Open Source iOS Component For Creating Custom Tab Bars That Fold/Expand With Neat Animations

Last month I mentioned an open source component from Yalantis for creating sophisticated text animations called Ophiucus.

Here’s an open source component called FoldingTabBar submitted by Yalantis that allows you to easily create expanding tab bars.

FoldingTabBar includes a custom tab bar controller that expands when pressed on the button in the middle, includes a spot for two side buttons that automatically move out-of-the-way when the tab bar expands, and has a tab bar item component for image items.

This image from the readme shows FoldingTabBar in action:


You can find FoldingTabBar on Github here.

You can read more about FoldingTabBar on the Yalantis blog.

A nice custom tab bar component.
