A delightful networking framework for iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. […]
To celebrate one of the most exciting WWDC events in recent memory, raywenderlich.com is excited to announce three brand new iOS books: SwiftUI by Tutorials, Combine: Asynchronous Programming with Swift, and Catalyst by Tutorials.
Learn how to build fluid and engaging declarative UI for your apps — using less code — with SwiftUI, how to master native asynchronous programming with Swift using the Combine framework and how to run iOS apps natively on macOS with Catalyst!
Our three new advanced iOS books are currently on sale and, when you get all three, you can save over 40% with our iOS Summer Bundle! It’s only available for a limited time, so be sure to take advantage of it before it’s gone.
An API for human labour. Scale aims to solve the problem of software struggling with complex tasks by using actual human beings. They provide an API that lets you create tasks that will be completed accurately by one of their ‘Scalers’. Current tasks include content moderation, phone surveys, transcription, e-commerce tagging, de-duplication and image annotation. Responses are typically returned within 5 minutes with a JSON payload to a callback URL you specify, and prices start at around $0.10 per request. […]
An advanced web debugging proxy app for Mac. Surge is capable of intercepting and logging the summary of all HTTP, HTTPS, SOCKS5, SOCK5 over TLS traffic. You can monitor all recent network requests, adjust proxy rules, and manipulate Local DNS Mapping. You can also decrypt HTTPS traffic using an MitM certificate. There’s also a clever iOS version that can capture all HTTP/HTTPS/TCP traffic from any app on your device, and redirect to an HTTP/HTTPS/SOCKS5/SOCKS5 TLS proxy server following highly configurable rules. […]
A Mac app that lets you easily serve up mock JSON, XML, or text responses to make development easier. ServeUp removes the reliance on third party services when developing and testing networking code by allowing you to quickly create custom mock REST API responses and serve content over HTTP or HTTPS. You can set up sophisticated pattern matching using any part of the URL, headers, cookies, form variables, and more, and provide custom responses for each match. You can also provide global overrides for delays and status code responses. […]
An online service that transforms your REST endpoints into streaming APIs without having to write any code. Heartbeat runs a worker process that will poll your REST API at the polling frequency you specify in the dashboard and show the changes via an elegant realtime endpoint, and can store updates for up to six hours. It’s free to use while in beta with up to five REST endpoints per user and a minimum polling frequency of 1 minute. […]
An open source tool for sending push notifications to Android and iOS. Pushkin has two modes of operation: Push Notification mode can issue a direct notification for the supplied user and message. Pushkin will find the device ID for the user and send the message. Event mode can send notifications based on an event – something happening to a certain user. Pushkin will decide whether it should send a notification based on the event, construct a localised message, find the device ID for the user and send the notification. It is also easily scalable, because you can run as many instances as you need with each instance capable of pushing 500 messages per second. […]
A free, cross platform API and SDK that gives you access to 15 of the most popular photo sources in one. Kwilt integrates with the most popular social media and cloud storage sources such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google Photos, Amazon CloudDrive, Microsoft OneDrive, and more, so you don’t have to maintain API connectivity with ever changing sources. Kwilt is ideal for any app that needs to give users access to their photos such as photo editing and sharing apps, messaging and communications apps, photo printing apps and loads more. […]
A service that provides you with a new way to document, test, and build web APIs. StopLight automatically maps an API, and then provides tooling and services that let you mock, document, and test your API. The visual editor aims to cut down on design time, and is spec agnostic. It can generate OAI (Swagger) and RAML specification code on demand, ready to be shared or published to any API hosting platform. It also includes an HTTP request maker to send real requests to your API, and the Prism API Proxy to mock, validate, and transform requests for testing. […]
A powerful image analysis API from Google. Cloud Vision uses complex machine learning models to understand the content of any image. It can quickly classify images into thousands of categories (including explicit content detection) and individually detect thousands of different objects such as flowers, animals, transportation and faces. If it finds faces in an image, it can analyse emotional facial attributes to provide sentiment analysis of emotions such as joy, sorrow and anger, and text is automatically detected and extracted with automatic language identification.
