How To Use

  • Open the project(InstagramStories) folder. You can find the Source folder inside.
  • Drag and drop Source folder into your project.
  • In your project use same IGStoryPreviewController.
  • But do not change default code what we have written inside IGStoryPreviewController. You can add code on top of that.
  • Also do not change collectionView custom cell. Use the same IGStoryPreviewCell.
  • Because all the functionalities are handled in the IGStoryPreviewCell only.
  • If there is any issue or stuck somewhere on configuring Source folder on your project, please raise issues on github. We will reply back as soon as possible.
