Maybach is a toolbox written in Swift. This is alpha version, some feature's can be not available yet.


Maybach has been created in come for my personal requirements. Creating many new project gave me point of look to my behaviours. I just have been copying same code, same classes/extension to new projects and then I realise that this is a time to create framework - Maybach!


view from xib

Fast initializing view from xib. Just pass your view class to get, that's all. Remember to have same xib name as class name:

let viewFromXIB = UINib.get(ExampleView.self) // constant viewFromXIB is type of ExampleView.

adjust color

Change color using lighter or darker function, just pass desired percentage or leave default value.

let color = UIColor.blue
let lighterColor = color.lighter(by: 0.20)
let defaultLighterColor = color.lighter() //making color lighter by 40%

hex color

Get color from hex using UIColor constructor. If you forget # sign, it is not a problem, this case is supported.

let hexColor = UIColor(hex: "#000000")
let hexColorWithOutHash = UIColor(hex: "000000")


Easy way to get substring without need to play with String.Index.

let exampleText = "This is example foo text."
let substring = exampleText.substring(from: 0, to: 3)
let substringTwo = exampleText.substring(from: 8, to: 14)

print(substring)      // This
print(substringTwo)   // example

string. Is number?

Elegant check for string.

let numberString = "-1212443.242325"
print(numberString.isNumber) // true
print("0".isNumber) // true

background thread

Human friendly syntax for accessing async background thread.

DispatchQueue.background {

You can also pass delay.

DispatchQueue.background(delay: 0.2) { // delay in seconds, block will be executed after 200 milliseconds.


log is a wrapper around print(). This type of logging force developers to keep one convention of printing and make application more readable.

log(.info, self, #function, #line, "This is Example message.")
log(.error, self, #function, #line)



CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Swift and Objective-C Cocoa projects. Go to project package using terminal and install using command:

gem install cocoapods

Next you will have to specify Maybach in your podfile:

source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git'

target '<Your Target Name>' do
pod 'Maybach', :git => 'git@github.com:martin-przystalka/Maybach.git', :tag => '0.01.1'


You are almost done, now let cocoapods do thier job, run:

pod install


Carthage is intended to be the simplest way to add frameworks to your Cocoa application.

Carthage builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks, but you retain full control over your project structure and setup. Carthage does not automatically modify your project files or your build settings. More about Carthage.

Once you are setup with Carthage, simply just add line below to your Cartfile.

github "martin-przystalka/Maybach"


If you dont want to use any dependency management tool, you can do it manually via git submodule.

More about manual integration.
