HexColor is a simple extension that lets you initialize UIColors the way they were meant to be initialized: With hex integer values.
To use HexColor with a project targeting iOS 7, simply copy
HexColor.swift into your project.
To integrate HexColor into your project add the following to your
platform :ios, '8.0' use_frameworks! pod 'HxColor', '~> 4.0'
To integrate Signals into your project using Carthage add the following to your
github "artman/HexColor" ~> 4.0
myLabel.textColor = UIColor(0xFFFFFF) // Let there be white myView.backgroundColor = UIColor(0x0f126f) // Deep blue // Yay, finally you can stop to use this crap: // UIColor.colorWithRed(0x0f/255.0, green: 0x12/255.0, blue: 0x65/255.0, 1.0)
Need colors with alpha? No worries:
myLabel.textColor = UIColor(0xFF0000).alpha(0.5) // Red with 50% opacity myLabel.textColor = UIColor(0xFF0000, alpha: 0.5) // Another way to do this
You can also mix two colors together easily:
myLabel.textColor = UIColor(0x3377FF).mix(with: 0xFF2222, amount: 0.25)
