#
VanillaConstraints is a simplified and chainable AutoLayout NSLayoutConstraints for iOS written in Swift.

  • 🌯 A tiny wrapper around NSLayoutConstraints.
  • 🍬 Short syntax for creating layout constraints.
  • ⛓ Chainable way of describing NSLayoutConstraints.
  • ✅ Constraints are active by default.
  • 🧘‍♂️No need to set translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false.
  • 🤙 No external dependencies.

🛠 Installation

CocoaPods

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

pod 'VanillaConstraints'

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install

Carthage

github "jdisho/VanillaConstraints" ~> 1.0

Then, run the following command:

$ carthage update

Manually

If you prefer not to use any of the dependency managers, you can integrate VanillaConstraints into your project manually, by downloading the source code and placing the files on your project directory.

👨🏻‍💻 Usage

tl;dr

It allows you to replace this:

anotherView.addSubview(view)

view.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false

let top = view.topAnchor.constraint(equalTo: anotherView.topAnchor, constant: 16.0)
top.priority = .defaultLow
top.isActive = true

let trailing = view.trailingAnchor.constraint(lessThanOrEqualTo: anotherView.trailingAnchor)
trailing.priority = .defaultHigh
trailing.isActive = true

let bottom = view.bottomAnchor.constraint(equalTo: anotherView.bottomAnchor, constant: 16.0)
bottom.priority = .required
bottom.isActive = true

let leading = view.leadingAnchor.constraint(greaterThanOrEqualTo: anotherView.leadingAnchor, constant: 8.0)

with this 💁‍♂️:

view.add(to: anotherView)
  .top(to: .topAnchor, constant: 16.0, priority: .defaultLow)
  .trailing(to: .trailingAnchor, relation: .equalOrLess, priority: defaultHigh)
  .bottom(to: .bottomAnchor, constant: 16.0)
  .leading(to: .leadingAnchor, relation: .equalOrGreater, constant: 8.0)

⚠️ If the anchor’s view is not specified, it is constrained where it is added.

Edges 🤲

Pin a view to the edges of another view:

anotherView.addSubview(view)

view.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false

NSLayoutConstraint.activate([
    view.topAnchor.constraint(equalTo: anotherView.topAnchor),
    view.leadingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: anotherView.leadingAnchor),
    view.bottomAnchor.constraint(equalTo: anotherView.bottomAnchor),
    view.trailingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: anotherView.trailingAnchor)
])

with VanillaConstraints:

view.add(to: anotherView)
  .pinToEdges()

or with equal margins:

view.add(to: anotherView)
  .pinToEdges(withMargins: 16.0)

or pinned to some other view different from where it is added:

view.add(to: anotherView)
  .pinToEdges(of: someOtherView)

or pinned to safeAreaLayoutGuide egdes:

view.add(to: anotherView)
  .pinToEdges(safeConstrainable: true) // false by default

Center 🖖

Center a view to another view:

anotherView.addSubview(view)

view.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false

NSLayoutConstraint.activate([
    view.centerXAnchor.constraint(equalTo: anotherView.centerXAnchor)
    view.centerYAnchor.constraint(equalTo: anotherView.centerYAnchor)
])

with VanillaConstraints:

view.add(to: anotherView)
  .center()

or centered in some other view different from where it is added:

view.add(to: anotherView)
  .center(in: someOtherView)

Size 👋

Set the size of the view:

anotherView.addSubview(view)

view.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false

NSLayoutConstraint.activate([
    view.widthAnchor.constraint(equalToConstant: 50.0)
    view.heightAnchor.constraint(equalToConstant: 50.0)
])

with VanillaConstraints:

view.add(to: anotherView)
  .size(CGSize(width: 50.0, height: 50))

or with other relations:

view.add(to: anotherView)
  .size(CGSize(width: 50.0, height: 50), relation: .equalOrLess) // .equal by default
