Today I want to continue the topic of UI testing in Swift by covering another great set of tools the XCTest framework provides us. I love UI testing and protecting the primary user flows in my app. This week we will talk about the hidden gems of the XCTest framework, which are activities and attachments.
In Swift, we can do performance testing using the XCTest framework, which is a part of the Xcode development environment. XCTest provides a comprehensive set of tools for writing, running, and analyzing unit and performance tests for Swift applications. This week we will learn how to do performance testing in Swift using the XCTest framework.
The last but not least post in the series is about accessibility. It is essential to make your app accessible to VoiceOver users. Usually, it is much harder to make your visual content accessible. Fortunately, Apple provides audio graph features allowing us to make any chart representable with sound. This week we will learn how to improve the accessibility of our graphs using the Swift Charts framework.
Last week we started the topic of the Swift Charts framework customization options using a bunch of chart view modifiers. It is a vast topic that I divide into a few small posts. This week we will discuss configuring the legend view using the new Swift Charts framework.
The Swift Charts framework became a huge topic on my blog. But I decided to continue this subject to cover everything I’ve experienced with the Charts framework. This week we will learn how to customize the Chart view using a bunch of chart view modifiers provided by the framework.
The Swift Charts framework provides excellent functionality for implementing super custom charts. This week we will learn how to handle user input with gestures to build interactive charts. The Chart type is a simple SwiftUI view, which means you can attach gestures and buttons to interact with the chart.
The Swift Charts framework is an excellent example of composition. In the previous posts, we saw how we could use different marks on the same chart view to plot different data points. This week we will learn how to use composition to build new custom mark types and reuse them across the app.
Last week we started a series of posts about the new Charts framework available on the latest Apple platforms. We talked about basic stuff and learned how to plot data. This week we will continue mastering the Charts framework by learning different customization and styling options available.
Swift Charts is a new framework by Apple allowing us to visualize our data in a declarative way using SwiftUI. The Swift Charts framework inherits from SwiftUI its declarative nature and the power of intelligent defaults. This week we will start with the basics of the Charts framework.
2022 has come to an end, and it is a perfect time for retrospective analysis. Today I want to review trends in iOS development over the past year that I notice while building my own apps or consulting others.
