YYWebImage is an efficient open-source framework for asynchronous image loading and caching. It provides a seamless way to download and display images in your iOS apps, all while maximizing performance and minimizing memory footprint.
- Asynchronous Image Loading: YYWebImage allows you to load images from URLs asynchronously, so your UI remains responsive during image loading.
- Caching Support: The framework provides built-in caching mechanisms to store images locally, reducing network requests and improving performance.
- Progressive Decoding: It supports progressively decoding images, displaying low-resolution images first and gradually improving the quality as more data is downloaded.
- Animated Image Support: YYWebImage fully supports animated image formats like GIF, APNG, and WebP, enabling you to display animated images effortlessly.
- Memory Management: The framework efficiently manages image memory usage by automatically purging the cache when the app receives a memory warning.
- Image Processing: You can modify and process images before displaying them, using features like resizing, cropping, tinting, and applying filters.
- Integration with SwiftUI: YYWebImage seamlessly integrates with SwiftUI, making it easy to implement image loading and caching in your SwiftUI-based apps.
