Continuum

CI Status Version Carthage compatible License Platform

NotificationCenter based Lightweight UI / AnyObject binder.

final class ViewController: UIViewController {

    @IBOutlet weak var label: UILabel!

    private let viewModel: ViewModel = ViewModel()
    private let center = NotificationCenter()
    private let bag = ContinuumBag()

    override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()

        center.continuum
            .observe(viewModel.text, on: .main, bindTo: label, \.text)
            .disposed(by: bag)

        viewModel.text.value = "Binding this text to label.text!"
    }
}

final class ViewModel {
    let text: Variable<String>

    init() {
        self.text = Variable(value: "")
    }
}

Usage

1. Observe object KeyPath and bind it to target KeyPath

NotificationCenter's instance has continuum property. You can access Continuum functions from it.

let center = NotificationCenter()
let observer = center.continuum.observe(viewModel, \.text, on: .main, bindTo: label, \.text)

Above source code means observe viewModel's text propety and bind that value to label's text property on main thread. If property is observed, current value comes immediately.

Notify changes with func post(keyPath:)

If value changed, notify changes like this.

viewModel.text = "Changed"
center.continuum.post(keyPath: \ViewModel.text)
print(label.text) // Changed

2. Observe Constant / Variable and bind it to target KeyPath

Constant / Variable are value wrapper. Variable has getter / setter. Constant has only getter.

let center = NotificationCenter()
let text = Variable<String>(value: "")
let observer = center.continuum.observe(text, on: .main, bindTo: label, \.text)

If property is observed, current value comes immediately.

3. Observe Constant / Variable and bind it to closure

Constant / Variable are value wrapper. Variable has getter / setter. Constant has only getter.

let center = NotificationCenter()
let text = Variable<String>(value: "")
let observer = center.continuum.observe(text, on: .main, onValueChange: { value in
    // something to do
})

If property is observed, current value comes immediately.

Notify changes with setter of value at Variable

If Variable's value is changed, func post(name:object:) is automatically executed.

text.value = "Changed"
print(label.text) // Changed

In addition, if Variable's value is changed, related Constant value is automatically changed.

let center = NotificationCenter()
let variable = Variable<String>(value: "")
let constant = Constant<String>(variable: variable)
let observer = center.continuum.observe(constant, on: .main, bindTo: label, \.text)
variable.value = "Changed"
print(label.text) // Changed

Lifecycle of ContinuumObserver

func observe(_:,_:,on:,bindTo:,_:) returns ContinuumObserver. If func cancel() of ContinuumObserver called, observation is cancelled.

let observer = center.continuum.observe(viewModel, \.text, on: .main, bindTo: label, \.text)
observer.cancel()

If adding observer to ContinumeBag, observation is cancelled by lifecycle of ContinumeBag.

var bag = ContinumeBag()
center.continuum
    .observe(viewModel, \.text, on: .main, bindTo: label, \.text)
    .disposed(by: bag)

bag = ContinumeBag() // previous instance of ContinumeBag is released and observation is cancelled.
