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 implement the activity button screen for the Fitness Companion project. In the previous chapter, we looked at the design of Fitness Companion and, more specifically, the Current Activity screen design. Then we broke the screen down into all the components required. We then implemented all the components using SwiftUI. At the end of the previous chapter, we only had a single screen that couldn’t be swiped. The main section will be swipeable and present the user with a list of buttons for controlling the current activity. Then, we will analyze the activity button screen, break it down into all the components it is composed of, and implement all the components to provide a fitness app-like feel.

This chapter will be split into the following sections:

  • Activity button screen overview
  • Implementing the activity button screen
  • Extra tasks

By the end of this chapter, you will have created a...
