The QuoteKit is a Swift framework to use the free APIs provided by Quotable created by Luke Peavey. It uses the latest async/await syntax for easy access and contains all the APIs like fetching a random quote, all quotes, authors, tags, and searching quotes and authors.

Requirements

As it uses the async/await feature of Swift 5.5, the platforms supported are OS 13.0+, macOS 11.0+, watchOS 6.0+, and tvOS 13.0+.

Installation

The best way to add QuoteKit to your project is via the Swift Package Manager.

dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/rudrankriyam/QuoteKit.git")
]

Usage

The struct QuoteKit contains static methods to fetch the relevant data. For example, to get the list of quotes -

do {
    var quotes: Quotes?
    quotes = try await QuoteKit.quotes()
} catch {
    print(error)
}

The examples given below are similar to Quotable's README.

Random Quote

Returns a single random Quote object from the /random API.

var randomQuote: Quote?
randomQuote = try await QuoteKit.randomQuote()

You can customize the request by adding query parameters like the minimum and maximum length of the quote or its tag. You can also get a random quote from a specific author(s).

Few examples:

Random Quote with tags "technology" AND "famous-quotes" -

try await QuoteKit.randomQuote(tags: [.technology, .famousQuotes], type: .all)

Random Quote with tags "History" OR "Civil Rights" -

try await QuoteKit.randomQuote(tags: [.history, .civilRights], type: .either)

Random Quote with a maximum length of 50 characters -

try await QuoteKit.randomQuote(maxLength: 150)

Random Quote with a length between 100 and 140 characters -

try await QuoteKit.randomQuote(minLength: 100, maxLength: 140)

Random Quote by the author "Aesop" and "Stephen Hawking" -

try await QuoteKit.randomQuote(authors: ["aesop", "stephen-hawking"])

List Quotes

Returns the Quotes object based on the given queries from the /quotes API. By default, the list contains 20 Quote on one page.

var quotes: Quotes?
quotes = try await QuoteKit.quotes()

Few examples:

Get all quotes with a maximum length of 50 characters -

try await QuoteKit.quotes(maxLength: 150)

Get all quotes with a length between 100 and 140 characters -

try await QuoteKit.quotes(minLength: 100, maxLength: 140)

Get the first page of quotes, with 20 results per page -

try await QuoteKit.quotes(page: 1)

Get the second page of quotes, with 20 results per page, with a limit of 10 quotes -

try await QuoteKit.quotes(limit: 10, page: 2)

Get all quotes with the tags love OR happiness -

try await QuoteKit.quotes(tags: [.love, .happiness], type: .either)

Get all quotes with the tags technology AND famous-quotes -

try await QuoteKit.quotes(tags: [.technology, .famousQuotes], type: .all)

Get all quotes by author, using the author's slug -

try await QuoteKit.quotes(authors: ["albert-einstein"])

Get all quotes sorted by the author -

try await QuoteKit.quotes(sortBy: .author)

Get all quotes sorted by content, in descending order -

try await QuoteKit.quotes(sortBy: .content, order: .descending)

Quote By ID

If there is one, return a single Quote object for the given id from the /quotes/:id API.

var quote: Quote?
quote = try await QuoteKit.quote(id: "2xpHvSOQMD")

List Authors

Returns the Authors object matching the given queries from the /authors API. By default, the list contains 20 Author on one page. You can filter multiple authors by providing their slugs in the query parameter.

var authors: Authors?
authors = try await QuoteKit.authors()

Few examples:

Get the first page of authors, with 20 results per page -

try await QuoteKit.authors(page: 1)

Get the second page of authors, with 20 results per page, with a limit of 10 authors -

try await QuoteKit.authors(limit: 10, page: 2)

Get all authors, sorted alphabetically by name -

try await QuoteKit.authors(sortBy: .name)

Get all authors sorted by number of quotes in descending order -

try await QuoteKit.authors(sortBy: .quoteCount, order: .descending)

Get a single author by slug -

try await QuoteKit.authors(slugs: ["albert-einstein"])

Get multiple authors by slug -

try await QuoteKit.authors(slugs: ["albert-einstein", "abraham-lincoln"])

Author By ID

If there is one, return a single Author object for the given id from the /authors/:id API.

var author: Author?
author = try await QuoteKit.author(id: "XYxYtSeixS-o")

Author Profile Image URL

Returns the image URL for the given author slug. You can specify the image size as well. The default image size is 700x700.

var authorImageURL: URL?
authorImageURL = QuoteKit.authorProfile(size: 1000, slug: "aesop")

List Tags

Get all tags, sorted by number of quotes in descending order -

Get the second page of searched authors, with 20 results per page, with a limit of 10 authors -

try await QuoteKit.searchAuthors(for: "kalam", limit: 10, page: 2)

Data Models

There are many different data models for using this framework.

  • Quote

The object represents a single quote. You can get the content of the quote using the content variable. The tags is an array of the relevant tag associated with the quote. To get the number of characters in the quote, use length.

struct Quote: Decodable, Identifiable {
    var id: String
    var tags: [String]
    var content: String
    var author: String
    var authorSlug: String
    var length: Int
    var dateAdded: String
    var dateModified: String
    
    enum CodingKeys: String, CodingKey {
        case id = "_id"
        case tags, content, author, authorSlug, length, dateAdded, dateModified
    }
}
  • Author

The object represents a single author. You can get the link to their Wikipedia page or their official website using link. bio contains a brief, one paragraph about the author. Use description instead to get a shorter description of the person's occupation or what they're known for. quotes contains an array of the author's quote.

struct Author: Decodable, Identifiable {
    var id: String
    var link: String
    var bio: String
    var description: String
    var name: String
    var quoteCount: Int
    var slug: String
    var dateAdded: String
    var dateModified: String
    var quotes: [Quote]?
    
    enum CodingKeys: String, CodingKey {
        case link, bio, description
        case id = "_id"
        case name, quoteCount, slug
        case dateAdded, dateModified
        case quotes
    }
}

extension Author: Equatable {
    static func ==(lhs: Author, rhs: Author) -> Bool {
        lhs.id == rhs.id
    }
}
