How to use

Adding Clippy to your view:

NSClippy *clippy = [[NSClippy alloc] initWithAgent:@"clippy"];
[self.view addSubview:clippy];
[clippy show];

And to show an animation:

[clippy showAnimation:@"GetArtsy"];


Either manually copy all the files from the NSClippy directory (excluding the Example) into your project, or you can add it via Cocoapods by putting this line into your podfile:

pod 'NSClippy'


  • Mac support
  • Show random idle animation
  • Add speech bubble pop over
  • Queue for animations
  • Add other characters such as Merlin, Rover, and Links.
