Shiny is an iOS library that generates an iridescent effect view matched to the gyroscope, similar to the Apple Pay Cash card in the Wallet app.

Demo Video

$ pod try Shiny


  • iOS 9.0+
  • Xcode 9.0+
  • Swift 5 (Shiny 2.x), Swift 4 (Shiny 1.x)


Adding ShinyView programmatically (supports storyboard/xib too):

import Shiny

let shinyView = ShinyView(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: 320, height: 200))
shinyView.colors = [.gray, .red, .green, .blue, .gray]
shinyView.startUpdates() // necessary

You must call startUpdates() for the instance to observe motion changes. Calling stopUpdates() on the instance will stop motion updates.

func startUpdates() // Starts listening to motion updates.
func stopUpdates() // Stops listening to motion updates.


The ShinyView exposes several properties to customize the radial gradient used to create the shiny effect:

var colors: [UIColor] // The color of each gradient stop.
var locations: [CGFloat]? // The location of each gradient stop. The default is `nil`.
var scale: CGFloat // The scale factor of the gradient. The default is `2.0`.


Shiny is available via CocoaPods and Carthage.


To install with CocoaPods, simply add this in your Podfile:

pod "Shiny"


To install with Carthage, simply add this in your Cartfile:
