GitHub release Carthage compatible CocoaPods Swift 4.0 platforms

A micro-framework that simplifies the task of turning drawing code or views into UIImage/NSImage instances.



  • Add the following to your Cartfile: github "kaishin/Verbena"
  • Then run carthage update
  • Follow the current instructions in Carthage’s README
    for up to date installation instructions.


  • Add the following to your Podfile: pod 'Verbena'
  • You will also need to make sure you’re opting into using frameworks: use_frameworks!
  • Then run pod install.


import Verbena

// Get a UIImage from drawing block
let image = UIImage.render(CGSize(width: 100, height: 100)) { size in
  // Drawing code goes here. Example:
  // var ovalPath = UIBezierPath(ovalInRect: CGRect(origin: CGPoint(x: 0, y: 0), size: size))
  // UIColor.blackColor().setFill()
  // ovalPath.fill()

// Get a UIImage from a UIView
let image = UIImage.image(from: view)

The same methods can also be used on OS X with NSImage instead.
