MKNetworkKit

Take a look at Mugunth Kumar’s MKNetworkKit framework at http://blog.mugunthkumar.com/products/ios-framework-introducing-mknetworkkit

It is an easy to use network framework, probably the best replacement for the abandoned ASIHttpRequest.

The following reasons might make you switch from ASIHttpRequest:

  • Full ARC based
  • block based
  • handles ETag markers
  • supports operation freezes – requests wait in line in case the device is not connected to the internet
  • new features and bug fixes regularly

Installation and usage

    1. Get the source code from GitHub
      git clone https://github.com/MugunthKumar/MKNetworkKit.git
    2. Open up Build Phases for your current target and add the following libraries:CFNetworkSystemConfiguration and Security

 

  1. To have appwide access to MKNetworkKit, find the pch file in your project files and after the last import add:
    #import "MKNetworkKit.h"
  2. In case your are building for IOS, delete NSAlert+MKNetworkKitAdditions.h/m,  otherwise delete UIAlertView+MKNetworkKitAdditions.h/m from the MKNetworkKit/Categories folder

You can also order his IOS 5 Programming book on amazon.
