KituraKit - A Kitura v2 Client Library

Kitura is a lightweight web framework for creating complex web routes for web applications.

KituraKit allows developers to use the Swift 4 Codable protocol in their front and back end applications and use the same code on the front and backend.


Cocoapod Installation

  1. Navigate to the root of your project (where your .xcodeproj directory is)

  2. If you don't already have a podfile, run pod init to create a new podfile in your current directory.

  3. Open the Podfile with your preferred text editer and under the "# Pods for 'your_project_name'>" line add:

pod 'KituraKit'
  1. Install KituraKit by running the command: pod install

  2. As well as installing KituraKit the pod install also creates an Xcode workspace which contains all of your installed pods. So you'll need to open the .xcworkspace (not .xcodeproj) to have access to those pods. This is the default behaviour of Cocoapods.
