Spotlight effects look great, and provide a nice way to highlight an a spot within a user interface, but can be a pain to create using an image editor if you’ve got different areas you’d like to highlight.

Here’s a library from Eddy Borja that provides a UIView subclass that allows you to create a spotlight effect on any point within the view.

You simply supply which point you’d like the sptlight effect to appear at, and you can turn off the spotlights, and have them appear at different locations.

Here’s an image from the readme showing the spotligh teffect in action:

You can find MLPSpotlight on Github here.

A nice easy way to create a spotlight effect.
