FestivalsAPI client library

A client library that implements the complete FestivalsAPI feature set and makes coding against it super easy.

Figure 1: Architecture Overview Highlighted



The FestivalsAPI client library is tightly coupled with the festivals-server which provides the implementation of the FestivalsAPI and is also coupled with the festivals-identity-server which provides means to authenticate and authorize against the FestivalsAPI. To find out more about the architecture and technical information see the ARCHITECTURE document. The general documentation for the Festivals App is in the festivals-documentation repository. The documentation repository contains architecture information, general deployment documentation, templates and other helpful documents.

The client library is the optimal starting point to implement new FestivalsApp behaviour.


  • Xcode Version 15.2+
  • jazzy 0.14.4+ for building the documentation
  • bartycrouch 4.15.0+ for string localization


There is an ExampleApp for developing and testing.


The unit tests are implemented via the XCTest framework. To run the tests successfully you need to provide a valid address to a testable FestivalsAPI instance in the Info.plist under the FestivalsAPI_URL key. To setup the FestivalsAPI see the festivals-server repository. At the moment the tests are run manually, i want to run the tests automated but i need to decided on the automation/CI which should be used.


The library consists of the FestivalsClient class, the handler classes and their corresponding objects.

  • Objects: Festival, Event, Artist, Location, ImageRef, Link, Place, Tag
  • Handler: FestivalHandler, EventHandler, ArtistHandler, LocationHandler, ImageRefHandler, LinkHandler, PlaceHandler and TagHandler

To use this library, create an FestivalsClient object by calling the init(baseURL:clientAuth:) function. The client object provides you with a handler for each object type provided by the FestivalsAPI, through which you can fetch, create and delete those objects.

// Create the handler
let clientAuth = IdentityAndTrust(certData:<#certData#><##>, CAData:<#caData#>, certPassword: <#Password#>, apiKey:<#apiKey#>)
let client = FestivalsClient(baseURL: <#baseURL#>, clientAuth: <#IdentityAndTrust#>)

// fetch all festivals
client.festivalHandler.all { (festivals, err) in
    guard let festivals = festivals else {
    // use festivals


The Swift Package Manager is a tool for automating the distribution of Swift code and is integrated into the swift compiler. Once you have your Swift package set up, adding FestivalsAPI as a dependency is as easy as adding it to the dependencies value of your Package.swift.
