Twitter

The clean and shiny search bar that does what UISearchBar does only with dirty hacks. This view is designed to tackle the customization limits of UISearchBar. The difference here is that this class does not inherit UISearchBar but composes a new UIView object by using a UITextField that is much easier to use. These are the limits of the UISearchBar:

  • no clean way to left align the placeholder
  • the cancel button is hard to tailor to your needs
  • generally the appearance is not customizable (e.g. the font of the text)
  • there are some strange behaviors when you set a custom background image

Since I use a UITextField these restrictions do not apply.

Installation

Swift Package Manager

In Xcode open your target list and select your project. Click the tab Swift Packages and there the small + icon. Enter the URL of this repository, select the version you want to install - usually the preset is okay - and confirm.

CocoaPods

Since SHSearchBar uses localized resources I dropped CocoaPods support in favor for SPM from version 2.0.0. Please integrate the package via SPM (see above).

Carthage

Since SHSearchBar uses localized resources I dropped Carthage support in favor for SPM version 2.0.0. Please integrate the package via SPM (see above).

Examples

The repo includes an example project. It shows shows different use cases of the searchbar. To run it, just type pod try SHSearchBar in your console and it will be cloned and opened for you. The following images show some of these use cases:
