The `AFNetworking-MUJSONResponseSerializer` is a library that provides a custom response serializer for AFNetworking. It allows you to easily deserialize JSON responses with complex mappings into model objects.


1. Install the `AFNetworking-MUJSONResponseSerializer` library using one of the following methods:

  • Using Cocoapods: Add `pod ‘AFNetworking-MUJSONResponseSerializer’` to your Podfile and run `pod install`.
  • Manually: Download the library from the GitHub repository and add the files to your project.

2. Import the library in your source code file:

import AFNetworking_MUJSONResponseSerializer


To use the `AFNetworking-MUJSONResponseSerializer` library, follow these steps:

Step 1: Configure the Response Serializer

Set up the JSON response serializer with custom mappings for your model objects:

AFHTTPSessionManager *manager = [AFHTTPSessionManager manager];
manager.responseSerializer = [MUJSONResponseSerializer serializerWithModelMapping:@{ ... }];

Step 2: Make a Request

Make a network request using the configured `AFHTTPSessionManager`:

[manager GET:@"" parameters:nil progress:nil success:^(NSURLSessionDataTask *task, id responseObject) {
// Handle the deserialized response object
} failure:^(NSURLSessionDataTask *task, NSError *error) {
// Handle the error

Custom Model Mappings

You can define custom mappings to map JSON properties to your model object properties using the following syntax:

@"json_property_name": @"model_property_name",
@"nested_json_property": @{
@"json_subproperty": @"model_subproperty"
// ... More mappings

These mappings allow you to easily convert JSON objects into model objects.

Advanced Usage

The `AFNetworking-MUJSONResponseSerializer` library provides additional advanced features:

Handling Complex JSON

You can handle complex JSON structures and nested objects using custom mapping keys. For example:

@"json_property": @"model_property",
@"nested_json_object": @{
@"json_subproperty": @"model_subproperty",
@"another_nested_object": @{
@"subobject_property": @"model_subobject_property"

Custom Model Deserialization

You can implement custom deserialization logic for specific model properties by creating a custom response class that conforms to the `MUMappedModelObject` protocol. For more details, refer to the library documentation.


The `AFNetworking-MUJSONResponseSerializer` library simplifies the deserialization of complex JSON responses in AFNetworking and provides a convenient way to map JSON properties to model objects. It allows for advanced handling of nested properties and custom deserialization logic.
