Zenith is a framework for simple and smart seperation of the view controller and view management, leaving your controller to manage interactions and other "controller" like things. As well as a Router to simplify navigation through your app.


  • iOS 11.0+
  • Xcode 9.0
  • Swift 4.0



CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Objective-C and Swift.
To learn more about setting up your project for CocoaPods, please refer to the official documentation.
To integrate Zenith into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, you have to add it to your project's Podfile:

source ''
platform :ios, '11.0'


target '<Your Target Name>' do
  pod 'Zenith', '~> 1.0'

Afterwards, run the following command:

$ pod install


Zenith allows the view controller to hand off view layout and management to a component.

import UIKit
import Zenith

class MyViewComponent : ViewComponent {
  private lazy var label:UILabel = {
    let label = UILabel()
    label.textAlignment = .center
    label.text = "Hello, world"
    return label
  override func setupConstraints() {
      // Add constraints here
  override func render() -> UIView {
    return children(

class MyViewController : ViewController<MyViewComponent> {
  // Your view controller will now load the component and
  // present it, like normal.

Zenith also features a router to simplify navigation.

import Zenith

enum MyRoute : RouteOption {
  case home
  case about

  var controller:UIViewController {
    switch self {
    case .home:
      return UINavigationController(rootViewController: MyHomeViewController)
    case .about:
      return UINavigationController(rootViewController: MyAboutViewController)

// Create an instance of your router, where you can access it anywhere.

let router = Router<MyRoute>()
