There's an interesting iOS Swift tutorial on wiring up your UI code with reactive binding from Colin Eberhardt over at RayWenderlich. The "Bond Tutorial: Bindings in Swift" shows a fluent and expressive way to manipulate how data flows through your app, using the Swift Bond library.
Swift Bond is a binding framework that removes the mundane task of wiring up your UI, giving you more time to think about the real problems you are trying to solve with your application.
However, its awesome creator Srđan Rašić now focuses more on his new and improved framework for reactive and functional reactive programming: ReactiveKit. To get a feel for the the changes, I recreated the demo app from the tutorial, swapping out Bond in favor of ReactiveKit (The diff).
First, clone the project:
% git clone https://github.com/sohooo/BindingWithReactiveKit.git
Then install the pods:
% cd BindingWithReactiveKit/ sohooo@aiur [~/Code/swift/BindingWithReactiveKit (master)] % pod install Analyzing dependencies Downloading dependencies Installing DatePickerCell (1.0.4) Installing ReactiveFoundation (1.0.4) Installing ReactiveKit (1.1.3) Installing ReactiveUIKit (1.0.10) Generating Pods project Integrating client project Sending stats Pod installation complete! There are 3 dependencies from the Podfile and 4 total pods installed. % open BindingWithBond.xcworkspace
Finally, open the project and add your 500px API key in
Info.plist (look for
apiKey: Your key goes here), as described in the tutorial in "Using the 500px API". Create an account if you need, it's free.
