FlyImage

FlyImage takes the advantages of SDWebImage, FastImageCache and AFNetworking, is a simple and high performance image library.

Features:

  • High Performance, reduce memory operations while rendering, avoid Memory warning caused by image
  • Store and retrieve different size of small images in one memory file, smooth scrolling
  • Simple, support UIImageView, CALayer category
  • An asynchronous image downloader
  • Support WebP format
  • Support mmap to improve I/O performace

Installation with CocoaPods

Set the Podfile like this:

platform :ios, '8.0'
pod 'FlyImage', '~>1.0'

If you are using Swift, be sure to add use_frameworks!:

platform :ios, '8.0'
use_frameworks!
pod 'FlyImage', '~>1.0'

If you want to support WebP, just change the Podfile:

platform :ios, '8.0'
pod 'FlyImage/WebP', '~>1.0'

How To Use

Using UIImageView and CALayer Category

#import "FlyImage.h"
...

UIImageView *imageView = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithFrame:frame];
[imageView setPlaceHolderImageName:@"default"
						thumbnailURL:[NSURL urlWithString:@"http://thumbnail"]
						originalURL:[NSURL urlWithString:@"http://original"]];
[]self.view addSubview:imageView];
...

UIImageView *iconView = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithFrame:frame];
[iconView setIconURL:[NSURL urlWithString:@"http://original"]];
[]self.view addSubview:iconView];
...

Using FlyImageCache

// retrieve a specific key, and get callback
[[FlyImageCache sharedInstance] asyncGetImageWithKey:key
	  									   completed:^(NSString *key, UIImage *image) {
		imageView.image = image;
}];

// remove a image from the cache	
[[FlyImageCache sharedInstance] removeImageWithKey:key];

// delete all images
[[FlyImageCache sharedInstance] purge];

Using FlyImageIconCache

// add a new icon with a specific key
[[FlyImageIconCache sharedInstance] addImageWithKey:key
        size:drawSize
        drawingBlock:^(CGContextRef context, CGRect contextBounds) {
        	UIImage *image = [UIImage imageWithName:@"imageName"];

    		UIGraphicsPushContext(context);
		    [image drawInRect:contextBounds];
		    UIGraphicsPopContext();
        }
        completed:nil];

// retrieve a specific key, and get callback
[[FlyImageCache sharedInstance] asyncGetImageWithKey:key
	  									   completed:^(NSString *key, UIImage *image) {
		imageView.image = image;
}];
