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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Labels are one of the simplest views in SwiftUI, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot to explore. In this video I’ll walk you through how to build custom label styles, including adding animation effects triggered by hovering with the iOS trackpad.
Even after writing stacks of unit tests, chances are your test coverage is still well below 40%. Those units tests are really important, but if you really want great test coverage you need to add some UI tests and that’s exactly what we’re going to work on here.
Optionals are one of Swift’s most powerful features, letting us write code that is guaranteed to be safe as long as we check and unwrap them carefully. However, more often than not I prefer to avoid optionals as often as possible, and in this article I’ll outline some approaches for doing so.
In this article we’re going to look at the
compactMap() function, which is a more advanced form of
map() that adds an important second step to handle optional results. Please make sure you’ve already gone through my tutorial on
map() before continuing here!
Button view is actually capable of doing remarkable things if you take the time to customize it. In this video I’ll be walking you through the
ButtonStyle protocol, showing you how we can use it to make great-looking and reusable button effects.
Arrays and sets have their own advantages and disadvantages, but what if we could combine them both to make an ordered set? We can! And in this article that’s exactly what we’ll do.
So far our home view has simply been a host for adding test data, but that changes now: we’re going to make the home view a summary of all their project progress, plus the most important items coming up next.
We have one last easy task before we look at something trickier, which is to organize the Xcode project itself. Here I’m going to show you two different approaches so you can contrast them yourself, then explain which I prefer and why.
