Defines

A collection of runtime checks written in Swift.

In other words, simply do this:

if Defines.Device.isSimulator {
    //Don't ask permission to send push notifications
}

We all know the Apple Way of Doing Things ™, right? Instead of checking for a device, you check for a capability. For instance, instead of checking if a device is an iPod touch and therefore doesn't have a GPS, you check if CoreLocation is available. Or instead of checking for a device's screen size all the time, we should rely on Auto Layout's size classes and all that.

I get it.

But sometimes you just have to have that flag somewhere. Compact and Regular do not capture how preposterous the iPad Pro 12.9" screen's real estate is. So maybe you want to present a little bit more content there. Or maybe you just don't want to ask permissions for push notifications on the Simulator. We've all been there.

So just import Defines and get on with your life.

Note

Please note that Defines does not provide compile-time safety checks. It is merely a collection of static booleans for runtime checks.

In other words, doing this:

let iOS9 = Defines.Version(versionString: "9.0")
if Defines.OS.isiOS && Defines.OS.version = iOS9 {
    //execute code only available on iOS9
}

... will not silence any compiler warnings.

For that, take a look at Checking API Availability and Conditional Compilation Block.

      • minLength: the lesser between width and height.
      • much more
    • OS: information about the OS running your app.
      • version: describes the version of the OS running your app and makes it easy to compare them.
    • App: your app, mainly reading from Info.plist.
