This package provides basic Networking.


Create an object that conforms to TargetType to define the HTTP details of your API's endpoints

enum UsersAPI {
    case createUser(id: String)
    case getUsers(name: String)

extension UsersAPI: TargetType {
    var baseURL: URL { URL(string: "http://example.com/")! }
    var headerValues: HTTPHeaders? {
        ["api-subscription-key": "asdkfhaskjdfh",
         "Accept": "application/json"]
    var path: String {
        switch self {
        case .createUser(let id, _):
            return "/\(id)"
        case .getUsers(let name):
            return "/session/nfc/\(name)"
    var method: HTTPMethod {
        switch self {
        case .createUser:
            return .post
        case .getUsers:
            return .get
    var bodyType: HTTPBodyType {
        switch self {
        case .createUser:
            return .json
        case .getUsers:
            return .none
    var body: Encodable? {
        switch self {
        case .createUser(_, let payload):
            return payload
        case .getUsers:
            return nil


You can make requests on the shared Network object at NK or create your own Network. For example if you wanted to request a decoded User object, you could do:

NK.request(UsersAPI.getUser(id: 123)).responseDecoded(of: User.self) { response in
    switch response.result {
    case let .success(data):
        print("success \(data)")
    case let .failure(error):
        print("error: \(error)")

You can request a urlString, URL, URLRequest or a TargetType:

NK.request(URL(string: "http://google"))
NK.request(URLRequest(url: URL(string:"http://google")))

You can also do .response if you just want the data, or .responseString if you want a string


The type of object you get back from a response is Response, which is a wrapper around the Result<SomeModel, NetworkError> and holds everything you might need about the response, such as the originating URLRequest, the URLResponse object and raw data.

public struct Response<Success, Failure: Error> {
    public var request: URLRequest?
    public var response: URLResponse?

    public var data: Data?
    public let result: Result<SuccessType, NetworkError>

extension Response {
    public var statusCode: Int?
    public func localizedStringForStatusCode() -> String? 
    public var allHeaderFields: [AnyHashable: Any]? 

To cancel a request, hold on to the Request object and cancel it whenever.

let request = NK.request(UsersAPI.getUsers)
request.response { response in 
// blabla
