ObjCBSON 0.2.1

High-performance BSON serialization and deserialization in Objective-C.


ObjCBSON is available through CocoaPods. It depends on libbson, which is installed automatically, however two of its build dependences are not.

First, install those:

brew install automake libtool

Then, add the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'ObjCBSON'


#import "BSONSerialization.h"

- (void) bsonExample {
    NSError *error = nil;

    // BSON encode dictionary `sampleDict` to `NSData *` instance `bsonEncodedData`
    NSDictionary *sampleDict = @{ @"sampleKey" : @"sampleValue" };
    NSData *bsonEncodedData = [BSONSerialization BSONDataWithDictionary:sampleDict error:&error];
    NSLog(@"bsonEncodedData=%@ error=%@", bsonEncodedData, [error localizedDescription]);

    // ...end perform decording from BSON back to `NSDictionary *`
    NSDictionary *bsonDict = [BSONSerialization dictionaryWithBSONData:bsonEncodedData error:&error];
    NSLog(@"bsonDict=%@, error=%@", bsonDict, [error localizedDescription]);


To develop on the library and run the unit tests, clone the repo, run pod install from the Example directory, and open the xcworkspace.
