CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects. You can install it with the following command:

$ gem install cocoapods

To integrate PMAlertController into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git'
platform :ios, '9.0'

pod 'PMAlertController'

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install


Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks.

You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:

$ brew update
$ brew install carthage

To integrate PMAlertController into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "pmusolino/PMAlertController"

Run carthage update to build the framework and drag the built PMAlertController.framework into your Xcode project.


  1. Download and drop /Library folder in your project.
  2. Congratulations!


The usage is very similar to UIAlertController. PMAlertController has two styles: Alert & Walkthrough.

Alert Style: with this style, the alert has the width of 270 points, like Apple's UIAlertController.

Walkthrough Style: with walkthrough, the alert has the width of the screen minus 18 points from the left and the right bounds. This mode is intended to be used before authorization requests like the ones for location, push notifications and more.

Show a simple alert with two buttons and one textfield
//This code works with Swift 5

let alertVC = PMAlertController(title: "A Title", description: "My Description", image: UIImage(named: "img.png"), style: .alert)

alertVC.addAction(PMAlertAction(title: "Cancel", style: .cancel, action: { () -> Void in
            print("Capture action Cancel")

alertVC.addAction(PMAlertAction(title: "OK", style: .default, action: { () in
            print("Capture action OK")

alertVC.addTextField { (textField) in
            textField?.placeholder = "Location..."

self.present(alertVC, animated: true, completion: nil)
