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.

Extra Tasks

Now that the application is complete, here is a list of extra tasks for you to complete to enhance your application:

  • An app page, to which the user navigates when they click an app icon
  • Multiple highlight banners
  • Updating the banner to be a carousel
  • Different pages for the section in the sidebar
  • Pulling data from an array or external source such as a database for the app metadata

In the next section, we will summarize what we have covered in this chapter, but first, we will look over the code to help with the extra tasks for this project.

Search Functionality

To add search functionality to the app, you can use the .searchable modifier provided by SwiftUI. Here’s the modified code with search functionality added:
