MessageBox Concept

MessageBox is a simple concept for decoupling entities. Think of it as notifications but the opposite.

  • For example entity A can place a message that entity B can read whenever suitable – not at once like notifications.
  • For example a view controller would like to talk to another view controller, but you don't want to create a strong or weak relationship between them.
  • This concept is highly flexible as it allows you to change which entity should put & get a message, without having to refactor your code & architecture.

Simple Example Usage

let messageBox = MessageBox()

// set
messageBox.setObject("TestObject1", forKey:"TestKey1")

// get
// but don't remove it, keep it stored, so that it can still be retrieved later
let someObject = messageBox.getObject(forKey:"TestKey1", removeIfFound:false)

// get
// and remove it
let someObject = messageBox.getObject(forKey:"TestKey1", removeIfFound:true)

There is no framework/library distibution, I recommend that you simply add the MessageBox.swift to your project. As this will allow you to easily find & read the MessageBox API, and it will also allow MessageBox to compile using your apps build settings.

  • Using Git: git clone https://github.com/MKGitHub/MessageBox.git then add MessageBox.swift to your Xcode project.
  • Manual Way: Add MessageBox.swift to your Xcode project.
  • Using Carthage: In your Cartfile add github "MKGitHub/MessageBox" ~> 1.2 then carthage update --no-build then add MessageBox.swift to your Xcode project.

  • CocoaPods support has been removed! πŸ™ŒπŸ™πŸŽ‰ Never use CocoaPods! πŸ’€
