Why use this camera framework

  • High codebeat GPA
  • Low class scoped variable count (In order to better handle overall state)
  • Setup errors can be handled from the POV of the initiator
  • Operation errors is handled in the onCapture completion block
  • Callback based (as oppose to delegate based) More info
  • Easily styleable (The camera view is separate from the UI view)
  • No third-party libraries or Sugar
  • Entirely programatic (No storyboard)
  • Thoroughly documented (Artifacts and sideEffects etc)
  • Uses Sindre-lint style guide
  • Small footprint, only ~750 LOC (Lines of code) ### Notes:
  • In order to keep things simple, The UI is CGRect based. Use your own Autolayout distro like SnapKit etc when adding additional UI


  • SPM: .package(url: "https://github.com/eonist/HybridCamera.git", .branch("master"))
  • Manual: Open HybridCamera.xcodeproj

IMPORTANT: Make sure info.plist has these variables

Example code:

self.view = HybridCamView()
view.camView.onPhotoCaptureComplete = { (image: UIImage?, url: URL?, error: Error?) in
   Swift.print("On photo capture complete \(url)")
hybridCamView.camView.onVideoCaptureComplete = { (url: URL?, error: Error?) in
   Swift.print("On Video capture complete \(url)")
