Getting Started

Method 1

Adding Color Kit as a dependency to an existing project

  1. Copy that URL from the github repo
  2. In Xcode -> File -> Swift Packages -> Add Package Dependencies
  3. Paste the URL Into the box
  4. Specify the minimum version number 1.0.0
  5. Add import ColorKit to the top of the file you are adding a picker to.
  6. Follow the implementation steps for the picker you wish to use (these will generally be found in the top level comments for the picker, you can also find them in the readme)

Method 2

Clone the example project and play around with all the different examples to get a feel for the library. If you are really feeling adventurous try making your own custom styles for one of the gradient pickers. Its super easy and Color Kit even comes with snippets to help get you started.

Components

ColorToken

ColorToken is a data object used to store the various color values that could be used with the pickers. I wont go into the possible initializers here, but I implore you to take a look at the source code. The values stored within ColorToken are:

  • id: UUID - a unique identifier created at initialization
  • dateCreated: Date - a timestamp created at initialization
  • name: String - The name you specify for the color (Default: "New")
  • colorFormulation: ColorFormulation - An enumeration describing which type of color is being used rgb, hsb, cmyk, grayscale
  • rgbColorSpace: RGBColorSpace - A wrapper enum for SwiftUI's RGBColorSpace (Default: sRGB)
  • white: Double - white value used with grayscale should be between 0 and 1 (Default: 0.5)
  • red: Double - red value used with RGB should be between 0 and 1 (Default: 0.5)
  • green: Double - green value used with RGB should be between 0 and 1 (Default: 0.5)
  • blue: Double - blue value used with RGB should be between 0 and 1 (Default: 0.5)
  • hue: Double - hue value used with HSB should be between 0 and 1 (Default: 0.5)
  • saturation: Double - saturation value used with HSB should be between 0 and 1 (Default: 0.5)
  • brightness: Double - brightness value used with HSB should be between 0 and 1 (Default: 0.5)
  • cyan: Double - cyan value used with CMYK should be between 0 and 1 (Default: 0.5)
  • magenta: Double - magenta value used with CMYK should be between 0 and 1 (Default: 0.5)
  • yellow: Double - yellow value used with CMYK should be between 0 and 1 (Default: 0.5)
  • keyBlack: Double - keyBlack value used with CMYK should be between 0 and 1 (Default: 0.5)
  • alpha: Double - alpha value used with any type of color formulation should be between 0 and 1 (Default: 1)

SwiftUI's Color can be easily be generated by accessing ColorToken.color value.

Color Pickers

Each of the various color pickers and sliders are really just styled version of components from the Sliders library.

RGB Color Picker RGB Color Picker CMYK Color Picker Gray scale Color Picker

Alpha Slider

A pre-styled Slider used to change the alpha/opacity of a ColorToken The AlphaSlider view is really just a styled LSlider with a custom binding to a ColorToken

AlphaSlider

RGB Sliders

A set of pre-styled RGB sliders that contain a gradient representing the color if that slider was dragged to either of its limits. The RGBColorPicker view is really just 3 styled LSlider's with a custom binding to a ColorToken

RGB Sliders

Saturation Brightness TrackPad

A styled TrackPad that uses two composited linear gradients to get the desired 2D saturation brightness gradient effect

Saturation Brightness TrackPad

Hue Slider

A styled LSlider with a background gradient representing a full hue rotation.

Hue Slider

CMYK Sliders

Conceptually similar to the RGB Sliders. These represent the values of a CMYK color

CMYK Sliders

Bonus Circular HSB Picker

This one isn't a part of the library but is available as an example implementation within the ColorKitExamples project. It makes use of an MTKView to from the MetalKit framework to draw the circular gradient.

CMYK Sliders

Gradient Pickers

Linear

A Component view used to create and style a Linear Gradient to the users liking. The sub components that make up the gradient picker are

  1. Gradient: The Linear gradient containing view
  2. Start Handle: A draggable view representing the start location of the gradient
  3. End Handle: A draggable view representing the end location of the gradient
  4. LinearStop: A draggable view representing a gradient stop that is constrained to be located within the start and and handles locations

Linear Gradient Picker Breakdown

Important: You must create a GradientManager ObservedObject and then apply it to the LinearGradientPicker or the view containing it using the environmentObject method

Styling The Picker

In order to style the picker you must create a struct that conforms to the LinearGradientPickerStyle protocol. Conformance requires the implementation of 4 separate methods. To make this easier just copy and paste the following style based on the DefaultLinearGradientPickerStyle. After creating your custom style apply it by calling the linearGradientPickerStyle method on the LinearGradientPicker or a view containing it.

  struct <#My Picker Style#>: LinearGradientPickerStyle {

     func makeGradient(gradient: LinearGradient) -> some View {
            RoundedRectangle(cornerRadius: 5)
                .fill(gradient)
                .overlay(RoundedRectangle(cornerRadius: 5).stroke(Color.white))
        }

      func makeStartHandle(configuration: GradientHandleConfiguration) -> some View {
          Capsule()
              .foregroundColor(Color.white)
              .frame(width: 25, height: 75)
              .rotationEffect(configuration.angle + Angle(degrees: 90))
              .animation(.none)
              .shadow(radius: 3)
              .opacity(configuration.isHidden ? 0 : 1)
      }

      func makeEndHandle(configuration: GradientHandleConfiguration) -> some View {
          Capsule()
              .foregroundColor(Color.white)
              .frame(width: 25, height: 75)
              .rotationEffect(configuration.angle + Angle(degrees: 90))
              .animation(.none)
              .shadow(radius: 3)
              .opacity(configuration.isHidden ? 0 : 1)
      }

      func makeStop(configuration: GradientStopConfiguration) -> some View {
          Capsule()
              .foregroundColor(configuration.color)
              .frame(width: 20, height: 55)
              .overlay(Capsule().stroke( configuration.isSelected ? Color.yellow : Color.white ))
              .rotationEffect(configuration.angle + Angle(degrees: 90))
              .animation(.none)
              .shadow(color: configuration.isSelected ? Color.white : Color.black, radius: 3)
              .opacity(configuration.isHidden ? 0 : 1)

      }
  }

Radial

A Component view used to create and style a RadialGradient to the users liking. The sub components that make up the gradient picker are

  1. Gradient: The Radial Gradient containing view
  2. Center Thumb: A draggable view representing the center of the gradient
  3. StartHandle: A draggable circle representing the start radius that grows larger/small as you drag away/closer from the center thumb
  4. EndHandle: A draggable circle representing the end radius that grows larger/small as you drag away/closer from the center thumb
  5. RadialStop: A draggable view contained to the gradient bar, represents the unit location of the stop
  6. Gradient Bar: A slider like container filled with a linear gradient created with the gradient stops.

Radial Gradient Picker Breakdown

Important: You must create a GradientManager ObservedObject and then apply it to the RadialGradientPicker or the view containing it using the environmentObject method

Styling The Picker

In order to style the picker you must create a struct that conforms to the RadialGradientPickerStyle protocol. Conformance requires the implementation of 6 separate methods. To make this easier just copy and paste the following style based on the DefaultRadialGradientPickerStyle. After creating your custom style apply it by calling the radialGradientPickerStyle method on the RadialGradientPicker or a view containing it.

  struct <#My Picker Style#>: RadialGradientPickerStyle {

       func makeGradient(gradient: RadialGradient) -> some View {
           RoundedRectangle(cornerRadius: 5)
               .fill(gradient)
               .overlay(RoundedRectangle(cornerRadius: 5).stroke(Color.white))
       }

      func makeCenter(configuration: GradientCenterConfiguration) -> some View {
          Circle().fill(configuration.isActive ? Color.yellow : Color.white)
              .frame(width: 35, height: 35)
              .opacity(configuration.isHidden ? 0 : 1)
              .animation(.easeIn)
      }

      func makeStartHandle(configuration: GradientHandleConfiguration) -> some View {
          Circle()
              .stroke(Color.white.opacity(0.001), style: StrokeStyle(lineWidth: 10))
              .overlay(Circle().stroke(Color.black, style: StrokeStyle(lineWidth: 1, dash: [10, 5])))
              .opacity(configuration.isHidden ? 0 : 1)
              .animation(.easeIn)
      }

      func makeEndHandle(configuration: GradientHandleConfiguration) -> some View {
          Circle()
              .stroke(Color.white.opacity(0.001), style: StrokeStyle(lineWidth: 10))
              .overlay(Circle().stroke(Color.white, style: StrokeStyle(lineWidth: 1, dash: [10, 5])))
              .opacity(configuration.isHidden ? 0 : 1)
              .animation(.easeIn)
      }

      func makeStop(configuration: GradientStopConfiguration) -> some View {
          Group {
              if !configuration.isHidden {
                  RoundedRectangle(cornerRadius: 5)
                      .foregroundColor(configuration.color)
                      .frame(width: 25, height: 45)
                      .overlay(RoundedRectangle(cornerRadius: 5).stroke( configuration.isSelected ? Color.yellow : Color.white ))
                      .shadow(color: configuration.isSelected ? Color.white : Color.black, radius: 3)
                      .transition(AnyTransition.opacity)
                      .animation(Animation.easeOut)
              }
          }
      }

      func makeBar(configuration: RadialGradientBarConfiguration) -> some View {
          Group {
              if !configuration.isHidden {
                  RoundedRectangle(cornerRadius: 5)
                      .fill(LinearGradient(gradient: configuration.gradient, startPoint: .leading, endPoint: .trailing))
                      .overlay(RoundedRectangle(cornerRadius: 5).stroke(Color.white))
                      .transition(AnyTransition.move(edge: .leading))
                      .animation(Animation.easeOut)
              }
          }
      }
  }

Angular

A Component view used to create and style an AngularGradient to the users liking The sub components that make up the gradient picker are

  1. Gradient: The Angular Gradient containing view
  2. Center Thumb: A draggable view representing the location of the gradients center
  3. Start Handle: A draggable view representing the start location of the gradient
  4. End Handle: A draggable view representing the end location of the gradient
  5. AngularStop: A draggable view representing a gradient stop that is constrained to be between the current stop and end angles locations

Angular Gradient Picker Breakdown

Important: You must create a GradientManager ObservedObject and then apply it to the AngularGradientPicker or the view containing it using the environmentObject method

Styling The Picker

In order to style the picker you must create a struct that conforms to the AngularGradientPickerStyle protocol. Conformance requires the implementation of 4 separate methods. To make this easier just copy and paste the following style based on the DefaultAngularGradientPickerStyle. After creating your custom style apply it by calling the angularGradientPickerStyle method on the AngularGradientPicker or a view containing it.
