Add another 'Dependency Injection' Library



Tranquillity is a lightweight but powerful dependency injection library for swift.

The name "Tranquillity" laid the foundation in the basic principles of library: clarity, simplicity and security.

It says - use the library and you will be calm for your dependencies.

About Dependendy Injection

Dependency Injections is a software design pattern in which someone delivers dependencies to an object.

Is one form of the broader technique of Inversion Of Control and help the Dependency Inversion Principle

[For more details you can read this link](Documentation/en/about_dependency_injection.md)

Also I recommend you to read [Glossary](Documentation/en/glossary.md) which will help to better understand the terms.

The library supports three popular package managers: Cocoapods, Carthage, SwiftPM.


Add the following lines to your Podfile:

pod 'DITranquillity'

You can use "Xcode/File/Swift Packages/Add Package Dependency..." and write github url:


Also you can edit your Package.swift and the following line into section dependencies:

.package(url: "https://github.com/ivlevAstef/DITranquillity.git", from: "3.8.4")

And don't forget to specify in your section target wrote dependency line:

.product(name: "DITranquillity")

Attention! - SwiftPM unsupport features from the "UI" section.


Add the following lines to your Cartfile:

github "ivlevAstef/DITranquillity"

Carthage support "UI" and "GraphAPI" section no additional actions.


The library uses a declarative style of dependency description, and allows you to separate your application code from dependency description code.

For a quick entry, let's look at an example code of one simplified VIPER screen:

/// Dependency description

let container = DIContainer()



  .injection(cycle: true, \.presenter)


/// Application start point

let router: LoginRouter = container.resolve()
window.rootViewController = router.rootViewController

/// Application Code

import SwiftLazy

class LoginRouter {
    let rootViewController = UINavigationController()
    private let loginPresenterProvider: Provider<LoginPresenter>

    init(loginPresenterProvider: Provider<LoginPresenter>) {
        loginPresenterProvider = loginPresenterProvider

    func start() {
        let presenter = loginPresenterProvider.value
        presenter.loginSuccessCallback = { [weak self] _ in
        // Your can write code without force cast, it's code simple example
        rootViewController.push(presenter.view as! UIViewController)

protocol LoginPresenter: class {
    var loginSuccessCallback: ((_ userId: String) -> Void)?
    func login(name: String, password: String)

protocol LoginView: class {
    func showError(text: String)

class LoginPresenterImpl: LoginPresenter {
    private weak var view: LoginView?
    private let authInteractor: AuthInteractor
    init(view: LoginView, authInteractor: AuthInteractor) {
        self.view = view
        self.authInteractor = authInteractor

    func login(name: String, password: String) {
        if name.isEmpty || password.isEmpty {
            view?.showError(text: "fill input")

        authInteractor.login(name: name, password: password, completion: { [weak self] result in
            switch result {
            case .failure(let error): 
                self?.view?.showError(text: "\(error)")
            case .success(let userId):

class LoginViewController: UIViewController, LoginView {
    var presenter: LoginPresenter!
    func showError(text: String) {
        showAlert(title: "Error", message: text)

    private func tapOnLoginButton() {
        presenter.login(name: nameTextField.text ?? "", password: passwordTextField.text ?? "")

protocol AuthInteractor: class {
    func login(name: String, password: String, completion: (Result<String, Error>) -> Void)

class AuthInteractorImpl: AuthInteractor {
    func login(name: String, password: String, completion: (Result<String, Error>) -> Void) {

As you can see, the dependency description code takes a small part, and the application code doen't know about how dependencies are implemented.
