Font management (System & Custom) for iOS and tvOS

What's New

2020 End of World Edition



This release removes some deprecated fonts and updates which fonts are available on iOS and tvOS.
Some fonts are available on both platforms now, some other fonts have also been added and deleted.

Since some fonts have been retired this technically is a breaking release but not because of functionality being added or removed
from this library.

If I forgot anything or you feel that something could be done better by all means FEEL FREE TO CONTRIBUTE!

2020 is turning out to be an unstable year, looks like all bets are off at this point.
Please stay safe and take care.

Font management (System & Custom) for iOS and tvOS


No more wasted time searching for names of UIFont fonts and no more surprises at runtime if a font name was mistyped. This library is simply one extension to UIFont and one Font enum with a case for each system font on iOS and tvOS. Custom font support is also available, please keep reading for details!

Instead of using the String based constructor native to UIFont:

let font = UIFont(name: "Arial-BoldItalicMT", size: 12.0)

You can now simply start typing the name of the font enum and let code completion help you:

This library currently provides two different options for creating UIFont objects. The first is calling the font name off of the provided Font enumeration and then calling of(size:) to provide the desired size.

let myFont = Font.helvetica.of(size: 12.0)

The other UIFont creation method offered by this library is similar to the normal UIFont constructor except that instead of providing a String of the desired font, a case of the Font enum is provided instead.

let font = UIFont(font: .arialBoldItalicMT, size: 12.0)

What about Custom Fonts?

Custom Fonts can be added with the help of the FontRepresentable protocol. Simply create your own CustomFont String based enumeration that adapts the FontRepresentable and add a case per font that you want to add like so:

// In your project using custom fonts

enum CustomFont: String, FontRepresentable {
    case alexBrushRegular = "AlexBrush-Regular"

CustomFont.alexBrushRegular.of(size: 12.0) // => UIFont
