A flow view for SwiftUI

What's New



This fixes an alignment issue where views could be be misplaced when using a non-leading alignment. This occurred when the bounds proposed was non-zero, which is common when a Layout is used inside another layout container.


A layout for placing views in a flow-like arrangement in SwiftUI. A Flow organizes views sequentially, wrapping them onto new lines when the current line is filled. The alignment and spacing between views can be customized. Flow layouts are commonly used to display a set of tags.

Left-aligned tags. Right-aligned tags. Multi-colored rectangles languidly animating between different alignments. Multi-colored rectangles bordered in teal enthusiastically and jauntily animating between different alignments.

Using Flow is similar to using SwiftUI's VStack and HStack layouts/views. Alignment and spacing changes can be animated and since Flow conforms to the Layout protocol you can even animate changing to an entirely different layout type!


import Flow

struct ContentView: View {
    @State var tags: [Tag]

    var body: some View {
        // Default .topLeading alignment and system spacing.
        Flow { 
            ForEach(tags) { tag in
        // Alignment and spacing specified.
        Flow(alignment: .bottomTrailing, spacing: 10) {
            ForEach(tags) { tag in
