Building useful libraries like these, takes time away from my family. I build these tools in my spare time because I feel its important to give back to the community. Please consider Sponsoring me as it helps keep me working on useful libraries like these 😬

You can also give me a follow and a 'thanks' anytime.

Features

Style APIs

Adopting the familiar SwiftUI style-based APIs, you can customize the appearance of almost all markdown elements either individually or composed.

struct CustomUnorderedBullets: UnorderedListBulletMarkdownStyle {
    func makeBody(configuration: Configuration) -> some View {
        // you can also provide a completely new View if preferred 👍
        configuration.label
            .foregroundColor(.blue)
    }
}

You can even customize animations since the library is composed of 100% SwiftUI elements only.

struct ScaledImageStyle: ImageMarkdownStyle {
    // image will scale up as its loaded, moving content out of the way
    func makeBody(configuration: Configuration) -> some View {
        configuration.label
            .transition(.scale)
    }
}

Modifiers for styling and visibility can also be placed anywhere in your SwiftUI hierarchy, just as you'd expect:

NavigationView {
    MarkdownText(markdown)
}
// Styling
.markdownQuoteStyle(.inset)
.markdownOrderedListBulletStyle(.tinted)
.markdownImageStyle(.animated)

// Visibility
.markdownCode(.visible)
.markdownThematicBreak(.hidden)

Demo App

A MarkdownText Demo is also available to better showcase the libraries capabilities.

Usage

Using the view couldn't be easier:

MarkdownText("Some **markdown** text")
LazyMarkdownText(someMassiveMarkdownText)

There's even a LazyMarkdownText view that loads its view's lazily for those cases where you need improved scrolling and loading performance.

Installation

You can install manually (by copying the files in the Sources directory) or using Swift Package Manager (preferred)

To install using Swift Package Manager, add this to the dependencies section of your Package.swift file:

.package(url: "https://github.com/shaps80/MarkdownText.git", .upToNextMinor(from: "1.0.0"))
