Wrappers around UITableView and UICollectionView to make simpler to use. It also provides a custom grouped tableview that is twitter bootstrapped inspired. DCCollectionViewLayout provides dynamic/variable sized cell support. OS X version can be found here

Dependencies

Requires Quartz framework.

TableView Example

//first create a tableSource datasource manager
DCTableSource *tableSource = [[DCTableSource alloc] init];
tableSource.delegate = self;
//next create a tableview and assign it's delegate and datasource to the manager
self.tableView = [[UITableView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0, 0, self.view.frame.size.width, self.view.frame.size.height) style:UITableViewStyleGrouped]; // UITableViewStyleGrouped
self.tableView.delegate = tableSource;
self.tableView.dataSource = tableSource;
self.tableView.backgroundView = nil;
self.tableView.backgroundColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:245/255.0f green:245/255.0f blue:245/255.0f alpha:1];//[UIColor whiteColor];
self.tableView.separatorStyle = UITableViewCellSeparatorStyleNone;

yourObject* object = [[yourObject alloc] init]; //your custom objects, can be any kind of object
object.text = @"Hello World!";
[tableSource.items addObject:object];

//then implement this delegate to map the object to cell associates.
-(Class)classForObject:(id)object
{
    if([object isKindOfClass:[yourobject class]])
        return [MessageCell class];
    return nil;
}

//then in your MessageCell.m class (which is a subclass of DCTableViewCell provided):

+(CGFloat)tableView:(UITableView*)tableView rowHeightForObject:(id)object
{
    return 44; //the normal UITableViewCell
}

-(id)initWithStyle:(UITableViewCellStyle)style reuseIdentifier:(NSString *)reuseIdentifier
{
    if(self = [super initWithStyle:style reuseIdentifier:reuseIdentifier])
    {
        //the usual UITableViewCell init method
        self.textLabel.textColor = [UIColor greenColor]; //just an example
        return self;
    }
}

-(void)layoutSubviews
{
    [super layoutSubviews];
    //layout your subviews as you normally would
}
-(void)setObject:(id)object
{
    [super setObject:object];
    //example of using your custom object to set the textLabel of UITableViewCell
    yourObject* item = object;
    self.textLabel.text = item.text; //this would be "Hello World!" as the example above
    //the rest of your your custom logic here
}

CollectionView Example

DCCollectionSource *dataSource = [[DCCollectionSource alloc] init];
dataSource.delegate = self;
DCCollectionViewLayout *layout = [[DCCollectionViewLayout alloc] initWithDataSource:dataSource];
layout.enabledSpring = YES;
layout.horizontalSpacing = 0;
self.collectionView = [[UICollectionView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0, 0, self.view.frame.size.width, self.view.frame.size.height) collectionViewLayout:layout];
self.collectionView.delegate = self.dataSource;
self.collectionView.dataSource = self.dataSource;
[self.collectionView registerClass:[UICollectionViewCell class] forCellWithReuseIdentifier:CellIdentifier];
self.collectionView.backgroundColor = [UIColor whiteColor];
[self.view addSubview:self.collectionView];

yourObject* object = [[yourObject alloc] init]; //your custom objects, can be any kind of object
object.text = @"Hello World!";
[dataSource.items addObject:object];

//then implement this delegate to map the object to cell associates.
-(Class)classForObject:(id)object
{
    if([object isKindOfClass:[yourobject class]])
        return [MessageCell class];
    return nil;
}

//then in your MessageCell.m class (which is a subclass of DCCollectionViewCell provided):

+(CGSize)collectionView:(UICollectionView*)collectionView sizeForObject:(id)object
{
    return CGSizeMake(collectionView.frame.size.width, 88);//CGSizeMake(56.7, 56.7);
}

-(void)layoutSubviews
{
    [super layoutSubviews];
    //layout your subviews as you normally would
} 
-(void)setObject:(id)object
{
    [super setObject:object];
    yourObject* item = object;
    //the rest of your your custom logic here
}

Requirements

This framework requires at least iOS 5 above.

Install

The recommended approach for installing DCDataViews is via the CocoaPods package manager, as it provides flexible dependency management and dead simple installation.

via CocoaPods

Install CocoaPods if not already available:

$ [sudo] gem install cocoapods
$ pod setup

Change to the directory of your Xcode project, and Create and Edit your Podfile and add DCDataViews:

$ cd /path/to/MyProject
$ touch Podfile
$ edit Podfile
platform :ios, '5.0' 
pod 'DCDataViews'

Install into your project:

$ pod install

Open your project in Xcode from the .xcworkspace file (not the usual project file)

TODO

  • Need to support horizontal scrolling in DCCollectionViewLayout.
  • Need to support sections in CollectionView.
