What is Malibu?

Palm trees, coral reefs and breaking waves. Welcome to the surf club Malibu, a networking library built on promises. It’s more than just a wrapper around URLSession, but a powerful framework that helps to chain your requests, validations and request processing.

Using When under the hood, Malibu adds a lot of sugar helpers and moves your code up to the next level:

  • No more “callback hell”.
  • Your requests are described in one place.
  • Response processing could be easily broken down into multiple logical tasks.
  • Data and errors are handled separately.
  • Your networking code is much cleaner, readable and follows DRY principle.

Equip yourself with the necessary gears of Malibu, become a big wave surfer and let the days of shark infested asynchronous networking be a thing of the past. Enjoy the ride!
