Installation

ContentLoader is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile and run pod install:

pod 'ContentLoader'

Then you can import it when you need

import ContentLoader

Usage

In the example you will see some custom content loaders that can be used in your project. Once you've installed the pod, follow next steps. It's really simple:

ContentLoader in your View

Select one of your custom view controllers. Choose the views inside this viewcontroller where would like to make Loadable and set isLoadable view property to true. Those views will convert to loadable objects when ContentLoader is loading. If you are using xibs / storyboards, you can see new editable Is Loadable property.

Using Table or Collection views?

If you are using Table or Collection views, you can make the same with your cells. Make Loadable the views you want. Then, you must implement ContentLoaderDataSource to complete some data ContentLoader needs to draw loader objects. It's really simple:

extension TableViewController: ContentLoaderDataSource {

    /// Number of sections you would like to show in loader
    func numSections(in contentLoaderView: UIView) -> Int {
        return 1
    }

    /// Number of rows you would like to show in loader
    func contentLoaderView(_ contentLoaderView: UIView, numberOfItemsInSection section: Int) -> Int {
        return 10
    }

    /// Cell reuse identifier you would like to use (ContenLoader will search loadable objects here!)
    func contentLoaderView(_ contentLoaderView: UIView, cellIdentifierForItemAt indexPath: IndexPath) -> String {
        return "MyCellReuseIdentifier"
    }
}

Format

You can format ContentLoader with your own parameters. See default values:

var format = ContentLoaderFormat()

/// Loader objects color
format.color = UIColor.lightGray

/// Loader objects corner radius
format.radius = 5

/// Loader animation type
format.animation = .fade

Start and Stop Loading

Simple ;)

view.startLoading()
// or
view.startLoading(format: format)
view.hideLoading()

In case of table or collection views

tableView.startLoading()
// or
tableView.startLoading(format: format)
tableView.hideLoading()

Animation Types

Fade

This type will make fade animation when content is loading

ContentLoaderAnimation.fade

Gradient

This type will make gradient animation when content is loading (coming soon)

ContentLoaderAnimation.gradient(UIColor, UIColor)

(Start color, End color)
