SwiftfulRouting 🕊

Native, declarative routing for SwiftUI applications

Setup time: 1 minute

Sample project: https://github.com/SwiftfulThinking/SwiftfulRoutingExample

Overview 🤓

SwiftUI is a declarative framework, and therefore, a SwiftUI router should be declarative by nature. Routers based on programatic code do not declare the view heirarchy in advance, but rather at the time of execution. The solution is to declare all modifiers to support the routing in advance by adding a new set of modifiers at the root of each segue’s destination where the destination is an optional, type-erased view. This maintains a declarative view heirarchy while allowing the developer to still determine the destination at the time of execution.

Setup ☕️

Add the package your your xcode


Import the package

import SwiftfulRouting

Add a RouterView

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        RouterView {

The Router will be available as an EnvironmentObject of all child views of RouterView. Each Router object can simultaneously support one active segue, one active alert, and one active modal. A new Router is created and added to the Environment after each segue.

struct MyView: View {

    @EnvironmentObject private var router: Router
    var body: some View {
        VStack {
                .onTapGesture {
                    router.showScreen(.push) {
                .onTapGesture {
                    router.showAlert(.alert, title: "Title") {
                        Button("OK") {
                        Button("Cancel") {
                .onTapGesture {
                    router.showModal {

Segues ⏩

Router supports native SwiftUI segues, including .push (NavigationLink), .sheet, and .fullScreenCover.

router.showScreen(.push, destination: () -> View)
router.showScreen(.sheet, destination: () -> View)
router.showScreen(.fullScreenCover, destination: () -> View)

Alerts 🚨

Router supports native SwiftUI alerts, including .alert and .confirmationDialog.

router.showAlert(.alert, title: String, alert: () -> View)
router.showAlert(.confirmationDialog, title: String, alert: () -> View)

Modals 🪧

Router also supports any modal transition, which displays above the current content.

router.showModal(destination: () -> View)
  transition: AnyTransition, 
  animation: Animation, 
  alignment: Alignment, 
  backgroundColor: Color?, 
  useDeviceBounds: Bool, 
  destination: () -> View)
