HTTP in Swift, Part 16: Composite Loaders
So far we’ve built two different loaders that handle authentication, and it’s conceivable we’d want to build more to support others. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could encapsulate all of the “authentication” logic into a single loader?
HTTP in Swift, Part 15: OAuth
The last post covered the basics of an OAuth flow: how we check to see if tokens, how we ask the user to log in, how we refresh the tokens, and so on. In this post we’re going to take that state machine and integrate it into an
HTTP in Swift, Part 14: OAuth Setup
While Basic Access authentication works for “basic” cases, it is far more common these days to see some form of OAuth used instead. There are some interesting advantages that OAuth has over Basic authentication, such as:
HTTP in Swift, Part 13: Basic Authentication
HTTP requests to web apis frequently need to have some sort of credential to go with them. The simplest kind of authentication is Basic Access authentication, and in this post we’ll be adding this feature to our library.
HTTP in Swift, Part 12: Retrying
Most networking libraries have the ability to automatically send a request again if the received response wasn’t quite what the client was looking for. Let’s add that to our library as well.
HTTP in Swift, Part 11: Throttling
I once worked on an app that used a
Timerto periodically ping a server with a status update. In one build of the app, we noticed that the status server started experiencing CPU spikes, eventually culminating in it not being able to handle any more requests.
HTTP in Swift, Part 10: Cancellation
Cancelling an in-progress request is an important feature of any networking library, and it’s something we’ll want to support in this framework as well.
HTTP in Swift, Part 9: Resetting
There are a couple remaining changes we need to make to our loading interface, and one of them is to allow resetting.
HTTP in Swift, Part 8: Request Options
So far we’ve written enough code to describe a chain of
HTTPLoaderinstances that can process an incoming
HTTPRequestand eventually produce an
HTTP in Swift, Part 7: Dynamically Modifying Requests
In this post, we’ll be creating an
HTTPLoadersubclass that will allow us to dynamically modify requests.
