README

TheAnimation

TheAnimation is Type-safe CAAnimation wrapper.

Introduction

For example, if you want to animate backgroundColor with CABasicAnimation, you need to consider type because fromValue property and so on are Any?.

[](./Images/background_raw.png)

If you use BasicAnimation of TheAnimation, you can animate backgroundColor without considering type! (AnimationKeyPaths.backgroundColor is AnimationKeyPath<CGColor> type.)

Usage

The way of making an animation is almost similar CAAnimation. But you need to use animation.animate(in:) method instead of using layer.add(_:forKey:).

let view = UIView()

let animation = BasicAnimation(keyPath: .opacity)
animation.fromValue = 0
animation.toValue   = 1
animation.duration  = 1
animation.animate(in: view)

animation.animate(in:) returns AnimaitonCanceller. You can cancel an animation with it.

let canceller = animation.animate(in: view)
canceller.cancelAnimation()

Example

To run the example project, clone the repo, and open Example directory.

Add new AnimationKeyPath

You can add AnimationKeyPath like this.

extension AnimationKeyPaths {
    static let newKeyPath = AnimationKeyPath<CGFloat>(keyPath: "abcd")
}

Handle animation did Start / Stop

You can handle animation did Start with func setAnimationDidStart(handler:). In addition, you can handle animation did Stop with func setAnimationDidStop(handler:).

let view = UIView()

let animation = BasicAnimation(keyPath: .opacity)
animation.fromValue = 0
animation.toValue   = 1
animation.duration  = 1

animation.setAnimationDidStart {
    // do something
}

animation.setAnimationDidStop { finished in
    // do something
}

animation.animate(in: view)
