SwiftlyExt is a library that extends certain Swift standard types and classes using extension feature in the Swift language.


  • iOS 9.0+ / macOS 10.11+ / tvOS 9.0+ / watchOS 2.0+
  • Xcode 8.0+
  • Swift 3.0+



CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects. You can install it with the following command:

$ gem install cocoapods

CocoaPods 1.1.0+ is required to build Alamofire 4.0.0+.

To integrate Alamofire into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

source ''
platform :ios, '10.0'

target '<Your Target Name>' do
    pod 'SwiftlyExt', '~> 0.0.1'

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install


Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks.

You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:

$ brew update
$ brew install carthage

To integrate SwiftlyExt into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "khoiln/SwiftlyExt" ~> 0.0.1

Run carthage update to build the framework and drag the built SwiftlyExt.framework into your Xcode project.


If you prefer not to use either of the aforementioned dependency managers, you can integrate SwiftlyExt into your project manually.

Embedded Framework

  • Open up Terminal, cd into your top-level project directory, and run the following command "if" your project is not initialized as a git repository:
$ git init
  • Add SwiftlyExt as a git submodule by running the following command:
$ git submodule add
  • Open the new SwiftlyExt folder, and drag the SwiftlyExt.xcodeproj into the Project Navigator of your application’s Xcode project.

    It should appear nested underneath your application’s blue project icon. Whether it is above or below all the other Xcode groups does not matter.

  • Select the SwiftlyExt.xcodeproj in the Project Navigator and verify the deployment target matches that of your application target.
  • Next, select your application project in the Project Navigator (blue project icon) to navigate to the target configuration window and select the application target under the "Targets" heading in the sidebar.
  • In the tab bar at the top of that window, open the "General" panel.
  • Click on the + button under the "Embedded Binaries" section.
  • You will see two different SwiftlyExt.xcodeproj folders each with two different versions of the SwiftlyExt.framework nested inside a Products folder.

    It does not matter which Products folder you choose from, but it does matter whether you choose the top or bottom SwiftlyExt.framework.

  • Select the top SwiftlyExt.framework for iOS and the bottom one for OS X.

    You can verify which one you selected by inspecting the build log for your project. The build target for SwiftlyExt will be listed as either SwiftlyExt iOS, SwiftlyExt macOS, SwiftlyExt tvOS or SwiftlyExt watchOS.

  • And that’s it!

The SwiftlyExt.framework is automagically added as a target dependency, linked framework and embedded framework in a copy files build phase which is all you need to build on the simulator and a device.


What is the purpose of the project?

SwiftlyExt is a collection of useful extensions that we use daily for iOS, and macOS development. It helps us save a ton of time writing the same code over and over again. Hope SwiftyExt will helps you too.
