About iOSBlocks

iOSBlocks is a powerful library for iOS development that allows you to easily implement and work with block-based programming syntax in your Objective-C or Swift projects.

Getting Started

Installation

  1. Open your terminal and navigate to your project directory.
  2. Type the following command to install iOSBlocks via CocoaPods:


pod 'iOSBlocks'

  1. Run the command pod install.
  2. Open your Xcode project using the new .xcworkspace file.

Usage

iOSBlocks can be used in both Objective-C and Swift projects. The library provides various blocks that can be used for generic tasks.

Objective-C Usage

To use iOSBlocks in your Objective-C project, import the necessary headers:


#import "NSBlock+Convenience.h"

Once imported, you can start using the available block methods in your code:


[self doSomethingWithCompletion:^{
NSLog(@"Task completed!");
}];

Swift Usage

In your Swift project, import the following module:


import iOSBlocks

With the module imported, you can directly use the available block methods:


doSomething(withCompletion: {
print("Task completed!")
})

Features

  • Block-based syntax for easier asynchronous programming.
  • Convenience methods for common tasks.
  • Simplifies callbacks and delegates using blocks.
  • Compatibility with Objective-C and Swift projects.
  • Lightweight and easy to integrate into existing projects.

Examples

Example 1: Asynchronous Task

Performing an asynchronous task with a completion block:


[self performAsyncTaskWithCompletion:^{
NSLog(@"Task completed!");
}];

Example 2: Custom Block

Creating and using a custom block:


void (^customBlock)(NSString *name) = ^(NSString *name) {
NSLog(@"Hello, %@", name);
};
customBlock(@"John");

Conclusion

iOSBlocks is a valuable library that simplifies asynchronous programming and enhances the power of blocks, allowing you to write more expressive code in your iOS projects. Whether you are working with Objective-C or Swift, iOSBlocks provides a convenient way to leverage blocks and improve your development experience.
