The very first motion picture was filmed on this day in 1888 by Louis Le Prince. It was a groundbreaking new paradigm to display visual information. Every so often, we figure out new and better ways to create and maintain user interfaces on difference devices from laptops to watches and phones. This is one of those times.
If you program in the Apple ecosystem, you need to catch up and level up with A SwiftUI Kickstart, now available from pragprog.com/titles/d-dsswiftui.
Come and get it!
A SwiftUI Kickstart: Introducing the SwiftUI User Interface Framework
SwiftUI takes advantage of the best of the Swift Programming language to allow you to build complicated interfaces from lightweight, composable, modifiable, and disposable views such as Text, Image, and Shapes.
This book shows you how to get the most out of these fundamental building blocks and the components you’ll use to compose them including VStack, HStack, ZStack, and GeometryReader.
You'll accept user input from Buttons, TextFields, Pickers, and Sliders and then flow the data through your app using ordinary properties, State, Bindings, ObservedObjects, StateObjects, and EnvironmentObjects.
You’ll fit a ton of information onto a screen using ScrollViews, Lists, and Grids as well as Expanding Lists and DisclosureGroups. One screen is never enough, so you’ll build navigation into your apps using Sheets, TabViews, and NavigationViews.
A SwiftUI Kickstart introduces you to the lightweight, value-typed, declarative world of SwiftUI.
Now available from pragprog.com/titles/d-dsswiftui.
This work was written and produced entirely by the author. It has been updated to include the latest version of SwiftUI targeting Xcode 12 and iOS 14, all of which were released just weeks ago. We are proud to be distributing it.
