Installation Instructions

Swift Package Manager

Add RestBird as a dependency to your project.

.Package(url: "https://github.com/halcyonmobile/RestBird.git", majorVersion: 0, minorVersion: 3)

You can use RestBird and implement your own session handling or use one of the built-in drivers implemented by RestBird (Alamofire and URLSession).

// Use RestBird without any driver
targets: [
    Target(name: "YourTarget", dependencies: ["RestBird"])

// Use the URLSession Driver
targets: [
    Target(name: "YourTarget", dependencies: [
        .product(name: "RestBird-URLSession", package: "RestBird")

// Use the Alamofire Driver
targets: [
    Target(name: "YourTarget", dependencies: [
        .product(name: "RestBird-Alamofire", package: "RestBird")


# use RestBird without any driver
pod 'RestBird'

# use RestBird with Alamofire driver
pod 'RestBird/Alamofire'

# use RestBird with URLSession driver
pod 'RestBird/URLSession'

You can also try it out by running

pod try RestBird


github "halcyonmobile/RestBird"


Steps for setting up the project for development:

  • Clone the repo
  • Generate Xcode project by executing swift package generate-xcodeproj
  • Open project


First you need to create your NetworkClientConfiguration configuration with your custom or one of the provided session manager drivers. We're going to use the AlamofireSessionManager.

struct MainAPIConfiguration: NetworkClientConfiguration {
    let baseUrl = "https://api.example.com"
    let sessionManager = AlamofireSessionManager()

Now we can pass this configuration to the network client.

let networkClient = NetworkClient(configuration: MainAPIConfiguration())


You can find convenience wrappers for RestBird which are not distributed through the package. This includes a PromiseKit wrapper.
