Customizable Open Source Component Based On The Messages App Compose Bar

Earlier this year I mentioned an open source project that provides a recreation of the Messages app bubble style table view, and compose bar.

Here’s an open source UI control allowing you to create a compose bar similar to the messages app with a number of enhancements called PHFComposeBarView from Philipe Fatio.

The control differs from previously mentioned options in the level of customization that can be applied. You can easily change the coloring, text, the icon used for the utility button, and more all with a very clean syntax.

Here’s an animated image from the readme showing PHFComposeBarView in action:

You can find PHFComposeBarView on Github here.

A nice customizable bar for entering messages.
