This repository is a wrapper for UIVisualEffectView and NSVisualEffectView, which will be useful until SwiftUI introduces an official view that does the same.

SwiftUI does not have an official UIVisualEffectView wrapper, so a number of folks have attempted to make one with varying degrees of success. Fortunately for all of us, Apple has released their own wrapper for both iOS and macOS, licensed under the MIT license. This repository hosts that wrapper as a Swift package, so you can use it yourself.

I (Paul Hudson) have made only tiny changes to their code to aid readability, and to allow it to work across both platforms from a single package.

Example code

This will place a VisualEffectBlur over a linear gradient, with some text inside the blur getting a vibrancy effect.

import SwiftUI
import VisualEffects

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        ZStack {
            LinearGradient(
                gradient: Gradient(colors: [.red, .blue]),
                startPoint: .topLeading,
                endPoint: .bottomTrailing
            )

            VisualEffectBlur(blurStyle: .systemUltraThinMaterial, vibrancyStyle: .fill) {
                Text("Hello World!")
                    .font(.largeTitle)
            }
        }
    }
}
