A multi-platform SwiftUI component for the horizontal scrolling of tabular data in compact areas

Available as an open source library to be incorporated in SwiftUI apps.

SwiftSideways is part of the OpenAlloc family of open source Swift software tools.

macOS iOS


  • Support the horizontal scrolling of wide content, such as tabular data, in compact views
  • Available as a conventional view that can wrap your content, and also as a View Modifier
  • Presently targeting macOS v11+ and iOS v14+*
  • No external dependencies!

Sideways Examples

Use with any wide content, such as List:

import SwiftUI
import Sideways

struct ContentView: View {

    var body: some View {
        List {
            Text("πŸ‡ Pinot Noir, πŸ‡ Blauburgunder, πŸ‡ SpΓ€tburgunder, πŸ‡ RulandskΓ© modrΓ©, πŸ‡ Pinot Nero")
            Text("πŸ‡ Cabernet Sauvignon, πŸ‡ Bouchet, πŸ‡ Bouche, πŸ‡ Petit-Bouchet, πŸ‡ Petit-Cabernet, πŸ‡ Petit-Vidure, πŸ‡ Vidure, πŸ‡ Sauvignon Rouge")
            Text("πŸ‡ Syrah, πŸ‡ Shiraz, πŸ‡ Hermitage, πŸ‡ Antourenein noir, πŸ‡ Candive")
            Text("πŸ‡ Gamay, πŸ‡ Gamay Noir Γ  Jus Blanc Sicily")
            Text("πŸ‡ Grenache, πŸ‡ Garnatxa negre, πŸ‡ Alicante, πŸ‡ Cannonau, πŸ‡ Garnacha tinta, πŸ‡ Grenache noir")
            Text("πŸ‡ Cabernet Franc, πŸ‡ Bouchet, πŸ‡ Bouchy, πŸ‡ Breton")
            Text("πŸ‡ Malbec, πŸ‡ Auxerrois in Cahors, πŸ‡ CΓ΄t, πŸ‡ Pressac")
            Text("πŸ‡ Merlot, πŸ‡ Saint-Macaire, πŸ‡ Picard, πŸ‡ Langon")
            Text("πŸ‡ Petit Verdot, πŸ‡ Verdot")
        .sideways(minWidth: 1200, showIndicators: true)
        .frame(width: 400)

...where the minWidth of 1200 specifies the width of your content in the scrollable region.

The frame width of 400 is the viewport size. It's explicit here, but often it's implicit and not necessary to specify.

You can also wrap your content in a Sideways view:

var body: some View {
    Sideways(minWidth: 1200) {
        List {

Or an excerpt from use with the companion component TablerList...

var body: some View {
    TablerList(header: header,
               row: row,
               results: fruits)
        .sideways(minWidth: 1200)
