CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects. To integrate TelegramColorPicker into your project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

pod 'TelegramColorPicker'

After that use pod install command in your terminal.


Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks. To integrate TelegramColorPicker into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "IrelDev/TelegramColorPicker"

After that use carthage update command in your terminal.

Swift Package Manager

The Swift Package Manager is a tool for automating the distribution of Swift code and is integrated into the swiftcompiler. To integrate TelegramColorPicker into your Xcode project using Swift Package Manager, specify it in you Package:

dependencies: [
    .package(url: "", .upToNextMinor(from: "1.3.0"))


If you prefer not to use any dependency managers, you can integrate TelegramColorPicker into your project manually by downloading the desired release and copying the Sources directory.


Sources downloaded directly from the master branch may be unstable, please download sources from releases page.



Create TelegramColorPicker instance then add it as a subview.

let frame = CGRect(x: .zero, y: .zero, width: 400, height: 250)
let colorPicker = TelegramColorPicker(frame: frame)


Drag UIView object from the object library and set TelegramColorPicker as a custom class in identity inspector. Create and connect @IBOutlet with TelegramColorPicker type.


Create struct that conforms to UIViewRepresentable protocol:

struct TelegramColorPickerRepresentable: UIViewRepresentable {
    func makeUIView(context: Context) -> TelegramColorPicker {
    func updateUIView(_ uiView: TelegramColorPicker, context: Context) { }

use it in your View:

var body: some View {
        .frame(width: 400, height: 250, alignment: .center)

Get color update

Use getColorUpdate function with your custom closure and don’t forget to use [weak self] to avoid strong reference cycle.

getColorUpdate { [weak self] (_, color) in
           guard let newColor = color.newValue, let hexadecimalColor = newColor.toHex() else { return }
           self?.textLabel.text = hexadecimalColor


This repository contains example where you can see how TelegramColorPicker can be used for QRCode foreground color changing.
