A multi-directional card swiping library inspired by Tinder.



? Advanced swipe recognition based on velocity and card position

? Manual and programmatic actions

? Smooth card overlay view transitions

? Fluid and customizable animations

? Dynamic card loading using data source pattern


To run the example project, clone the repo and run the ShuffleExample target.

Basic Usage

  1. Create your own card by subclassing SwipeCard. The card below displays an image, can be swiped left or right, and has overlay views for both directions:

    class SampleCard: SwipeCard {
       override var swipeDirections {
          return [.left, .right]
       init(image: UIImage) {
            content = UIImageView(image: image)
            leftOverlay = UIView()
            rightOverlay = UIView()
            leftoverlay.backgroundColor = .green
            rightOverlay.backgroundColor = .red
  2. Initialize your card data and place a SwipeCardStack on your view:

    class ViewController: UIViewController {
        let cardStack = SwipeCardStack()
        let cardImages = [
            UIImage(named: "cardImage1"),
            UIImage(named: "cardImage2"),
            UIImage(named: "cardImage3")
        override func viewDidLoad() {
            cardStack.frame = view.safeAreaLayoutGuide
                                  .bounds.insetBy(dx: 10, dy: 50)
  3. Conform your class to the SwipeCardStackDataSource protocol and set your card stack's dataSource:

    func numberOfCards(in cardStack: SwipeCardStack) -> Int {
       return cardImages.count
    func cardStack(_ cardStack: SwipeCardStack, cardForIndexAt index: Int) -> SwipeCard {
       return SampleCard(image: cardImages[index])
    cardStack.dataSource = self
  4. Conform to the SwipeCardStackDelegate protocol to subscribe to any of the following events:

     func didSwipeAllCards(_ cardStack: SwipeCardStack)
     func cardStack(_ cardStack: SwipeCardStack, didSwipeCardAt index: Int, with direction: SwipeDirection)
     func cardStack(_ cardStack: SwipeCardStack, didUndoCardAt index: Int, from direction: SwipeDirection)
     func cardStack(_ cardStack: SwipeCardStack, didSelectCardAt index: Int)

    Note: didSwipeCardAt and didSwipeAllCards are called regardless if a card is swiped programmatically or by the user.

Card Actions

The following methods are available on SwipeCardStack.


Performs a swipe programmatically in the given direction.

func swipe(_ direction: SwipeDirection, animated: Bool)



Restores the card stack to its state before the last swipe.

func undoLastSwipe(animated: Bool)



Shifts the card stack's cards by the given distance. Any swiped cards are skipped over.

func shift(withDistance distance: Int = 1, animated: Bool)
