Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks.

You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:

$ brew update
$ brew install carthage

To integrate CariocaMenu into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile:

github "arn00s/cariocamenu"

Run carthage to build the framework and drag the built cariocaframework.framework into your Xcode project.


If you prefer, you can integrate CariocaMenu into your project manually.

Source File

Simply add the CariocaMenu.swift source file directly into your project.


Creating your menu

import CariocaMenu

//Initialise the tableviewcontroller of the menu
let menuCtrl = self.storyboard?.instantiateViewControllerWithIdentifier("MyMenu") as! MyMenuContentController
//Set the tableviewcontroller for the menu
menu = CariocaMenu(menuController: menuCtrl)

Adding it to a view



A boomerang always comes back to it's original place (in theory). By default, the boomerang is set to None. It means that the menu will stay where the user let it. The two other boomerang options are :

  • Vertical : Will always come back at the same vertical position, but on the edge the user has chosen.
menu.boomerang = .Vertical
  • VerticalAndHorizontal : Will always come back at the same position (vertical + same screen edge)
menu.boomerang = .VerticalAndHorizontal


  • Support rotation
  • Add a live tutorial to indicate users how to get the most of this menu
  • Unit tests / UIAutomation Tests
  • Check support for Objective-C projects
  • Add emoji support instead of the menu images
  • Add live background update when preselecting a menu item. The goal is to preview the preselected view before selection (with a blur effect)

Why should I use CariocaMenu?

You're starting a new iOS app, and you want to innovate on the user experience.

Why the name CariocaMenu?

I didn't want to use the same naming convention that EVERYONE uses. I could have named it ASSuperCoolMenu, but it sucks. A Carioca is someone who lives in Rio de Janeiro. I lived there for two months, and I had this menu idea while walking on the beach 😁
