Overview of this book

Released by Apple during WWDC 2019, SwiftUI provides an innovative and exceptionally simple way to build user interfaces for all Apple platforms with the power of Swift. This practical guide involves six real-world projects built from scratch, with two projects each for iPhone, iPad, and watchOS, built using Swift programming and Xcode. Starting with the basics of SwiftUI, you’ll gradually delve into building these projects. You’ll learn the fundamental concepts of SwiftUI by working with views, layouts, and dynamic types. This SwiftUI book will also help you get hands-on with declarative programming for building apps that can run on multiple platforms. Throughout the book, you’ll work on a chart app (watchOS), NBA draft app (watchOS), financial app (iPhone), Tesla form app (iPhone), sports news app (iPad), and shoe point-of-sale system (iPad), which will enable you to understand the core elements of a SwiftUI project. By the end of the book, you’ll have built fully functional projects for multiple platforms and gained the knowledge required to become a professional SwiftUI developer.

Chapter 3: NBA Draft – Watch App

Anyone that knows me knows that I am a huge sports fan. My first love is basketball. I have played and watched basketball for as long as I can remember. When I first decided to write this book, I knew that making a basketball app was going to happen. I built an NFL watch app for the New England Patriots, but I never got around to doing one for the NBA, so here we are. We are going to build a watch app in this chapter. We'll work off a custom design, which means we will set up our app to use custom colors and fonts.

There might be a lot thrown at you in this chapter, so take your time—a lot of these same techniques are used throughout the book. The more we do, the more comfortable you should get.

In this chapter, we'll work with the following:

  • SwiftUI design in watchOS
  • Custom list view background
  • View modifiers
  • Loading data from a property list
  • Digital crown scrolling
