Top ​ ​9 ​ ​Useful ​ ​Open ​ ​Source ​ ​iOS ​ ​Libraries of ​ ​2017 ​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​Prepared ​ ​By ​ ​​ ​​Space-O ​ ​Technologies

slide 2:

We ​ ​love ​ ​open ​ ​source ​ ​libraries They ​ ​save ​ ​us ​ ​a ​ ​lot ​ ​of ​ ​time ​ ​and ​ ​hassle ​ ​for ​ ​developing ​ ​iOS ​ ​apps. ​ ​Majority ​ ​of these ​ ​libraries ​ ​support ​ ​Cocoapods ​ ​which ​ ​means ​ ​adding ​ ​them ​ ​to ​ ​Xcode projects ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​real ​ ​breeze. Many ​ ​times ​ ​we’ve ​ ​been ​ ​asked ​ ​by ​ ​developers ​ ​ ​and ​ ​our ​ ​clients ​ ​ ​that ​ ​how does ​ ​these ​ ​open ​ ​source ​ ​libraries ​ ​benefit ​ ​us The ​ ​answer ​ ​is ​ ​simple. ​ ​Rather ​ ​than ​ ​building ​ ​something ​ ​from ​ ​scratch ​ ​why not ​ ​use ​ ​the ​ ​available ​ ​open ​ ​source ​ ​libraries ​ ​to ​ ​build ​ ​your ​ ​iOS ​ ​app. Over ​ ​the ​ ​years ​ ​we’ve ​ ​used ​ ​a ​ ​lot ​ ​of ​ ​different ​ ​open ​ ​source ​ ​libraries ​ ​which helped ​ ​us ​ ​complete ​ ​milestones ​ ​successfully ​ ​in ​ ​our ​ ​clients’ ​ ​projects. ​ ​These open ​ ​source ​ ​libraries ​ ​helped ​ ​us ​ ​in ​ ​developing ​ ​one ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​most ​ ​successful apps ​ ​used ​ ​by ​ ​millions ​ ​of ​ ​people ​ ​all ​ ​over ​ ​the ​ ​world. In ​ ​this ​ ​document ​ ​we’ve ​ ​curated ​ ​a ​ ​list ​ ​of ​ ​useful ​ ​open ​ ​source ​ ​iOS ​ ​libraries. Embed ​ ​them ​ ​in ​ ​your ​ ​apps ​ ​and ​ ​embrace ​ ​its ​ ​benefits ​ ​just ​ ​like ​ ​we ​ ​do.

slide 3:

1 ​ ​– ​ ​AFNetworking When ​ ​it’s ​ ​the ​ ​matter ​ ​about ​ ​networking ​ ​this ​ ​iOS ​ ​library ​ ​makes ​ ​every ​ ​developer’s ​ ​life ​ ​a ​ ​whole ​ ​lot easier. If ​ ​you’re ​ ​using ​ ​an ​ ​API ​ ​in ​ ​your ​ ​iOS ​ ​app ​ ​this ​ ​is ​ ​what ​ ​you ​ ​can ​ ​use ​ ​and ​ ​we ​ ​recommend. ​ ​It ​ ​is ​ ​one of ​ ​the ​ ​most ​ ​popular ​ ​open ​ ​source ​ ​libraries ​ ​out ​ ​there. ​ ​AFNetworking ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​lightweight ​ ​and ​ ​fast ​ ​open source ​ ​networking ​ ​library ​ ​that ​ ​uses ​ ​blocks ​ ​and ​ ​grand ​ ​central ​ ​dispatch ​ ​GCD. This ​ ​basically ​ ​helps ​ ​in ​ ​improving ​ ​app’s ​ ​responsiveness ​ ​provides ​ ​easier ​ ​concurrency ​ ​model ​ ​than locks ​ ​and ​ ​threads ​ ​and ​ ​also ​ ​optimizes ​ ​code ​ ​with ​ ​higher ​ ​performance ​ ​primitives. Thanks ​ ​to ​ ​its ​ ​creator ​ ​Matt ​ ​Thompson ​ ​it ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​great ​ ​example ​ ​of ​ ​an ​ ​open ​ ​source ​ ​project ​ ​should ​ ​be run. ​ ​In ​ ​fact ​ ​this ​ ​iOS ​ ​library ​ ​has ​ ​become ​ ​quite ​ ​popular ​ ​as ​ ​it ​ ​has ​ ​an ​ ​amazing ​ ​community ​ ​of ​ ​iOS developers ​ ​who ​ ​contributes ​ ​to ​ ​AFNetworking ​ ​daily. When ​ ​we ​ ​say ​ ​networking ​ ​we ​ ​mean ​ ​whenever ​ ​you’ve ​ ​to ​ ​call ​ ​certain ​ ​API ​ ​to ​ ​fetch ​ ​data ​ ​from server ​ ​or ​ ​database ​ ​this ​ ​iOS ​ ​library ​ ​makes ​ ​the ​ ​entire ​ ​API ​ ​call ​ ​process ​ ​a ​ ​whole ​ ​lot ​ ​easier.

slide 4:

2 ​ ​– ​ ​Alamofire Alamofire ​ ​is ​ ​AFNetworking’s ​ ​younger ​ ​and ​ ​more ​ ​of ​ ​a ​ ​trendy ​ ​brother. ​ ​It ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​Swift-based ​ ​HTTP networking ​ ​library ​ ​for ​ ​iOS ​ ​and ​ ​Mac ​ ​OS ​ ​X. ​ ​It ​ ​provides ​ ​an ​ ​elegant ​ ​interface ​ ​on ​ ​top ​ ​of ​ ​Apple’s Foundation ​ ​networking ​ ​stack ​ ​which ​ ​simplifies ​ ​many ​ ​common ​ ​networking ​ ​tasks ​ ​such ​ ​as providing ​ ​network ​ ​communication ​ ​for ​ ​a ​ ​multiplayer ​ ​game ​ ​and ​ ​also ​ ​makes ​ ​uploading downloading ​ ​and ​ ​getting ​ ​JSONS ​ ​a ​ ​piece ​ ​of ​ ​cake. Alamofire’s ​ ​elegance ​ ​comes ​ ​from ​ ​the ​ ​fact ​ ​that ​ ​it ​ ​was ​ ​written ​ ​in ​ ​Swift ​ ​from ​ ​ground ​ ​up ​ ​and ​ ​does not ​ ​inherit ​ ​anything ​ ​from ​ ​its ​ ​Objective-C ​ ​brother ​ ​AFNetworking. ​ ​Alamofire ​ ​offers ​ ​chainable request/response ​ ​methods ​ ​JSON ​ ​parameter ​ ​and ​ ​response ​ ​serialization ​ ​to ​ ​perform ​ ​basic networking ​ ​tasks ​ ​like ​ ​uploading ​ ​files ​ ​and ​ ​reducing ​ ​data ​ ​from ​ ​a ​ ​third-party ​ ​API. In ​ ​simple ​ ​words ​ ​it ​ ​reduces ​ ​the ​ ​effort ​ ​of ​ ​developer ​ ​because ​ ​developer ​ ​does ​ ​not ​ ​need ​ ​to ​ ​directly deal ​ ​with ​ ​​URLSession ​. ​ ​Alamofire ​ ​uses ​ ​​URLSession ​ ​ ​internally. Although ​ ​you ​ ​should ​ ​have ​ ​a ​ ​conceptual ​ ​understanding ​ ​of ​ ​HTTP ​ ​networking ​ ​and ​ ​some ​ ​exposure to ​ ​Apple’s ​ ​networking ​ ​classes ​ ​such ​ ​as ​ ​​URLSession ​. But ​ ​by ​ ​using ​ ​an ​ ​iOS ​ ​library ​ ​like ​ ​Alamofire ​ ​you ​ ​can ​ ​greatly ​ ​reduce ​ ​boilerplate ​ ​code ​ ​in ​ ​your ​ ​iOS app. ​ ​And ​ ​like ​ ​already ​ ​mentioned ​ ​Alamofire ​ ​is ​ ​an ​ ​incredibly ​ ​easy ​ ​to ​ ​use ​ ​and ​ ​makes ​ ​everything look ​ ​a ​ ​lot ​ ​cleaner.

slide 5:

3 ​ ​– ​ ​JSONModel Most ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​time ​ ​our ​ ​iOS ​ ​devices ​ ​are ​ ​connected ​ ​to ​ ​the ​ ​internet ​ ​and ​ ​naturally ​ ​most ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​apps on ​ ​our ​ ​smartphones ​ ​connect ​ ​to ​ ​a ​ ​remote ​ ​server ​ ​to ​ ​obtain ​ ​some ​ ​chunks ​ ​of ​ ​data ​ ​every ​ ​now ​ ​and then. Some ​ ​of ​ ​these ​ ​mobile ​ ​apps ​ ​consume ​ ​only ​ ​a ​ ​little ​ ​bit ​ ​of ​ ​data. ​ ​For ​ ​example ​ ​News ​ ​app ​ ​fetching only ​ ​latest ​ ​headlines ​ ​every ​ ​hour. ​ ​But ​ ​other ​ ​apps ​ ​like ​ ​Facebook ​ ​or ​ ​Twitter ​ ​interact ​ ​with ​ ​these servers ​ ​on ​ ​continuous ​ ​basis. All ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​mobile ​ ​applications ​ ​nowadays ​ ​communicate ​ ​with ​ ​these ​ ​remote ​ ​servers ​ ​using ​ ​JSON. If ​ ​you’re ​ ​​developing ​ ​an ​ ​iOS ​ ​app ​​ ​which ​ ​often ​ ​requires ​ ​communication ​ ​with ​ ​a ​ ​remote ​ ​server ​ ​most probably ​ ​you ​ ​might ​ ​already ​ ​getting ​ ​JSON ​ ​responses. ​ ​This ​ ​is ​ ​where ​ ​JSONModel ​ ​library ​ ​comes ​ ​to help. JSONModel ​ ​is ​ ​an ​ ​open ​ ​source ​ ​library ​ ​which ​ ​helps ​ ​to ​ ​fetch ​ ​JSON ​ ​from ​ ​server ​ ​parse ​ ​it ​ ​and initialize ​ ​your ​ ​model ​ ​classes ​ ​with ​ ​JSON ​ ​response ​ ​from ​ ​the ​ ​server. ​ ​It ​ ​also ​ ​validates ​ ​the ​ ​JSON data. ​ ​Most ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​times ​ ​JSONModel ​ ​is ​ ​used ​ ​to ​ ​show ​ ​response ​ ​data ​ ​received ​ ​from ​ ​API ​ ​request in ​ ​JSON ​ ​format ​ ​easily. ​ ​So ​ ​If ​ ​you’ve ​ ​a ​ ​more ​ ​complex ​ ​data ​ ​model ​ ​in ​ ​your ​ ​application JSONModel ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​real ​ ​time-saver.

4 ​ ​– ​ ​MagicalRecord “Core ​ ​Data ​ ​is ​ ​simple” ​​ ​said ​ ​Apple. ​ ​​“Nice ​ ​and ​ ​simple.“ Really ​ ​Apple It ​ ​doesn’t ​ ​look ​ ​like ​ ​it. ​ ​A ​ ​ton ​ ​of ​ ​boilerplate ​ ​code ​ ​being ​ ​added ​ ​for ​ ​core ​ ​data ​ ​to ​ ​each ​ ​iOS ​ ​app ​ ​isn’t very ​ ​elegant. ​ ​Not ​ ​to ​ ​mention ​ ​adding ​ ​deleting ​ ​and ​ ​updating ​ ​all ​ ​entities ​ ​creating ​ ​various ​ ​core data ​ ​stacks ​ ​for ​ ​different ​ ​environments. ​ ​Point ​ ​is ​ ​it ​ ​just ​ ​could ​ ​have ​ ​been ​ ​much ​ ​better ​ ​Apple. To ​ ​see ​ ​how ​ ​things ​ ​could ​ ​go ​ ​wrong ​ ​while ​ ​using ​ ​Core ​ ​data ​ ​and ​ ​to ​ ​teach ​ ​our ​ ​interns ​ ​how ​ ​to ​ ​handle it ​ ​we ​ ​had ​ ​assigned ​ ​them ​ ​a ​ ​task. ​ ​All ​ ​they ​ ​had ​ ​to ​ ​do ​ ​is ​ ​develop ​ ​an ​ ​iOS ​ ​app ​ ​which ​ ​involved ​ ​core data. ​ ​All ​ ​of ​ ​them ​ ​decided ​ ​the ​ ​whole ​ ​infrastructure ​ ​in ​ ​the ​ ​beginning ​ ​to ​ ​make ​ ​it ​ ​perfectly organized. Can ​ ​you ​ ​guess ​ ​what ​ ​happened ​​ ​Things ​ ​started ​ ​to ​ ​get ​ ​out ​ ​of ​ ​control ​ ​and ​ ​our ​ ​interns ​ ​couldn’t follow ​ ​their ​ ​pre-defined ​ ​infrastructure ​ ​80 ​ ​percent ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​time. This ​ ​is ​ ​where ​ ​MagicalRecord ​ ​library ​ ​came ​ ​to ​ ​rescue. ​ ​One ​ ​of ​ ​our ​ ​senior ​ ​iOS ​ ​developer ​ ​having 5+ ​ ​years ​ ​of ​ ​experience ​ ​explained ​ ​them ​ ​how ​ ​to ​ ​use ​ ​MagicalRecord ​ ​iOS ​ ​library.

slide 7:

MagicalRecord ​ ​is ​ ​an ​ ​open ​ ​source ​ ​iOS ​ ​library ​ ​which ​ ​makes ​ ​working ​ ​with ​ ​Core ​ ​Data ​ ​extremely easier ​ ​and ​ ​more ​ ​elegant. ​ ​MagicalRecord ​ ​works ​ ​like ​ ​a ​ ​wrapper ​ ​for ​ ​core ​ ​data ​ ​and ​ ​hides ​ ​all non-relevant ​ ​stuff ​ ​from ​ ​developer. The ​ ​point ​ ​of ​ ​MagicalRecord ​ ​is ​ ​to ​ ​“clean ​ ​up” ​ ​core ​ ​data ​ ​code ​ ​and ​ ​enable ​ ​simple ​ ​one-line ​ ​fetches of ​ ​data ​ ​while ​ ​also ​ ​allowing ​ ​custom ​ ​performance ​ ​optimizations. How ​ ​does ​ ​it ​ ​do ​ ​it ​​ ​Well ​ ​it ​ ​provides ​ ​convenience ​ ​methods ​ ​to ​ ​wrap ​ ​boilerplate ​ ​for ​ ​core ​ ​data setup ​ ​query ​ ​and ​ ​update. ​ ​Furthermore ​ ​if ​ ​you’ve ​ ​ever ​ ​worked ​ ​with ​ ​active ​ ​record ​ ​pattern ​ ​then MagicalRecord ​ ​open ​ ​source ​ ​library ​ ​is ​ ​really ​ ​recommended ​ ​for ​ ​using ​ ​core ​ ​data ​ ​in ​ ​your ​ ​iOS ​ ​app. Github ​ ​Link ​ ​– ​ ​​https://github.com/magicalpanda/MagicalRecord

slide 8:

5 ​ ​– ​ ​Chameleon If ​ ​you’re ​ ​an ​ ​iOS ​ ​app ​ ​developer ​ ​with ​ ​a ​ ​design ​ ​band ​ ​this ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​library ​ ​you ​ ​would ​ ​really ​ ​love ​ ​to relish. Chameleon ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​lightweight ​ ​yet ​ ​powerful ​ ​color ​ ​framework ​ ​for ​ ​both ​ ​Objective-C ​ ​and ​ ​Swift. ​ ​It ​ ​was developed ​ ​on ​ ​an ​ ​idea ​ ​that ​ ​iOS ​ ​apps ​ ​should ​ ​function ​ ​effortlessly ​ ​while ​ ​also ​ ​maintaining ​ ​their beautiful ​ ​interfaces ​ ​simultaneously. It ​ ​basically ​ ​extends ​ ​UIColor ​ ​with ​ ​beautiful ​ ​modern ​ ​flat ​ ​colors. ​ ​It ​ ​also ​ ​gives ​ ​an ​ ​ability ​ ​to ​ ​create color ​ ​palettes ​ ​from ​ ​colors ​ ​defined ​ ​by ​ ​you. So ​ ​if ​ ​you’ve ​ ​a ​ ​beautiful ​ ​design ​ ​in ​ ​mind ​ ​for ​ ​your ​ ​iOS ​ ​app ​ ​then ​ ​this ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​must-use ​ ​library ​ ​for ​ ​you. Github ​ ​Link ​ ​– ​ ​​https://github.com/ViccAlexander/Chameleon

slide 9:

6 ​ ​– ​ ​GPUImage GPUImage ​ ​in ​ ​simple ​ ​words ​ ​is ​ ​used ​ ​for ​ ​image ​ ​processing. ​ ​If ​ ​you’re ​ ​planning ​ ​to ​ ​add ​ ​camera features ​ ​in ​ ​your ​ ​iOS ​ ​app ​ ​or ​ ​​building ​ ​a ​ ​photo ​ ​video ​ ​app ​ ​ ​from ​ ​scratch ​ ​then ​ ​get ​ ​this ​ ​GPUImage library ​ ​embedded ​ ​in ​ ​your ​ ​iOS ​ ​app ​ ​project. The ​ ​GPUImage ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​third-party ​ ​framework ​ ​available ​ ​for ​ ​interactive ​ ​processing ​ ​with ​ ​camera videos ​ ​images ​ ​processing ​ ​of ​ ​images ​ ​and ​ ​videos. ​ ​It ​ ​basically ​ ​allows ​ ​to ​ ​apply ​ ​GPU-accelerated filters ​ ​and ​ ​effects ​ ​to ​ ​images ​ ​live ​ ​camera ​ ​video ​ ​and ​ ​movies. In ​ ​fact ​ ​we’ve ​ ​used ​ ​this ​ ​library ​ ​in ​ ​most ​ ​of ​ ​our ​ ​photos ​ ​videos ​ ​app ​ ​projects ​ ​some ​ ​of ​ ​which ​ ​also ​ ​got featured ​ ​on ​ ​the ​ ​App ​ ​Store. If ​ ​you’d ​ ​like ​ ​to ​ ​know ​ ​more ​ ​about ​ ​which ​ ​of ​ ​our ​ ​photos ​ ​videos ​ ​app ​ ​got ​ ​featured ​ ​on ​ ​App ​ ​Store please ​ ​check ​ ​this ​ ​article. GPUImage ​ ​is ​ ​the ​ ​best ​ ​iOS ​ ​framework ​ ​to ​ ​develop ​ ​photos ​ ​ ​ ​video ​ ​apps ​ ​because ​ ​it ​ ​allows ​ ​you ​ ​to write ​ ​your ​ ​own ​ ​custom ​ ​filters ​ ​supports ​ ​deployment ​ ​and ​ ​has ​ ​a ​ ​quite ​ ​simple ​ ​user ​ ​interface. The ​ ​original ​ ​GPUImage ​ ​framework ​ ​was ​ ​written ​ ​in ​ ​Objective-C ​ ​and ​ ​was ​ ​targeted ​ ​for ​ ​iOS ​ ​app development ​ ​but ​ ​the ​ ​latest ​ ​version ​ ​is ​ ​written ​ ​entirely ​ ​in ​ ​Swift ​ ​which ​ ​also ​ ​targets ​ ​Linux ​ ​and ​ ​other future ​ ​platforms ​ ​that ​ ​supports ​ ​Swift ​ ​code.

7 ​ ​– ​ ​ReactiveCocoa ReactiveCocoa ​ ​isn’t ​ ​just ​ ​another ​ ​drop-in ​ ​project ​ ​like ​ ​others ​ ​in ​ ​this ​ ​list. ​ ​It ​ ​is ​ ​rather ​ ​an Objective-C ​ ​framework ​ ​inspired ​ ​by ​ ​functional ​ ​programming. ReactiveCocoa ​ ​is ​ ​an ​ ​Objective-C ​ ​framework ​ ​for ​ ​Functional ​ ​Reactive ​ ​programming FRP ​ ​which ​ ​seeks ​ ​to ​ ​provide ​ ​more ​ ​concise ​ ​and ​ ​flow-based ​ ​code. The ​ ​main ​ ​reason ​ ​why ​ ​ReactiveCocoa ​ ​known ​ ​as ​ ​FRP ​ ​Functional ​ ​Reactive Programming ​ ​is ​ ​because ​ ​it ​ ​combines ​ ​a ​ ​couple ​ ​of ​ ​programming ​ ​styles. ● Functional ​ ​Programming ​ ​– ​ ​which ​ ​makes ​ ​use ​ ​of ​ ​higher ​ ​order ​ ​functions ​ ​such ​ ​as functions ​ ​that ​ ​take ​ ​other ​ ​functions ​ ​as ​ ​their ​ ​arguments. ● Reactive ​ ​Programming ​ ​– ​ ​which ​ ​focuses ​ ​of ​ ​data-flows ​ ​and ​ ​change ​ ​propagation. Besides ​ ​this ​ ​ReactiveCocoa ​ ​also ​ ​offers ​ ​new ​ ​methods ​ ​to ​ ​compose ​ ​and ​ ​transform streams ​ ​of ​ ​values. ​ ​It ​ ​operates ​ ​by ​ ​using ​ ​signals ​ ​which ​ ​captures ​ ​present ​ ​and ​ ​future values. ​ ​More ​ ​importantly ​ ​the ​ ​main ​ ​benefit ​ ​of ​ ​ReactiveCocoa ​ ​is ​ ​that ​ ​it ​ ​provides ​ ​a ​ ​way ​ ​to deal ​ ​with ​ ​asynchronous ​ ​behaviors ​ ​callback ​ ​blocks ​ ​notifications ​ ​and ​ ​KVO ​ ​just ​ ​by ​ ​using the ​ ​signals.

8 ​ ​– ​ ​iRate What’s ​ ​the ​ ​best ​ ​way ​ ​to ​ ​get ​ ​more ​ ​reviews ​ ​in ​ ​the ​ ​App ​ ​Store It’s ​ ​simple ​ ​– ​ ​​Ask ​ ​the ​ ​User ​. It ​ ​may ​ ​sound ​ ​like ​ ​an ​ ​old-school ​ ​way ​ ​but ​ ​most ​ ​developers ​ ​still ​ ​implement ​ ​custom ​ ​in-app ​ ​alerts ​ ​to collect ​ ​reviews ​ ​from ​ ​their ​ ​app ​ ​users. ​ ​Now ​ ​if ​ ​you ​ ​don’t ​ ​really ​ ​have ​ ​time ​ ​or ​ ​wish ​ ​not ​ ​to ​ ​create everything ​ ​from ​ ​scratch ​ ​then ​ ​iRate ​ ​is ​ ​the ​ ​best ​ ​option. iRate ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​small ​ ​iOS ​ ​library ​ ​that ​ ​you ​ ​can ​ ​use ​ ​in ​ ​your ​ ​project ​ ​and ​ ​forget ​ ​about ​ ​asking ​ ​users ​ ​for review. ​ ​iRate ​ ​will ​ ​do ​ ​it ​ ​for ​ ​you ​ ​at ​ ​proper ​ ​time. ​ ​And ​ ​if ​ ​you ​ ​want ​ ​to ​ ​learn ​ ​how ​ ​to ​ ​implement ​ ​iRate library ​ ​just ​ ​check ​ ​out ​ ​our ​ ​iOS ​ ​tutorial ​ ​on ​ ​– ​ ​​How ​ ​to ​ ​Add ​ ​“Rate ​ ​This ​ ​App” ​ ​Feature ​ ​in ​ ​Your ​ ​iPhone App ​ ​to ​ ​Increase ​ ​Your ​ ​App ​ ​Ratings ​.

slide 12:

9 ​ ​– ​ ​RETableViewManager RETableViewManager ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​powerful ​ ​data-driven ​ ​content ​ ​manager ​ ​for ​ ​UITableView. It ​ ​allows ​ ​developers ​ ​to ​ ​manage ​ ​the ​ ​content ​ ​of ​ ​any ​ ​UITableView ​ ​with ​ ​ease ​ ​both ​ ​forms ​ ​and ​ ​lists. RETableViewManager ​ ​is ​ ​built ​ ​on ​ ​top ​ ​of ​ ​reusable ​ ​cells ​ ​technique ​ ​and ​ ​provides ​ ​APIs ​ ​for ​ ​mapping any ​ ​object ​ ​class ​ ​to ​ ​any ​ ​custom ​ ​cell ​ ​subclass. The ​ ​general ​ ​idea ​ ​is ​ ​to ​ ​allow ​ ​developers ​ ​to ​ ​use ​ ​their ​ ​own ​ ​UITableView ​ ​and UITableViewController ​ ​instances ​ ​and ​ ​even ​ ​subclasses ​ ​providing ​ ​a ​ ​layer ​ ​that ​ ​synchronizes data ​ ​with ​ ​the ​ ​cell ​ ​appearance. ​ ​It ​ ​fully ​ ​implements ​ ​UITableViewDelegate ​ ​and UITableViewDataSource ​ ​protocols ​ ​so ​ ​you ​ ​don’t ​ ​have ​ ​to. It ​ ​deliver ​ ​us ​ ​predefined ​ ​cells ​ ​for ​ ​bools ​ ​texts ​ ​dates ​ ​etc. ​ ​but ​ ​developers ​ ​can ​ ​also ​ ​create ​ ​their own ​ ​custom ​ ​views ​ ​and ​ ​use ​ ​them ​ ​along ​ ​with ​ ​the ​ ​default ​ ​ones.
