Elevate SwiftUI Skills by Building Projects

By: Frahaan Hussain

Overview of this book

Elevate SwiftUI Skills by Building Projects helps you harness the cutting-edge potential of SwiftUI and its innovative and user-friendly approach to crafting user interfaces for Apple platforms with the power of Swift. This book will enhance your UI programming skills with SwiftUI through a project-based methodology, guiding you to create four real-world projects. Starting with a quick recap of Swift and SwiftUI, you’ll gradually develop projects tailored for iPhone, iPad, macOS, and watchOS using Swift and Xcode. You’ll experience SwiftUI’s versatility in action as you build a tax calculator for iPhone and a photo gallery for the iPad, which uses a larger display to enhance the viewing experience. You’ll also create an app store for Mac and, finally, get to grips with the power of SwiftUI for smaller devices such as the Apple Watch by designing a Fitness Companion app. By the end of this book, you'll have built fully functional projects across multiple platforms and gained the expertise needed to excel as a professional SwiftUI developer.

In this chapter, we will work on implementing the main body for the App Store project. In the previous chapter, we looked at the design of the App Store and more specifically the SideBar design. Then, we broke the SideBar down into all the necessary components required for our application requirements. We then implemented all the components using SwiftUI. At the end of the previous chapter, we only had a SideBar with some optional event tracking, but no content in the main body. The main section will be scrollable and showcase apps using icons and banners. Now we will analyze the main body, break it down into all the components it comprises, and implement all the components to provide an app store-like feel.

This chapter will be split into the following sections:

  • Main body overview
  • Implementing the main body
  • Extra Tasks

By the end of this chapter, you will have created an app store template with a scrollable view to showcase...
