Bring life to CALayers with SpriteKit-like animation builders.

Why use Animo?

Because declaring CAAnimations (especially with CAAnimationGroups) is very verbose and tedious.

Animo turns this:

let positionAnimation = CABasicAnimation(keyPath: "position")
positionAnimation.fromValue = NSValue(CGPoint: fromPoint)
positionAnimation.toValue = NSValue(CGPoint: toPoint)

let colorAnimation = CABasicAnimation(keyPath: "backgroundColor")
colorAnimation.fromValue = fromColor.CGColor
colorAnimation.toValue = toColor.CGColor

let animationGroup = CAAnimationGroup()
animationGroup.animations = [positionAnimation, colorAnimation]
animationGroup.fillMode = kCAFillModeForwards
animationGroup.removedOnCompletion = false
animationGroup.timingFunction = CAMediaTimingFunction(name: kCAMediaTimingFunctionEaseInEaseOut)

someView.layer.addAnimation(animationGroup, forKey: "animationGroup")

to this:

someView.layer.runAnimation(
    Animo.group(
        Animo.move(from: fromPoint, to: toPoint, duration: 1),
        Animo.keyPath("backgroundColor", from: fromColor, to: toColor, duration: 1),
        timingMode: .EaseInOut,
        options: Options(fillMode: .Forwards)
    )
)

Feature List

  • All timing modes from http://easings.net/ are implemented.
  • Choose how to mix your animations with grouping utilities:
    • group(...)
    • sequence(...)
    • autoreverse(...)
    • wait(...)
    • replay(...) and replayForever(...)
  • No need to box native types and struct types in NSValues! Animo will do that for you for:
    • Int8
    • Int16
    • Int32
    • Int64
    • UInt8
    • UInt16
    • UInt32
    • UInt64
    • Int
    • UInt
    • CGFloat
    • Double
    • Float
    • CGPoint
    • CGSize
    • CGRect
    • CGAffineTransform
    • CGVector
    • CATransform3D
    • UIEdgeInsets
    • UIOffset
    • NSRange
  • No need to bother between CGColor and UIColor! Animo automatically converts the following types for you so you can just use UIKit objects all the time:
    • UIColorCGColor
    • UIImageUIImage
    • UIBezierPathCGPath
  • Don't bother type-casting M_PI anymore and just use Degrees-to-Radians (and vice-versa) extensions for CGFloat, Double, and Float!

Here's a slightly complex animation that showcases what else you can do with Animo:

someView.layer.runAnimation(
    Animo.sequence( // Runs a list of animations in sequence
        Animo.wait(1), // Waits for a certain interval before running the next animation
        Animo.replayForever( // Replays the animation endlessly
            Animo.sequence(
                Animo.move( // Moves the layer's position
                    by: CGPoint(x: 100, y: 200), // "by", "from", and "to" arguments are supported
                    duration: 2,
                    timingMode: .Spring(damping: 1) // simplistic spring function that doesn't rely on physics
                ),
                Animo.rotateDegrees( // Rotates the layer (degrees and radians variants are supported)
                    by: -180,
                    duration: 1,
                    timingMode: .EaseInOutBack
                ),
                Animo.autoreverse( // Auto-reverses the animation
                    Animo.keyPath(
                        "cornerRadius", // Any custom KVC key is supported as well!
                        to: 10,
                        duration: 1,
                        timingMode: .EaseInOutBack
                    )
                ),
                Animo.group( // Runs multiple animations together
                    Animo.scaleX(
                        by: 2,
                        duration: 1,
                        timingMode: .EaseInOutBack
                    ),
                    Animo.scaleY(
                        by: 0.5,
                        duration: 1,
                        timingMode: .EaseInOutBack
                    )
                ),
                Animo.wait(1),
                Animo.move(
                    by: CGPoint(x: -100, y: -200),
                    duration: 2,
                    timingMode: .EaseInOutBack
                ),
                Animo.rotateDegrees(
                    by: 180,
                    duration: 1,
                    timingMode: .EaseInOutBack
                ),
                Animo.group(
                    Animo.scaleX(
                        to: 1,
                        duration: 1,
                        timingMode: .EaseInOutBack
                    ),
                    Animo.scaleY(
                        to: 1,
                        duration: 1,
                        timingMode: .EaseInOutBack
                    )
