Swiftpack.co - Package - LiveUI/ApiCore


Slack Jenkins Platforms Swift Package Manager Swift 4 Vapor 3

Base for API's that require user & team management including forgotten passwords, etc

Warning!: This system is only designed to work with PostgreSQL!


Just add following line package to your Package.swift file.

.package(url: "https://github.com/LiveUI/ApiCore.git", .branch("master"))


There is a few ways to configure ApiCore. The easiest is through the Environmental variables.

JWT_SECRET        // Set secret for signing JWT auth tokens. Default is "secret"
SERVER_URL        // Define server's URL, overrides `X-Forwarded-Proto` header

Integrationg ApiCore into a Vapor 3 app

To use ApiCore in an app, your configure.swift file could look something like this:

import Foundation
import Vapor
import DbCore
import MailCore
import ApiCore

public func configure(_ config: inout Config, _ env: inout Vapor.Environment, _ services: inout Services) throws {
    print("Starting Boost")
    // Register routes
    let router = EngineRouter.default()
    try ApiCore.boot(router: router)
    services.register(router, as: Router.self)
    // Database - Load database details from environmental variables
    let db = DbCore.envConfig(defaultDatabase: "boost")
    // Emails - Configure mail client, please see https://github.com/LiveUI/MailCore for more details
    guard let mailGunApi = Environment.get("MAILGUN_API"),  let mailGunDomain = Environment.get("MAILGUN_DOMAIN") else {
        fatalError("Mailgun API key or domain is missing")
    let mail = Mailer.Config.mailgun(key: mailGunApi, domain: mailGunDomain)
    Mailer(config: mail, registerOn: &services)
    // Go!
    try ApiCore.configure(databaseConfig: db, &config, &env, &services)

and main.swift somehow like that:

import ApiCoreApp
import Service
import Vapor

do {
    var config = Config.default()
    var env = try Environment.detect()
    var services = Services.default()
    // Setup ApiCore configure
    try ApiCoreApp.configure(&config, &env, &services)
    let app = try Application(
        config: config,
        environment: env,
        services: services
    try app.run()
} catch {
    print("Top-level failure: \(error)")
