SwiftUIX attempts to fill the gaps of SwiftUI, providing an extensive suite of components, extensions and utilities to complement the standard library. This project is by far the most complete port of missing UIKit/AppKit functionality, striving to deliver it in the most Apple-like fashion possible.


The goal of this project is to complement the SwiftUI standard library, offering hundreds of extensions and views that empower you, the developer, to build applications with the ease promised by the revolution that is SwiftUI.



Swift 5.10 is the minimum Swift version required to build SwiftUIX, Swift 5.9 is no longer supported.

  • Deployment targets: iOS 13, macOS 10.15, tvOS 13, watchOS 6 and visionOS 1
  • Xcode 15.4+


The preferred way of installing SwiftUIX is via the Swift Package Manager.

/// Package.swift
/// ...
dependencies: [
    .package(url: "", branch: "master"),
/// ...

Xcode 15 integrates with libSwiftPM to provide support for iOS, watchOS, macOS and tvOS platforms.

  1. In Xcode, open your project and navigate to FileSwift PackagesAdd Package Dependency...
  2. Paste the repository URL ( and click Next.
  3. For Rules, select Branch (with branch set to master).
  4. Click Finish.
  5. Open the Project settings, add SwiftUI.framework to the Linked Frameworks and Libraries, set Status to Optional.


All documentation is available via the repository wiki.

While the project itself is stable and heavily being used in production, its documentation is work-in-progress. Contributions are encouraged and welcomed.

    AppActivityView(activityItems: [...])
        .onCancel { }
        .onComplete { result in


  • View/visible(_:) - Sets a view's visibility.


Use CollectionView within your SwiftUI view, providing it with a data source and a way to build cells.

import SwiftUIX

struct MyCollectionView: View {
    let data: [MyModel] // Your data source

    var body: some View {
        CollectionView(data, id: \.self) { item in
            // Build your cell view

  • ZeroSizeView - A zero-size view for when EmptyView just doesn't work.


  • Keyboard - An object representing the keyboard.
  • View/padding(.keyboard) - Pads this view with the active system height of the keyboard.

        @State var searchText: String = ""
        var body: some View {
