WeSplit: Wrap up

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

You’ve reached the end of your first SwiftUI app: good job! We’ve covered a lot of ground, but I’ve also tried to go nice and slowly to make sure it all sinks in – we’ve got lots more to cover in future projects, so taking a little extra time now is OK.

In this project you learn about the basic structure of SwiftUI apps, how to build forms and sections, creating navigation views and navigation bar titles, how to store program state with the @State property wrapper, how to create user interface controls like TextField and Picker, and how to create views in a loop using ForEach. Even better, you have a real project to show off for your efforts.

Review what you learned

Anyone can sit through a tutorial, but it takes actual work to remember what was taught. It’s my job to make sure you take as much from these tutorials as possible, so I’ve prepared a short review to help you check your learning.

Challenge

One of the best ways to learn is to write your own code as often as possible, so here are three ways you should try extending this app to make sure you fully understand what’s going on:

  1. Add a header to the third section, saying “Amount per person”
  2. Add another section showing the total amount for the check – i.e., the original amount plus tip value, without dividing by the number of people.
  3. Change the “Number of people” picker to be a text field, making sure to use the correct keyboard type.
