PRGTipView is a drop-in solution for adding onboarding tips to your apps. It supports:

  • Title, detail and dismissal button
  • Give focus on a particular view with configurable insets
  • Automatic placement of title, detail and the button above or below the focused view (if provided)
  • Presentation and dismissal animations
  • Focus view pulsating effect (using the Pulsar Library)



To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.


  • iOS 9.3+
  • Swift 5


PRGTipView is available through CocoaPods. To install
it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'PRGTipView'


    //1. Create a PRGTipViewConfiguration instance
    let config = PRGTipViewConfiguration()

    //2. Customize the TipView via the properties
    config.titleText = "This is a title"
    config.detailText = "This is the detail text, that adds more information to your tip."
    config.buttonText = "OK"
    config.focusView = button
    config.focusInsets = UIEdgeInsets(top: 8, left: 4, bottom: 8, right: 4)
    config.focusDistance = 50
    config.circularFocus = false
    config.animateIn = true
    config.animateOut = true

    //3a. You can either use the static func like described below: self, withConfiguration: config, completion: nil)
    //3b. Or you can create a PRGTipView instance and present it (it's a ViewController subclass)
    let tipView = PRGTipView(configuration: config)
    present(tipView, animated: false, completion: nil)

About the Pulsar Library

At the time of publishing PRGTipView, the Pulsar library has not been updated on the Cocoapods repositories and cannot be used as a direct dependency, thus resorting in including the v2.0.5 source code in the bundle. As soon as the dependencies are satisfied via Cocoapods, we will update PRGTipView to use Pulsar as a pod dependency.
