A Clock UI for SwiftUI

A Clock UI for SwiftUI

SwiftClockUI

SwiftUI library to display a clock. You can move the arms to change the time, change the style of the clock and customise some configurations.

Clock UI for SwiftUI

This library has been tested

  • ✅💻 macOS Catalina 10.15.3
  • ✅📱 iOS 13.3
  • ✅📱 iOS 14.0 Beta (some snapshots tests are failing but they are all correct 😅)

Bind a date

struct ContentView: View {
    @State private var date = Date()

    var body: some View {
        ClockView().environment(\.clockDate, $date)
    }
}

Simply set .environment(\.clockDate, $date) $date has to be a binding.
If you want something constant (just for showing the time), you could pass .constant(yourDate)

  • Arms move when date are set (take hour and minute in account)
  • Move the Arms change the date (hour and minute depending on which arm you've moved)

Change Clock style

There is 4 different clock style:

Style Picture
Classic ClockViewClassic
Art Nouveau ClockViewArtNouveau
Drawing ClockViewDrawing
Steampunk ClockViewSteampunk

To set the style: .environment(\.clockStyle, .steampunk) for Steampunk style for instance.

struct ContentView: View {
    @State private var clockStyle: ClockStyle = .classic

    var body: some View {
        ClockView().environment(\.clockStyle, clockStyle)
    }
}

\.clockStyle is typed as enum ClockStyle which is Identifiable, CaseIterable, and has a convenient method to get the description (in English): public var description: String

It's very useful when you want to iterate over this enum to let the user choose the clock style, for instance you can easily do something like this:

struct StylePicker: View {
    @Binding var clockStyle: ClockStyle

    var body: some View {
        Picker("Style", selection: clockStyle) {
            ForEach(ClockStyle.allCases) { style in
                Text(style.description).tag(style)
            }
        }
        .pickerStyle(SegmentedPickerStyle())
    }
}

Change elements color

You can also change the color of Clock elements. Again with changing some .environment keys.

ClockView()
    .environment(\.clockArmColors, ClockArmColors(
        minute: .red,
        hour: .blue
    ))
    .environment(\.clockBorderColor, .orange)
    .environment(\.clockIndicatorsColor, .green)

In light mode, you could expect a result like this:

ClockViewClassicAndColors

App using this library

TODO

  • 👆 Add a bigger zone for dragging arms, it's not easy with the mouse on macOS
    • Use the new .hover and .hoverEffect from Swift 5.2 and Xcode 11.4
  • 👾 Add a smooth animation while resizing the window on macOS
