SwiftUI TextEdit View

A proof-of-concept text edit component in SwiftUI & CoreText. No UIKit, No AppKit, no UITextView/NSTextView/UITextField involved.

Note Due to SwiftUI limitations (as of May 2021) it's not possible to handle keystrokes just with SwiftUI. To overcome this limitation, the UIKeyboardViewController is responsible for handling keys and forward to SwiftUI codebase.

struct TextEditingView: View {
    @State private var text = "type here...\n"
    @State private var font = UIFont.preferredFont(forTextStyle: .body) as CTFont
    @State private var carretWidth = 2.0 as CGFloat

    var body: some View {
            text: $text,
            font: $font,
            carretWidth: $carretWidth



CoreText + SwiftUI.


For fun and profit.
