:warning: GatheredKit it currently in a pre-release beta. The API is unstable, although the only large planned breaking fix is to introduce structured concurrency for thread safety.
GatheredKit a consistent protocol-oriented API for various data sources offered by macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.
The code originated from Gathered, hence the name and logo. Prior to version 2.0 Gathered used a closed-source version of GatheredKit. Version 2.0 is currently in beta and can accessed via TestFlight.
Documentation is available online. This documentation is compiled against iOS. This doesn't quite cover all symbols in the project so please checkout the project to view documentation for other platforms.

The core library,
GatheredKit, provides the protocols used by the other libraries, along with various convenience types such as
The remaining libraries each provide one or more data sources. This is done to allow the a subset of the data sources to be included, which aids with documentation, discovery, and prevents accidentally include APIs that require extra permissions, such as accessing the IDFA.
Each of these libraries roughly correlates to one of Apple's frameworks.
GatheredKitCamera provides access to cameras, both built-in and external. The
CameraProvider can be used to query for connected cameras. It wraps the
GatheredKitDevice provides various sources relating to the current device.
GatheredKitLocation provides the
Location data source, which is used to access location-based information provided by the GPS and associated sensors. It relies on the Core Location framework.
GatheredKitMotion provides data sources that utilise the
CoreMotion framework, such as an
GatheredKitProcessInfo provides information relating to the computer the process is running on.
GatheredKitScreen provides access to the screens associated with the device.
Below are the sources that are available in the Gathered app but have not yet been added to this open source project.
