Example

To run the example project, clone the repo, and run one of the example targets

Requirements

SnapKit, yes, we didn’t try to reinvent the wheel, we just want to make your life a bit easier if possible while using it!

Installation

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

pod 'Modular'

For Carthage do:

github 'manGoweb/Modular'

Usage

This is only a sample of what you can achieve with modular, please see the code for all methods available.

class ViewController: UIViewController {

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()

        // Make a view and fill all space with it
        let canvas1 = RandomView()
        canvas1.place.on(andFill: view)

        let view1 = RandomView()
        view1.place.on(canvas1, height: 20, bottom: -10).with.topMargin().and.sideToSide()

        let label1 = RandomLabel()
        label1.text = "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.nUt eu viverra orci. Morbi nulla diam, ornare sit amet bibendum aliquet, lacinia et purus. Ut lacinia bibendum dapibus."
        label1.place.below(view1).with.sideMargins()

        // Make a square view and place it to the left
        let view2 = RandomView()
        view2.place.below(label1).make.square(side: 40).add.leftMargin()

        // Make a circle and place it next to the previous view
        let circle1 = RandomView()
        circle1.place.next(to: view2).make.circle(radius: 30)

        // View will be placed below the one that is lowest
        let view3 = RandomView()
        view3.place.below([view2, circle1], height: 40).with.sideMargins()

        // Two views on sides with one filling space in the middle
        let canvas2 = RandomView()
        canvas2.place.below(view3).sideMargins()

        let leftView1 = RandomView()
        leftView1.place.on(canvas2).add.topMargin().make.rectangle(width: 30, height: 30).with.leftMargin().and.minBottomMargin()

        let rightView1 = RandomView()
        rightView1.place.on(canvas2).add.topMargin().make.rectangle(width: 30, height: 10).with.rightMargin().minBottomMargin()

        let middleView1 = RandomView()
        middleView1.place.between(leftView1, and: rightView1, height: 50).with.minBottomMargin()

        // Making a horizontal stack view
        let views = [
            RandomView().make.square().width(30).view,
            RandomView().make.circle(radius: 10).view,
            RandomView().make.rectangle(width: 20, height: 30).view,
            RandomView().make.circle(radius: 30).view,
            RandomView().make.square(side: 10).view
        ]
        let stackView1 = views.make.horizontalStackView()
        stackView1.place.below(canvas2, height: 30).with.sideMargins()
    }

}

To modify the default values set the following (You will still be able to set custom margings directly where applicable if needed):

public class DefaultValues {

    /// Top margin, only used on spacing towards superview, when chaining multiple views below each other, verticalSpacingMargin will be used instead by default
    public static var topMargin: CGFloat = 20

    /// Left inset, used for side spacing to superview, when chaining multiple views next to each other, horizontalSpacingMargin will be used instead by default
    public static var leftMargin: CGFloat = 20

    /// Leading margin, used for side spacing to superview, when chaining multiple views next to each other, horizontalSpacingMargin will be used instead by default
    public static var leadingInset: CGFloat = 20

    /// Right margin, used for side spacing to superview, when chaining multiple views next to each other, horizontalSpacingMargin will be used instead by default
    public static var rightMargin: CGFloat = -20

    /// Trailing inset, used for side spacing to superview, when chaining multiple views next to each other, horizontalSpacingMargin will be used instead by default
    public static var trailingInset: CGFloat = 20

    /// Bottom margin, only used on spacing towards superview
    public static var bottomMargin: CGFloat = -20

    /// Used to space items horizontaly (placing them next or before each other)
    public static var horizontalSpacingMargin: CGFloat = 20

    /// Used to space items vertically (placing them below or above each other)
    public static var verticalSpacingMargin: CGFloat = 20

}

Debugging views & constraints

Using modular you can also get a high level idea why are your views now showing for example.

// Print constraint info about the stack view
view2.debug.constraints()
// or for full "Apple" debug info on all involved constraints
view2.debug.constraints(debugType: .full)

The default debug version will print out something similar to this:

Modular:
View memory address: 0x7fc57fe074b0
Current constraints:
    - left
    - height
    - bottom
    - right
    - top
    - Internally width relates to height

    "description": "Modular is a framework that should simplify your work with autolayout. As we all know, accessing and using constraints directly as Apple designed it can be extremely painful. That's why SnapKit developed their amazing framework. Now with Modular, you should be able to create your layouts with even less code while maintaining uniformity of your spacings (if needed) throughout your app. Modular is not designed to handle all possible layout options but we are sure it will save you a fair amount of coding if you decide to use it!",
