Sample App

The iOS Sample App included with this project demonstrates one way to correctly setup and use Cloudy. It also offers the possibility to customize the view within the app.

Getting Started

It only takes a few simple steps to install and setup Cloudy to your project.


The easiest way to install Cloudy is to use CocoaPods. To do so, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'Cloudy'

The other way to install Cloudy, is to drag and drop the Cloudy folder into your Xcode project. When you do so, make sure to check the "Copy items into destination group’s folder" box.


Cloudy is a simple UIView subclass. It can be initialized with Interface Builder, or programatically.

Interface Builder Initialization
1 – Drag a UIView to your UIViewController.
2 – Change the class of the new UIView to Cloudy.
3 – Select the Cloudy and open the Attributes Inspector. Most of the customizable properties can easily be set from the Attributes Inspector. The Sample App demonstrates this capability.

Programmatical Initialization
Here is an example illustrating how to initialize a Cloudy instance programmatically:

 let cloudyView = Cloudy(frame: CGRectMake(0.0, 0.0, 200.0, 200.0))


All of the methods and properties available for Cloudy are documented below.


The color of the clouds. Defaults to white.


The color of the clouds’ shadow. Default to darkGrayColor.


The radius of the clouds’ shadow. Defaults to 1.0.


The opacity of the clouds’ shadow. Defaults to 1.0.


The offset of the clouds’ shadow. Defaults to (0.0, 1.0).


The minimum size of the clouds as a ratio of the view’s height. From 0.0 to 1.0, 0.0 being 0% of the view’s height and 1.0 being 100% of the view’s height. Defaults to 0.2.


A padding that will be filled with the color of cloudsColor. The padding will be at the top, or bottom of the view depending on the property orientation. It is expressed as a value between 0.0 and 1.0, 0.0 meaning no padding, and 1.0 that the view will be filled with the padding. Defaults to 0.2.


The orientation of the clouds. Defaults to Down.
