Yesterday I pointed out the StoryboardLint tool that helps to handle one of the major issues that occur when using the Xcode storyboards tool which is keeping your code properly in sync with your Storyboards to avoid borthersome runtime issues.
Another major issue that occurs with storyboards is when multiple developers are working on the same storyboards project, while you can split the project up into multiple storyboards you can’t create segues to connect scenes within different storyboards.
Here’s a library from Rob Brown that allows you to easily link up different storyboards from Rob Brown called RBStoryBoardLink. RBStoryboardLink allows you to create a segue-like connection between storyboards so you can link up one storyboard with another, and scenes within a storyboard (which are defined by creating a UIViewController representing the scene – a couple of examples are included.
To link up storyboards you simply need to choose the type of segue, supplying the storyboard name, and scene identifier in the identity inspector as custom attributes.
You can find RBStoryboardLink on Github here.
Thanks to Atomic Object for mentioning and submitting a story about RBStoryboardLink which can be found on their blog.
A nice library making it easier for multiple developers to work together on the same project using storyboards.
