AXSwift 0.3.1


Version Carthage compatible

AXSwift is a Swift wrapper for macOS's C-based accessibility client APIs. Working with these APIs is error-prone and a huge pain, so AXSwift makes everything easier:

  • Modern API that's 100% Swift
  • Explicit error handling
  • Complete coverage of the underlying C API
  • Better documentation than Apple's, which is pretty poor

This framework is intended as a basic wrapper, and doesn't keep any state or do any "magic". That's up to you!

Using AXSwift


In your Package.swift:

.package(url: "", from: 0.2),


In your Cartfile:

github "tmandry/AXSwift" ~> 0.2


In your Podfile:

pod 'AXSwift', '~> 0.2'

See the source of AXSwiftExample and AXSwiftObserverExample for an example of the API.
