This section provides an overview of what alamofire is, and why a developer might want to use it.
It should also mention any large subjects within alamofire, and link out to the related topics. Since the Documentation for alamofire is new, you may need to create initial versions of those related topics.
Installation or Setup
CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects. You can install it with the following command:
CocoaPods 1.1.0+ is required to build Alamofire 4.0.0+.
To integrate Alamofire into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your
Then, run the following command:
Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks.
You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:
To integrate Alamofire into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your
carthage update to build the framework and drag the built
Alamofire.framework into your Xcode project.
If you prefer not to use either of the aforementioned dependency managers, you can integrate Alamofire into your project manually.Embedded Framework

Alamofire.xcodeprojinto the Project Navigator of your application's Xcode project.
It should appear nested underneath your application's blue project icon. Whether it is above or below all the other Xcode groups does not matter.
Alamofire.xcodeprojin the Project Navigator and verify the deployment target matches that of your application target.
Next, select your application project in the Project Navigator (blue project icon) to navigate to the target configuration window and select the application target under the "Targets" heading in the sidebar.
In the tab bar at the top of that window, open the "General" panel.
Click on the

You can verify which one you selected by inspecting the build log for your project. The build target for

And that's it!
Alamofire.frameworkis automagically added as a target dependency, linked framework and embedded framework in a copy files build phase which is all you need to build on the simulator and a device.
