Since Core Text was added to the iOS SDK a number of libraries out there for creating views with rich text using an HTML style syntax have come around. I’ve held back on mentioning most of them since most are almost exactly the same in both usage and features.
Today I received a submission from Bao Lei of Hulu about a new Objective-C rich text library that takes things to another level.
This library allows you to define and use stylesheets using an HTML syntax, use inline html style tags and more. You can even insert images directly in the text with a very simple syntax.
Here’s an image from the included example app showing some rich text:
You can find the library GSFancyText on Github here with several usage examples.
Full documentation can be found in the Wiki here.
This is the first part of a library called “GrannySmith” which you can read about on the Hulu tech blog here.
Thanks to Bao Lei For The Submission
