RealHTTP is a lightweight yet powerful async/await based client-side HTTP library made in Swift.
The goal of this project is to make an easy to use, effortless http client based upon all the best new Swift features.

What you will get?

This is a simple http call in RealHTTP

let todo = try await HTTPRequest("https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/todos/1")

One line of code, including the automatic decode from JSON to object.

Of course you can fully configure the request with many other parameters, take a look here:

let req = HTTPRequest {
    // Setup default params
    $0.url = URL(string: "https://.../login")!
    $0.method = .post
    $0.timeout = 15

    // Setup some additional settings
    $0.redirectMode = redirect
    $0.maxRetries = 4
    $0.headers = HTTPHeaders([
        .init(name: .userAgent, value: myAgent),
        .init(name: "X-API-Experimental", value: "true")
    // Setup URL query params & body
    $0.addQueryParameter(name: "full", value: "1")
    $0.addQueryParameter(name: "autosignout", value: "30")
    $0.body = .json(["username": username, "pwd": pwd])
let _ = try await req.fetch()

This is fully type-safe too!

What about the stubber?

Integrated stubber is perfect to write your own test suite:

That's a simple stubber which return the original request as response:

let echoStub = HTTPStubRequest().match(urlRegex: "*").stubEcho()
HTTPStubber.shared.add(stub: echoStub)

Of course you can fully configure your stub with rules (regex, URI template and more):

// This is a custom stubber for any post request.
var stub = HTTPStubRequest()
           .stub(for: .post, { response in
                response.responseDelay = 5
                response.headers = HTTPHeaders([
                    .contentType: HTTPContentType.bmp.rawValue,
                    .contentLength: String(fileSize,
                response.body = fileContent
HTTPStubber.shared.add(stub: stub)

That's all!
