About SwiftKit

SwiftKit adds functionality to Swift, both extensions to existing types and components, as well as custom useful functionality.

You can read more about the different parts of SwiftKit in separate readmes:

If things that exist in this library are added to Swift, the corresponding functionality in this library will be deprecated and refer to those new features.

Demo App

This project contains a demo app that demonstrates most things from the library. To run the demo app, just open and run the SwiftKit.xcodeproj project.


Swift Package Manager



pod DSSwiftKit

Note that you have to import SwiftKit with import DSSwiftKit if you add it with CocoaPods. The name SwiftKit was (not surprising) already taken.

Why a big "Kit"?

Having a big "kit" is a bad idea, since it may become too generic and hard to overview. For instance, if I want to modify dates, I'm probably not going to dig around in SwiftKit looking for extensions, but rather use the best single-purpose date library.

The GitHub stars confirm this as well. Many years ago, I started putting reusable iOS functionality into a library I call iExtra. I think it's an amazing library and I use it in most of my apps. To this day, it has 12 stars.

However, each project comes with overhead. If I decided to create a new library for each little thing I make, I'd spend a lot of time setting up each new project. There are funny names to come up with, icons and logos to be made, maintenance etc.

SO instead of honoring every little idea with a new library, I'm going to put most here until they are either too large or too good to be a part of this library. When that happens, they'll break out of their little cage and move into a library of their own.
