5L Create a new local file called data.json You may copy this JSON sample.
5R You can use remote json / firebase realtime database too. Sample: https://testground-a937f-default-rtdb.firebaseio.com/0.json?print=pretty

Major Usage

  1. Import first.
import SwiftNEW
  1. Add States before body or any some View.


var Suggested Options Type
showNew false false, true Bool
align .center .leading, .center, .trailing HorizontalAlignment
color .accentColor All Colors Supported Color
size "normal" "invisible", "mini", "normal" String
labelColor Color(UIColor.systemBackground) or Color(NSColor.windowBackgroundColor) All Colors Supported Color
label "Show Release Note" All Strings String
labelImage "arrow.up.circle.fill" All SF Symbols String
history true true, false Bool
data "data" or "https://.../{}.json" "{LOCAL_JSON_FILE}" or Remote String
showDrop false false, true Bool
@State var showNew: Bool = false
@State var align: HorizontalAlignment = .center
@State var color: Color = .accentColor
@State var size: String = "normal"
#if os(iOS)
@State var labelColor: Color = Color(UIColor.systemBackground)
#elseif os(macOS)
@State var labelColor: Color = Color(NSColor.windowBackgroundColor)
@State var label: String = "Show Release Note"
@State var labelImage: String = "arrow.up.circle.fill"
@State var history: Bool = true
@State var data: String = "data"
@State var showDrop: Bool = false
  1. Then, paste this code inside body or any some View.
SwiftNEW(show: $showNew, align: $align, color: $color, size: $size, labelColor: $labelColor, label: $label, labelImage: $labelImage, history: $history, data: $data, showDrop: $showDrop)

Instead of using seperate states, inline states works too. *Show Bool cannot be inline.

SwiftNEW(show: $showNew, align: .constant(.center), color: .constant(.accentColor), size: .constant("normal"), labelColor: .constant(Color(UIColor.systemBackground)), label: .constant("Show Release Note"), labelImage: .constant("arrow.up.circle.fill"), history: .constant(true), data: .constant("data"), showDrop: .constant(false))


Structure / Model

  • The below code is just for reference only. You don't need to copy the structure or model.
public struct Vmodel: Codable, Hashable {
    var version: String
    var new: [Model]
public struct Model: Codable, Hashable {
    var icon: String
    var title: String
    var subtitle: String
    var body: String


Copy the JSON sample to data.json file (If you don't have it, simply create a new one.)


    "version": "1.2",
    "new": [
        "body": "Available for iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS 13",
        "icon": "hammer.fill",
        "subtitle": "Broken UI",
        "title": "Bug fixes"
        "body": "Direct load via remote storage. Easy!",
        "icon": "square.and.arrow.down.fill",
        "subtitle": "Supported",
        "title": "Firebase Remote"
        "body": "Free and open source! Created by Ming with ❀️‍πŸ”₯",
        "icon": "macpro.gen3.server",
        "subtitle": "Design",
        "title": "Serverless"
        "body": "Pull requests and make it better for everyone!",
        "icon": "arrow.triangle.pull",
        "subtitle": "Together",
        "title": "Contribute"
   "version": "1.1",
    "new": [
        "body": "Available for iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS 13",
        "icon": "hammer.fill",
        "subtitle": "Broken UI",
        "title": "Bug fixes"
        "body": "Direct load via local storage. Super fast!",
        "icon": "square.and.arrow.down.fill",
        "subtitle": "Supported",
        "title": "Local File"
        "body": "Free and open source! Created by Ming with ❀️‍πŸ”₯",
        "icon": "macpro.gen3.server",
        "subtitle": "Design",
        "title": "Serverless"
        "body": "Pull requests and make it better for everyone!",
        "icon": "arrow.triangle.pull",
        "subtitle": "Together",
        "title": "Contribute"

Q1. Why did the sheet not popup/show loading/show blank?
A1. Firstly, be sure the latest version in json is matching your app version. If you are using data.json locally, please check , is missing or any typo that casue the json no longer valid. If you are using remote data (e.g. Firebase), make sure the json structure is the same as the example.
Q2. How can I contribute to the project?
A2. Simply pull a request, and someone will review your code. If everything is okay, your changes will be merged and reflected in the next minor version.
Q3. Can I use it in Educational (includ. Student's Homework, Class's demo) or NGO or Commerical Project?
A3. YES. This project is under license of MIT. Feel free to use it :)
