CI codecov documentation


Extends the pointfreeco/swift-web package. Adds a more convenient syntax for creating routers. This was inspired / created after exploring their framework in my swift-web-playground package, where I created a simple CRUD server.

It should be noted that pointfreeco will likely build wrappers around their framework that may make this package obsolete in the future, but this can possibly act as a stop gap until then. This package also aims to deliver better syntax for small / not too complicated of routes and may breakdown in more complex scenarios.

Quickstart Guide

This a swift package, so to use in your project then include it in your project's Package.swift file or using Xcode.

let package = Package(
  name: "swift-web-utils",
  platforms: [
  products: [...],
  dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/m-housh/swift-web-utils.git", from: "0.1.0"),
  targets: [...]

Build a router.

Routes are modeled as enum cases. Below would be how to create router with CRUD routes.


import Foundation

enum UserRoute: Equatable {
  case fetchAll
  case fetch(id: User.ID)
  case insert(InsertRequest)
  case update(id: User.ID, updates: UpdateRequest)
  case delete(id: User.ID)
  struct InsertRequest: Codable, Equatable {
    let name: String
    init(name: String) {
      self.name = name
  struct UpdateRequest: Codable, Equatable {
    let name: String?
    init(name: String?) {
      self.name = name

struct User: Codable, Equatable, Identifiable {
  var id: UUID
  var name: String
  init(id: UUID, name: String) {
    self.id = id
    self.name = name

Next create the router that handles incoming request connections and parses them into UserRoutes.


import RouterUtils

let userRouter: Router<UserRoute> = .routes(
    .tuple(pathParam(.uuid), jsonBody(UserRoute.UpdateRequest.self))

Creating the router middleware is beyond the scope of this document, but you can check out some of the pointfreeco projects or my swift-web-playground for a complete server implementation.
