Swift clone of PFAboutWindow

PFAboutWindow

PFAboutWindow is a Objective-C-Only library which provides a pretty designed About-Window for your application. Is is super easy to show credits, eula and copyright information in a great looking window which is oriented on Xcode6’s About-Window design.

Purpose

Since there was no Swift version of this library I thought I’d convert it by myself. You can find a Swift clone of PFAboutWindow in this repository. Also the .xib file was migrated to use AutoLayout. Everything is supported except for localizing the Buttons. If you need to localize the buttons you have to add it by yourself by creating a Localizable.strings file. Feel free to add it on your own and create a pull request !

Version

1.5.2

Screenshots

Before you download/install the application you can get a little sneak peek by looking at this screenshots:

Installation/Usage

This library can be installed via Cocoapods:

pod 'TRexAboutWindowController'

Then just add it to your project like so:

import TRexAboutWindowController

var aboutWindowController:TRexAboutWindowController

override init() {
        self.aboutWindowController = TRexAboutWindowController(windowNibName: "PFAboutWindow")
        super.init()
}

@IBAction func showAboutWindow(sender:AnyObject) {
        self.aboutWindowController.appURL = NSURL(string:"https://github.com/T-Rex-Editor/")!
        self.aboutWindowController.appName = "TRex-Editor"
        let font:NSFont? = NSFont(name: "HelveticaNeue", size: 11.0)
        let color:NSColor? = NSColor.tertiaryLabelColor()
        let attribs:[String:AnyObject] = [NSForegroundColorAttributeName:color!,
            NSFontAttributeName:font!]

        self.aboutWindowController.appCopyright = NSAttributedString(string: "Copyright (c) 2015 David Ehlen", attributes: attribs)

        self.aboutWindowController.windowShouldHaveShadow = true
        self.aboutWindowController .showWindow(nil)
    }

Then connect the IBAction showAboutWindow with the About menu entry or some button you want.
You can also have a look at the Demo project to get an idea of how to integrate this library into your project.
