PrettyKit

PrettyKit is a small set of new widgets and UIKit subclasses that gives you a deeper UIKit customization. You will be able to change their background color, add gradients, shadows, etc.

At the time of writing these docs, there are subclasses for UITableViewCell, UINavigationBar and UITabBar, and several custom cells.

Here are some examples of what you can achieve:

Documentation

Full documentation can be found here: http://vicpenap.github.com/PrettyKit

Using it

Using this framework is really easy.

First:

  • Copy all files under the PrettyKit folder.
  • #import "PrettyKit.h" where you need it.

Then, just change all your references to UI classes to Pretty classes, and you're done.

You'll find further information on how to use the classes in the docs.

Customization

All Pretty objects' properties have default values, but you can freely change them.

Pretty Cell

Grouped tables

You can change the cell's appearance as follows:

  • cell's shadow (border will be disabled when the shadow is enabled).
  • cell's background color or gradient.
  • cell's border color (border will be disabled when the shadow is enabled).
  • cell's corner radius.
  • cell's separator.
  • cell's selection gradient.
Plain tables

You can change the cell's appearance as follows:

  • cell's background color or gradient.
  • cell's separator.
  • cell's selection gradient.

Pretty Navigation Bar

You can change the navigation bar appearance as follows:

  • shadow opacity
  • gradient start color
  • gradient end color
  • top line volor
  • bottom line color

Pretty Tab Bar

You can change the tab bar appearance as follows:

  • gradient start color
  • gradient end color
  • separator line volor

Performance

Everything is drawn using Core Graphics, so you can expect a nice performance. Particular attention has been paid to non opaque areas, trying to reduce them as much as possible.

Current status

This framework is currently under active development. It is compatible with iOS 4.0 or higher.
