CocoaPods

You can install ZLBalancedFlowLayout through CocoaPods adding the following to your Podfile:

pod 'ZLBalancedFlowLayout'

CocoaPods' support for swift is still pre-released, and requires your iOS deployment target to be 8.0 or later:

[sudo] gem install cocoapods --pre

Usage

Checkout the demo app for an example.

ZLBalancedFlowLayout supports all properties of UICollectionViewFlowLayout and the corresponding delegate methods, including minimumLineSpacing, minimumInteritemSpacing, sectionInset, etc.

Use rowHeight to adjust the item height.

/// The ideal row height of items in the grid
var rowHeight = CGFloat(100)

/// The option to enforce the ideal row height by changing the aspect ratio of the item if necessary.
var enforcesRowHeight = false

Benchmarks

ZLBalancedFlowLayout uses dynamic programming techniques to find the optimal partition of cells upfront. The benchmarks are based on timings of prepareLayout:
