App environment model generation from project build configurations.

In iOS it provides a feature to show app environment and version info (configurable format) on top of all views. It is effectively "watermarking" all the screenshots the testers might take with relevant version info.

Version info


  1. Overview
  2. Setup
  3. Usage
  4. Version Info feature


Tool to automatically generate Environment enum based on Xcode project. It will allow you to easily change this:

    // debug flow
#elseif ALPHA
    // alpha flow
#elseif BETA
    // beta flow
    // release flow


switch Environment.current {
    case .debug:
        //debug flow
    case .alpha, .beta:
        // do something for alpha and beta
    case .release:
        // only release flow

That will add a kind of compile-time safety to your code, whenever it is dependent on app environment. There would be only one file where you need to care about conditional compilation. It also allows you to unit test app, pretending to run in specific environment:

Environment.Override.current = .alpha
// test alpha
Environment.Override.current = nil
// back to default

It will scan your source and generate file looking like:

enum Environment: String {
    case debug = "DEBUG"
    case release = "RELEASE"
    // other cases derived from configuration

    static var current: Environment { ... }

It will also add OTHER_SWIFT_FLAGS build setting for configurations:

  • -DDEBUGfor Debug
  • -DRELEASEfor Release
  • -DALPHAfor Alpha
  • ... and so on


Using Mint 🌱

This is a preferred way, as package was explicitly designed to work with Mint. Assuming you have installed mint already, just run:

mint install GirAppe/AutoEnvironment

If you don't want to link it globally, you can use Mintfile:


Then you can run it:

mint run GirAppe/AutoEnvironment autoenvironment <options>

Swift Package Manager

Add package entry to dependecies in your Package.swift:

dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/GirAppe/AutoEnvironment.git", .upToNextMajor(from: "0.1.6"))


When your target name is same as xcode project filenam:

autoenvironment -p "path to your xcodeproj" -o "output directory/ filename"


autoenvironment -p "path to your xcodeproj" -o "output directory" <options>


  • --help, -h Show available options
  • --version, -v Print tool version
  • --path, -p Path to xcode project
  • --target, -t Target name. If not specified, will use Project name
  • --output, -o Output directory (with optional filename.swift)
  • --no-flags, -f Skip update build flags. If flag present, you need to update them manually
  • --default-config, -d Default configuration (e.x. Release)
  • --default-name, -n Generated Environment enum name, default: Environment
  • --silent, -s If flag present, supresses all console logs and prints

Version Info feature

For iOS, generated enum contains additional feature to show current app version and environment info label on top of all views.

It will look something like:

Version info

Example code to show version info:

if Environment.current != .release {

You can setup version info:

Environment.info.textAlignment = .left
Environment.info.textColor = .black
Environment.info.shadowColor = .blue
Environment.setVersionFormat(.simple, for: .release)

Version info for tvOS is work in progress.
