Swift, Foundation and CoreGraphics Extensions

Array extension

Safely access to an element:

var array = [1, 2, 3]
print(array[safe: 0]) // Optional(1)
print(array[safe: 10]) // nil

Find all the index of an object:

var array = [1, 2, 3, 1]
print(array.indexes(of: 1)) // [0,3]

Get index of first / last occurrence of an object:

var array = [1, 2, 3, 1]
print(array.firstIndex(of: 1)) // Optional(0)
print(array.lastIndex(of: 1)) // Optional(3)

Remove an object:

var array = [1, 2, 3]
myArray.remove(object: 2)
print(myArray) // [1, 3]
myArray.remove(objects: [1, 3])
print(myArray) // []

Remove all the duplicates:

var array = [0, 0, 1, 1, 2]
array.removeDuplicates()
print(array) // [0,1,2]

let array = [0, 0, 1, 1, 2]
let newArray.removedDuplicates()
print(newArray) // [0,1,2]

Remove all instances of an item:

var array = [0, 0, 1, 1, 2]
array.removeAll(0)
print(array) // [1,1,2]

let array = [0, 0, 1, 1, 2]
let newArray = array.removedAll(0)
print(newArray) // [1,1,2]

Check if an array is a subset of another array:

var array = [1, 2, 3]
print(array.contains([1, 2])) // true
print(array.contains([5])) // false

Determine if an array contains an object:

var array = [1, 2, 3]
print(array.contains(1)) // true
print(array.contains(11)) // false

Get intersection and union of two arrays:

var myArray = [1, 2, 3]
print(array.intersection(for: [1, 5, 3])) // [1, 3]
print(array.union(values: [5, 6])) // [1, 2, 3, 5, 6]

Get difference between two arrays:

var array = [1, 2, 3]
print(array.difference(with: [1])) // [2, 3]

Split into chunk of a specific size:

var array = [1, 2, 3, 4]
print(array.split(intoChunksOf: 2)) // [[1, 2], [3, 4]]

Bundle extension

Get bundle information:

Bundle.main.appName
Bundle(url: url)?.appName

Bundle.main.displayName
Bundle(url: url)?.displayName

Bundle.main.appVersion
Bundle(url: url)?.appVersion

Bundle(url: url)?.appBuild

Bundle.main.bundleId
Bundle(url: url)?.bundleId

Bundle.main.schemes
Bundle(url: url)?.schemes

Bundle.main.mainScheme
Bundle(url: url)?.mainScheme

Bundle.main.isInTestFlight
Bundle(url: url)?.isInTestFlight

CGFloat extension

Create a CGFloat from a Float or an Integer:

let imageViewTop = 15.f

CGPoint extension

Add two CGPoint:

var point1 = CGPoint(x: 10, y: 10)
let point2 = CGPoint(x: 10, y: 10)
print(point1 + point2) // CGPoint(x: 20, y: 20)

point1 += point2
print(point1) // CGPoint(x: 20, y: 20)

Substract two CGPoint:

var point1 = CGPoint(x: 10, y: 10)
let point2 = CGPoint(x: 10, y: 10)
print(point1 - point2) // CGPoint(x: 0, y: 0)

point1 -= point2
print(point1) // CGPoint(x: 0, y: 0)

Multiply a CGPoint with a scalar:

var point1 = CGPoint(x: 10, y: 10)
print(point1 * 2) // CGPoint(x: 20, y: 20)

point1 *= 2
print(point1) // CGPoint(x: 20, y: 20)

CGRect extension

Get the origin's x and y coordinates:

aRect.x // instead of aRect.origin.x
aRect.y // instead of aRect.origin.y

Change one property of a CGRect:

let rect = CGRect(x: 10, y: 20, width: 30, height: 40) 
let widerRect = rect.with(width: 100) // x: 10, y: 20, width: 100, height: 40
let tallerRect = rect.with(height: 100) // x: 10, y: 20, width: 30, height: 100
let rectAtAnotherPosition = rect.with(x: 100).with(y: 200) // x: 100, y: 200, width: 30, height: 40
let rectWithAnotherSize = rect.with(size: CGSize(width: 200, height: 200)) // x: 10, y: 20, width: 200, height: 200
let rectAtYetAnotherPosition = rect.with(origin: CGPoint(x: 100, y: 100)) // x: 100, y: 100, width: 30, height: 40

CGSize extension

Add two CGSize:

var size1 = CGSize(width: 10, height: 10)
let size2 = CGSize(width: 10, height: 10)
print(size1 + size2) // CGSize(width: 20, height: 20)

size1 += size2
print(size1) // CGSize(width: 20, height: 20)

Substract two CGSize:

var size1 = CGSize(width: 10, height: 10)
let size2 = CGSize(width: 10, height: 10)
print(size1 - size2) // CGSize(width: 0, height: 0)

size1 -= size2
print(size1) // CGSize(width: 0, height: 0)

Multiply a CGSize with a scalar:

var size1 = CGSize(x: 10, y: 10)
print(size1 * 2) // CGSize(width: 20, height: 20)

size1 *= 2
print(size1) // CGSize(width: 20, height: 20)

Color extension

Create colors with HEX values:

let myUIColor = UIColor(hex: "233C64") // Equals 35,60,100,1
let myNSColor = NSColor(hex: "233C64") // Equals 35,60,100,1

Access to individual color value:

let myColor = UIColor(red: 120, green: 205, blue: 44, alpha: 0.3)
print(myColor.redComponent) // 120
print(myColor.greenComponent) // 205
print(myColor.blueComponent) // 44
print(myColor.alpha) // 0.3

Get lighter or darker variants of colors instances:

let color = UIColor(red: 0.5, green: 0.5, blue: 1.0, alpha: 1.0)
let lighter = color.lighter(amount: 0.5)
let darker = color.darker(amount: 0.5)
// OR
let lighter = color.lighter()
let darker = color.darker()

let color = NSColor(red: 0.5, green: 0.5, blue: 1.0, alpha: 1.0)
let lighter = color.lighter(amount: 0.5)
let lighter = color.lighter()
// OR
let darker = color.darker(amount: 0.5)
let darker = color.darker()

let data = Data(hexString: hexString)

Get hex string from data:

let data = Data(...)
let string = data.toHexString()
// string = "6261736520313020697320736F2062617369632E206261736520313620697320776865726520697427732061742C20796F2E" if using previous example value

Convert date to string:

let now = Date()
print(now.string())
print(now.string(dateStyle: .medium, timeStyle: .medium))
print(now.string(format: "yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm:ss"))

See how much time passed:

let now = Date()
let later = Date(timeIntervalSinceNow: -100000)
print(later.days(since: now)) // 1.15740740782409
print(later.hours(since: now)) // 27.7777777733571

Easily get union of two dictionaries:

let dic1 = ["one": 1, "two": 2]
let dic2 = ["one": 1, "four": 4]

let dic3 = dic1.union(values: dic2)
print(dic3) // ["one": 1, "two": 2, "four": 4]

map a dictionary:

let dic = ["a": 1, "b": 2, "c": 3]
let result = dic.map { key, value in
    return (key.uppercased(), "\(value * 2)")
}
print(dic) // ["A": "2, "B": "4", "C": "6"]

flatMap a dictionary:

let dic = ["a": 1, "b": 2, "c": 3]
let result = dic.flatMap { key, value -> (String, String)? in
    if value % 2 == 0 {
        return nil
    }
    return (key.uppercased(), "\(value * 2)")
}
print(dic) // ["A": "2, "C": "6"]

Get difference of two dictionaries:

let dic1 = ["one": 1, "two": 2]
let dic2 = ["one": 1, "four": 4]
difference(with: dic1, dic2) // ["two": 2, "four": 4]

Merge several dictionaries:

let dic1 = ["one": 1, "two": 2]
let dic2 = ["three": 3, "four": 4]

UIView extension

Change the frame of the view easily:

let aView = UIView(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: 100, height: 100))
aView.x += 100 // move  to right
aView.y += 100 // move downwards
aView.width -= 10 // make the view narrower
aView.height -= 10 // make the view shorter 

Apply a corner radius to the view:

let view = UIView()
view.applyCornerRadius(10)
view.applyCornerRadius(20, maskedCorners: [.layerMaxXMaxYCorner])

Find a subview using its `accessibilityIdentifier, useful to tests private outlets:

aView.findView(forIdentifier: "accessibilityIdentifier")

Automates your localizables:

aView.translateSubviews()

It will iterate on all the subviews of the view, and use the text / placeholder as key in NSLocalizedString. By settings your localizable key in your xib / storyboard, all yours string will be automatically translated just by calling the above method.

Add constraints between a view and its superview:

aView.addConstraints() // Add constraints to all edges with zero insets
aView.addConstraints(to: [.top, .bottom]) // Add constraints to top and bottom edges with zero insets
aView.addConstraints(to: [.top, .left], insets: UIEdgeInsets(top: 10, left: 20, bottom: 0, right: 0)) // Add constraints to top and left edges with custom insets

UIViewController extension

Generate a Xcode preview for any view controllers:

@available(iOS 13, *)
struct MyViewPreview: PreviewProvider {
    static var previews: some View {
        MyViewController().preview
    }
}

Reset the navigation stack by deleting previous view controllers:

let navController = UINavigationController()
navController.pushViewController(vc1, animated: true)
navController.pushViewController(vc2, animated: true)
navController.pushViewController(vc3, animated: true)
vc3.removePreviousControllers(animated: true)
print(navController.viewControllers) // [vc3]

Check if ViewController is onscreen and not hidden:

let viewController = UIViewController()
print(viewController.isVisible) // false

Check if ViewController is presented modally:

let viewController = UIViewController()
print(viewController.isModal)

Open Safari modally:

let url = URL(string: "https://www.apple.com")
vc.openSafariVC(url: url, delegate: self)

Add a child view controller to another controller:

vc.addChildController(childVC, subview: vc.view, animated: true, duration: 0.35, options: [.curveEaseInOut, .transitionCrossDissolve])

Add a child view controller to a container view:

vc.addChildController(childVC, in: containerView)

Remove a child view controller:

vc.removeChildController(childVC)

UIKit Protocols:

NibLoadable

Make your UIView subclasses conform to this protocol to instantiate them from their NIB safely. Note: Be sure that your UIView is based on a Nib, and is used as the Xib's root view.

class NibLoadableView: UIView, NibLoadable {
    // ...
}

let view = NibLoadableView.loadFromNib()

NibOwnerLoadable

Make your UIView subclasses conform to this protocol to instantiate them from their Xib's File Owner safely. Note: Be sure that your UIView is based on a Nib, and is used as the Xib's File's Owner.

class NibLoadableView: UIView, NibOwnerLoadable {
    // ...

    required init?(coder aDecoder: NSCoder) {
      super.init(coder: aDecoder)
      self.loadNibContent()
    }

}

// Then use it directly from another xib or whatever...

AppKit, Cocoa Extensions

NSView extension

Change the frame of the view easily

let aView = NSView(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: 100, height: 100))
aView.x += 100 // move  to right
aView.y += 100 // move downwards
aView.width -= 10 // make the view narrower
aView.height -= 10 // make the view shorter 

Automates your localizables

aView.convertLocalizables()

It will iterate on all the subviews of the view, and use the text / placeholder as key in NSLocalizedString. By settings your localizable key in your xib / storyboard, all yours string will be automatically translated just by calling the above method.

Protocols

Injectable

Protocol to do ViewController Data Injection with Storyboards and Segues in Swift. Inspired from Nastasha's blog:

class RedPillViewController: UIViewController, Injectable {

    @IBOutlet weak private var mainLabel: UILabel!

    // the type matches the IOU's type
    typealias T = String

    // this is my original dependency (IOU)
    // I can now make this private!
    private var mainText: String!

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()

        // this will crash if the IOU is not set
        assertDependencies()

        // using the IOU if needed here,
        // but using it later is fine as well
        mainLabel.text = mainText
    }

    // Injectable Implementation
    func inject(text: T) {
        mainText = text
    }

    func assertDependencies() {
        assert(mainText != nil)
    }
}

// ViewController that will inject data...
override func prepareForSegue(segue: UIStoryboardSegue, sender: AnyObject?) {

    switch segueIdentifierForSegue(segue) {
    case .TheRedPillExperience
        let redPillVC = segue.destinationViewController as? RedPillViewController
        redPillVC?.inject("😈")
    case .TheBluePillExperience:
        let bluePillVC = segue.destinationViewController as? BluePillViewController
        bluePillVC?.inject("👼")
    }
}

Occupiable

The following use cases works for String Array, Dictionary, and Set

isEmpty / isNotEmpty

No optional types only

var string = "Hello world"
print(string.isNotEmpty) // true
print(string.isEmpty) // false

isNilOrEmpty

Optional types only

let string: String? = ""
print(string.isNilOrEmpty) // true

Then

Syntactic sugar for Swift initializers:

let label = UILabel().then {
    $0.textAlignment = .Center
    $0.textColor = .blackColor()
    $0.text = "Hello, World!"
}

PropertyWrappers

UserDefaultsBacked

Type safe access to UserDefaults with support for default values.

struct SettingsViewModel {
    @UserDefaultsBacked(key: "search-page-size", defaultValue: 20)
    var numberOfSearchResultsPerPage: Int

    @UserDefaultsBacked(key: "signature")
    var messageSignature: String?
}

Others

UnitTesting

Grand Central Dispatch sugar syntax:

Detect if UITests are running:

if UnitTesting.isRunning {
  // tests are running
} else {
  // everything is fine, move along
}

Measure tests performance:

func testPerformance() {
  let measurement = measure {
    // run operation
  }
}

UITesting

Detect if UITests are running:

if UITesting.isRunning {
  // tests are running
} else {
  // everything is fine, move along
}

Shell Utility

(macOS only)

Runs a command on a system shell and provides the return code for success, STDOUT, and STDERR.

STDOUT as one continuous String:

let (rCode, stdOut, stdErr) = SystemUtility.shell(["ls", "-l", "/"])
// rCode = 0 (which is "true" in shell)
// stdOut = "total 13\ndrwxrwxr-x+ 91 root  admin  2912 Feb 11 01:24 Applications" ...  etc
// stdErr = [""]

STDOUT as array of Strings separated by newlines:

let (rCode, stdOut, stdErr) = SystemUtility.shellArrayOut(["ls", "-l", "/"])
// rCode = 0 (which is "true" in shell)
// stdOut = ["total 13", "drwxrwxr-x+ 91 root  admin  2912 Feb 11 01:24 Applications" ...  etc]
// stdErr = [""]
