TextFieldEffects

I fell in love with the text inputs effects in this article. As an exercise I decided to recreate as many of them as I can using Swift (some of them have a personal touch).

Currently it features the following effects from the article:

  • Kaede
  • Hoshi
  • Jiro
  • Isao
  • Minoru
  • Yoko
  • Madoka
  • Akira
  • Yoshiko

How they look

Installation

  • Looking for Swift 2.3 support? Check out the 1.2.0 tag.
  • Looking for Swift 2.1 support? Check out the 1.1.1 tag.
  • Looking for Swift 1.2 support? Check out the swift-1.2 branch.

Manual

The easiest way to install this framework is to drag and drop the TextFieldEffects/TextFieldEffects folder into your project. This also prevents the frameworks problem in iOS where the IBInspectable and IBDesignable are stripped out.

CocoaPods

Add the following to your Podfile:

use_frameworks!
pod "TextFieldEffects"

Carthage

Add the following to your Cartfile:

github "raulriera/TextFieldEffects"

How to use them

Every effect is properly documented in the source code, this is the best way to both understand and see what they do. There is also an example project included with all the effects and their settings.

Interface Builder

The library is a simple drop-in, as soon as you set your subclass to one of the effects and your module to TextFieldEffects you will be able to see all the IBDesignable settings in the storyboard.

Code

If you like to get your hands dirty, you can use them just like you would normally use any UITextField

let textField = KaedeTextField(frame: textFieldFrame)
textField.placeholderColor = .darkGrayColor()
textField.foregroundColor = .lightGrayColor()

view.addSubView(textField)

Is that simple.
