INTERMEDIATE SWIFTUI

FREE: Creating a custom property wrapper using DynamicProperty

It’s not hard to make a basic property wrapper, but if you want one that automatically updates the body property like @State you need to do some extra work. In this article I’ll show you exactly how it’s done, as we build a property wrapper capable of reading and writing documents from our app’s container.

Understanding generics – part 1

INTERMEDIATE SWIFT

FREE: Understanding generics – part 1

Generics are one of the most powerful features of Swift, allowing us to write code once and reuse it in many ways. In this article we’ll explore how they work, why adding constraints actually helps us write more code, and how generics help solve one of the biggest problems in Swift.

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

FREE: Making your app accessible

It is my firm belief that every iOS app should be usable to everyone, and putting in the work to make your app function well no matter who is using it says a lot about the kind of developer you are.

Shadows and glows

SWIFTUI SPECIAL EFFECTS

FREE: Shadows and glows

SwiftUI gives us a modifier to make simple shadows, but if you want something more advanced such as inner shadows or glows, you need to do extra work. In this article I’ll show you how to get both those effects and more in a customizable, flexible way.

Functional programming in Swift: Introduction

FUNCTIONAL PROGRAMMING

FREE: Functional programming in Swift: Introduction

Before you dive in to the first article in this course, I want to give you a brief overview of our goals, how the content is structured, as well as a rough idea of what you can expect to find.

Making the most of optionals

23:07

ADVANCED SWIFT

FREE: Making the most of optionals

Swift’s optionals are implemented as simple enums, with just a little compiler magic sprinkled around as syntactic sugar. However, they do much more than people realize, and in this article I’m going to demonstrate some of their power features that can really help you write better code – and blow your mind along the way.

User-friendly network access

14:26

NETWORKING

FREE: User-friendly network access

Anyone can write Swift code to fetch network data, but much harder is knowing how to write code to do it respectfully. In this article we’ll look at building a considerate network stack, taking into account the user’s connection, preferences, and more.

Creating a WaveView to draw smooth waveforms

CUSTOM SWIFTUI COMPONENTS

FREE: Creating a WaveView to draw smooth waveforms

In this article I’m going to walk you through building a WaveView with SwiftUI, allowing us to create beautiful waveform-like effects to bring your user interface to life.

Trees

DATA STRUCTURES

FREE: Trees

Trees are an extraordinarily simple, extraordinarily useful data type, and in this article we’ll make a complete tree data type using Swift in just a few minutes. But rather than just stop there, we’re going to do something quite beautiful that I hope will blow your mind while teaching you something useful.

How to use phantom types in Swift

ADVANCED SWIFT

FREE: How to use phantom types in Swift

Phantom types are a powerful way to give the Swift compiler extra information about our code so that it can stop us from making mistakes. In this article I’m going to explain how they work and why you’d want them, as well as providing lots of hands-on examples you can try.

Creating a simple widget

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

Creating a simple widget

Widgets allow users to place parts of our app right on their Home Screen, which is both deeply powerful and deeply personal. In this article we’re going to start by doing all the app configuration required to make widgets function, then add a simple widget for our app to show that everything works.

ADVANCED SWIFT

Existentials and type erasure – part 2

In the first part of this tutorial we looked at the underlying problem that type erasure is trying to solve, and tried out Swift’s approach using AnySequence. In this second part we’re going to adapt Swift’s own solution to get real type erasure for our own code.
