Pageboy 2.5.1


CocoaPods Platforms

TL;DR UIPageViewController done properly.

Pageboy is a simple, highly informative page view controller.

⭐️ Features

  • Simplified data source management.
  • Enhanced delegation; featuring exact relative positional data and reliable updates.
  • Infinite scrolling support.
  • Automatic timer-based page transitioning.
  • Support for custom page transitions.

📋 Requirements

Pageboy requires iOS 9 / tvOS 10 or above; and is written in Swift 4.

📲 Installation


Pageboy is available through CocoaPods. To install it, simply add the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'Pageboy', '~> 2.0'

And run pod install.


Pageboy is available through Carthage. Simply install carthage with Homebrew using the following command:

$ brew update
$ brew install carthage

Add Pageboy to your Cartfile:

github "uias/Pageboy" ~> 2.0

🚀 Usage

Getting Started

  1. Create an instance of a PageboyViewController and provide it with a PageboyViewControllerDataSource.
class PageViewController: PageboyViewController, PageboyViewControllerDataSource {

    override func viewDidLoad() {
	self.dataSource = self
  1. Implement the PageboyViewControllerDataSource functions.
func numberOfViewControllers(in pageboyViewController: PageboyViewController) -> Int {
    return viewControllers.count
func viewController(for pageboyViewController: PageboyViewController,
                    at index: PageboyViewController.PageIndex) -> UIViewController? {
    return viewControllers[index]
func defaultPage(for pageboyViewController: PageboyViewController) -> PageboyViewController.Page? {
    return nil
  1. Enjoy.


Unfortunately, UIPageViewController doesn't provide the most useful delegate methods for detecting positional data. PageboyViewControllerDelegate provides a number of functions for being able to detect where the page view controller is, and where it's headed.


The page view controller is about to embark on a transition to a new page.

func pageboyViewController(_ pageboyViewController: PageboyViewController,
                           willScrollToPageAt index: Int,
                           direction: PageboyViewController.NavigationDirection,
                           animated: Bool)


The page view controller was scrolled to a relative position along the way transitioning to a new page. Also provided is the direction of the transition.

func pageboyViewController(_ pageboyViewController: PageboyViewController,
                           didScrollTo position: CGPoint,
                           direction: PageboyViewController.NavigationDirection,
                           animated: Bool)


The page view controller has successfully completed a scroll transition to a page.

func pageboyViewController(_ pageboyViewController: PageboyViewController,
                           didScrollToPageAt index: Int,
                           direction: PageboyViewController.NavigationDirection,
                           animated: Bool)


The page view controller has reloaded its child view controllers.

func pageboyViewController(_ pageboyViewController: PageboyViewController,
                           didReloadWith currentViewController: UIViewController,
                           currentPageIndex: PageboyViewController.PageIndex)

⚡️ Extras

  • reloadPages() - Reload the view controllers in the page view controller. (Refreshes the data source).

  • scrollToPage() - Scroll the page view controller to a new page programatically.

     public func scrollToPage(_ pageIndex: PageIndex,
                                animated: Bool,
                                completion: PageTransitionCompletion? = nil)
  • .navigationOrientation - Whether to orientate the pages horizontally or vertically.

  • .isScrollEnabled - Whether or not scrolling is allowed on the page view controller.

  • .isInfiniteScrollEnabled - Whether the page view controller should infinitely scroll at the end of page ranges.

  • .currentViewController - The currently visible view controller if it exists.

  • .currentPosition - The exact current relative position of the page view controller.

  • .currentIndex - The index of the currently visible page.

  • .showsPageControl - Whether to show the built-in page control.

  • .parentPageboy - Access the parent PageboyViewController from any child UIViewController.

    class ChildViewController: UIViewController {
        func doSomething() {
            parentPageboy?.scrollToPage(.next, animated: true)


Pageboy also provides custom animated transition support. This can be customised via the .transition property on PageboyViewController.

pageboyViewController.transition = Transition(style: .push, duration: 1.0)

The following styles are available:

  • .push
  • .fade
  • .moveIn
  • .reveal

Note: By default this is set to nil, which uses the standard animation provided by UIPageViewController.

Auto Scrolling

PageboyAutoScroller is available to set up timer based automatic scrolling of the PageboyViewController:


Support for custom intermission duration and other scroll behaviors is also available.
