ActionsList is an iOS framework for presenting actions lists similar to Apple’s Quick Actions menu. It presents and dismisses list with actions with animation from the source view.

It is the best replace for the Android’s floating action button in iOS if your app is following the iOS Design Guidelines.



  • Xcode 9.0 or later
  • iOS 9.0 or later
  • Swift 4.0


  • System-like look and feel:
  • actions order is reverted if list is displayed in top part of the screen;
  • feedback is generated on list opening and action highlight (if device supports any feedback; can be disabled);
  • blurred list background and background view (if device supports blur and "Reduce transparency" is off, otherwise dimmed view will be used; can be customized);
  • source view pulses on list opening;
  • Safe Areas supported;
  • Universal (iPhone & iPad);
  • Change orientation supported (not fully, see Known Issues);
  • Highly customizable:
  • no actions count limits (contained in scroll view);
  • list background color, action’s appearance and background view can be changed;

Known Issues

  • List created with UITabBarItem extension method does not support orientation changes:

Constraints to UITabBarItem do not work properly, so after orientation change sourceView and senderView will have different frames and content positions.

  • UIBarButtonItem‘s create list method is obsoleted since iOS 11:

In iOS 11 UIBarButtonItem created with image or title initializer has wrong content frame, so sourceView will be a bit offset. Instead, use init(customView:) to create UIBarButtonItem with UIButton and create list with this button. In iOS 10 or earlier issue is not present.

Demo Screenshot


// Importing framework
import ActionsList

// Save list model to a property or it will be deallocated and you will have no ability to control it outside of the scope list was created in
private var list: ActionsListModel? = nil

// Creating list in your method
private func method() {

    // For UIButton instance (must be in the view hierarchy)
    let list = uiButton.createActionsList() // Use createActionsList(withDelegate:) if needed

    // For UITabBarItem instance (must be in the view hierarchy)
    let list = uiTabBarItem.createActionsList() // Use createActionsList(withDelegate:) if needed

    // For UIBarButtonItem instance (must be in the view hierarchy)
    let list = uiBarButtonItem.createActionsList() // Use createActionsList(withColor:font:delegate:) if needed

    // For your custom view (must be in the view hierarchy)
    let list = ActionsListModel(senderView: viewThatEmittedListShowing, 
                                sourceView: copyOfSenderViewToShowAboveBackgroundView, 
                                delegate: actionsListDelegate)

    // Add actions to list in order to 
    list.add(action: ActionsListDefaultButtonModel(localizedTitle: "Create Alarm",
                                                   image: UIImage(named: "Alarm clock"),
                                                   action: { action in
                                                        // You can use action's list property to control it

                                                        // - To dismiss

                                                        // - To update action appearance
                                                        //     Do not forget to reload actions to apply changes

    // Present list

    // Do not forget to save list to the property
    self.list = list



To save system look and feel:

  • do not change any of the appearance properties or another settings;
  • do not add more than 4 actions to the list;
  • do not disable feedback;

To customize list background colors use ActionsListModel‘s appearance property or ActionsListAppearance.List.common to set default appearance.


To customize actions you can use ActionsListDefaultButtonModel‘s appearance property or ActionsListAppearance.Button.common to set default appearance.

Action can be disabled, you can control it via the ActionsListDefaultButtonModel‘s isEnabled property.

Actions generate feedback on highlight, to manage this see Feedback section.

Background View

To set custom background view use ActionsListBackgroundViewBuilder‘s type property.

Custom background view should implement ActionsListBackgroundView protocol

ActionsListBackgroundViewBuilder.instance.type = .custom(backgroundView: customBackgroundView)

To change default dimmed view dimming color use ActionsListAppearance.BackgroundView.common.dimmingColor


Taptic engine used on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus only.

Haptic feedback used on iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and later.

Other devices do not produce feedback.

To disable feedback generation use FeedbackGenerator.instance.isEnabled property. This property manages list opening and action highlight feedback.
