Useage

Shimmer is super easy to get started with.

Simply create a ShimmeringView or ShimmeringLayer and add your content.

// Setup ShimmeringView
let shimmerView = ShimmeringView(frame: self.view.bounds)
self.view.addSubview(shimmerView)

// Setup the view you want shimmered
let label = UILabel(frame: shimmerView.bounds)
label.text = "This is my shimmering text"

// Add the view you want shimmered to the `shimmerView`
shimmerView.contentView = label

// Start shimmering
shimmerView.isShimmering = true

// To stop shimmering.
shimmerView.isShimmering = false
