Installation

CocoaPods

    platform :ios, '8.0'
    use_frameworks!
    pod 'Ubergang'

Setup

    UTweenSetup.instance.enableLogging(true)
    UTweenSetup.instance.enableLogging(true, withLogger: loggerProxy)

Ubergang provides some logs for basic operations like start, stop, pause, …
There is a dependency to XCGLogger which is used by default, but you can pass any Logger you prefer by creating a custom logger proxy implementing UTweenLoggable.

Tween Configuration

    .options(.repeat(n))
    .options(.yoyo)
    .options(.repeat(n), .yoyo)

Using options you can let the Tween repeat n (Int) times, let it yoyo or combine both options.

  • Repeat will restart the Tween n times where repeatCycleChange will be called with every cycle.
  • Yoyo will reverse the Tween after it reaches the end value.
    .reference(.strong)` //(default)
    .reference(.weak)

reference determines how to handle the reference count for the tween. Ubergang will increase the retain count if the option is set to .strong or won’t increase it if it’s set to .weak. These two rules are valid for most cases:

  • The Tween is not stored in a field variable -> .strong
  • The Tween is stored in a field variable -> .weak

Usage

Start a simple numeric Tween (Double)

    0.tween(to:10).update({ (value:Int) in print("(value)") }).start()

This Tween goes from 0 to 10 over 0.5 by default seconds using a linear easing by default. The current value will be printed with every update.

‘to’ and ‘from’ using closures

    NumericTween(id: "doubleTween")
            .from({ [unowned self] in return self.position2.x }, to: { [unowned self] in return self.position1.x })
            .update({ value, progress in print("update: (value), progress: (progress) ") })
            .duration(5)
            .start()

Passing closures to ‘to’ and ‘from’ will always compute all results using the current values returned by the closures.

Start a weak numeric Tween (Int)

    var tween: NumericTween<Int>?

    func run() {
        tween = 0.tween(to: 10)
            .id("intTween")
            .duration(5)
            .update({ value in print("update: (value)") })
            .ease(Elastic.easeOut)
            .reference(.weak)
            .start()
    }

This Tween with id ‘intTween’ goes from 0 to 10 over 5 seconds using an elastic easing. The current value will be printed with every update.
.reference(.weak) will store this tween weakly, Ubergang won’t increment the reference count. It’s up to you to keep the Tween alive.

Start a numeric Tween repeating 5 times with yoyo

    var tween: NumericTween<Int>?

    func run() {

        tween = 0.tween(to: 10)
            .id("intTween")
            .duration(5)
            .update({ value in print("update: (value)") })
            .ease(Elastic.easeOut)
            .reference(.weak)
            .options(.repeat(5), .yoyo)
            .start()
    }

Start a weak numeric Tween (CGAffineTransform)

    @IBOutlet var testView: UIView!
    var tween: TransformTween?

    func run() {
        //declare the target values
        var to = testView.transform
        to.ty = 200.0

        tween = testView.transform.tween(to: transform)
            .id("testView")
            .duration(2.5)
            .reference(.weak)
            .update({ [unowned self] value in self.testView.transform = value })
            .start()
    }

This Tween with id ‘testView’ tweens a transform over 2.5 seconds. The resulting tranform will be assigned to the testView with every update ‘welf.testView.transform = value’.

Start a Timeline containing three Tweens

    var timeline: UTimeline = UTimeline(id: "timeline")

    func run() {
        timeline.options(.yoyo).reference(.weak)

        timeline.append(
            0.tween(to: 10).id("intTween").duration(5).update({ value, _ in print("0-10 value: (value)") })
        )

        timeline.append(
            0.0.tween(to: 10.0).id("floatTween1").duration(5).update({ value, _ in print("0.0-10.0 value: (value)") })
        )

        timeline.insert(
            10.0.tween(to: 0.0).id("floatTween2").duration(5).update({ value, _ in print("10.0-0.0 value: (value)") }), at: 2.5
        )

        timeline.start()
    }

This Timeline controls one Tween starting at time 0.0 seconds, one Tween starting at time 5.0 seconds and the last one starting at 2.5 seconds. All Tweens are controlled by the timeline with the given options – In this case the tween option .yoyo

Tween along a UIBezierPath

    var tween: BezierPathTween!

    func run() {
    tween = BezierPathTween().along(path)
            .id("bezierTween")
            .duration(5)
            .ease(Linear.ease)
            .reference(.weak)
            .update({ [unowned self] (value: CGPoint, progress: Double) in
                //update
            })
            .start()
    }

Tween through points

    var tween: BezierPathTween!

    func run() {
        let points = [CGPoint]()
        points.append(...)

        tween = BezierPathTween().along(points)
            .id("bezierTween")
            .duration(5)
            .ease(Linear.ease)
            .reference(.weak)
            .update({ [unowned self] (value: CGPoint, progress: Double) in
                //update
            })
            .start()
    }    

Tween through points and use orientation to align the object on update

    var tween: BezierPathTween!

    func run() {
        let points = [CGPoint]()
        points.append(...)

        tween = BezierPathTween().along(points)
            .id("bezierTween")
            .duration(5)
            .ease(Linear.ease)
            .reference(.weak)
            .update({ [unowned self] (value:CGPoint, progress: Double, orientation: CGPoint) in
                self.targetView.center = value

                let angle = atan2(orientation.y, orientation.x)
                let transform = CGAffineTransformRotate(CGAffineTransformIdentity, angle)
                self.targetView.transform = transform
            })
            .start()
    }      

Changelog Verion 1.0

  • Swift 4 migration
  • Change tween creation pattern (UTweenBuilder removed – Instead instantiate the tween object directly or use the appropriate extension like 0.tween(to: 10))
  • Add @discardableResult to specific methods
  • Fix issue where timelines didn’t work if there was a delay between tweens
