Over the past months, now we have labored arduous at updating our e-book Pondering in SwiftUI. Over the previous years, we had the prospect to conduct SwiftUI workshops for a lot of firms. Primarily based on this expertise and the suggestions we bought, our method to explaining SwiftUI has advanced so much. Due to this fact, we selected to do a full rewrite of the e-book to be on par with our workshops.
The overall construction nonetheless is similar to the earlier version, however the content material is model new. We put a number of emphasis on explaining view timber (which actually would be the first chapter of the e-book) on this new version, in addition to how view timber are interpreted when it comes to state, structure, animations, and extra. The e-book contains so much of recent diagrams to visualise these ideas.
After WWDC, we had been a bit torn about what to do. Ought to we put out a e-book with out mentioning all the brand new issues? This is able to be bizarre for those who can goal iOS 17 / macOS 14. But rewriting your complete e-book for iOS 17 solely can also be not an choice, as many people nonetheless should help older platforms. As an alternative, we selected to amend the present chapters with callout packing containers, stating related modifications. As well as, we’ll have a separate iOS 17 chapter in the interim. For the ultimate launch of the e-book (as soon as the brand new stuff is out of beta) we’ll attempt to combine the contents of that chapter into the remainder of the e-book.
Attributable to this transition section, we have determined to launch the brand new version as a beta model. We plan to place out the chapters one-by-one as we’re integrating new iOS 17 subjects. Throughout this prerelease section, we’re additionally internet hosting a weekly Q&A stay stream. The first stay stream shall be in the present day (Friday June sixteenth) at 18:00 GMT+1 (9am PST). You’ll be able to submit any questions you’ve got for us over at this Github repository.
Till now now we have up to date all of our books free of charge ever since we began objc.io (over ten years in the past!). Since this replace of Pondering in SwiftUI just isn’t an incremental one, however an entire rewrite from the bottom up, we have determined to launch it as a brand new product – the prelease model is offered now. Nevertheless, when you have beforehand purchased our e-book and may’t afford the replace, or have purchased the e-book very just lately, simply ship us an e mail and we’ll get you a free replace.
