Shark

Build

Shark is a Swift command line tool that generates type safe enums for your image assets, color assets, localizations and fonts.

Because Shark reads your .xcodeproj to find these assets, the setup is extremely simple.

Motivation

Here's what a generated Shark.swift file looks like and how it is used in a codebase:

// Shark.swift
// Generated by Shark https://github.com/kaandedeoglu/Shark

import UIKit

// swiftlint:disable all
public enum Shark {
    private static let bundle: Bundle = {
        class Custom {}
        return Bundle(for: Custom.self)
    }()

    public enum I {
        public enum Button {
            public static var profile: UIImage { return UIImage(named:"profile", in: bundle, compatibleWith: nil)! }
            public static var cancel: UIImage { return UIImage(named:"cancel", in: bundle, compatibleWith: nil)! }
            public static var user_avatar: UIImage { return UIImage(named:"user_avatar", in: bundle, compatibleWith: nil)! }
        }
    }

    public enum C {
        public static var blue1: UIColor { return UIColor(named: "blue1", in: bundle, compatibleWith: nil)! }
        public static var blue2: UIColor { return UIColor(named: "blue2", in: bundle, compatibleWith: nil)! }
        public static var gray1: UIColor { return UIColor(named: "gray1", in: bundle, compatibleWith: nil)! }
        public static var gray2: UIColor { return UIColor(named: "gray2", in: bundle, compatibleWith: nil)! }
        public static var green1: UIColor { return UIColor(named: "green1", in: bundle, compatibleWith: nil)! }
        public static var green2: UIColor { return UIColor(named: "green2", in: bundle, compatibleWith: nil)! }
    }

    public enum F {
        public static func gothamBold(ofSize size: CGFloat) -> UIFont { return UIFont(name: "Gotham-Bold", size: size)! }
        public static func gothamMedium(ofSize size: CGFloat) -> UIFont { return UIFont(name: "Gotham-Medium", size: size)! }
        public static func gothamRegular(ofSize size: CGFloat) -> UIFont { return UIFont(name: "Gotham-Regular", size: size)! }
    }

    public enum L {
        public enum button {
            /// Login
            public static var login: String { return NSLocalizedString("button.login", bundle: bundle, comment: "") }

            /// Logout
            public static var logout: String { return NSLocalizedString("button.logout", bundle: bundle, comment: "") }
        }

        public enum login {
            /// Please log in to continue
            public static var title: String { return NSLocalizedString("login.title", bundle: bundle, comment: "") }

            /// Skip login and continue
            public static var skip: String { return NSLocalizedString("login.skip", bundle: bundle, comment: "") }

            public enum error {
                /// Login failed
                public static var title: String { return NSLocalizedString("login.error.title", bundle: bundle, comment: "") }

                /// Operation failed with error: %@
                public static func message(_ value1: String) -> String {
                    return String(format: NSLocalizedString("login.error.message", bundle: bundle, comment: ""), value1)
                }
            }
        }
    }
}

// At the call site
imageView.image = Shark.I.Button.profile
label.font = Shark.F.gothamBold(ofSize: 16.0)
label.text = Shark.L.login.title
view.backgroundColor = Shark.C.green1

// You can also make it prettier with typealiases
typealias I = Shark.I
typealias C = Shark.C
typealias F = Shark.F
typealias L = Shark.L

imageView.image = I.Button.profile
label.font = F.gothamBold(ofSize: 16.0)
label.text = L.login.error.message("I disobeyed my masters")
view.backgroundColor = C.green1

There are a few things to notice:

  • Image assets are namespaced by folder. For example all the images in your Assets.xcassets/Buttons folder will live under an enum called Buttons.
  • Localizations are namespaced with separators. Currently Shark uses the dot symbol . as the separator. As you can see localization keys are recursively namespaced until we get to the last component.

Installation

Brew

brew install kaandedeoglu/formulae/shark

Manually

Clone the project, then do:

> swift build -c release
> cp ./build/release/Shark /usr/local/bin

You can then verify the installation by doing

> shark --help

Setup

  • Add a new Run Script phase to your target's build phases. This build phase should ideally run before the Compile Sources phase. The script body should look like the following:

    if [ -x "$(command -v shark)" ]; then
    shark $PROJECT_FILE_PATH $PROJECT_DIR/$PROJECT_NAME/
    fi
    

    the if/fi block makes sure that Shark runs only if it's installed on the current machine.

  • Build your project. You should now see a file named Shark.swift in your project folder.

  • Add this file to your target. Voila! Shark.swift will be updated every time you build the project.

  • Alternatively you can do the following:

    # Write to a specific file called MyAssets.swift
    shark $PROJECT_FILE_PATH $PROJECT_DIR/$PROJECT_NAME/MyAssets.swift
    
    # Write to a specific file in a different folder
    shark $PROJECT_FILE_PATH $PROJECT_DIR/$PROJECT_NAME/Utility/MyAssets.swift
    

Options

Shark also accepts the following command line options to configure behavior

--name

By default, the top level enum everything else lives under is called - you guessed it - Shark. You can change this by using the --name flag.

 shark $PROJECT_FILE_PATH $PROJECT_DIR/$PROJECT_NAME --name Assets

--locale

By default, Shark will try to find English localizations to generate the localizations enum. If there are no English .strings file in your project, or you'd like Shark to take another localization as base, you can specify the language code with the --locale flag.

# Use Spanish localizations for generation
shark $PROJECT_FILE_PATH $PROJECT_DIR/$PROJECT_NAME --locale es

--target

In case your Xcode project has multiple application targets, you should specify which one Shark should look at by using the --target flag.

shark $PROJECT_FILE_PATH $PROJECT_DIR/$PROJECT_NAME --target MyAppTarget

--help

Prints the overview, example usage and available flags to the console.
