PagingKit provides customizable menu & content UI. It has more flexible layout and design than the other libraries.

What's this?

There are many libraries providing "Paging UI" which have menu and content area. They are convenient but not customizable because your app has to be made compatible with the libraries' layout and view components. When a UI desgin in your app doesn't fit the libraries, you need to fork them or find another one.

PagingKit has more flexible layout and design than the other libraries. You can construct "Menu" and "Content" UI, and they work together. That's all features this library provides. You can fit any design to your apps as you like.

Getting Started

There are some samples in this library.

https://github.com/kazuhiro4949/PagingKit/tree/master/iOS%20Sample/iOS%20Sample

You can fit PagingKit into your project as the samples do. Check out this repository and open the workspace.

PagingKit has two essential classes.

  • PagingMenuViewController
  • PagingContentViewController

PagingMenuViewController provides interactive menu for each content. PagingContentViewController provides the contents on a scrollview.

If you make a new project which contains PagingKit, follow the steps.

  1. Add PagingMenuViewController & PagingContentViewController
  2. Assign them to properties
  3. Create menu UI
  4. display data
  5. Synchronize Menu and Content view controllers

1. Add PagingMenuViewController & PagingContentViewController

First, add PagingMenuViewController & PagingContentViewController on container view with Stroyboard.

1. Put container views on Storyboard

Put container views on stroyboard for each the view controllers.

2. Change class names

input PagingMenuViewController on custom class setting.

input PagingContentViewController on custom class setting.

2. Assign them to properties

Assign them on code of the container view controller.

1. Declare properties for the view controllers

Declare properties in container view controller.

class ViewController: UIViewController {

    var menuViewController: PagingMenuViewController!
    var contentViewController: PagingContentViewController!

2. override prepare(segue:sender:) and assign the view controllers

Assigin view controllers to each the property on prepare(segue:sender:).

    override func prepare(for segue: UIStoryboardSegue, sender: Any?) {
        if let vc = segue.destination as? PagingMenuViewController {
            menuViewController = vc
        } else if let vc = segue.destination as? PagingContentViewController {
            contentViewController = vc
        }
    }

3. Build App

Change menu color.

Build and check the current state.

It shows a container view controller that has PagingMenuViewController and PagingContentViewController.

3. Create menu UI

Next, you needs to prepare the menu elements.

1. Inherite PagingMenuViewCell and create custom cell

PagingKit has PagingMenuViewCell. PagingMenuViewController uses it to construct each menu element.

import UIKit
import PagingKit

class MenuCell: PagingMenuViewCell {
    @IBOutlet weak var titleLabel: UILabel!
}

2. Inherite PagingFocusView and create custom view

PagingKit has PagingFocusView. PagingMenuViewController uses it to point the current focusted menu.

3. register the above views to PagingMenuViewController

class ViewController: UIViewController {

    var menuViewController: PagingMenuViewController!
    var contentViewController: PagingContentViewController!

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()

        menuViewController.register(nib: UINib(nibName: "MenuCell", bundle: nil), forCellWithReuseIdentifier: "MenuCell")
        menuViewController.registerFocusView(nib: UINib(nibName: "FocusView", bundle: nil))
    }

4. display data

Then, implement the data sources to display contents. They are a similar to UITableViewDataSource.

1. prepare data

class ViewController: UIViewController {
    static var viewController: (UIColor) -> UIViewController = { (color) in
       let vc = UIViewController()
        vc.view.backgroundColor = color
        return vc
    }

    var dataSource = [(menuTitle: "test1", vc: viewController(.red)), (menuTitle: "test2", vc: viewController(.blue)), (menuTitle: "test3", vc: viewController(.yellow))]

2. set menu data source

Return number of menus, menu widthes and PagingMenuViewCell objects.

    override func prepare(for segue: UIStoryboardSegue, sender: Any?) {
        if let vc = segue.destination as? PagingMenuViewController {
            menuViewController = vc
            menuViewController.dataSource = self // <- set menu data source
        } else if let vc = segue.destination as? PagingContentViewController {
            contentViewController = vc
        }
    }
}

extension ViewController: PagingMenuViewControllerDataSource {
    func numberOfItemsForMenuViewController(viewController: PagingMenuViewController) -> Int {
        return dataSource.count
    }

    func menuViewController(viewController: PagingMenuViewController, widthForItemAt index: Int) -> CGFloat {
        return 100
    }

    func menuViewController(viewController: PagingMenuViewController, cellForItemAt index: Int) -> PagingMenuViewCell {
        let cell = viewController.dequeueReusableCell(withReuseIdentifier: "MenuCell", for: index) as! MenuCell
        cell.titleLabel.text = dataSource[index].menuTitle
        return cell
    }
}

3. configure content data source

Return the number of contents and view controllers.

    override func prepare(for segue: UIStoryboardSegue, sender: Any?) {
        if let vc = segue.destination as? PagingMenuViewController {
            menuViewController = vc
            menuViewController.dataSource = self
        } else if let vc = segue.destination as? PagingContentViewController {
            contentViewController = vc
            contentViewController.dataSource = self // <- set content data source
        }
    }
}

extension ViewController: PagingContentViewControllerDataSource {
    func numberOfItemsForContentViewController(viewController: PagingContentViewController) -> Int {
        return dataSource.count
    }

    func contentViewController(viewController: PagingContentViewController, viewControllerAt index: Int) -> UIViewController {
        return dataSource[index].vc
    }
}

4. load UI

Call reloadData() methods with starting point.

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()
        //...
        //...
        menuViewController.reloadData()
        contentViewController.reloadData()
    }

Build and display data source.

5. Synchronize Menu and Content view controllers

Last, synchronize user interactions between Menu and Content.

1. set menu delegate

    override func prepare(for segue: UIStoryboardSegue, sender: Any?) {
        if let vc = segue.destination as? PagingMenuViewController {
            menuViewController = vc
            menuViewController.dataSource = self
            menuViewController.delegate = self // <- set menu delegate
        } else if let vc = segue.destination as? PagingContentViewController {
            contentViewController = vc
            contentViewController.dataSource = self
        }
    }
}

Implement menu delegate to handle the event. It is a similar to UITableViewDelegate. You need to implement scroll method of PagingContentViewController in the delegate method.


extension ViewController: PagingMenuViewControllerDelegate {
    func menuViewController(viewController: PagingMenuViewController, didSelect page: Int, previousPage: Int) {
        contentViewController.scroll(to: page, animated: true)
    }
}

2. set content delegate

    override func prepare(for segue: UIStoryboardSegue, sender: Any?) {
        if let vc = segue.destination as? PagingMenuViewController {
            menuViewController = vc
            menuViewController.dataSource = self
            menuViewController.delegate = self
        } else if let vc = segue.destination as? PagingContentViewController {
            contentViewController = vc
            contentViewController.dataSource = self
            contentViewController.delegate = self // <- set content delegate
        }
    }
}

Implement content delegate to handle the event. It is similar to UIScrollViewDelegate. You need to implement the scroll event of PagingMenuViewController. "percent" is distance from "index" argument to the right-side page index.

extension ViewController: PagingContentViewControllerDelegate {
    func contentViewController(viewController: PagingContentViewController, didManualScrollOn index: Int, percent: CGFloat) {
        menuViewController.scroll(index: index, percent: percent, animated: false)
    }
}

That's it.

Tips

Class Design

There are some design policy in this library.

  • The behavior needs to be specified by the library.
  • The layout should be left to developers.
  • Arrangement of the internal components must be left to developers.

Because of that, PagingKit has responsiblity for the behavior. But it doesn't specify a structure of the components. PagingKit favours composition over inheritance. This figure describes overview of the class diagram.

Work with RxSwift

PagingKit goes well with RxSwift.

https://github.com/kazuhiro4949/RxPagingKit

    let items = PublishSubject<[(menu: String, width: CGFloat, content: UIViewController)]>()

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()

        menuViewController?.register(type: TitleLabelMenuViewCell.self, forCellWithReuseIdentifier: "identifier")
        menuViewController?.registerFocusView(view: UnderlineFocusView())

        // PagingMenuViewControllerDataSource
        items.asObserver()
            .map { items in items.map({ ($0.menu, $0.width) }) }
            .bind(to: menuViewController.rx.items(
                cellIdentifier: "identifier",
                cellType: TitleLabelMenuViewCell.self)
            ) { _, model, cell in
                cell.titleLabel.text = model
            }
            .disposed(by: disposeBug)

        // PagingContentViewControllerDataSource
        items.asObserver()
            .map { items in items.map({ $0.content }) }
            .bind(to: contentViewController.rx.viewControllers())
            .disposed(by: disposeBug)

        // PagingMenuViewControllerDelegate
        menuViewController.rx.itemSelected.asObservable().subscribe(onNext: { [weak self] (page, prev) in
            self?.contentViewController.scroll(to: page, animated: true)
        }).disposed(by: disposeBug)

        // PagingContentViewControllerDelegate
        contentViewController.rx.didManualScroll.asObservable().subscribe(onNext: { [weak self] (index, percent) in
            self?.menuViewController.scroll(index: index, percent: percent, animated: false)
        }).disposed(by: disposeBug)
    }
