Build Status

Performs several HTTP calls synchronously in most reliable way.

  • There are small needs for synchronous HTTP calls in Swift.
  • Unfortunately URLSession is asynchronous only.
  • There are several pitfalls to make it synchronous.

This library provide these features.

  • Synchronous HTTP call using URLSession.
  • This does not involve semaphore or lock.
    • Semaphores are likely to cause some subtle issues with URLSession.
    • Based on repeated thread sleeping.
  • Carefully designed and tuned for short-running, CLI programs.
    • Never cached.
    • State-less.
    • Fails faster than default. 10 second timeout.
  • Maybe doesn't work well in other situations.

  • Future proof simple API.

    • Implementation can be replaced for better one later.
    • You don't have to change your code.
