Classy vs SwiftUI: What are the differences?

Developers describe Classy as "Expressive, flexible, and powerful stylesheets for native iOS apps". Not CSS. Instead of trying to force UIKit to fit CSS syntax, properties, conventions and constructs. Classy is a stylesheet system built from the ground up to work in harmony with UIKit. It borrows the best ideas from CSS and introduces new syntax, conventions and constructs where appropriate. On the other hand, SwiftUI is detailed as "Build user interfaces across all Apple platforms with Swift". Provides views, controls, and layout structures for declaring your app's user interface. The framework provides event handlers for delivering taps, gestures, and other types of input to your app.

Classy and SwiftUI can be categorized as "Mobile UI Frameworks" tools.

Some of the features offered by Classy are:

  • Flexible, nestable syntax
  • Live Reload
  • target views through Object Class, View Hierarchy, Style Class

On the other hand, SwiftUI provides the following key features:

  • Declarative Syntax
  • Design Tools
  • Drag and drop

Classy is an open source tool with 780 GitHub stars and 86 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Classy's open source repository on GitHub.
