At iOS App Templates, we are building fully coded mobile templates written in Swift to help developers and entrepreneurs create their minimum viable products more quickly. Part of our mission is to provide highly modularized source code so that developers can easily customize and adapt our code to fit their needs. In this article, we are going to talk about the adapter pattern, which we widely use in our Xcode projects.
The Adapter Pattern in Swift
In software engineering, the adapter pattern is a software design pattern (also known as a wrapper, an alternative naming shared with the decorator pattern) that allows the interface of an existing class to be used as a different interface. It is often used to make existing classes work with each other, without modifying their source code. Check out Wikipedia for more information on the technical definition of the adapter pattern.
