Typhoon

Powerful dependency injection for Cocoa and CocoaTouch. Lightweight, yet full-featured and super-easy to use.


Pilgrim is a pure Swift successor to Typhoon!!

Typhoon uses the Objective-C runtime to collect metadata and instantiate objects. It powers thousands of Objective-C applications but it is not all that great for modern Swift.

Pilgrim (https://awesomeopensource.com/project/appsquickly/pilgrim) is a pure Swift successor to Typhoon. It is easy to migrate your Typhoon apps to Pilgrim.


Not familiar with Dependency Injection?

Visit the Typhoon website for an introduction. There's also a nice intro over at Big Nerd Ranch, or here's an article, by John Reid. Quite a few books have been written on the topic, though we're not familiar with one that focuses specifically on Objective-C, Swift or Cocoa yet.

Is Typhoon the right DI framework for you?

Check out the feature list.


Usage

let assembly = MyAssembly().activated()
let viewController = assembly.recommendationController() as! RecommendationController

Open Source Sample Applications

Have a Typhoon example app that you'd like to share? Great! Get in touch with us :)

Installing

Build Status codecov CocoaPods Version Pod Platform Carthage compatible Dependency Status Pod License

Typhoon is available through CocoaPods or Carthage, and also builds easily from source.

With CocoaPods . . .

Static Library


# platform *must* be at least 5.0
platform :ios, '5.0'

target :MyAppTarget, :exclusive => true do

pod 'Typhoon'

end

Dynamic Framework

If you're using Swift, you may wish to install dynamic frameworks, which can be done with the Podfile shown below:

# platform *must* be at least 8.0
platform :ios, '8.0'

# flag makes all dependencies build as frameworks
use_frameworks!

# framework dependencies
pod 'Typhoon'

Simply import the Typhoon module in any Swift file that uses the framework:

import Typhoon

With Carthage

github "appsquickly/Typhoon"

From Source

Alternatively, add the source files to your project's target or set up an Xcode workspace.

NB: All versions of Typhoon work with iOS5 and up (and OSX 10.7 and up), iOS8 is only required if you wish to use dynamic frameworks.

Great! Here's the contribution guide.

I'm blown away!

Typhoon is a non-profit, community driven project. We only ask that if you've found it useful to star us on Github or send a tweet mentioning us (@appsquickly). If you've written a Typhoon related blog or tutorial, or published a new Typhoon powered app, we'd certainly be happy to hear about that too.

Typhoon is sponsored and led by AppsQuick.ly with contributions from around the world.
