A amazing and highly customized tabBarController! You could almost customize 100% of the properties with LCTabBarController! 😍 ✨


In me the tiger sniffs the rose.


Welcome to my blog:

⚠️ FOR LanMeng Tec. ONLY! You could use LCTabBarController if you need.



  • Highly decoupled!

    Each control is a independent class! --> means "be possessed":

    LCTabBarBadge –> LCTabBarItem –> LCTabBar –> LCTabBarController

  • Simple integration!

    Integration takes only one step: Just replace the UITabBarController word in your AppDelegate.m with LCTabBarController to complete the integration!

  • Non-Pollution!

    LCTabBarController has all the functions of UITabBarController, and NO any intrusion behavior!

    So, even if your project is complete, you could integrated at any time! You could also change back to UITabBarController! (But I 200% believe you won’t do it!)

  • Highly customized!

    You can freely set the following properties, you can also choose to modify the code directly!

    1. tabBar title color

    2. tabbar title font

    3. tabbar image ratio

    4. tabbar badge frame

    5. tabbar badge font

  • If you feel good, please give me a star, thank you very much! ⭐️

    I will keep update with new Issue, if you want to know my progress at any time, please click on the watch button in the upper right corner!


LCTabBarController is available on CocoaPods. Just add the following to your project Podfile:

pod "LCTabBarControllerForLM"    # Podfile

Non-CocoaPods Installation

Just drag the LCTabBarController folder into your project.


  • Inside your AppDelegate.m:

    // 0. Import header file
    #import "LCTabBarController.h"
    // 1. If you have already started the project, even if it's already done.
    UITabBarController *tabBarC = [[UITabBarController alloc] init];
    LCTabBarController *tabBarC = [[LCTabBarController alloc] init];
    // 2. If you're just starting to write a new project
    - (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {
      self.window = [[UIWindow alloc] initWithFrame:[UIScreen mainScreen].bounds];
      [self.window makeKeyAndVisible];
      // Other code
      HomeVC *vc1 = [[HomeVC alloc] init];
      vc1.view.backgroundColor = [UIColor whiteColor];
      vc1.tabBarItem.badgeValue = @"23";
      vc1.title = @"Home";
      vc1.tabBarItem.image = [UIImage imageNamed:@"tabbar_home"];
      vc1.tabBarItem.selectedImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"tabbar_home_selected"];
      // vc2 vc3 ...
      UIViewController *vc4 = [[UIViewController alloc] init];
      vc4.view.backgroundColor = [UIColor yellowColor];
      vc4.tabBarItem.badgeValue = @"99+";
      vc4.title = @"Profile";
      vc4.tabBarItem.image = [UIImage imageNamed:@"tabbar_profile"];
      vc4.tabBarItem.selectedImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"tabbar_profile_selected"];
      UINavigationController *navC1 = [[UINavigationController alloc] initWithRootViewController:vc1];
      UINavigationController *navC2 = [[UINavigationController alloc] initWithRootViewController:vc2];
      UINavigationController *navC3 = [[UINavigationController alloc] initWithRootViewController:vc3];
      UINavigationController *navC4 = [[UINavigationController alloc] initWithRootViewController:vc4];
      /**************************************** Key Code ****************************************/
      LCTabBarController *tabBarC = [[LCTabBarController alloc] init];
      tabBarC.viewControllers = @[navC1, navC2, navC3, navC4];
      self.window.rootViewController = tabBarC;
      return YES;
  • Done!

  • You could change the following properties in LCTabBarCONST.h/.m, other more attributes can be directly read code changes!

    #define LC_TABBAR_ITEM_TITLE_COLOR      // tabBar title color
    #define LC_TABBAR_ITEM_TITLE_COLOR_SEL  // tabBar title color (selected)
    const CGFloat LCTabBarItemImageRatio     = 0.70f;   // tabBar image ratio
    const CGFloat LCTabBarItemTitleFontSize  = 10.0f;   // tabBar title font size
    const CGFloat LCTabBarBadgeTitleFontSize = 11.0f;   // tabBar badge title font size
