ReactiveArray

Carthage compatible Circle CI Build Status Coverage Status Release Join the chat at https://gitter.im/Wolox/ReactiveArray

An array class implemented in Swift that can be observed using ReactiveCocoa's Signals.

Installation

Carthage

Add the following to your Cartfile:

github "Wolox/ReactiveArray"

Then run carthage update.

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

You'll also need to add Result.framework, Box.framework and ReactiveCocoa.framework to your Xcode project.

Usage

Array operations

let array = ReactiveArray(elements: [1,2,3])

array.append(4) // => [1,2,3,4]
array.append(5) // => [1,2,3,4,5]

array[0] = 5 // => [5,2,3,4,5]
array.removeAtIndex(4) // => [5,2,3,4]

ReactiveArray conforms to CollectionType and MutableCollectionType which allows you to perform operations like map or filter.

Observing changes

The array can be observed for mutations using the signal or producer properties. Both Signal and SignalProducer will emit Operation values on observation for any of the mutating operations performed to the array.

Operation is an enumeration with four cases. One for each mutating operation: Append, Insert, Update and RemoveElement

Using SignalProducer

Prints an append operation for each element that has already been stored in the array and then the corresponding operation for any new operation performed to the array.

let array = ReactiveArray(elements: [1,2,3])
array.producer |> start(next: { println($0) })
array[0] = 5
array[1] = 4
array.append(2)
array.removeAtIndex(2)

will print the following output:

.Append(value: 1)
.Append(value: 2)
.Append(value: 3)
.Update(value: 5, atIndex: 0)
.Update(value: 4, atIndex: 1)
.RemoveElement(atIndex:2)

Using Signal

The signal property will only emit values for operations performed in the array after observation.

let array = ReactiveArray(elements: [1,2,3])
array.signal.observe { println($0) }
array[0] = 5
array[1] = 4
array.append(2)
array.removeAtIndex(2)

will print the following output:

.Update(value: 5, atIndex: 0)
.Update(value: 4, atIndex: 1)
.RemoveElement(atIndex:2)

Using observableCount

You can also observe the observableCount property that exposes a producer that emits the current amount of elements each time the array is mutated.

let array = ReactiveArray<String>()
array.observableCount.producer |> start(next: { println($0) })
array.append("Hello")
array.append("World")

will print the following output:

0
1
2

Mirror

Mirror creates a new ReactiveArray by applying a transform operation for each element contained in the original array. It is like map but the returned array will mutate everytime the original array mutates.

let array = ReactiveArray(elements: [1,2,3])
let doubles = array.mirror { $0 * 2 }
doubles.producer |> start(next: { println($0) })
array.append(4)
array.append(5)
array[0] = 6

will print the following output:

.Append(value: 2)
.Append(value: 4)
.Append(value: 6)
.Append(value: 8)
.Append(value: 10)
.Update(value: 12, atIndex: 0)
