What is Macaw?

Macaw is a powerful and easy-to-use vector graphics library written in Swift.

It's simple

Get started with Macaw in several lines of code:

class MyView: MacawView {

	required init?(coder aDecoder: NSCoder) {
		let text = Text(text: "Hello, World!", place: .move(dx: 145, dy: 100))
		super.init(node: text, coder: aDecoder)
	}

}

It has SVG support

Include Scalable Vector Graphics right into your iOS application:

It's powerful

Affine transformations, user events, animation and various effects to build beautiful apps with Macaw:

Motivation

Modern designs contain tons of illustrations and complex animations. Mobile developers have to spend a lot of time on converting designs into native views that will be resizable for different screens. With Macaw you can reduce development time to a minimum and describe all graphics in high level scene elements. Or even render SVG graphics right from your design tool with Macaw events and animation support.
