About this project

This was my capstone project at the end of my five-month, full-time Epicodus bootcamp. I created a reading log iOS app inspired by Goodreads. Part of my goal was to get experience with the native iOS toolchain, so I wrote this app completely in SwiftUI.

MVP

  • The app must compile and run on iOS
  • The app must store a collection of books
  • The user must have CRUD control over that collection of books

Technologies Used

  • Xcode: Apple’s IDE
  • Swift: Apple-crafted open-source language
  • SwiftUI: Apple’s next generation declarative UI framework

Using the App

  • Start by making sure that Xcode is installed and updated. This requires a computer that runs MacOS.
  • Download this repository.
  • Open the project in Xcode, then make sure you change the developer setting to your own AppleID or developer account.
  • Choose a deployment target or simulator, then run build.

Development Roadmap

As much fun as I had creating this app concept, I will not be continuing to develop it. I think SwiftUI is the future because the declarative paradigm has so many advantages in a multi-device, multiplatform world. As it stands, it's just too difficult for a new to iOS developer to use. I plan to continue learning Swift and iOS development by starting with UIKit based courses before coming back to SwiftUI.

Acknowledgements

Thank you to my partner, Alex, for support in all ways. Thank you to my parents for encouraging technology exploration, even when resources were scarce. Thank you to the Kohlenberg Foundation for making all of this possible.
