Animoji is an iOS library that gives access to the private framework AvatarKit to generate Animoji, just like the Messages app.

Supports iOS 12.2 Animoji (Boar, Giraffe, Owl, Shark)!

Animoji uses iPhone X and iOS 11.1 features so no Simulator support yet.

let animoji = Animoji(frame: self.view.bounds)
animoji.setPuppet(name: .cat)


Animoji is available via CocoaPods and Carthage.
