⌨️ KeyboardLayoutGuide

Apple's missing KeyboardLayoutGuide

Language: Swift 5 Platform: iOS 9+ SPM compatible Build Status codebeat badge License: MIT GitHub tag

  • ☑ No Subclassing / Protocol inheritance / obscure overrides
  • ☑ No more keyboard notification handling
  • UIKit Friendly
  • ☑ Takes safeArea into account
  • ☑ Only animates if view is fully on screen

How to use it

Simply constrain your views to the KeyboardLayoutGuide's top anchor the way you would do natively:

override func viewDidLoad() {

    // Pin your button to the keyboard
    button.bottomAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.keyboardLayoutGuide.topAnchor).isActive = true

Bonus: if you're using Stevia, this gets even more concise \o/

button.Bottom == view.keyboardLayoutGuide.Top

If you add your view in Interface Builder, don't forget to enable the "Remove at build time" checkbox for the bottom constraint:

Safe Area

By default, KeyboardLayoutGuide will align your item with the bottom safe area. This is a behaviour that can be opt out by using keyboardLayoutGuideNoSafeArea instead of keyboardLayoutGuide.


The Swift Package Manager (SPM) is now the official way to install KeyboardLayoutGuide. The other package managers are now deprecated as of 1.7.0 and won't be supported in future versions.
