Actors is the new Swift language feature, making your types thread-safe. This week, we will learn how to use actors and their benefits over locks. We will also discuss actor reentrancy, the main confusing point of using actors.
Today, we will discuss thread safety, an essential programming aspect. I decided to cover this topic because of the issue I’ve noticed in the codebase I helped to build. This type of bug is straightforward to create but very hard to fix. So investing time into building a type-safe type in your codebase is much better.
We talked a lot about StoreKit 2 in this series of posts. This week, we will finalize the series by covering the set of view modifiers StoreKit 2 provides us to use in SwiftUI views.
This week we will continue the series of posts about StoreKit views in SwiftUI by covering another StoreKit view called SubscriptionStoreView. This view allows us to easily display and handle subscriptions in a single group.
We started a series of posts about StoreKit 2 last week. We learned the basics of StoreKit 2 and how easily we can monetize our apps. This week, we will continue the topic by learning about StoreKit views in SwiftUI. The StoreKit 2 introduces SwiftUI views, allowing us to quickly build paywalls or digital product shop screens.
StoreKit provides us with an opportunity to make revenue from our apps. It allows us to set up the purchase flow for in-app purchases and subscriptions. StoreKit 2 introduces a modern Swift-based API to build type-safe in-app purchases. This week we will start the series of posts about StoreKit 2.
Another feature we have been waiting for is scrolling charts. The latest version of the Swift Charts framework provides the functionality, allowing us to make any chart scroll in a few different ways. This week we will learn how to make our charts scroll, and the customization points the Swift Charts framework provides.
Swift Charts provides a lovely API allowing you to tune charts and add custom interactions within a few lines of code. The following framework iteration goes further and allows us to track chart selection in a single line of code. This week we will learn about new APIs allowing us to handle selection in Swift Charts.
This week I will talk about the state management approach I have used in my apps for years. We will cover building a predictable, testable, debuggable, and modular state management system in Swift.
Swift Foundation Formatter API is one of my favorite recent additions to the Swift ecosystem. I use it in every project and build my custom-type formatting logic using the same approach. This week we will learn how to introduce custom formatters and use them with our own types.
