Static Accessors for Swift 5.5

I've just created a PR which adds extensions for most Alamofire protocols to enable static access to our convenience types. At its simplest it enables somewhat cleaner usage than the previous form:

Previously

AF.request("https://httpbin.org/post",
            method: .post,
            parameters: Value(),
            encoder: JSONParameterEncoder(),
            interceptor: RetryPolicy())
    .response(responseSerializer: DecodableResponseSerializer<TestResponse>()) { response in
         debugPrint(response)
    }

Now

AF.request("https://httpbin.org/post",
           method: .post,
           parameters: Value(),
           encoder: .json,
           interceptor: .retryPolicy)
    .response(responseSerializer: .decodable(of: TestResponse.self)) { response in
        debugPrint(response)
    }

Feel free to take the new APIs for a spin and let me know what you think. I hope to release it sometime in the next week.

I think it would be nice to have static var as an alternative for cases when the function can be used without passing paremeters:

AF.request("https://httpbin.org/post",
           method: .post,
           parameters: Value(),
           encoder: .json,
           interceptor: .retryPolicy)
    .response(responseSerializer: .decodable(of: TestResponse.self)) { response in
        debugPrint(response)
    }

SwiftUI does that for BorderedListStyle.

Good suggestion, implemented!
