Is there any reason why UIViewControllerPreview and UIViewPreview takes generics? It looks it's fine to just use UIView and UIViewController for property type and closure return type.
And it seems @escaping is not necessary.

Hey, this is perfect!
Could we turn these two preview helpers into Swift Package so it would be easier to share them?

Thanks

@bielikb In this case, I think that copy-pasting offers the best form of code reuse, so I don't have any plans to release this as a Swift Package, CocoaPod, or the like. With that said, the license under which this code is licensed permits anyone to publish and distribute this code however they want.

I turned your solution into Swift Package here:

If there's anything missing, please let me know ;)

@bielikb Cool, thanks for sharing. Only real correction I'd offer is that my name is Mattt, not Matt Thompson.
