MCMHeaderAnimated allows you to add an animation between list and detail views.

Demo MCMHeaderAnimated

Note: The sample code design was inspired by Tryolabs Mobile Showcase


First, import MCMHeaderAnimated:

import MCMHeaderAnimated

Create a new instance of MCMHeaderAnimated in the list controller, like this:

private let transitionManager = MCMHeaderAnimated()

then, assign that to the transitioningDelegate property of the destination controller:

destination.transitioningDelegate = self.transitionManager

and finally extend MCMHeaderAnimatedDelegate and implement headerView and headerCopy functions in both controllers.

If you want to add user interaction to dismiss detail view, like the example, you can add the following line:

self.transitionManager.destinationViewController = destination


iOS 8.0+



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

$ pod try MCMHeaderAnimated
