Message Kinds

public enum ChatMessageKind {
    /// A text message,
    /// supports emoji 👍🏻 (auto scales if text is all about emojis)
    case text(String)
    /// An image message, from local(UIImage) or remote(URL).
    case image(ImageLoadingKind)
    /// A location message, pins given location & presents on MapKit.
    case location(LocationItem)
    /// A contact message, generally for sharing purpose.
    case contact(ContactItem)
    /// Multiple options, disables itself after selection.
    case quickReply([QuickReplyItem])
    /// `CarouselItem`s that contains title, subtitle, image & button in a scrollable view
    case carousel([CarouselItem])
    /// A video message, opens the given URL.
    case video(VideoItem)


  • ChatView

Here below is minimum code required to get started (see up & running)
For detail, visit example project here

import SwiftyChat
import SwiftyChatMock

@State private var scrollToBottom = false
@State private var messages: [MockMessages.ChatMessageItem] = [] // for quick test assign MockMessages.generatedMessages()

// ChatMessageItem & ChatUserItem is a sample objects/structs 
// that conforms `ChatMessage` & `ChatUser` protocols.
ChatView<MockMessages.ChatMessageItem, MockMessages.ChatUserItem>(
    messages: $messages,
    scrollToBottom: $scrollToBottom
) {
    // InputView here, continue reading..
// ▼ Required
    // All parameters initialized by default, 
    // change as you want.
    messages.debounce(for: .milliseconds(650), scheduler: RunLoop.main),
    perform: { _ in
        scrollToBottom = true
// ...
  • InputView

You can investigate existing BasicInputView in project.
You can use it if it suits your need, or create a new one.
Recommended way is just clone this BasicInputView and modify (ex. add camera icon etc.)

// InputBarView variables
@State private var message = ""

var inputBarView: some View {
        message: $message, // Typed text.
        placeholder: "Type something",
        onCommit: { messageKind in
                .init(user: MockMessages.sender, messageKind: messageKind, isSender: true)
    // ▼ An extension that wraps view inside AnyView

// Pass in ChatView
ChatView(messages: $messages) {

Style and Customization

public class ChatMessageCellStyle: ObservableObject {
    let incomingTextStyle: TextCellStyle
    let outgoingTextStyle: TextCellStyle
    let incomingCellEdgeInsets: EdgeInsets

    let quickReplyCellStyle: QuickReplyCellStyle
    let carouselCellStyle: CarouselCellStyle
    let locationCellStyle: LocationCellStyle
