License: MIT


MessengerKit is a drop-in UI for messenger interfaces on iOS built in Swift. Centred around a single UIViewController, MessengerKit is themeable to fit your needs and includes a number of powerful features:

  • UICollectionView based with pre-loading and caching of size calculation for bubbles.
  • Auto-growing input view.
  • Multiple included cell types: text, large-emoji, image, video.
  • Presentation of SFSafariViewController
  • Built-in, customisable themes.
  • A custom theming system to bring your own UICollectionViewCells, headers, footers, and input views.
  • Avatar support (currently only in the travamigos theme).

The framework was built for and is used in production at Travamigos.
