Parsing JSON in Swift

The new programming language “Swift” introduced by Apple last year comes with various really great features and is much easier to use than its predecessor Objective-C.

However, if you ever came across the “pleasure” of parsing a JSON in Swift you will soon find that it gets really complex.

During our search we found a really great Library called “SwiftyJSON” by tangplin on github. We would like to thank him at this point for providing this cool library.

Parsing a JSON in Swift becomes as easy as something like this:

var durationInSeconds = swifty["routes"][0]["legs"][0]["duration"]["value"].int;
var endAdress = swifty["routes"][0]["legs"][0]["end_address"].string;
var encodedRoute = swifty["routes"][0]["overview_polyline"]["points"].string;
