SwiftUI Masterclass: Building a Complete App


SwiftUI has revolutionized the way developers create user interfaces for iOS apps, offering a declarative and intuitive approach. In this masterclass, we will embark on a journey to build a feature-rich iOS app using SwiftUI. From navigation to data management and user interactions, this comprehensive guide will walk you through each step, accompanied by code examples and images.


Before we dive into the masterclass, make sure you have the following:

  1. Xcode: Install the latest version of Xcode from the App Store.
  2. SwiftUI Basics: Familiarize yourself with the basics of SwiftUI. If you’re new to SwiftUI, Apple’s official SwiftUI documentation is an excellent resource.

What is swift?

Swift is a programming language developed by Apple Inc. for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS, and Linux. Swift programming language was introduced in 2014 as a replacement for Objective-C, which had been the primary programming language for Apple’s platforms.

Setting Up the Project

Let’s start by creating a new SwiftUI project in Xcode. Open Xcode and choose “Create a new Xcode project.” Select the “iOS” tab and choose the “App” template. Set the interface to “SwiftUI” and click “Next.” Name your project and choose a location to save it. Finally, click “Create.”

Building the UI

Our app will be a task management tool with a list of tasks and the ability to add new tasks. Open the ContentView.swift file and replace the existing code with the following:

This code sets up a simple task list with the ability to add new tasks. The List displays existing tasks, and the NavigationBar allows you to add new tasks.

Adding Navigation

Now, let’s add navigation to a detailed view for each task. Create a new SwiftUI file named TaskDetailView.swift and add the following code:

Next, modify the ContentView.swift file to include navigation to the detail view. Update the ForEach block in the List:

Now, when you tap on a task, it will navigate to the detail view.

Enhancing Data Management

To make our app more robust, let’s add the ability to persist tasks using Core Data. Create a new SwiftUI file named Task+CoreDataProperties.swift with the following code:

Update the TaskDetailView.swift file to use Core Data:

Now, let’s modify the ContentView.swift file to fetch and display tasks from Core Data:

With these changes, our app now uses Core Data to store and fetch tasks.


Congratulations! You’ve completed the SwiftUI Masterclass, building a complete iOS app with features like navigation, data management, and user interactions. SwiftUI’s declarative syntax and integration with Core Data make it a powerful tool for iOS development. Continue exploring SwiftUI and incorporating more advanced features to take your app development skills to the next level.

Feel free to experiment with additional SwiftUI components and features to enhance the functionality and user experience of your app.
