About IGLabel

The IGLabel is a rich text label that works similarly to the generic UILabel and applies styles to text in a similar fashion that is done when using attributed strings. It is based on Core Text to boost performance and functionality over the generic UILabel.

Attributes are used to decorate the displayed text using an NSRange or a regular expression search string through these two methods; addAttributes:range:, and addAttributes:forRegEx:error:. Attributes allow you to adjust these text characteristics; bold appearance, font used, text foreground color, italic appearance, kern spacing, text stroke color and width, interaction of text through tap, and underline appearance and color.

Text variables are added by using the addTextVariable:value: method and are used to allow for the usage of dynamic text values. When the text property changes and text variables were defined, they are automatically updated with the configured value.
