RESideMenu

iOS 7/8 style side menu with parallax effect inspired by Dribbble shots (first and second).

Since version 4.0 you can add menu view controllers on both left and right sides of your content view controller.

Requirements

  • Xcode 6 or higher
  • Apple LLVM compiler
  • iOS 6.0 or higher
  • ARC

Demo

Build and run the RESideMenuExample project in Xcode to see RESideMenu in action. For storyboards integration demo, build and run RESideMenuStoryboardsExample.

Installation

CocoaPods

The recommended approach for installating RESideMenu is via the CocoaPods package manager, as it provides flexible dependency management and dead simple installation. For best results, it is recommended that you install via CocoaPods >= 0.28.0 using Git >= 1.8.0 installed via Homebrew.

Install CocoaPods if not already available:

$ [sudo] gem install cocoapods
$ pod setup

Change to the directory of your Xcode project:

$ cd /path/to/MyProject
$ touch Podfile
$ edit Podfile

Edit your Podfile and add RESideMenu:

platform :ios, '6.0'
pod 'RESideMenu', '~> 4.0.7'

Install into your Xcode project:

$ pod install

Open your project in Xcode from the .xcworkspace file (not the usual project file)

$ open MyProject.xcworkspace

Please note that if your installation fails, it may be because you are installing with a version of Git lower than CocoaPods is expecting. Please ensure that you are running Git >= 1.8.0 by executing git --version. You can get a full picture of the installation details by executing pod install --verbose.

Manual Install

All you need to do is drop RESideMenu files into your project, and add #include "RESideMenu.h" to the top of classes that will use it.

Example Usage

In your AppDelegate's - (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions create the view controller and assign content and menu view controllers.

// Create content and menu controllers
//
DEMONavigationController *navigationController = [[DEMONavigationController alloc] initWithRootViewController:[[DEMOHomeViewController alloc] init]];
DEMOLeftMenuViewController *leftMenuViewController = [[DEMOLeftMenuViewController alloc] init];
DEMORightMenuViewController *rightMenuViewController = [[DEMORightMenuViewController alloc] init];

// Create side menu controller
//
RESideMenu *sideMenuViewController = [[RESideMenu alloc] initWithContentViewController:navigationController
                                                                leftMenuViewController:leftMenuViewController
                                                               rightMenuViewController:rightMenuViewController];
sideMenuViewController.backgroundImage = [UIImage imageNamed:@"Stars"];

// Make it a root controller
//
self.window.rootViewController = sideMenuViewController;

Present the menu view controller:

[self.sideMenuViewController presentLeftMenuViewController];

or

[self.sideMenuViewController presentRightMenuViewController];

Switch content view controllers:

#import <RESideMenu/RESideMenu.h>

....

[self.sideMenuViewController setContentViewController:viewController animated:YES];
[self.sideMenuViewController hideMenuViewController];

Storyboards Example

  1. Create a subclass of RESideMenu. In this example we call it DEMORootViewController.
  2. In the Storyboard designate the root view's owner as DEMORootViewController.
  3. Make sure to #import "RESideMenu.h" in DEMORootViewController.h.
  4. Add more view controllers to your Storyboard, and give them identifiers "leftMenuViewController", "rightMenuViewController" and "contentViewController". Note that in the new XCode the identifier is called "Storyboard ID" and can be found in the Identity inspector.
  5. Add a method awakeFromNib to DEMORootViewController.m with the following code:
- (void)awakeFromNib
{
    self.contentViewController = [self.storyboard instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier:@"contentViewController"];
    self.leftMenuViewController = [self.storyboard instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier:@"leftMenuViewController"];
    self.rightMenuViewController = [self.storyboard instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier:@"rightMenuViewController"];
}

Customization

You can customize the following properties of RESideMenu:

@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) NSTimeInterval animationDuration;
@property (strong, readwrite, nonatomic) UIImage *backgroundImage;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) BOOL panGestureEnabled;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) BOOL panFromEdge;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) NSUInteger panMinimumOpenThreshold;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) BOOL interactivePopGestureRecognizerEnabled;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) BOOL scaleContentView;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) BOOL scaleBackgroundImageView;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) BOOL scaleMenuView;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) BOOL contentViewShadowEnabled;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) UIColor *contentViewShadowColor;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) CGSize contentViewShadowOffset;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) CGFloat contentViewShadowOpacity;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) CGFloat contentViewShadowRadius;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) CGFloat contentViewScaleValue;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) CGFloat contentViewInLandscapeOffsetCenterX;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) CGFloat contentViewInPortraitOffsetCenterX;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) CGFloat parallaxMenuMinimumRelativeValue;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) CGFloat parallaxMenuMaximumRelativeValue;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) CGFloat parallaxContentMinimumRelativeValue;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) CGFloat parallaxContentMaximumRelativeValue;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) CGAffineTransform menuViewControllerTransformation;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) BOOL parallaxEnabled;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) BOOL bouncesHorizontally;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) UIStatusBarStyle menuPreferredStatusBarStyle;
@property (assign, readwrite, nonatomic) BOOL menuPrefersStatusBarHidden;

If you set a backgroundImage, don't forget to set the Menu View Controller's background color to clear color.

You can implement RESideMenuDelegate protocol to receive the following messages:

- (void)sideMenu:(RESideMenu *)sideMenu didRecognizePanGesture:(UIPanGestureRecognizer *)recognizer;
- (void)sideMenu:(RESideMenu *)sideMenu willShowMenuViewController:(UIViewController *)menuViewController;
- (void)sideMenu:(RESideMenu *)sideMenu didShowMenuViewController:(UIViewController *)menuViewController;
- (void)sideMenu:(RESideMenu *)sideMenu willHideMenuViewController:(UIViewController *)menuViewController;
- (void)sideMenu:(RESideMenu *)sideMenu didHideMenuViewController:(UIViewController *)menuViewController;
