pod 'EasyNotificationBadge'

Swift Package Manager

You can use The Swift Package Manager to install EasyNotificationBadge by adding the proper description to your Package.swift file:

// swift-tools-version:4.0
import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    name: "YOUR_PROJECT_NAME",
    dependencies: [
        .package(url: "", from: "1.2.4"),

Then run swift build whenever you're ready.

Or simply drag and drop NSBadge.swift to your project.


To add a badge with default settings use this (This also applies to updating an existing badge):

view.badge(text: "5")

To remove the badge:

view.badge(text: nil)

Advanced Usage

var badgeAppearance = BadgeAppearance()
badgeAppearance.backgroundColor = //default is red
badgeAppearance.textColor = UIColor.white // default is white
badgeAppearance.textAlignment = .center //default is center
badgeAppearance.textSize = 15 //default is 12
badgeAppearance.distanceFromCenterX = 15 //default is nil
badgeAppearance.distanceFromCenterY = -10 //default is nil
badgeAppearance.allowShadow = true
badgeAppearance.borderColor = .blue
badgeAppearance.borderWidth = 1
view.badge(text: "Your text", appearance: badgeAppearance)


When calling .badge make sure that the view has already been loaded and has a superview. Setting a badge on a view that hasn't fully loaded can lead to unexpected results.
