What is SwiftCodableDictionary?

Yet another workaround for SR-7788.


As implemented in the standard library, Dictionary can be en/decoded in/from a keyed container only if the dictionary uses String or Int keys. An unkeyed container is used to encode Dictionary even if Key conforms to Codable, and a keyed container cannot be decoded even if Key can be decoded from a string representation.

CodableDictionary resolves the issue. CodableDictionary can be en/decoded while its Key conforms to CodableDictionaryKey that inherits from Hashable and CodingKey. The point is that Key does not have to conform to Codable.


import Foundation
import CodableDictionary

enum Key: String, CodableDictionaryKey { 
   case key
   // No additional implementation is required,
   // because `CodableDictionaryKey` provides default implementation.

let dictionary: CodableDictionary<Key, String> = [.key: "value"]

let json = String(data: try JSONEncoder().encode(dictionary), encoding: .utf8)!
print(json) // -> {"key":"value"}

let decoded = try JSONDecoder().decode(CodableDictionary<Key, String>.self, from: json.data(using: .utf8)!)
print(dictionary == decoded) // -> true
