About Sheeeeeeeeet

Sheeeeeeeeet helps you create menus that can be used as context menus and action sheets. It comes with many item types (standard items, buttons, titles, toggles etc.) and can be extended with custom ones.

Sheeeeeeeeet action sheets can be styled to look just like a UIAlertController or completely different. You can also customize how they are presented and dismissed.

Sheeeeeeeeet 3 migration guide

Sheeeeeeeeet 3 contains many breaking changes, but once you understand the model changes, you will hopefully see the improvements it brings and be able to migrate your apps pretty easily. See this migration guide for help.


Swift Package Manager

The easiest way to add Sheeeeeeeeet to your project in Xcode 11 is to use Swift Package Manager:



pod "Sheeeeeeeeet"


github "danielsaidi/Sheeeeeeeeet"

Manual installation

To add Sheeeeeeeeet to your app without a dependency manager, clone this repository, add Sheeeeeeeeet.xcodeproj to your project and Sheeeeeeeeet.framework as an embedded app binary and target dependency.

Creating a menu

With Sheeeeeeeeet, you start off by creating a menu, like this:

let item1 = MenuItem(title: "Int", value: 1)
let item2 = MenuItem(title: "Car", value: Car())
let button = OkButton(title: "OK")
let items = [item1, item2, button]
let menu = Menu(title: "Select a type", items: items)

There are many built-in menu item types, e.g. regular and selectable items, links, buttons, titles, collections, custom items etc. You find a complete list in this item guide.

Present the menu as an action sheet

You can present the menu as a custom action sheet or use it to create an action sheet, which you can then configure in any way you want, for instance:

menu.presentAsActionSheet(in: vc, from: view, action: ...)

You can find more information and options in this action sheet guide. You can also read more about styling the sheets in this appearance and styling guide.

Add the menu as a context menu

You can also add the menu as an iOS 13 context menu to any view you like, for instance:

let delegate = menu.addAsContextMenu(to: view, action: ...)

You can find more information in this context menu guide.

Present the menu as an alert controller

You can also present the menu as a UIAlertController, for instance:

let delegate = menu.presentAsAlertController(in: self, from: view, action: ...)

You can find more information in [this alert controller guide][Alert-Controllers].

Advanced example

When you have the basics under control, check out this advanced example to see how you can take things further.

Demo App

This repository contains a demo app that demonstrates different menus and menu items, including subclassing and appearance adjustments. To try it out, open and run the Sheeeeeeeeet.xcodeproj project.

3.0.3 - Oct 12, 2019

This version fixes some subtitle problems, where section titles and mutli select toggles didn't display their subtitles. It also fixes some behavior issues, where subtitles were incorrectly tinted.

3.0.2 - Oct 10, 2019

This version adjusts the popover height calculations to include the height of a visible header. This solves the problem where the popover content would always scroll when a header was used.

The version also adjusts the item height calculations, so that you no longer have to register a height for each item. This solves the problem with all items getting a zero size by default. Now, height is recursively resolved to the closest parent height if you haven't overridden appearance().height for your custom item.

3.0.1 - Oct 10, 2019

This version adjusts the subtitle style to use subtitle instead of value1.

It also adds a new preferredActionSheetCellStyle property to MenuItem, which you can override for your custom items.

3.0.0 - Sep 30, 2019

This version separates the menu data model from the custom action sheet implementation, so that you can create menus without caring about how they will be presented.

The new Menu type and all MenuItem types are decoupled from the presentation. This means that you can use them in more ways, for instance in custom and native action sheets, context menus etc.

With these changes, you now create an ActionSheet with a Menu instead of with a list of ActionSheetItem. Due to this, the 3.0 release of Sheeeeeeeeet has many breaking changes:

  • All ActionSheetItem have been replaced by the new MenuItem types. Most of these items have the same name as the old ones, but without the ActionSheet prefix.
  • ActionSheetDangerButton corresponds to the new DestructiveButton class.
  • ActionSheetCustomItemContentCell has been moved and renamed to CustomItemType.
  • ActionSheetCollectionItemContentCell has been moved and renamed to CollectionItemType.

There are also some breaking changes that involve how you work with action sheets:

  • Item heights are no longer static, but an action sheet cell appearance proxy property.
  • The action sheet header behavior is now specified in a headerViewConfiguration property.
  • CustomItem (ActionSheetCustomItem) has been made non-generic.
  • isOkButton and isCancelButton is gone. Use type checking instead, e.g. is OkButton.

Bonus features:

  • The popover presenter now supports header views. It no longer hides the header by default.
  • Menu can be presented as a custom action sheet, without creating an ActionSheet.
  • Menu can be used to create action sheets, which you then present and configure like before.
  • Menu can be added as an iOS 13 context menu to any view.
  • Menu can be presented as a native UIAlertController.

Some of the presentations above require that all items in the menu can be represented in that context.

2.1.4 - Sep 25, 2019

This version makes Package use https references instead of ssh.
