Provides a SwiftUI implementation of ScrollView which supports the
Currently, the only way to get pull-to-refresh behaviour in SwiftUI is to use a List. This may not always be what you want, as List has some performance issues.
The views in this package are intended for situations where you want pull-to-refresh, but
don't want to use
This package provides two implementations:
A pure SwiftUI one:
RefreshableScrollView. This works when embedded in a navigation view, and has hint flags that you can pass to help adjust the layout of the refresh control. The downside is that the precise pull-to-refresh behaviour is very slightly different from the UIKit implementation. This is because we cannot use a
UIRefreshControl, as that only works when attached to a
UIScrollView, which we don't have.
An implementation which uses UIKit:
NativeRefreshableScrollView. This uses a real UIScrollView, which contains a UIHostingController, which contains the SwiftUI content views. Doing this means that we can use
UIRefreshControlfor the activity/refresh indicator, and get the precise pull-to-refresh behaviour and appearance from UIKit. The downside is that it does not seem to play well if embedded inside a NavigationView; the positioning of the refresh control seems to change as soon as the refresh task begins, causing it to disappear, which looks rubbish.
Extras/Example for an example Xcode project which uses this package.
My FastList package is a client of this package. FastList is intended as a replacement for SwiftUI's native
in situations where you have a large number of items and SwiftUI performance struggles (because of the fancy
animations that it tries to do).
This code builds on or takes inspiration from a few examples out there, including:
- SwiftUI Lab for hints on a good SwiftUI implementation
- Jeremy Fuellert for hints on a good UIKit implementation.
Thanks to these and others for showing the way.
