Draw things with PaintCode...
Design controls, icons and other graphic elements with PaintCode’s easy-to-use vector drawing tools.
...or import SVG and PSD files
Already have some vector images? Then there’s no need to start from scratch.
PaintCode turns your drawings into code
Watch PaintCode generate Objective-C, Swift or C# Xamarin code from your drawings in real time.
Use the code in your apps
The generated code is clean and readable. You can copy it into your project or use StyleKits.
Resolution independence & other benefits
No more @2x resources. Future proof. Creating dynamic, parametric drawings is easy.
What is StyleKit?
StyleKit is a special Objective-C, Swift or C# class - all your PaintCode design assets in a single package.
Export StyleKit class from PaintCode
StyleKit includes all your drawings, colors, gradients, shadows, icons and images.
Use StyleKit in Xcode
StyleKit class has a convenient API to access all the assets you have made in PaintCode.
Super easy integration
You don't even need to look at the generated StyleKit code. No manual tweaks required.
UI design changes now take seconds
By re-exporting the StyleKit from PaintCode, you can instantly change the appearance of your app.
Read our comprehensive documentation or watch a video tutorial to learn everything about StyleKits.
Create parametric drawings
Use variables to define the position, rotation, visibility and other attributes of your shapes.
LargerAngle = -2 × Angle
Use mathematical expressions to define the relationships between variables.
Drawing method with parameters
Export your drawings as Objective-C, Swift or C# methods with parameters. Bring your drawings to life.
Read our comprehensive documentation or watch a video tutorial to learn everything about Variables.
Draw something on a canvas
Anything you want to reuse many times across your document. An icon, button, slider or other UI control.
Reuse your drawing as a Symbol
Canvases can be easily reused on other canvases as Symbols. They are kept in sync with the original canvas. To learn more, read our documentation.
Symbols are resizable and parametric
Use Dynamic Shapes to make your Symbols resizable. You can even make them parametric with Variables & Expressions.
Use built-in vector shapes to draw stunning buttons, sliders, icons and other user interface elements.
Generates Objective-C drawing code in real time. Watch it change and grow. Also supports Swift and C# Xamarin.iOS.
Derive new colors, gradients and shadows from existing colors. Use the same color multiple times across your document.
Define how your complex drawings should behave when resized. Draw a resizable button and get a drawing code that can draw the same button to any size.
Import layer graphics, paths, texts and groups from Adobe Photoshop documents. You can also import SVG documents.
Enjoy crisp and sharp drawings, thanks to our smart guides. Perfectly align and position your shapes.
