AHKBendableView alternatives and similar libraries

Based on the "Animation" category

Do you think we are missing an alternative of AHKBendableView or a related project?

Add another 'Animation' Library

README

AHKBendableView

CocoaPods

BendableView is a UIView subclass that bends its edges when its position change is animated. Internally, BendableView contains CAShapeLayer, which acts as its background. The layer's path changes during animations, creating an effect of bending. Subviews stay intact. You can find a more extensive description on my blog: Recreating Skype's Action Sheet Animation and Follow-Up Post.

Usage

BendableView contains three public properties:

var damping: CGFloat // set to animate the view's edges differently than the whole view (used in an internal spring animation)
var initialSpringVelocity: CGFloat // same as above
var fillColor: UIColor // "background" color of the bendable layer

You should set them before animating the position change of the view. I propose to use slightly lower values for damping and initialSpringVelocity than the values used when calling +animateWithDuration:delay:usingSpringWithDamping: initialSpringVelocity:options:animations:completion:, just like in this example:

let bv = BendableView(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: 100, height: 100))
view.addSubview(bv)

// bending setup
bv.fillColor = UIColor.redColor()
bv.damping = 0.7
bv.initialSpringVelocity = 0.8

UIView.animateWithDuration(0.5, delay: 0, usingSpringWithDamping: 0.9, initialSpringVelocity: 0.9, options: .BeginFromCurrentState | .AllowUserInteraction, animations: {
        bv.frame.origin = CGPoint(x: 200, y: 300)
        bv.frame.size = CGSize(width: 150, height: 150)
    }, completion: nil)

Have fun!
