I’ve mentioned a number of projects for working with NSAttributedString, most recently a library allowing you to shape an attributed string with a UIBezierPath.
Here’s an open source Swift library called Stylize that provides a wrapper for NSAttributedString.
Stylize provides a much easier to read and maintain syntax for creating attributed strings than NSAttributed string.
This example shows the formatting of an attributing string using NSAttributedString:
string.addAttribute(NSforegroundAttributeName, value: UIColor.redColor(), range: NSMakeRange(0, 5))
string.addAttribute(NSUnderlineStyleAttributeName, value: NSUnderlineStyle.StyleSingle.rawValue, range: NSMakeRange(0, string.length))
And the same formatting applied much more cleanly with Stylize:
let foregroundStyle = Stylize.foreground(UIColor.redColor(), range: NSMakeRange(0, 5))
let underlineStyle = Stylize.underline(NSUnderlineStyle.StyleSingle)
let style = Stylize.compose(foregroundStyle, underlineStyle)
let styledString = style(string)
You can find Stylize on Github here.
A nice library for creating attributed strings with a cleaner and more readable syntax.
