This client is designed to connect to any Mastodon instance and interact with it.
MastodonClient contains a few convenience methods to create Apps (OAuth Clients) and interact with the API but you should use the URLSession TargetTypes directly for the time being (as those are feature complete), e.g. for getting your Home Timeline:
let request = try MastodonClient.request( for: URL(string: "https://mastodon.social")!, target: Mastodon.Timelines.home(nil, nil), withBearerToken: token ) let (data, _) = try await session.data(for: request) let result = try JSONDecoder().decode([Status].self, from: data)
Given you've got an OAuth Client
let app = App(clientId: "…", clientSecret: "…")
Logging in is as easy as this then:
let client = MastodonClient(baseURL: URL(string: "https://mastodon.tld")!) let app = App( clientId: "a1a2a3a4a5", clientSecret: "s3cr3t" ) let response = try await client.getToken( app, username: "[email protected]", password: "pa4w0rd", scope: ["read", "write", "follow"] )
Provided login was successful and you've retrieved an
AccessToken you're free to use all the other APIs, e.g. to retrieve your home timeline using
let client = MastodonClient(baseURL: URL(string: "https://mastodon.tld")!) .getAuthenticated(token: token) let result = try await client.getHomeTimeline()
