Build Status Version Package Managers Contact


  • Xcode 9 or later
  • iOS 10.0 or later


This library provides an InputAssistantView class, that is designed to be set as the inputAccessoryView of a UITextView or UITextField.

It provides three areas that you can customize.

  • Suggestions - A scrollable set of text suggestions.
  • Leading/Trailing actions - tappable buttons on either side of the suggestions.
  • Empty text - Optional text that can be displayed when there are no suggestions.

Use the InputAssistantViewDataSource protocol that allows you to do this customization.

To react to a suggestion being tapped, conform to the InputAssistantViewDelegate protocol.



To install InputAssistant using Carthage, add the following line to your Cartfile:

github "IMcD23/InputAssistant" "master"


To install InputAssistant as a submodule into your git repository, run the following command:

git submodule add -b master Path/To/InputAssistant
git submodule update --init --recursive

Then, add the .xcodeproj in the root of the repository into your Xcode project, and add it as a build dependency.


A Swift static library of this project is also available for the ibuild build system. Learn more about ibuild here
