MarkdownUI

CI contact: @gonzalezreal

MarkdownUI is a Swift package for rendering Markdown in SwiftUI, fully compliant with the CommonMark Spec.

Supported Platforms

You can use MarkdownUI in the following platforms:

  • macOS 11.0+
  • iOS 14.0+
  • tvOS 14.0+

Usage

You can create a Markdown view by providing a Markdown-formatted string.

Markdown("You can try **CommonMark** [here](https://spec.commonmark.org/dingus/).")

Markdown text

If you have already parsed a Markdown-formatted string into a CommonMark document, you can initialize a Markdown view with it.

let document = try! Document(
  markdown: "You can try **CommonMark** [here](https://spec.commonmark.org/dingus/)."
)

var body: some View {
  Markdown(document)
}

Alternatively, you can use an embedded DSL to describe the content of a Markdown view.

Markdown {
  Heading(level: 2) {
    "Markdown lists"
  }
  OrderedList {
    "One"
    "Two"
    "Three"
  }
  BulletList {
    "Start a line with a star"
    "Profit!"
  }
}

Markdown embedded DSL

Relative URLs

When creating a Markdown view, specify a base URL if you want to use relative URLs in your Markdown content.

Markdown(
  #"""
  You can explore all the capabilities of this package in the
  [companion demo project](https://raw.github.com/gonzalezreal/MarkdownUI/main/Examples/MarkdownUIDemo).
  """#,
  baseURL: URL(string: "https://github.com/gonzalezreal/MarkdownUI/raw/main/")
)

Loading asset images

A Markdown view downloads and presents the images it finds in the Markdown-formatted content. You may want to store some of your content's images locally. In that case, you can configure a Markdown view to load images with a given URL scheme from the asset catalog.

Markdown(
  #"""
  The Markdown view loads this image from the network:
  ![](https://picsum.photos/id/223/100/150)

  And looks for this other image in the app's bundle:
  ![](https://raw.github.com/gonzalezreal/MarkdownUI/main/asset:///puppy)
  """#
)
.setImageHandler(.assetImage(), forURLScheme: "asset")

Customizing appearance

A Markdown view renders its content with a default base font, color, and measurements appropriate for the current environment. You can customize some or all of these values by passing a new MarkdownStyle to the markdownStyle(_:) view modifier.

Markdown(
  #"""
  ## Inline code
  If you have inline code blocks, wrap them in backticks: `var example = true`.
  """#
)
.markdownStyle(
  MarkdownStyle(
    font: .system(.body, design: .serif),
    foregroundColor: .indigo,
    measurements: .init(
      codeFontScale: 0.8,
      headingSpacing: 0.3
    )
  )
)

Markdown style

Customizing link handling

By default, a Markdown view opens the links in its content using the appropriate system service. However, you can provide a custom Markdown link handler using the onOpenMarkdownLink modifier.

struct ContentView: View {
  @State private var url: URL? = nil
  @State private var showingAlert = false

  var body: some View {
    Markdown(
      #"""
      **MarkdownUI** is a library for rendering Markdown in *SwiftUI*, fully compliant with the
      [CommonMark Spec](https://spec.commonmark.org/current/).
      """#
    )
    .onOpenMarkdownLink { url in
      self.url = url
      self.showingAlert = true
    }
    .alert(isPresented: $showingAlert) {
      Alert(
        title: Text("Open Link"),
        message: Text(self.url?.absoluteString ?? "nil")
      )
    }
  }
}

Alternatively, if your deployment target is macOS 12.0+ or iOS 15.0+, you can customize Markdown link handling by setting the openURL environment value.

Markdown(
  #"""
  **MarkdownUI** is a library for rendering Markdown in *SwiftUI*, fully compliant with the
  [CommonMark Spec](https://spec.commonmark.org/current/).
  """#
)
.environment(
  \.openURL,
  OpenURLAction { url in
    self.url = url
    self.showingAlert = true
    return .handled
  }
)

Supported Markdown Elements

MarkdownUI uses the CommonMark reference parser and fully complies with the CommonMark Spec.

Below you can see a few examples of how MarkdownUI renders Markdown elements. Additionally, you can explore the full MarkdownUI capabilities in the companion demo project.
