Try out (Cloning repo)

JSSAlertView is available through CocoaPods. To install
it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'JSSAlertView'


Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks. A minimum version of 0.17 is required.

To install, simply add the following lines to your Cartfile:

github "JSSAlertView/JSSAlertView"


Make sure you imported JSSAlertView with following

import JSSAlertView

The most minimal alert just has a title.

  self, // the parent view controller of the alert
  title: "I'm an alert" // the alert's title

The delayed Alert

  self, // the parent view controller of the alert
  title: "I'm an alert", // the alert's title
  delay: 3 // time in secs

You’ll always want to first pass a reference to the view controller that you wish to add the overlay and alert subviews to.

Besides the default show() method you can call any of four alert themes: info(), success(), warning(), and danger().

  title: "Great success", 
  text: "This is the built-in .success style"

You can customize button text, add a custom icon and customize the alert color.

var customIcon:UIImage! // your custom icon UIImage
var customColor:UIColor! // base color for the alert
  title: "Another alert", 
  text: "An alert with more customizations.", 
  buttonText: "Right on", 
  color: customColor, 
  iconImage: customIcon)

You can also decide not to show any buttons with argument noButtons: true by doing so, JSSAlerView will close on tap and sends close callback.

    title: "Custom color",
    text: "All of the cool kids have purple alerts these days",
    buttonText: "Whoa",
    color: UIColorFromHex(0x9b59b6, alpha: 1))

You can also provide a callback function to run after the alert is dismissed, specify custom fonts and change the alert’s text color from dark to light.

func myCallback() { 
  // this'll run after the alert is dismissed
var alertview = JSSAlertView().show(self, 
  title: "Yet another alert", 
  text: "Callbacks, fonts and text colors"
alertview.addAction(myCallback) // Method to run after dismissal
alertview.setTitleFont("ClearSans-Bold") // Title font
alertview.setTextFont("ClearSans") // Alert body text font
alertview.setButtonFont("ClearSans-Light") // Button text font
alertview.setTextTheme(.Light) // can be .Light or .Dark

Finally, two-button alerts with a cancel button on the left are possible by passing in some cancelButtonText. The button on the left side of the alert will reflect that text and simply dismiss the alert when tapped, with an optional cancel callback. The right-hand button will also dismiss the alert as usual, with the appropriate close callback if present.

func myCancelCallback() {
  // this'll run if cancel is pressed after the alert is dismissed
var alertview = JSSAlertView().show(
  title: "I'm an alert",
  text: "An alert with two buttons. Dismiss by tapping the left, and do something else by tapping the right.", 
  buttonText: "OK",
  cancelButtonText: "Cancel" // This tells JSSAlertView to create a two-button alert
