SOLVED: SwiftUI in Playgrounds

Forums > SwiftUI

I'm really confused about the whole Playground workflow. I have an iPad, when I create a playground, it is SwiftUI only. But then when I create a Playground in Xcode on my Mac, it is only UIKit. Is it possible to create a SwiftUI playground via Xcode on the Mac?

   

I get a SwiftUI playground when I make one from my mac and I thought it was always like that

   

When you create a new Playground in Xcode, you can choose the template as either iOS or macOS. The option is in the top left corner.

Then you choose the type of Playground - Blank, Game, … which will set up the Playground with any necessary imports and base code.

   

I found my answer on this page

So I created an iOS SingleView playground and replaced the generated code with this:

import SwiftUI
import PlaygroundSupport

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        VStack {
            Text("Hello, World!")
            Spacer()
            Text("Goodbye, World!")
        }
    }
}

let view = ContentView()
PlaygroundPage.current.setLiveView(view)
