Quick Demo

Setting up your Cell by implementing ConfigurableCell & ReuseIdentifierProviding.

import Sourcing

class LabelCell: UITableViewCell, ConfigurableCell {

   func configure(with label: String) {
      textLabel?.text = label


//If the reuse identifier is the same as the class name.
extension LabelCell: ReuseIdentifierProviding {}

let labelCellConfiguration = CellConfiguration<LabelCell>()
let labelsToDispay = ArrayDataProvider(sections: [["Row 1", "Row 2"], ["Row 1", "Row 2"]])
let dataSource = TableViewDataSource(dataProvider: labelsToDispay, cellConfiguration: labelCellConfiguration)

tableView.dataSource = dataSource

//Add this to sync data changes to the table view.
let changeAnimator = TableViewChangeAnimator(tableView: tableView, dataProvider: labelsToDispay)

Swift Package Manager

SPM is integrated with the Swift build system to automate the process of downloading, compiling, and linking dependencies.

Specify the following in your Package.swift:

.package(url: "", from: "4.0.0"),


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