App Configuration via Plist, inspired by original DB5 library and

by Eugene(


1. Create Plist

Add plist file to your project or copy a demo file from the demo project.

2. Define your plist keys

Add keys and values to your plist file

How it works

Initialize theme manager

var themeLoader = DB6ThemeLoader(themeFilename: "DB6Demo")
var theme = DB6Theme.default

Read primitive values

let stringKey = "string"
let stringValue = theme?.string(key: stringKey)

let key="integer"
let value = theme?.integer(key: key)

let key="float"
let value = theme?.float(key: key)

let key="double"
let value = theme?.double(key: key)

let key="boolean"
let value = theme?.bool(key: key)

let key = "colorHex"
let value = theme?.color(key: key)

Read values by reference

The theme manager allows you to read not only values from the plist file, but also use references for another values. A reference starts with @ symbol. If the there is not such key in the dictionary the reference string will be returned.

Style your UI controls.

You can style your UI controls with a dictionary in plist file. See the demo project.

You add multiple styles in the Interface Builder. There is "style" custom attribute.
Or you can do it programmatically.

let style = "loginbutton"
let button = UIButton()

theme.update(button: button, key: style)

Demo App

You can find a demo app, which explain how the library works via some sample code and unit tests.
