Getting Started

To launch the Flaneur Image Picker:

#import FlaneurImagePicker

let imagePicker = FlaneurImagePickerController(userInfo: nil,
                                               sourcesDelegate: [],
                                               selectedImages: [])
imagePicker.delegate = self
self.present(imagePicker, animated: true, completion: nil)

See the provided example to get a default implementation of the FlaneurImagePickerControllerDelegate protocol.

Property List Keys

Depending on the image sources you intend to integrate, you will need to add values in your app's .plist file for the different sources:

<string>This application needs to access your camera</string>

<string>This application needs to access your photo library</string>




In order to configure the picker you can use the config object of the picker:

// Changes the cancel button's title
imagePicker.config.cancelButtonTitle = "Cancel"

// Changes the done button's color
imagePicker.config.doneButtonColor = .brown

// Changes the order of the sections
 imagePicker.config.sectionsOrderArray = [.imageSources, .pickerView, .selectedImages]

// Changes the title for the one or more imageSources
imagePicker.config.titleForImageSource = [.instagram: "Insta."]

// Changes height for one or more sections
imagePicker.config.heightForSection = [.selectedImages: Int(UIScreen.main.bounds.height / CGFloat(3)), .imageSources: 50]

// You can find all the possible configurations in the documentation
// as well as an example in the Example directory of the repo

Instagram Support

To configure instagram, you need to go on the instagram developer website

  • Create an account
  • Go to the tab "Manage Clients"
  • Register a New Client
  • Fill the information
  • Go back to the tab "Manage Client"
  • Click on the button "Manage"
  • Go to the tab "Security"
  • Uncheck "Disable implicit OAuth"
  • Enter a valid redirect URIs (the redirect URI that you choose doesn't really matter as long as it's an https address, you could use https://google.com for example)
  • Copy the redirectURI in your .plist file (as explained here)
  • Copy the ClientID in your .plist file as explained here)

When you create an account, you are in sandbox mode which means that you can only request the most 20 recents media of the user.

!!! Remember that media means PHOTOS AND VIDEOS, so if you only see 10 photos appearing in the picker, it means either that you only have 10 photos or that the rest of your most recent medias are videos !!!

In oder to test the picker when you're in sandbox mode, you need to add the users as sandbox users, to do so:

  • Go to the tab "Sandbox"
  • Enter the username of the user
  • The user has to go to instagram developer website
  • Create a developer account
  • Go to Sandbox Invites
  • And accept your invitation
  • Then and ONLY THEN he can use the Picker

If you want to leave the Sandbox mode, you need to submit your app to instagram, read the documentation to do so: instagram developer website


You can find the documentation in the docs folder of the repository. The master version of the documentation is also available online.
