Benchmark the performances of various Swift layout frameworks (autolayout, UIStackView, PinLayout, LayoutKit, FlexLayout, Yoga, ...)
Benchmark the performances of various Swift layout frameworks.
This project is a spin-off of the excellent LayoutKit benchmark. The benchmark has been extracted to add other iOS layout frameworks and to compare them.
Choosing the right layout framework for your project is an important decision. The frameworks API is quite important, but its performance is also important. To help you with that decision, this benchmark compare different layout frameworks.
This chart display a general comparison between device performance using each layout frameworks. It displays the performance when layouting UICollectionView cells. This graph shows performance when layouting 100 UICollectionView cells.
The Y axis indicates the number of seconds to render all cells.
The benchmark currently includes the following layout frameworks: (ordered alphabetically and use the framework GitHub's description):
Auto layout Apple's auto layout constraints. Auto layout benchmark's source code
Manual layout Layout is done by setting UIView's frame property directly. This implementation comes directly from the LayoutKit benchmark. Manual layout benchmark's source code
UIStackViews Apple's UIStackViews. UIStackViews benchmark's source code
Yoga Yoga's performance hasn't been tested directly, but FlexLayout has. FlexLayout is a light Swift interface for Yoga.
📌 Anyone who would like to integrate any other layout frameworks to this GitHub project is welcome.
The benchmark layout UICollectionView cells in multiple pass, each pass contains more cells than the previous one.
Here are the benchmark rendering results to compare visual results:
Some work would be required to adjust the layout so that they all match perfectly.
You can see the benchmark's data and charts in this Google Spreadsheet Document.
The X axis in following charts indicates the number of cells contained for each pass. The Y axis indicates the number of seconds to render all cells from one pass.
For any comments, ideas, suggestions, simply open an issue.
If you'd like to contribute by adding other layout framework, you're welcomed!
The process is currently tedious...
