Scoped animations in SwiftUI

Animations were the most powerful feature of SwiftUI from day one. You can quickly build fluid animations in SwiftUI. The only downside was how we control animations whenever we need to run multi-step animation or scope the animation to a particular part of the view hierarchy.

Visual effects in SwiftUI

During WWDC 23, SwiftUI introduced a new view modifier called visualEffect. This modifier allows us to attach a set of animatable visual effects by accessing layout information of the particular view. This week, we will learn how to use the new visualEffect view modifier in SwiftUI.

Mastering ContentUnavailableView in SwiftUI

SwiftUI introduces the new ContentUnavailableView type, allowing us to display empty, error states or any other state where content is unavailable in our apps. This week, we will learn how to use the ContentUnavailableView to guide users through empty states of your app.

Mastering Preview macro in Swift

Xcode Preview Canvas is a crucial part of my development experience. Previews have significant changes this year by introducing the new #Preview macro. This week, we will learn about using the new #Preview macro and the benefits of this approach.

Sensory feedback in SwiftUI

SwiftUI introduced the new sensoryFeedback view modifier, allowing us to play haptic feedback on all Apple platforms. This week, we will learn how to use the sensoryFeedback modifier to give haptic feedback on different actions in our apps.

Thread safety in Swift with locks

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.
