README

ZamzamKit

Build Status Platform Swift Xcode SPM MIT

ZamzamKit is a Swift package for rapid development using a collection of micro utility extensions for Standard Library, Foundation, and other native frameworks.

Installation

Swift Package Manager

.package(url: "git@github.com:ZamzamInc/ZamzamKit.git", .upToNextMajor(from: "5.1.0"))

The ZamzamKit package contains four different products you can import. Add any combination of these to your target's dependencies within your Package.swift manifest:

.target(
    name: "MyAppExample",
    dependencies: [
        .product(name: "ZamzamCore", package: "ZamzamKit"),
        .product(name: "ZamzamLocation", package: "ZamzamKit"),
        .product(name: "ZamzamNotification", package: "ZamzamKit"),
        .product(name: "ZamzamUI", package: "ZamzamKit"),
    ]
)

A limitation with Swift Package Manager requires resources to be embedded manually. Drag /Resources/ZamzamCore.bundle to your Xcode project's Build Phases > Copy Bundle section.

Collection

Get distinct elements from an array:

[1, 1, 3, 3, 5, 5, 7, 9, 9].distinct // [1, 3, 5, 7, 9]

Remove an element from an array by the value:

var array = ["a", "b", "c", "d", "e"]
array.remove("c")
array // ["a", "b", "d", "e"]

Easily get the array version of an array slice:

["a", "b", "c", "d", "e"].prefix(3).array

Safely retrieve an element at the given index if it exists:

// Before
if let items = tabBarController.tabBar.items, items.count > 4 {
    items[3].selectedImage = UIImage("my-image")
}
// After
tabBarController.tabBar.items?[safe: 3]?.selectedImage = UIImage("my-image")

[1, 3, 5, 7, 9][safe: 1] // Optional(3) [1, 3, 5, 7, 9][safe: 12] // nil


> Determine if a value is contained within the array of equatable values:
```swift
"b".within(["a", "b", "c"]) // true

let status: OrderStatus = .cancelled
status.within([.requested, .accepted, .inProgress]) // false

Dictionary

Convert to JSON string or data:

// Before
guard let data = try? JSONSerialization.data(withJSONObject: merged, options: []),
    let log = String(data: data, encoding: .utf8) else {
        return
}

// After guard let log = merged.jsonString else { return }

<details>
<summary>Number</summary>

> Round doubles, floats, or any floating-point type:
```swift
123.12312421.rounded(toPlaces: 3) // 123.123
Double.pi.rounded(toPlaces: 2) // 3.14

String

Create a new random string of given length:

String(random: 10) // "zXWG4hSgL9"
String(random: 4, prefix: "PIN-") // "PIN-uSjm"

Safely use subscript indexes and ranges on strings:

let value = "Abcdef123456"
value[3] // "d"
value[3..<6] // "def"
value[3...6] // "def1"
value[3...] // "def123456"
value[3...99] // nil
value[99] // nil

Validate string against common formats:

"test@example.com".isEmail // true
"123456789".isNumber // true
"zamzam".isAlpha // true
"zamzam123".isAlphaNumeric // true

Remove spaces or new lines from both ends:

" Abcdef123456 \n\r  ".trimmed // "Abcdef123456"

Truncate to a given number of characters:

"Abcdef123456".truncated(3) // "Abc..."
"Abcdef123456".truncated(6, trailing: "***") // "Abcdef***"

Determine if a given value is contained:

"1234567890".contains("567") // true
"abc123xyz".contains("ghi") // false

Injects a separator every nth characters:

"1234567890".separated(every: 2, with: "-") // "12-34-56-78-90"

Remove the characters contained in a given set:

let string = """
    { 0         1
    2                  34
    56       7             8
    9
    }
    """

string.strippingCharacters(in: .whitespacesAndNewlines) // {0123456789}


> Replace the characters contained in a givenharacter set with another string:
```swift
let set = CharacterSet.alphanumerics
    .insert(charactersIn: "_")
    .inverted

let string = """
    _abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
    ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
    0{1 2<3>4@5#6`7~8?9,0

    1
    """

string.replacingCharacters(in: set, with: "_") //_abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ_0_1_2_3_4_5_6_7_8_9_0__1

Match using a regular expression pattern:

"1234567890".match(regex: "^[0-9]+?$") // true
"abc123xyz".match(regex: "^[A-Za-z]+$") // false

Replace occurrences of a regular expression pattern:

"aa1bb22cc3d888d4ee5".replacing(regex: "\\d", with: "*") // "aa*bb**cc*d***d*ee*"

Remove HTML for plain text:

"<p>This is <em>web</em> content with a <a href=\"http://example.com\">link</a>.</p>".htmlStripped // "This is web content with a link."

Encoders and decoders:

value.urlEncoded()
value.urlDecoded()
value.htmlDecoded()
value.base64Encoded()
value.base64Decoded()
value.base64URLEncoded()

Get an encrypted version of the string in hex format:

"test@example.com".sha256() // 973dfe463ec85785f5f95af5ba3906eedb2d931c24e69824a89ea65dba4e813b

Easily get the string version of substring:

"hello world".prefix(5).string

Determine if an optional string is nil or has no characters

var value: String? = "test 123"
value.isNilOrEmpty

Foundation+

Bundle

Get the string from a file within any bundle:

Bundle.main.string(file: "Test.txt") // "This is a test. Abc 123.\n"

Get a generic array from a property list file within any bundle:

let values: [String] = Bundle.main.array(plist: "Array.plist")

values[0] // "Abc"
values[1] // "Def"
values[2] // "Ghi"

[Image of BundleArray](./Documentation/Images/BundleArray.png)

let values: [[String: Any]] = Bundle.main.array(plist: "Things.plist")

values[0]["id"] as? Int // 1
values[0]["name"] as? String // "Test 1"
values[0]["description"] as? String // "This is a test for 1.")

values[1]["id"] as? Int // 2)
values[1]["name"] as? String // "Test 2")
values[1]["description"] as? String // "This is a test for 2.")

values[2]["id"] as? Int // 3)
values[2]["name"] as? String // "Test 3")
values[2]["description"] as? String // "This is a test for 3.")

[Image of BundleArray](./Documentation/Images/BundleArray2.png)

Get a dictionary from a property list file within any bundle:

let values: [String: Any] = Bundle.main.contents(plist: "Settings.plist")

values["MyString1"] as? String // "My string value 1." values["MyNumber1"] as? Int // 123 values["MyBool1"] as? Bool // false values["MyDate1"] as? Date // 2018-11-21 15:40:03 +0000

    ])

URL

Append a query string parameter to a URL:

let url = URL(string: "https://example.com?abc=123&lmn=tuv&xyz=987")
url?.appendingQueryItem("def", value: "456") // "https://example.com?abc=123&lmn=tuv&xyz=987&def=456"
url?.appendingQueryItem("xyz", value: "999") // "https://example.com?abc=123&lmn=tuv&xyz=999"

Append a dictionary of query string parameters to a URL:

let url = URL(string: "https://example.com?abc=123&lmn=tuv&xyz=987")
url?.appendingQueryItems([
    "def": "456",
    "jkl": "777",
    "abc": "333",
    "lmn": nil
]) // "https://example.com?xyz=987&def=456&abc=333&jkl=777"

Remove a query string parameter to a URL:

let url = URL(string: "https://example.com?abc=123&lmn=tuv&xyz=987")
url?.removeQueryItem("xyz") // "https://example.com?abc=123&lmn=tuv"

Query a URL from a parameter name:

let url = URL(string: "https://example.com?abc=123&lmn=tuv&xyz=987")
url?.queryItem("aBc") // "123"
url?.queryItem("lmn") // "tuv"
url?.queryItem("yyy") // nil

URLSession

A thin wrapper around URLSession and URLRequest for simple network requests:

let request = URLRequest(
    url: URL(string: "https://httpbin.org/get")!,
    method: .get,
    parameters: [
        "abc": 123,
        "def": "test456",
        "xyz": true
    ],
    headers: [
        "Abc": "test123",
        "Def": "test456",
        "Xyz": "test789"
    ]
)

let networkRepository = NetworkRepository( service: NetworkFoundationService() )

networkRepository.send(with: request) { result in switch result { case let .success(response): response.data response.headers response.statusCode case let .failure(error): error.statusCode } }

Or call multiple URL requests simultaneously:
```swift
let request1 = URLRequest(
    url: URL(string: "https://httpbin.org/get")!,
    method: .get
)

let request2 = URLRequest(
    url: URL(string: "https://httpbin.org/post")!,
    method: .post
)

let request3 = URLRequest(
    url: URL(string: "https://httpbin.org/delete")!,
    method: .delete
)

networkRepository.send(requests: request1, request2, request3) { firstResult, anotherResult, otherResult in
    switch firstResult {
    case let .success(response):
        response.data
    case let .failure(error):
        error.statusCode
    }

    switch anotherResult {
    case let .success(response):
        response.data
    case let .failure(error):
        error.statusCode
    }

    switch otherResult {
    case let .success(response):
        response.data
    case let .failure(error):
        error.statusCode
    }
}

Use an adapter to intercept any URLRequest and modify for all network requests:

struct CustomURLRequestAdapter: URLRequestAdapter {
func adapt(_ request: URLRequest) -> URLRequest {
    var request = request
    request.setValue("1", forHTTPHeaderField: "X-Test-1")
    request.setValue("2", forHTTPHeaderField: "X-Test-2")
    return request
}

}

let request = URLRequest( url: URL(string: "https://httpbin.org/get")!, method: .get )

let networkRepository = NetworkRepository( service: NetworkFoundationService(), adapter: CustomURLRequestAdapter() )

networkRepository.send(with: request) { result in guard case let .success(response) else { return }

request.value(forHTTPHeaderField: "X-Test-1") == nil // true
request.value(forHTTPHeaderField: "X-Test-2") == nil // true

response.request.value(forHTTPHeaderField: "X-Test-1") == "1" // true
response.request.value(forHTTPHeaderField: "X-Test-2") == "2" // true

}

ApplicationPlugin

Split up AppDelegate into plugins (also available for WKExtensionDelegate):

// Subclass and install to pass lifecycle events to loaded plugins
@UIApplicationMain
class AppDelegate: ApplicationPluggableDelegate {
override func plugins() -> [ApplicationPlugin] {[
    LoggerPlugin(),
    NotificationPlugin()
]}

}

```swift
// Each application plugin has access to the `AppDelegate` lifecycle events
final class LoggerPlugin: ApplicationPlugin {
    private let log = Logger()

    func application(_ application: UIApplication, willFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {
        log.config(for: application)
        return true
    }

    func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey : Any]?) -> Bool {
        log.info("App did finish launching.")
        return true
    }

    func applicationDidReceiveMemoryWarning(_ application: UIApplication) {
        log.warning("App did receive memory warning.")
    }

    func applicationWillTerminate(_ application: UIApplication) {
        log.warning("App will terminate.")
    }
}

Split up SceneDelegate into plugins:

// Subclass and install to pass lifecycle events to loaded plugins
class SceneDelegate: ScenePluggableDelegate {
override func plugins() -> [ScenePlugin] {[
    LoggerPlugin(),
    NotificationPlugin()
]}

}

```swift
// Each application plugin has access to the `SceneDelegate` lifecycle events
final class LoggerPlugin: ScenePlugin {
    private let log = Logger()

    func sceneWillEnterForeground() {
        log.info("Scene will enter foreground.")
    }

    func sceneDidEnterBackground() {
        log.info("Scene did enter background.")
    }
}

Apply

Set properties with closures just after initializing:

let paragraph = NSMutableParagraphStyle().apply {
    $0.alignment = .center
    $0.lineSpacing = 8
}

let label = UILabel().apply { $0.textAlignment = .center $0.textColor = UIColor.black $0.text = "Hello, World!" }

UITabBar.appearance().apply { $0.barStyle = .dark $0.tintColor = .blue }

</details>

<details>
<summary>AppMigration</summary>

> Manages blocks of code that only need to run once on version updates in apps:
```swift
@UIApplicationMain
class AppDelegate: UIResponder, UIApplicationDelegate {

    var window: UIWindow?
    let migration = AppMigration()

    func application(_ application: UIApplication, willFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]? = nil) -> Bool {
        migration
            .performUpdate {
                print("Migrate update occurred.")
            }
            .perform(forVersion: "1.0") {
                print("Migrate to 1.0 occurred.")

            .perform(forVersion: "1.7") {
                print("Migrate to 1.7 occurred.")
            }
            .perform(forVersion: "2.4") {
                print("Migrate to 2.4 occurred.")
            }

        return true
    }

let keychain = SecuredPreferences(
    service: SecuredPreferencesKeychainService()
)

keychain.set("kjn989hi", forKey: .token)

keychain.get(.token) { print($0) // "kjn989hi" }

Utilities

Localization

Strongly-typed localizable keys that's also XLIFF export friendly (read more):

// First define localization keys
extension Localizable {
    static let ok = Localizable(NSLocalizedString("ok.dialog", comment: "OK text for dialogs"))
    static let cancel = Localizable(NSLocalizedString("cancel.dialog", comment: "Cancel text for dialogs"))
    static let next = Localizable(NSLocalizedString("next.dialog", comment: "Next text for dialogs"))
}

// Then use strongly-typed localization keys myLabel1.text = .localized(.ok) myLabel2.text = .localized(.cancel) myLabel3.text = .localized(.next)

</details>

<details>
<summary>Logger</summary>

> Create loggers that conform to `LogService` and add to `LogRepository` (console and `os_log` are included):
```swift
let log = LogRepository(
    services: [
        LogConsoleService(minLevel: .debug),

SCNetworkReachability.isOnline

</details>

<details>
<summary>Synchronized</summary>

> A thread-safe value that handles concurrent reads and writes ([read more](https://basememara.com/creating-thread-safe-generic-values-in-swift/)):
```swift

DispatchQueue.concurrentPerform(iterations: 1_000_000) { index in
    temp.value { $0 += 1 }
}

XCTAssertEqual(temp.value, 1_000_000) // true

Throttle & Debounce

A throttler that will ignore work items until the time limit for the preceding call is over:

let limiter = Throttler(limit: 5)
var value = 0

limiter.execute { value += 1 }

limiter.execute { value += 1 }

limiter.execute { value += 1 }

sleep(5)

limiter.execute { value += 1 }

// value == 2


> A debouncer that will delay work items until time limit for the preceding call is over:
```swift
let limiter = Debouncer(limit: 5)
var value = ""

func sendToServer() {
    limiter.execute {
        // Sends to server after no typing for 5 seconds
        // instead of once per character, so:
        value == "hello" // true
    }
}

value.append("h")
sendToServer() // Waits until 5 seconds

value.append("e")
sendToServer() // Waits until 5 seconds

value.append("l")
sendToServer() // Waits until 5 seconds

value.append("l")
sendToServer() // Waits until 5 seconds

value.append("o")
sendToServer() // Fires after 5 seconds

Infixes

ConditionalAssignment ?=

Assign a value if not nil:

var test: Int? = 123
var value: Int? = nil

test ?= value // test == 123

value = 456 test ?= value // test == 456

</details>

<details>
<summary>NilOrEmptyAssignment ??+</summary>

> Assign a value if not nil or empty:
