Add object in loop from Dictionary to Array

I would like to add object from

dictionary
to
array
.

I'm getting info from JSON, and I would like to add in loop these info with two keys and two values : "name": value1, "imageURL": value2.

I have 10 items in my loop, so I tried this code, but [] is missing :

let urlString = "https://api.unsplash.com/photos/?client_id=71ad401443f49f22556bb6a31c09d62429323491356d2e829b23f8958fd108c4"
let url = URL(string: urlString)!
let urlRequest = URLRequest(url: url)
let config = URLSessionConfiguration.default
let session = URLSession(configuration: config)

var arr = [String]()
let task = session.dataTask(with: urlRequest, completionHandler: { (data, response, error) in
// do stuff with response, data & error here
if let statusesArray = try? JSONSerialization.jsonObject(with: data!, options: .allowFragments) as? [[String: Any]] {
for item in statusesArray! {
let photos = item["urls"] as? [String: Any]
let photo = photos?["small"] as? String
var myDictionary = [
"name": "test",
"imageURL": photo]
for (key, value) in myDictionary {
arr.append("\(key): \(value)")
}
}
print(arr)
}
})


that gives me this :

["imageURL: https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name: test", "imageURL: https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name: test", "imageURL: https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name: test", "imageURL: https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name: test", "imageURL: https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name: test", "imageURL: https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name: test", "imageURL: https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name: test", "imageURL: https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name: test", "imageURL: https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name: test", "imageURL: https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name: test"]


Now, I would like to have this (add [] at each object in loop) :

[["imageURL": "https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name": "test"], ["imageURL": "https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name": "test"], ["imageURL": "https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name": "test"], ["imageURL": "https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name": "test"], ["imageURL": "https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name": "test"], ["imageURL": "https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1479859752262-6f02b79ad6ad?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&q=80&fm=jpg&crop=entropy&cs=tinysrgb&w=400&fit=max&s=a613971b6da0b305154e37bbe01ed833", "name": "test"]]


How can I fix this ?

Answer

Change this part of your code

var myDictionary = [
    "name": "test",
    "imageURL": photo]
for (key, value) in myDictionary {
    arr.append("\(key): \(value)")
}

To this

var myDictionary = [
    "name": "test",
    "imageURL": photo]
arr.append(myDictionary)

You're adding the dictionary to an array so you have an array full of dictionaries. Each dictionary is a full representation of one of your objects.

Edit

declare your array "arr" to hold dictionaries instead of Strings. Just like the error states:

var arr = [[String:String]]()
