A medallion view for OS X, like the login image view introduced in OS X Lion.

Supports retina displays.

The medallion view in three different sizes

Getting started

  • Get the source;
    • as a git submodule:
      1. git submodule add https://github.com/rastersize/CDMedallionView.git Vendor/CDMedallionView
      2. git submodule update --init --recursive
    • or by download the source as a zip and extracting it in your vendor directory.
  • Add the the source files (CDMedallionView.{h,m}) to your Xcode project.
    • Make sure they are compiled using ARC.
  • Use the class as if it was a normal NSImageView and configure the stuff you need such as border width, color and whether a shine should be added.


CDMedallionView requires ARC.

If you do not use it and want to compile the source files yourself just add -fobjc-arc to the compiler flags of the CDMedallionView.m file. You can also just link against the framework in which case everything should work out of the box.
