Feb 15, 2012, 07:27 AM
hi ,i am using RESTkit webservices,and i have to create newsfeed. so i have to get json parsing and i am stuck somewhere.


-(void)request:(RKRequest*)request didLoadResponse:(RKResponse*)response {

else if ([request isGET]) {

NSLog(@"GET response: %@", [response bodyAsString]);

if ([request.resourcePath isEqualToString:[TeamieRestAPI resourceURL:TeamieUserNewsfeedRequest]]) { // if it's a request to get User Newsfeed

if ([response isOK]) {

NSDictionary * newsfeed = [[response bodyAsString] objectFromJSONString];

[self.delegate requestSuccessful:TeamieUserNewsfeedRequest withResponse:newsfeed];


else {

[self.delegate requestFailed:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"%i", response.statusCode] forRequest:TeamieUserNewsfeedRequest];




NSString * newsfeedURL = [TeamieRestAPI resourceURL:TeamieUserNewsfeedRequest];

[[RKClient sharedClient] get:newsfeedURL queryParams:params delegate:self];

#ifdef DEBUG

NSLog(@"Newsfeed request sent...");


return YES;


in newsfeedviewcontroller.m

// the function that is called once the Newsfeed is loaded

// Also contains code to parse throught the JSON structure

-(void)userNewsfeedDidLoad:(NSDictionary *)response {

NSDictionary * newsfeed = [response valueForKey:@"thoughts"];

// print the 'title' and 'method' of all filters

for (id item in [newsfeed valueForKey:@"filters"]) {

NSLog(@"Filter Title: %@ with method: %@", [item valueForKey:@"title"], [item valueForKey:@"method"]);


// print 'html' of each thought along with 'timestamp' and 'real_name' of the user who posted the thought

for (id thoughtid in [newsfeed valueForKey:@"thought"]) {

NSDictionary * thought = [[newsfeed valueForKey:@"thought"] valueForKey:thoughtid];

NSLog(@"Message '%@' %@ by %@", [[thought valueForKey:@"message"] valueForKey:@"html"], [[[thought valueForKey:@"timestamp"] valueForKey:@"time"] valueForKey:@"text"], [[thought valueForKey:@"user"] valueForKey:@"real_name"]);

One step at a time. Are you able to parse your values out of the JSON and print them to the log? Are you getting the correct raw response from the sever?
