    Add Twitter Text Editor framework to your project

    Add the following lines to your Package.swift or use Xcode “Add Package Dependency…” menu.

    // In your `Package.swift`
    dependencies: [
        .package(name: "TwitterTextEditor", url: "", ...),
    targets: [
            name: ...,
            dependencies: [
                .product(name: "TwitterTextEditor", package: "TwitterTextEditor"),

    Use with other dependency management tools

    In case your project is not using Swift Package Manager, you can use Twitter Text Editor with other dependency management tools.


    To use Twitter Text Editor with CocoaPods, add next TwitterTextEditor.podspec in your project. do |spec| = "TwitterTextEditor"
      spec.version = "1.0.0" # Find the the version from the Git tags
      spec.authors = ""
      spec.summary = "TwitterTextEditor"
      spec.homepage = ""
      spec.platform = :ios, "11.0"
      spec.source = {
        :git => "", :tag => "#{spec.version}"
      spec.source_files  = "Sources/TwitterTextEditor/*.swift"

    Then, update Podfile in your project.

    pod 'TwitterTextEditor', :podspec => 'path/to/TwitterTextEditor.podspec'


    To use Twitter Text Editor with Carthage, update Cartfile in your project.

    github "twitter/TwitterTextEditor"

    Then, run following commands. This will create Carthage/Build/iOS/TwitterTextEditor.framework.

    $ carthage update
    $ (cd Carthage/Checkouts/TwitterTextEditor && swift package generate-xcodeproj)
    $ carthage build --platform iOS

    Follow the instructions to add the framework and Run Script phase to your project.


    See documentation.

    Use Twitter Text Editor in your project

    Twitter Text Editor provides a single view, TextEditorView, that has a similar API to UITextView and provides the most of features as a property or a delegate callback.

    Add it to your project as like the other views, and setup using each property or implement delegate callbacks.

    // In your view controller
    import TwitterTextEditor
    final class MyViewController: UIViewController {
        // ...
        override func viewDidLoad() {
            // ...
            let textEditorView = TextEditorView()
            textEditorView.text = "Meow"
            textEditorView.textAttributesDelegate = self
            // ...
        // ...
    extension MyViewController: TextEditorViewTextAttributesDelegate {
        func textEditorView(_ textEditorView: TextEditorView,
                            updateAttributedString attributedString: NSAttributedString,
                            completion: @escaping (NSAttributedString?) -> Void)
            // ...
