CI Status

This project was created with the intent of removing common and weird boiler plate code writed in a myriad of iOS applications, such as presenting simple Alerts, instantiating UIViews from Nib, setting Gradients, and so on.. Feel free to open any issues or pull requests.


The examples below uses the default params as implementation, but you can see the full list of params for each method in the methods declarations.


  • Easier way to found if is iPad/iPhone
  • Easier way to found if it is in landscape or portrait orientation


    let isIPad = UIDevice.isPad()
    let isIPhone = UIDevice.isPhone()
    let isPortrait = UIDevice.isPortrait()
    let isLandscape = UIDevice.isLandscape()

Vector Operations:

  • Various vector operations and useful properties are added to any type that conforms to the protocol CSVector2Protocol (such as CGPoint and CGSize).


    struct CustomVector2: CSVector2Protocol {
    var x: CSScalar
    var y: CGScalar

static func constructFromVector(_ vector: CSVector2) -> Vector2 {
return Vector2.init(x: vector.x, y: vector.y)

let vector = CustomVector2(x:10,y:20)
print(vector 2) // Output: CustomVector2(x:20,y:40)
print(vector / 2) // Output: CustomVector2(x:5,y:10)
print(vector / vector) // Output: CustomVector2(x:1,y:1)
vector) // Output: CustomVector2(x:100,y:400)
print(-vector) // Output: CustomVector2(x:-10,y:-20)
//And various others…

### Sequence:
- Some useful methods to verify conditions on the sequence (none, any, all)
- Count where
#### Examples:
let list = [1,2,3,4,5,6]

let isAllPositive = list.none({$0 < 0}) // Output: true
let hasNegative = list.any({$0 < 0}) // Output: false
let allLessThan10 = list.all({$0 < 10}) // Output: true

let evenNumbers = list.count({ $0 % 2 == 0 }) // Output: 3


  • Easier way for instantiating a ViewController from Storyboard;
  • Easier method to present an Alert;

// Instantiate the LoginViewController from the Storyboard with name ‘Login.storyboard’, and with the identifier ‘LoginViewController’
// If in the Storyboard there is no viewController with this identifier, the Initial viewController will be instantiated instead.
let viewController: LoginViewController = LoginViewController.fromStoryboard()

//Instantiate the UINavigationController from the initial viewController of the Storyboard with name ‘Login.storyboard’
let navigationController: UINavigationController = LoginViewController.fromStoryboardWithNavigationController()

// Will present an UIAlertController with the inputed message, no title, no cancel button and with the button "Close".
UIViewController().showAlert(title: nil, message: "You did the thing with success!", actions: [CSUIViewControllerSettings.defaultAlertCloseAction()])

// Same as the the previous example.
UIViewController().showMessage(message:"You did the thing with success!")

// To modify some of the default behaviors, such as the Close and Cancel Actions (from showMessage) and the
// Storyboard naming pattern (used in fromStoryboard()), you can change the static closures of the CSUIViewControllerSettings structure.

### NSObject:
- Easier way to get the class's name of the Type or Instance.
#### Examples:
print(CustomType.className) // Output: "CustomType"
print(CustomType().className) // Output: "CustomType"


  • Easier way to instantiate a UIView from Nib.


    // Instantiate the UIView of the type CustomView from the nib named 'CustomView'
    let view = CustomView.fromNib()

CGRect + CGPoint + CGSize:

  • Easier constructors
  • Easy way of changing properties with declarative style
  • Multiple math operations added to CGPoint and CGSize (CGRect will receive them in the near future)


    let frame =, y:10, width: 10).adding(onX:50, onHeight:100) //Output: CGRect(x:150, y:10, width:10, height:100)
    let frame2 = frame.with(origin: frame.origin / 2) //Output: CGRect(x:75, y:5, width:10, height:100)
    let frame3 = frame.with(size: frame.size * 2) //Output: CGRect(x:150, y:10, width:20, height:200)


  • Easier way to insert gradients


    self.layer.insertGradient(from: .bottom, to: .top, with: [, UIColor.white], distribution: .fibonacci) //Returns the CAGradientLayer after insertion, but the result is discardable.


To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.
