FocusEntity Example 1

The Example looks identical to the above GIF, which uses the FESquare class (Focus Entity Square).

⚠️ iOS 13.2 bug ⚠️

There is a crashing bug when using this library with iOS 13.2 and importing via Swift Package Manager

The Swift bug has been reported here: https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-11564

And there is a temporary solution, which involves setting the "Dead Code Stripping" property in your build's target to "No"

Target > Build Settings > Linking > Dead Code Stripping

Minimum Requirements

  • Swift 5.0
  • iOS 13.0 (RealityKit)
  • Xcode 11

If you're unfamiliar with using RealityKit, I would also recommend reading my articles on Getting Started with RealityKit.


Swift Package Manager

Add the URL of this repository to your Xcode 11+ Project.



See the Example for a full working example as can be seen in the GIF above

  • After installing, import FocusEntity to your .swift file
  • Create an instance of FESquare(), or another FocusEntity class.
  • Set the FocusEntity's viewDelegate to the ARView.
  • Using the ARSessionDelegate, define the session(_:didUpate:) function with a call to focusEntity.updateFocusNode()

If something's not making sense in the Example, send me a tweet or Fork & open a Pull Request on this repository to make something more clear.

I'm hoping to make the animations look a little smoother over time, but any and all contributions are welcome and encouraged.

Please follow the guide for creating GitHub Issues, otherwise I may simply close them.

The original code to create this repository has been adapted from one of Apple's examples from 2018, license also included. I have merely adapted the code to be used and distributed from within a Swift Package, and now further adapted to work with RealityKit.
