This week I want to talk to you about home-screen widgets in iOS 14. I’ve built several widget collections for my apps, and it is a perfect time to share with you that experience. Today we will learn all about building and updating widgets with SwiftUI.
This week we will talk about another excellent UI component called OutlineGroup. Apple released OutlineGroup during the WWDC20 side-by-side with other great things, including grids, menus, and toolbars. I already covered them in my previous posts. And finally, today is time to talk about OutlineGroup and DisclosureGroup that handles the expanding behavior.
This week we will continue the series of posts about the app and scene lifecycle in SwiftUI. Today we will concentrate on scene management and the features that the new Scene protocol provides us to replace the old SceneDelegate.
One of the most important things that Apple did release this year was the native app and scene management for SwiftUI apps. This week we will understand how to manage our apps using App protocol without old AppDelegate. We will learn how to achieve the same set of features with App protocol.
This week we got another Xcode Beta that brings menus into SwiftUI world. Menus are going to replace old action sheets that have been here since iOS 8. Action sheets don’t play well with huge screens that we have nowadays. This week we will learn how to use menus to provide secondary actions or selection options in SwiftUI.
This year we saw that Apple started using SwiftUI across macOS and iOS to build notification center and widgets. Another great addition was a SwiftUI integration for frameworks that Apple provides us like MapKit and AVKit. This week we will talk about Map view that SwiftUI provides us as soon as you import both MapKit and SwiftUI.
We already covered master-detail navigation in SwiftUI on my blog. But today, I want to talk about the new three-column navigation that landed this year into iOS and macOS worlds. We will learn how to build a sidebar navigation flow by using NavigationView in SwiftUI.
Toolbar API is another excellent addition to SwiftUI this year. Usually, we use toolbars to provide available actions. Did you remember the case where you have a button outside of the navigation bar or bottom bar? This week we will learn all about the new Toolbar API.
This week I want to talk about grids in SwiftUI. It was the most expected feature. Everybody has been waiting for UICollectionView alternative in SwiftUI, and finally, it arrived this year. SwiftUI provides us LazyVGrid and LazyHGrid views that we can use to build grid-based layouts.
This week I decided to share as much as I can about data flow in SwiftUI. In this post, we will discuss the difference between @StateObject, @EnvironmentObject, and @ObservedObject property wrappers. I know that this is the most confusing topic in SwiftUI for newcomers.
