This is a simple change that is going to go a long way to help code readability. As you know, Swift developers prefer declaring things as constants (using
let) rather than variables (using
var). But what if you made something a variable by accident? Or if you thought you might need to change it, then never do?
As of Xcode 7 and Swift 2, you'll get warnings in your code whenever you declare variables that never change – Xcode literally examines the way you use the variable and knows if you never change it.
