The Objective-C HTTP library that Apple should have created, seriously.

The iPhone needs a better way to make HTTP requests, specifically calls to REST web services. Seriously mixes Blocks with NSURLConnection & NSOperationQueue to do just that. It also will automatically parse the JSON response into a dictionary if the response headers are set correctly.


Just drag the files from the "src" directory into your project. You can also try using the included "Seriously.framework" file


NSString *url = @"";

[Seriously get:url handler:^(id body, NSHTTPURLResponse *response, NSError *error) { if (error) { NSLog(@"Error: %@", error); } else { NSLog(@"Look, JSON is parsed into a dictionary!"); NSLog(@"%@", [body objectForKey:@"profile_background_image_url"]); } }];

Simple Queue Example

NSArray *urls = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:

// By default the NSOperation will only do 3 requests at a time for (NSString *url in urls) { NSOperation *o = [Seriously request:url options:nil handler:^(id body, NSHTTPURLResponse *response, NSError *error) {
NSLog(@"got %d (%@)", [urls indexOfObject:url], url); }]; }

Why Are You Using Blocks?

Welcome to the future dude!
