Introducing Dropdowns - Add dropdown to iOS app easily

I'm making a new framework, Dropdowns

Dropdowns provides the quickest way to present a dropdown in your app. It is very lightweight, just provide a list of items and the action closure you want to handle.

Dropdowns works by showing a child UIViewController as a dropdown from a TitleView. The most common use case is to show from a UINavigationController, in that sense, you can just create a list of items, and provide to TitleView.

let items = ["World", "Sports", "Culture", "Business", "Travel"]
let titleView = TitleView(navigationController: navigationController!, title: "Menu", items: items)
titleView?.action = { [weak self] index in
  print("select \(index)")

navigationItem.titleView = titleView

For customizations, Dropdowns uses TableController by default, to show list of items in a UITableView. We can customise to show anything you want by using contentController.

let contentController = TableController(items: items, initialIndex: 0)
let dropdown = DropdownController(contentController: contentController, navigationController: navigationController)
