What is Weather ?
Weather is a simple app that displays weather in SwiftUI. I saw a lot of tutorials on the web, that shows very basic feature of SwiftUI. I tried to combine all of them in one simple app to demonstrate how SwiftUI works. It shows asynchronous data fetch, binding and how to build user interfaces with SwiftUI.
Weather uses the Dark Sky API to fetch weather data. To run this app, you'll need a Dark Sky API key. This is entirely free. To do so :
- Create your account here and get your Dark Sky API key.
- Open the project, and go to the
static let darkSky: String = ""by your key.
If you want to add new cities to the app, you'll need a free Google Places API key. This is an optional feature so you don't need this key to get a preview of this app. To get one, follow the instructions on the official Google documentation. Dont forget to activate the Google Places API on your project in the Google Cloud Console.
Once you get your key :
- Go to the
static let googleMaps: String = ""by your key.
Weather requires Xcode 11.0 and iOS 13.0.
This app has some issues probably due to SwiftUI currently being in beta. The layout of the app can be buggy at times. If you find bugs involving SwiftUI, report them to Apple as soon as possible.
Feel free to contribute to this very basic project. This will help us to better understand SwiftUI and how to use it as a starting point.
