TWToolkit makes life easy as an iPhone developer.



View Controllers


Table View Cells


Several categories are included in TWToolkit used throughout TWToolkit.

Adding TWToolkit to your project

  1. Run the following command to add the submodule. Be sure you have been added to the project on GitHub.

    git submodule add Frameworks/TWToolkit
  2. In Finder, navigate to the Frameworks/TWToolkit folder and drag the xcodeproj file into the Frameworks folder in your Xcode project.

  3. In Finder, drag TWToolkit.bundle located in Frameworks/TWToolkit/Resources into the Resources folder in your Xcode project.

  4. Select the TWToolkit Xcode project from the sidebar in Xcode. In the file browser on the right in Xcode, click the checkbox next to libTWToolkit.a. (If you don't see the file browser, hit Command-Shift-E to toggle it on.)

  5. Select your target from the sidebar and open Get Info (Command-I).

  6. Choose the General tab from the top.

  7. Under the Direct Dependencies area, click the plus button, select TWToolkit from the menu, and choose Add Target.

  8. Choose the build tab from the top of the window. Make sure the configuration dropdown at the top is set to All Configurations.

  9. Add Frameworks/TWToolkit to Header Search Path (do not click the Recursive checkbox). It may help to use search for it in the Search in Build Settings field.

  10. Add -all_load -ObjC to Other Linker Flags.


To use TWToolkit, simply add the following line to your source file.

#import <TWToolkit/TWToolkit.h>

You can also import individual files instead of the whole framework (for faster compile times) by doing something like:

#import <TWToolkit/TWLoadingView.h>

Known Bugs

  • TWGradientView's startColor and endColor must be in the same colorspace. The colorspace of the first color is used to draw the gradient. If you did a gradient from white to blue, it would look like a gradient from white to black because the first color, white, is in the gray color space, not the RGB color space. If you did it from blue to white, it would look like blue to black because white in the gray colorspace isn't a valid color in the RGB colorspace (because there are only 2 components in the gray colorspace and 4 in the RGB colorspace). Automatic colorspace conversions are planned for the future.
