The project has two components:
- A website, CIFilter.io, which allows searching/filtering the CIFilters and viewing their documentation. It also provides examples of inputs and outputs for commonly used filters.
- An iOS app which allows you to apply each CIFilter with arbitrary parameters and save the output images.
The website is publically available and free, and I intend to continue to update it as new filters are added in each new iOS and macOS release. The iOS app is available in this repo as an open source project as well. If you'd like to support this project and others like it, you can download the app from the app store
More information about the project is available in this blog post.
If you find something wrong with the website or app, please report an issue via GitHub.
If you'd like to implement a new feature, please open an issue first so we can discuss it. I'm happy to accept pull requests which improve the quality of this project
The iOS app lives in the
iOS folder of this repo. To build:
cd iOS virtualenv venv source venv/bin/activate pre-commit install make bundle make pods bundle exec pod keys set "SentryAuthToken" "" bundle exec pod keys set "SENTRY_DSN" "" bundle exec pod keys set "MixpanelToken" ""
You'll then need to open the Xcode workspace and set the signing team to your personal team. After that, you should be able to build the app.
The website lives in the
web folder of this repo. To start a local Gatsby server:
cd web npm install make develop
Building for older devices
The CIFilter.io app intends to support only the current version of iOS. However, if you'd like to build the app yourself using the commit compatible with a given iOS version, you can use the following branches:
