SFSymbol: SFSymbol and SFSymbol 2

Build Status Swift 5.3 Swift Package Manager compatible CocoaPods compatible Carthage compatible License

All the SFSymbols at your fingertips (SFSymbol 1.1 & 2)


SFSymbol and SFSymbol2 are an enums that contain the identifier strings of all of apple’s SFSymbol and SFSymbol2.

For example SFSymbol.playCircle produces the String "play.circle" that can then be used to instantiate a system symbol via:


    UIImage(symbol: .playCircle)



    Image(symbol: .playCircle)


SFSymbols (1.1 and 2) is a real treat from apple, Apple’s official list of Symbols that are available to use free of charge when writing software on any of Apple’s recent platforms. There is one downfall however, it is a pain in the neck to look up exact symbol names, take for example:


That is a long string to remember and digging through the catalog of SF Symbols to find in would be quite a waste of time.

Wouldn’t it be easier if you could just use code completion?

Thats what this super micro library aims to do.


Swift Package Manager (Preferred)

Since Xcode integrated swift package manager natively into the IDE you can add SFSymbol simply by:

File-> Swift Packages -> Add Package Dependency...

when prompted to enter a package URL paste:


and click next & finish to automagically install SFSymbol through Xcode & SPM!


Don’t want that additional third party dependency? Then just simply copy over the file SFSymbol.swift into your project’s appropriate folder!


Just add this line to your podfile:

pod 'SFSymbol'


github "Nirma/SFSymbol"
