TheAnimation

Type-safe CAAnimation wrapper. It makes preventing to set wrong type values.

Introduction

For example, if you want to animate backgroundColor with CABasicAnimation, you need to consider type because fromValue property and so on are Any?.

background_raw

If you use BasicAnimation of TheAnimation, you can animate backgroundColor without considering type! (AnimationKeyPaths.backgroundColor is AnimationKeyPath<CGColor> type.)

Usage

The way of making an animation is almost similar CAAnimation.
But you need to use animation.animate(in:) method instead of using layer.add(_:forKey:).

let view = UIView()

let animation = BasicAnimation(keyPath: .opacity)
animation.fromValue = 0
animation.toValue   = 1
animation.duration  = 1
animation.animate(in: view)

animation.animate(in:) returns AnimaitonCanceller. You can cancel an animation with it.

let canceller = animation.animate(in: view)
canceller.cancelAnimation()

Example

To run the example project, clone the repo, and open Example directory.

    static let newKeyPath = AnimationKeyPath<CGFloat>(keyPath: "abcd")
}
