Twitter-like Profile viewController with very easy to use API

Video Demo


To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.


LFTwitterProfile is available through CocoaPods. To install
it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod "LFTwitterProfile"



Making your Twitter-like Profile viewController is as simple as extending TwitterProfileViewController

class MyProfileViewController: TwitterProfileViewController {
  /* ... overrides ... */


TwitterProfileViewController provides several handy APIs for customizing the interface:

function description
numberOfSegments() -> Int override to return the number of segments (tabs) to be shown
segmentTitle(forSegment index: Int) -> String override to return the title for segments shown in UISegmentedControl
prepareForLayout() override to setup scrollViews, tableViews, etc, before they are returned in scrollView(forSegment index: Int)
scrollView(forSegment index: Int) -> UIScrollView override to return UIScrollView (UITableView, UICollectionView, etc) in corresponding segment index
username: String user name displayed in profile header and navigation
profileImage: UIImage user icon
coverImage: UIImage cover image shown in sticky header
locationString: String location displayed under username
descriptionString: String content under location, dynamically sized, profileHeader will adjust it’s height by the content from descriptionString

UIScrollView, UITableView, UICollectionView, …

LFTwitterProfile allows you to use any child of UIScrollView, essentially any child that will provide with correct contentSize property, to be shown as a tab under UISegmentedControl.

Switching between tabs is as smooth as if the native Twitter iOS app, scrolling states are managed automatically.

override func prepareForLayout() {
  // TableViews should be initialized here
  let _tweetTableView = UITableView(frame:, style: .plain)
  self.tweetTableView = _tweetTableView

  let _photosTableView = UITableView(frame:, style: .plain)
  self.photosTableView = _photosTableView

  let _favoritesTableView = UITableView(frame:, style: .plain)
  self.favoritesTableView = _favoritesTableView

  self.setupTables() // setting up delegates and dataSources, register cells, etc....

override func scrollView(forSegment index: Int) -> UIScrollView {
  switch index {
  case 0:
    return tweetTableView
  case 1:
    return photosTableView
  case 2:
    return favoritesTableView
    return tweetTableView


  • More user interface customization
  • Better documentation
  • Renaming (right now is quite messy for pods and projects and classes, I changed my mind several times about the naming when working on this project)


  • Swift 3
  • Xcode 8
