Using UILayoutBuilder, make it easy to see constraints with view hierarchy.
In addition, you can find a constraint method easily by auto-completion with first one or two charactors.

auto-completion

You can replace:

view.addSubview(subview)
subview.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
NSLayoutConstraint.activate([
    subview.topAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.safeAreaLayoutGuide.topAnchor, constant: 10),
    subview.leadingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.leadingAnchor, constant: 10),
    subview.bottomAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.safeAreaLayoutGuide.bottomAnchor, constant: -10),
    subview.trailingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.trailingAnchor, constant: -10),
])

to

view.ulb.add.subview(subview) { view, subview in
    subview.top.equalTo.top(view.safeAreaLayoutGuide).constant(10)
    subview.leading.equalTo.leading(view).constant(10)
    subview.bottom.equalTo.bottom(view.safeAreaLayoutGuide).constant(-10)
    subview.trailing.equalTo.trailing(view).constant(-10)
}

Usage

Start with ulb.add.subview, receives proxy of superview and subview. Call proxy.add.subview, receives proxy of subviews only.
You can constrain for AutoLayout using them.

view.ulb.add.subview(grayview) { view, grayview in
    grayview.edges.equalTo.edges(view.safeAreaLayoutGuide).constant(10)

    grayview.add.subview(greenview, whiteview) { greenview, whiteview in
        greenview.size.equalTo.constant(width: 100, height: 100)
        greenview.center.equalTo.center(view).constant(x: -50, y: 0)
        whiteview.leading.equalTo.trailing(greenview)
        whiteview.top.equalTo.top(greenview)
        whiteview.size.equalTo.size(greenview)
    }
}

For every view added by ulb.add.subview or proxy.add.subview will automatically set its translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints property to false.

Axis

subview.top.equalTo.top(view).constant(10)
// subview.topAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.topAnchor, constant: 10)

subview.top.greaterThanOrEqualTo.top(view).constant(10)
// subview.topAnchor.constraint(greaterThanOrEqualTo: view.topAnchor, constant: 10)

subview.top.lessThanOrEqualTo.top(view).constant(10)
// subview.topAnchor.constraint(lessThanOrEqualTo: view.topAnchor, constant: 10)

subview.center.equalTo.center(view).constant(x: 100, y: 100)
// subview.centerXAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.centerXAnchor, constant: 50)
// subview.centerYAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.centerYAnchor, constant: -50)

subview.horizontal.equalTo.horizontal(view).constant(leading: 10, trailing: -10)
// subview.leadingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.leadingAnchor, constant: 10)
// subview.trailingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.trailingAnchor, constant: -10)

subview.vertical.equalTo.vertical(view).constant(top: 10, bottom: -10)
// subview.topAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.topAnchor, constant: 10)
// subview.bottomAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.bottomAnchor, constant: -10)

subview.edges.equalTo.edges(view).constant(10)
// or
subview.edges.equalTo.edges(view).constant(top: 10, leading: 10, bottom: -10, trailing: -10)
// subview.topAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.topAnchor, constant: 10)
// subview.leadingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.leadingAnchor, constant: 10)
// subview.bottomAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.bottomAnchor, constant: -10)
// subview.trailingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.trailingAnchor, constant: -10)

Dimension

subview.height.equalTo.height(view)
// subview.heightAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.heightAnchor)

subview.width.equalTo.width(view).multiplier(0.5).constant(100)
// subview.widthAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.widthAnchor, multiplier: 0.5, constant: 100)

subview.height.equalTo.constant(100)
// subview.heightAnchor.constraint(equalToConstant: 100)

subview.size.equalTo.size(view)
// subview.heightAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.heightAnchor)
// subview.widthAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.widthAnchor)

subview.size.equalTo.constant(width: 100, height: 100)
// subview.heightAnchor.constraint(equalToConstant: 100)
// subview.widthAnchor.constraint(equalToConstant: 100)

Priority

subview.width.equalTo.width(view).priority(.required)
// subview.widthAnchor.constraint(equalTo: view.widthAnchor).priority = .required
