I’ve mentioned some excellent open source projects from Yalantis including a component for great looking scrolling iconized top menus, an iconized side menu component with slick animations, a great example of a pull-to-refresh implementation with an expanding animation.
Here’s an open source component submitted by Nikita of Yalantis that provides a custom label allowing you to easily apply animations to the text, and even individual layers within the label.
Earlier this month I mentioned a nice Xcode plugin that adds an action bar you can bring up with a hotkey providing easy access to nearly every Xcode action.
Here’s an Xcode plugin called CATweakerSense from Xu Lian that provides a nice interface directly within Xcode so you can visually set your CAMediaTimingFunction animation timing curve.
CATweakerSense will pop up its interface for tweaking directly within your code within a popover while editing CAMediaTimingFunction control points.
I’ve mentioned a number of color helper libraries most recently a library providing colors for creating gradients, and a library for grabbing flat colors based on an image.
Here’s a UIColor extension library submitted by Reid Gravelle called Rainbow that makes a large number of colors usable by name.
Rainbow contains over 1200 colors including many crayola colors and a helper to make the RGB values more readable by not requiring division by 255.
Earlier this month I mentioned a nice library providing a great customizable UI for working with the camera.
Here’s an open source component for working with photos providing an interface inspired by iOS 8’s Photos app called PhotoTweaks from itouch2.
PhotoTweaks provides an interface for cropping, moving, rotating, and scaling images that can easily be dropped into an app with methods for easily grabbing the modified image.
Earlier this month I mentioned a library from Aaron Abentheur for creating user interfaces using gesture detection on the camera feed.
Here’s another interesting library submitted by Aaron for making apps a little more polished called AAWIndow providing a UIWindow subclass that allows for detection when a user opens control center, and provides adaptive rounded corners.
