This is a list of 10 great IOS libraries I discovered in first months of 2017.
I used in my Swift projects, so you may wish to try.


Hydra is full-featured lightweight library which allows you to write better async code in Swift 3+.


Normally a UICollectionView has no transition effects when you scroll from one item to another. There are lots of ways to write animations for UICollectionView, but using a UICollectionViewLayout subclass is by far the simplest one. And it doesn't break any of your existing code. You can still use your UICollectionView subclass and you don't need to change your UICollectionViewCell. Just plug and enjoy.


ESTabBarController is a highly customizable TabBarController component, which is inherited from UITabBarController.


Lottie is a mobile library for Android and iOS that parses Adobe After Effects animations exported as json with bodymovinand renders the vector animations natively on mobile and through React Native!


Hero is a library for building iOS view controller transitions. It provides a layer on top of the UIKit’s cumbersome transition APIs. Making custom transitions an easy task for developers.


Tiny Constraints is the syntactic sugar that makes Auto Layout sweeter for human use.


Beautiful charts for iOS/tvOS/OSX! The Apple side of the crossplatform MPAndroidChart.


Swipeable UITableViewCell based on the stock Mail.app, implemented in Swift.


A library that displays spherical or cylindrical panoramas with touch or motion based controls.


PanelKit is a UI framework that enables panels on iOS


The eligible dropdown menu, written in Swift 3, appears dropdown menu to display a view of related items when a user click on the dropdown menu. You can customize dropdown view whatever you like (e.g. UITableView, UICollectionView… etc)


The Unofficial Swift Apple Calendar Library. View. Control. for iOS & tvOS
