SwiftyJSON

By Smita Jain |

SwiftyJSON is another tool that makes working with JSON data in iOS development simple and easy. It gives us an easy-to-use and expressive API for parsing, accessing, and manipulating JSON data. 

We can define JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) as a lightweight data interchange format commonly used for sending and receiving data in web APIs and mobile app development. It is often used to transmit data between a server and a client application. 

Before SwiftyJSON, handling JSON data in Swift required parsing it manually, where we used classes like JSONSerialization, which could make us write so much boilerplate code. 

Why you will like it:

  • It makes working with JSON much more straightforward and eliminates the need for writing complex parsing code.
  • Very readable and less complex to write.
  • It addresses this issue by providing a more user-friendly way to work with JSON data.
