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


  • via CocoaPods
    WEImageViewer is available through CocoaPods. To install
    it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:
pod 'WEImageViewer'

Supported Versions

  • iOS 10.0 or later



imageView.enableViewer(true, presentViewController: self.navigationController)
// Or
imageView.enableViewer(true) // Viewer will be presented by UIApplication.share.keyWindows.rootViewController
// Or
let imageBrowser = WEImageViewController(), senderView: imageView)

UITableViewController, UICollectionViewController

Step 1. Declare the viewer as property

let imageViewer = WEImageViewController()

Step 2. In table view delegate function func tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, cellForRowAt indexPath: IndexPath), setup image viewer controller for the cell’s image view

override func collectionView(_ collectionView: UICollectionView, cellForItemAt indexPath: IndexPath) -> UICollectionViewCell {
    let cell = collectionView.dequeueReusableCell(withReuseIdentifier: reuseIdentifier, for: indexPath) as! DemoCollectionViewCell
    // Configure the cell
    cell.coverImageView.imageViewerController = imageViewer
    return cell

Step 3. Adopt WEImageViewerDataSource, WEImageViewerDelegate

func numberOfImageInViewer() -> Int {
    return objects.count

func imageViewAtIndex(_ imageViewer: WEImageViewController, index: Int) -> UIImageView? {
    let indexPath = IndexPath(row: index, section: 0)
    if let cell = tableView.cellForRow(at: indexPath) {
        return cell.contentView.viewWithTag(101) as? UIImageView
    return nil

func frameInWindowForItemAtIndex(_ imageViewer: WEImageViewController, index: Int) -> CGRect {
    let indexPath = IndexPath(row: index, section: 0)
    let rect = tableView.rectForRow(at: indexPath)
    return tableView.convert(rect, to: nil)

// Scroll to the cell has an image will be showing on viewer to make sure the dismissal animation will work correctly when user close viewer
func imageViewer(_ imageViewer: WEImageViewController, willShowAt index: Int) {
    //This is my sample code, you can do some more to make it better
    let indexPath = IndexPath(row: index, section: 0)
    if let visibleIndexes = tableView.indexPathsForVisibleRows, !visibleIndexes.contains(indexPath) {
        tableView.scrollToRow(at: indexPath, at: .middle, animated: false)


Attribute for drawing Value Description
imagesDataSource WEImageViewerDataSource The data source provides the image viewer controller object with the information it needs to construct and modify a viewer.
delegate WEImageViewerDelegate The delegate must adopt the WEImageViewerDelegate protocol. Optional methods of the protocol allow the delegate to manage some actions in viewer controller.
rootViewController UIViewController The controller will present the image viewer controller. The viewer would be presneted by keyWindow if rootViewController is nil
selectedIndex Int Index of current showing image in the viewer
