branch: master
README.md

How To Get

1. Install dependency: Nimbus

If your project uses CocoaPods to manage its dependencies, easiest way to do it is to add the following in your Podfile:

pod 'Nimbus/Photos', :podspec => 'https://gist.github.com/exalted/7655606/raw/ce27220c457984ecd30fb800503b4c299159ace0/Nimbus.podspec'

2. Copy PTImageAlbumViewController directory into your own project

Instead of manually downloading files, you could use git submodules:

git submodule add https://github.com/exalted/PTImageAlbumViewController.git

3. #import headers

#import <Nimbus/NimbusCore.h>
#import <Nimbus/NimbusPhotos.h>

4. Build & run

If you have trouble, check out AlbumDemo project in Examples directory for a working example.

    • Size (width & height) for high–definition images
// YourAwesomeViewController.h

#import "PTImageAlbumViewController.h"

@interface YourAwesomeViewController : PTImageAlbumViewController

// ...

@end
// YourAwesomeViewController.m

#import "YourAwesomeViewController.h"

@implementation YourAwesomeViewController

//...

#pragma mark - PTImageAlbumViewDataSource

- (NSInteger)numberOfImagesInAlbumView:(PTImageAlbumView *)imageAlbumView {
    #warning missing implementation
}

- (NSString *)imageAlbumView:(PTImageAlbumView *)imageAlbumView sourceForImageAtIndex:(NSInteger)index {
    #warning missing implementation
}
