I’m currently building an iOS app that requires some image processing functionality — the user would scan a food label, and I would need to parse the nutritional information and return some content back to the user.
In this blog post, I’m going to explore how we can enable image transfers through a REST API — which I built with Python. I’m also going to briefly discuss how I interact with this API with Swift code within the iOS app.
This is going to be part one of a two-part series. In this blog post, I go over my initial implementation of the client and API. In the next post, I’m going to explore another method for sending images through to the API. Let’s get started!
