Installation

You want to add pod 'DWAnimatedLabel', '~> 1.1' similar to the following to your Podfile:

target 'MyApp' do
  pod 'DWAnimatedLabel', '~> 1.1'
end

Then run a pod install inside your terminal, or from CocoaPods.app.

Alternatively to give it a test run, run the command:

pod try DWAnimatedLabel

Usage

You need to import the module fire:

import DWAnimatedLabel

Then you can create the label just like using UILabel.

let label = DWAnimatedLabel(frame: CGRect(x: 20, y: 44, width: UIScreen.main.bounds.size.width, height: 100))
label.text = "LOADING"
label.font = UIFont.systemFont(ofSize: 70, weight: .bold)

Also you can choose animation type by setting the animationType property.

label.animationType = .wave

If you are using wave animation, you also need to set the placeHolderColor property, otherwise it will be UIColor.lightGray.

label.placeHolderColor = .blue

After setting up these properties you can use startAnimation(duration: TimeInterval, _ completion:(() -> Void)?) to start perform animation.
