Parchment Overview

Parchment lets you page between view controllers while showing any type of generic indicator that scrolls along with the content. Here are some benefits of using Parchment:

  • Highly customizable
    The menu items are built using UICollectionView, which means you can display pretty much whatever you want. You can even subclass the layout to create completely custom behaviours.
  • Memory-efficient:
    Parchment only allocates view controllers when they’re needed, meaning if you have a lot of view controllers you don’t have to initialize them all up-front.
  • Infinite scrolling:
    Because view controllers are only allocated as you are scrolling, you can create data sources that are infinitely large. This is perfect for things like calendars.
