Creating a WaveView to draw smooth waveforms

32:08

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.

How to use phantom types in Swift

24:11

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.

Making your app accessible

33:12

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.

Trees

31:55

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.

Ultimate Portfolio App: Introduction

14:17

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

FREE: Ultimate Portfolio App: Introduction

While I’m sure you’re keen to get started programming immediately, please give me a few minutes to outline the goals of this course and explain why it’s different from other courses I’ve written.

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.

Understanding generics – part 1

20:01

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.

Creating a custom property wrapper using DynamicProperty

14:20

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.

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.

Using memoization to speed up slow functions

36:18

HIGH-PERFORMANCE APPS

FREE: Using memoization to speed up slow functions

In this article you’ll learn how memoization can dramatically boost the performance of slow functions, and how easy Swift makes it thanks to its generics and closures.

Shadows and glows

19:50

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.

Custom sorting for items

56:13

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

Custom sorting for items

Our default sort for project items works well enough, but with a little extra work we can let users choose how to sort them. In this article I’m going to walk you through several different ways of approaching this problem, some that I think work well, and others not so much…

Creating a FilteringList to filter a list using text input

27:34

CUSTOM SWIFTUI COMPONENTS

Creating a FilteringList to filter a list using text input

Many apps show lots of data in a list, and allow users to filter that list by typing in a text view. In this article we’re going to build that in SwiftUI, then pull it out into a reusable component you can apply anywhere.

Editing items

17:24

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

Editing items

Our next step is to build a simple form so the user can edit items, which in itself isn’t too hard. However, along the way I want to show you some useful tips for tracking changes and updating the UI – it’s not quite as straightforward as you might expect.

Uploading Codable data

27:13

NETWORKING

Uploading Codable data

In a previous article we already looked at a great way to download data using Combine, but in this article we’re going to examine the other side of the problem: uploading Codable data. Apple’s API here is a little gnarly, so I’m going to show you how to wrap it in a neat container using generics and Result.

Customizing ProgressView using ProgressViewStyle

15:06

INTERMEDIATE SWIFTUI

Customizing ProgressView using ProgressViewStyle

SwiftUI’s ProgressView gives us control over showing determinate or indeterminate progress, but it’s a bit dull – just a thin line and an activity spinner. Fortunately, we also get the ProgressViewStyle protocol so we can build entirely custom progress views, and in this article I’ll show you how it’s done.

Editing projects

19:02

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

Editing projects

Editing projects is much like editing items, but because a good portfolio project should show off a range of skills we’re going to bring in grids, alerts, tap gestures, and more.

Creating a particle system in SwiftUI

56:53

SWIFTUI SPECIAL EFFECTS

Creating a particle system in SwiftUI

Particle systems let us create special effects such as confetti, fire, smoke, rain, and snow, all by adjusting a range of inputs. In this article we’re going to build our own particle system entirely driven by SwiftUI, so you can easily add some sparkle to your apps.

Testing Core Data

26:18

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

Testing Core Data

Our app relies extensively on user data, so if there’s one part of it that absolutely must be bullet proof it’s our Core Data stack. In this article we’ll explore writing tests for our data, including projects, items, and awards.

Creating a LongPressButton to trigger after delay

In this article I’m going to walk you through building a LongPressButton with SwiftUI, which will requires users to press and hold for a second before it’s triggered.
