A small library to create AppStore previews and screenshots.

(Optionally) use AppStorePreview to create App Store previews (SwiftUI views) and screenshots to create and save screenshots of the view for provided devices (device sizes) and locales.

SwiftUI previews are not available in test targets, so if you want to have SwiftUI previews it makes sense to create a separate target for views that would be the sources for the App Store screenshots/previews, and import that target into test target that actually produce screenshots (png-files).

screenshot and screenshots


The following is optional, take it as an use example. For clarity and simplicity, we would consider ourselves living in the SwiftUI world.

Create new app target named AppStorePreviews. Compose the views you'd like screenshots of. You can use AppStorePreview from AppStorePreviewing library to assist you.


Create new test target named AppStorePreviewsTests. Add tests...

let locales: [Locale] = ...
let devices: [Device] = ...

let appStorePreview: (Device) -> AppStorePreview = { device in
    // ...

try screenshots(appStorePreview, with: locales, on: devices)

Create (or tweak) scheme AppStorePreviews ...

In fastlane's Snapfile set scheme and output directory:

scheme "AppStorePreviews"
output_directory "./AppStorePreviewsTests/AppStoreScreenshots"

Run ... Output:

πŸ›  Xcode

⚠️ Warning: By default, Xcode will try to add the Screenshotting package to your project's main application/framework target. Please ensure that Screenshotting is added to the test target instead, as documented below.

  1. From the menu select File/Add Packages…
  2. Enter package repository URL: https://github.com/igor1309/swift-screenshotting.git into the search field
  3. Confirm the version and let Xcode resolve the package
  4. On the final dialog, make sure Screenshotting's Add to Target column is set to a test target that will contain screenshot tests

πŸ“¦ Swift Package Manager

If you want to use Screenshotting in any other project that uses SwiftPM, add the package as a dependency in Package.swift:

dependencies: [
        url: "https://github.com/igor1309/swift-screenshotting.git",
        from: .init(0, 0, 4)

Next, add Screenshotting as a dependency of your test target:

targets: [
    .target(name: "MyApp"),
        name: "MyAppTests",
        dependencies: [
            .product(name: "Screenshotting", package: "swift-screenshotting")

Why not SnapshotTesting

Been a huge fan of Point-Free and SnapshotTesting in particular (also an inspiration), I can’t use it here

  • Opinionated about folder (not a dealbreaker) and file naming
  • Flat structure - can’t use localization subfolders


  • Device chrome for iPad and other iPhones
  • iPhone 14 island
