  • EditingStack manages the history of editing and renders images. It’s like a headless browser.
  • Headless rendering with using EditingStack

  • Blazing fast previewing by Metal power.
  • Drawing supported – masking blurry

  • Opening the image from URL
  • Supported UIKit and SwiftUI
  • Downloading image supported


  • Swift 5.3 (Xcode12.4+)
