A Swift package wrapping the WriteFreely / Write.as API

What's New



This is a patch release that adds support for fractional seconds when parsing dates in returned JSON.


A Swift package that wraps the WriteFreely API, for use in your Swift projects.

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes. See Deployment for notes on how to add the library to your app.


You'll need Xcode 11.5 / Swift 5.2 installed along with the command line tools to work on this package.

Additionally, documentation is generated by SwiftDoc. After making any changes to the package's public API, you'll need to regenerate the docs; to do so, run the following commands in the terminal from the root directory of the package:

$ swift doc generate Sources --module-name WriteFreely --format html --output ./docs --base-url https://writefreely.github.io/writefreely-swift/


  1. Clone this repository.
  2. There is no step two.

Running the tests

Run the tests from the command line:

$ swift build
$ swift test


Follow the instructions in this Apple Developer document to add the WriteFreely Swift package to your app.

Once you've done that, just import the library into whichever files should consume it:

@import Foundation  // Or UIKit, Cocoa, &cet.
@import WriteFreely

// The rest of the Swift file goes here

Use public methods on the WFClient to send and receive data from the server. The methods leverage completion blocks and the Result type, so you'd call them like so:

guard let instanceURL = URL(string: "https://your.writefreely.host/") else { fatalError() }
let client = WFClient(for: instanceURL)
client.login(username: "username", password: "password", completion: { result in
    switch(result) {
    case .success():
        // Do something with the returned WFUser
    case .failure():
        // Do something with the returned WFError

See the API documentation for more details. Xcode-specific documentation is also available here.
