Gradient along MKPolyLineView ( MKPolylineRenderer )

I’d like to apply a gradient on a polyline view depending on some conditions like speed.
I was able to subclass MKPolyLineRenderer to draw with custom stroke and fill, but only with the same color along the path.

I saw other similar questions like : Draw segments from a circle or donut or On OSX, how do I gradient fill a path stroke? , but it is not exactly what I’d want.
If I understand correctly, a path like below couldn’t be filled with these methods. At least not treated as a whole.

  • Core Data unsupported predicate with ALL and IN
  • How to get source code line from stack trace in obj-c / ios
  • How do I print text onto the game screen
  • Smart-search for Parse Usernames in Swift not working
  • Flip, Grow, and Translate Animation
  • Should I use Realm Objective-C or Realm Swift in my mixed Objective-C / Swift project?
  • enter image description here

    A very similar question is Gradient Polyline with MapKit ios. But it adds an overlay for each segment between the points, which I think isn’t too efficient.

    Is this the only possible way ? ( I’d need to draw hundreds or maybe thousands of these segments … ) How can this be achieved easily ?

    Thanks

    So the original answer is here https://stackoverflow.com/a/20159374/2606068

    you can find the demo here https://github.com/wdanxna/GradientPolyline

    and some improvement tips provided by @Templar is:

    • prepare the path directly in the init.
    • check also for CGRectContains, not only for intersection.

    thanks man! :p
