TODocumentPickerViewController is an open source UIViewController framework that takes a list of files as input, and displays a navigable file system on iOS devices.

The goal of this project is to provide a completely generic, modular frontend UI for a variety of file services, both online, and locally. With services like Dropbox and Google Drive exposing their file systems via a REST API, and more low-level protocols like SMB and FTP requiring direct object serialisation, TODocumentPickerViewController is being engineered in such a way that any file source can be integrated.


  • Uses a delegate / data source model in order to integrate with any file source.
  • Can be configured using a configuration object passed to it upon init.
  • Self-replicates as users drill down folders, keeping configuration consistent between copies.
  • Data source provides an asynchronous mechanism to allow long lasting requests (like REST APIs) to not block the main thread.
