Build Status

ListItemFormatter is an NSFormatter subclass that supports formatting list items to the Unicode CLDR specification.

Usage

Basic Formatting

let formatter = ListItemFormatter()
formatter.string(from: ["Liam", "Jack", "John"]) // "Liam, Jack and John"

Modes & Styles

A style and mode property allow formatting for different types of data (such as units) as well as differnet length variations

let formatter = ListItemFormatter()
formatter.mode = .standard
formatter.string(from: ["Liam", "Jack", "John"]) // "Liam, Jack and John"

formatter.mode = .or
formatter.string(from: ["Liam", "Jack"]) // "Liam or Jack"

formatter.mode = .unit
formatter.style = .narrow
formatter.string(from: ["5ft", "6in"]) // "5ft 6in"

formatter.mode = .unit
formatter.style = .default
formatter.string(from: ["5 feet", "6 inch"]) // "5 feet, 6 inch"

Localisation

The formatter is backed by an export of the Unicode CLDR data (version 35) and just like any other standard NSFormatter you can simply set the locale property to take advantage of over 200 languages and regional formats configurations provided.

let formatter = ListItemFormatter()
formatter.locale = Locale(identifier: "ar_LB")
formatter.string(from: ["ليام", "ليندا", "كوكباد"])
// "ليام، ليندا، وكوكباد"

Attributed Strings

The defaultAttributes and itemAttributes allow for customising the object returned by attributedString(from:) in order to add special text effects such as highlighting of list items

let formatter = ListItemFormatter()
formatter.mode = .or
formatter.defaultAttributes = [.font: UIFont.systemFont(ofSize: 12, weight: .regular)]
formatter.itemAttributes = [.font: UIFont.systemFont(ofSize: 12, weight: .semibold)]
formatter.attributedString(from: ["Swift", "Objective-C"]) // NSAttributedString
