Swift version: 5.1

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

A CGAffineTransform value combines scale, translation and rotation all at once, but if you just want to know its rotation value is then use this code:

func rotation(from transform: CGAffineTransform) -> Double {
    return atan2(Double(transform.b), Double(transform.a))
}
