I’ve mentioned a few expanding text entry components that sit atop the keyboard like in the messages app, most recently RDRStickyKeyboardView.

Here’s an open source component for creating expanding text input views that sits atop the keyboard with a number of nice extra features called SlackTextViewController from Slack.

SlackTextViews feature list includes:

Autocomplete using a prefix key
Customizable with left and right button, and toolbar outlets
Line count support
Localisation support
A user is typing indicator

An example project is included, and SlackTextViewController is used in Slack’s iOS app.

This animation from the readme shows SlackTextViewController in action:

You can find SlackTextViewController on Github here.

A very nice expanding text input view.
