Today i came across a tool for debugging iOS user interfaces that was inspired by the Hierarchy Viewer available for Android Developers. Previously I mentioned the DCIntrospect visual debugging tools which are also great for debugging user interfaces.
What this tool known as the iOS Hierarchy Viewer provides is a viewer displaying the view hierarchy along with the properties and their values for a selected view in an easy to use interface that runs in your browser.
Here’s a screenshot from the readme showing the viewer running in Chrome:
You can download the source code for the viewer, the compiled library and full instructions on the Github page here.
The project was started by Damian Kolakowski and you can read more about the project on his blog here.
A great tool to have in the toolbox for getting those user interfaces right.
