This repo is a collection of different 3rd party extensions for the Cocos2d-iPhone Engine.

How to get the source

While gh-pages is main branch you need to execute this, to clone the repo and get to the extensions source:

    git clone
    cd cocos2d-iphone-extensions
    git fetch origin
    git checkout -t origin/master
    git submodule update --init

Files & Folders

  • cocos2d - cocos2d-iphone submodule.
  • Extensions - folders with extensions sources, that can be inlcuded in your project.
  • Tests - sources & resources of Extensions demos.
    • SharedResources - resources shared between all tests (icons, fps images, etc...)
    • SharedSources - sources shared between all tests (appDelegates, pch's, etc...)
  • cocos2d-extensions-ios.xcodeproj - XCode Project containing all extensions and their demos/tests for iOS Platform.
  • cocos2d-extensions-mac.xcodeproj - XCode Project containing all extensions and their demos/tests for Mac OS X Platform.


  • [iOS/Mac] CCMenuAdvanced - CCMenu subclass with additional features: relativeAnchor, more align options, priority property, scrolling with swipe/trackpad/mousewheel
  • [iOS/Mac] CCMenuItemSpriteIndependent - CCMenuItemSprite Subclass, that doesnt add normal/selected/disabled images (sprites) as children. It retains them and delegates rect & convertToNodeSpace: methods to normalImage_. So it's possible to use CCSpriteBatchNode & add position sprites of menuItem anyway you want.
  • [iOS/Mac] CCVideoPlayer - Simple Video Player for Cocos2D apps.
  • [iOS/Mac] CCBigImage - Dynamic Tiled Node for holding Large Images.
  • [iOS/Mac] CCSlider - Little Slider Control to allow the user to set the music/sfx/etc level in the range of 0.0f to 1.0f.
  • [iOS/Mac] CCSendMessages - CCActionInstant subclass, that is more flexible than other CCActions that run functions. Can be used in many cases as blocks replacement.
  • [iOS] CCScrollLayer - CCLayer subclass that lets you pass-in an array of layers and it will then create a smooth scroller. Complete with the "snapping" effect.
  • [iOS/Mac] FilesDownloader - Downloader for a group of files with shared source path.

    Video Overview and more Info can be found on the Wiki
    Detailed README for each extension is available in it's folder (i.e. Extensions/CCSlider/
    On the GitHub it will be automatically shown under files list in the extension folder.

Building & Running Tests

Agregate target "BuildAllTests" will build all extensions tests - just set it as active target and change only active excecutable to choose the test.
Extension Test Template is used only as a template for new extensions test targets. It should not build, cause there's no ExtensionTest class implementation for this target.
SYNTHESIZE_EXTENSION_TEST() macro is used (only once in each extension test) to implement ExtensionTest class, that creates scene with default extension test layer.
