Open Source iOS SpriteKit Library With UI Creation Helpers And More

I’ve mentioned a few helper libraries for SpriteKit such as SpriteKit-Components providing a component-model framework for Sprite Kit, and PhysicsDebugger that draws an outline around the physics body of different objects for easier debugging.

Here’s another nice library for working with SpriteKit providing a number of useful of SpriteKit helpers called HLSpritekit from Hilogames that is especially useful for those looking to create an interface within their SpriteKit scenes.

Some of the features of HLSpriteKit include:

Loading of scene assets in the background
Easier gesture handling
Organization of content into a grid format
A Toolbar node
A button node
A layout manager for table-style layouts
Modal presentation of nodes

You can find HLSpriteKit on Github here.

A handy library for those working with SpriteKit.
