motion-mastr

Gem Version Build Status

A RubyMotion library for iOS 7+ to own NSMutableAttributedString.

MASTR = Mutable Attributed STRing

Demo

Installation

Add this to your Gemfile:

gem 'motion-mastr'

Then run this to install it:

bundle

Requirements

  • iOS 7 or higher

Usage

include MotionMastr

This is a MastrBuilder.

mastr # => MastrBuilder

You'll use this to build your NSMutableAttributeStrings.

mastr.build # => NSMutableAttributeString

Feed it a string.

mastr("hello").build

Feed it styles too.

mastr("Grimace", foreground_color: UIColor.purpleColor).build

Keep adding pieces until you get what you want.

mastr.add("hi").add("there").add("!").build

Styles inside mastr() are default styles.

blue = UIColor.blueColor
mastr("blue", foreground_color: blue).add(" blue ").add(" blue ").build

Override defaults while adding pieces.

red = UIColor.redColor
green = UIColor.greenColor
mastr("red light", foreground_color:red)
  .add("green light", foreground_color:green)
  .add("red light")
  .add("red light")
  .build

Wierd Things

  • Setting text_effect makes the CPU work hard, not sure why yet.
  • Shadow properties aren't working when assigning to a UILabel, not sure why yet.
  • Go easy on obliqueness, don't get hurt.
