)
if (r.ok) { /* success! */ }

You can find Just on Github here.

A great library for http requests.
