Swift Package Manager

Add package into Xcode Project settings -> Swift Packages


pod 'DTTableViewManager', '~> 8.0.0'

Quick start

Let's say you have an array of Posts you want to display in UITableView. To quickly show them using DTTableViewManager, here's what you need to do:

  1. Create UITableViewCell subclass, let's say PostCell and adopt
class PostCell : UITableViewCell, ModelTransfer {
    func update(with model: Post) {
        // Fill your cell with actual data
  1. In your view controller:
class PostsViewController: UITableViewController, DTTableViewManageable {

override func viewDidLoad() {

    // Register PostCell to be used with this controller's table view

    // Populate datasource


Make sure your UITableView outlet is wired to your class (or use UITableViewController subclass). If you have a PostCell.xib file, it will be automatically used for dequeueing PostCell.

  1. That's it! It's that easy!

Of course, cool stuff does not stop there, framework supports all datasource and delegate methods as closures, conditional mappings and much much more! Choose what interests you in the next section of readme.
