Always wanted to write a custom linting rule for your JavaScript project, but never been sure where to start? This guide will introduce the key concepts you need to give it a go!
Flutter is a cross-platform mobile UI framework which allows you to develop an app for Android and iOS with one codebase. But is it any good?
In this post I explore the Bindable SwiftUI Redux package I created, and explain the motivations behind using Redux for state management in SwiftUI, and the challenges faced in integrating the two frameworks.
In this post I take a closer look at how SwiftUI uses declarative syntax to construct view hierarchies, and how it transmits state updates to the UI.
In this post I look at how SwiftUI manages state with Combine, and how it compares to using React with Redux. SwiftUI is Apple's new declarative UI framework for developing UI natively, while React is a declarative UI framework for the web.
This is the first of a series of blog posts exploring SwiftUI, the new UI framework for native Apple development. This post will focus on my initial impressions, having gone through the first part of Apple's SwiftUI tutorials.
The switch statement in Swift is a powerful and expressive way of performing flow control. It pairs very nicely with a few other language features: enumerations, extensions and type inference.
SwiftUI is Apple's new UI framework for all its platforms - watchOS, tvOS, iOS and macOS. This post explores the significance of its release, comparing it to both to former native iOS development and competitor frameworks.
Swift combines the type and memory safety of a language like Java with the simplicity and ease of languages like JavaScript and Python. This article will explore some of the language features that, in my opinion, make Swift the most beautiful language to read and write.
