Constrained existential types

Available from Swift 5.7

Paul Hudson      @twostraws

SE-0353 provides the ability to compose SE-0309 (“Unlock existentials for all protocols”) and SE-0346 (“Lightweight same-type requirements for primary associated types”) to write code such as any Sequence<String>.

It’s a huge feature in its own right, but once you understand the component parts hopefully you can see how it all fits together!

BUILD THE ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP Most Swift tutorials help you solve one specific problem, but in my Ultimate Portfolio App series I show you how to get all the best practices into a single app: architecture, testing, performance, accessibility, localization, project organization, and so much more, all while building a SwiftUI app that works on iOS, macOS and watchOS.
