RestKit for Watson Developer Cloud Swift SDK
RestKit is a dependency used in the IBM Watson Swift SDK.
It provides the networking layer used by the Swift SDK to communicate between your iOS app and Watson services.
For more information on IBM Watson services, visit the IBM Watson homepage.
- iOS 8.0+
- Xcode 9.0+
- Swift 3.2+ or Swift 4.0+
You can install Cocoapods with RubyGems:
$ sudo gem install cocoapods
If your project does not yet have a Podfile, use the
pod init command in the root directory of your project. To install RestKit using Cocoapods, add the following to your Podfile (substituting
MyApp with the name of your app).
use_frameworks! target 'MyApp' do pod 'RestKit', '~> 1.0' end
Then run the
pod install command, and open the generated
.xcworkspace file. To update to a newer release of RestKit, use
pod update RestKit.
For more information on using Cocoapods, refer to the Cocoapods Guides.
You can install Carthage with Homebrew:
$ brew update $ brew install carthage
If your project does not have a Cartfile yet, use the
touch Cartfile command in the root directory of your project. To install RestKit using Carthage, add the following to your Cartfile.
github "watson-developer-cloud/restkit" ~> 1.0
Then run the following command to build the dependencies and frameworks:
$ carthage update --platform iOS
Follow the remaining Carthage installation instructions here. Make sure to drag-and-drop the built
RestKit.framework into your Xcode project and import it in the source files that require it.
Swift Package Manager
Add the following to your
Package.swift file to identify RestKit as a dependency. The package manager will clone RestKit when you build your project with
dependencies: [ .package(url: "https://github.com/watson-developer-cloud/restkit", from: "1.0.0") ]
We would love any and all help! If you would like to contribute, please read our CONTRIBUTING documentation with information on getting started.
