  1. Add use_frameworks! keyword to your Podfile. The library is written on Swift, so this is a mandatory.

Please download the latest code version and run DCKitSample.xcodeproj to test out all the features it offers.

Documentation

Basically, all of the classes are pretty straightforward and don't worth describing. Most of them you can see in the demo project.

I'll describe a few of them here though.

DCHairlineView

Very useful control, I widely use it in my projects as a separator between views.

DCMandatoryTextField

Base text field for all the mandatory text fields. Highlights the text field if the entered value is false.

By default it considers the empty value as invalid. You can override this behaviour by subclassing this class and overriding isValid method.

DCMandatoryEmailTextField

This field is also checks if the entered value is a valid email address. It uses a regexp taken from here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5428304/email-validation-on-textfield-in-iphone-sdk

Requirements

  • Xcode 6 or above
