Usage

Implement FTCoreText into your project

Manually

  1. Download FTCoreText sources from repository
  2. Add files in FTCoreText folder to your project
  3. Include CoreText.framework in your project

Using CocoaPods

  1. Use FTCoreText pod

Use FTCoreTextView

1. Import FTCoreText

#import FTCoreTextView.h

2. Create an instance of FTCoreTextView

3. Create styles to apply to the output by creating instances of FTCoreTextStyle

//  Draw text closed in <red> tag in red color
//  Example: <red>this will be drawn red</red>
FTCoreTextStyle *redStyle = FTCoreTextStyle *imageStyle = [FTCoreTextStyle styleWithName:@"red"];
redStyle.color = [UIColor redColor];

4. Once styles are defined, apply them to the view:

[ftCoreTextInstance addStyles:@[style1, style2, style3]];

5. Set text with corrent markdown to the FTCoreTextView instance

ftCoreTextInstance.text = @"My text with <red>red</red> word.";

See the included examples project highlighting various features.

Elements

FTCoreText provides some interface element types for rendering content types commonly found on the web and printed media such as lists, images, links and suchlike.

Included:

  • FTCoreTextTagDefault: the default style applied to the text.
  • FTCoreTextTagPage: Divide the text in pages. Markup: <_page/>
  • FTCoreTextTagBullet: define styles for bullets. Markup: <_bullet>content</bullet>.
  • FTCoreTextTagImage: renders images. Markup: <_image>imageNameOnBundle.extension</_image>
  • FTCoreTextTagLink: define style for links. Markup: <_link>link_target|link - name</_link>. See FTCoreTextViewDelegate for responding to touch.

To use the included element types, set the name of an FTCoreTextStyle style instance to one of the string constant types above and use the markup specified. Example: linkTypeFTCoreTextStyleInstance.name = FTCoreTextTagLink, and in the static content: <_link>http://fuerteint.com|Fuerte International</_link>

Notes

  1. Use of the CoreText framework is available for iOS versions 3.2 and above.

  2. Although FTCoreTextView uses a similar markup syntax to HTML, most of the properties defined in the HTML specification are unsupported.
