Xcode Shortcuts Cheat Sheet
Yes, these keyboard shortcuts are all listed in the Xcode menus, but seeing them listed out like this with video demonstrations was a nice reminder of some of the more subtle ways to make development faster. Thanks to Shad Rayhan Mazumder for putting this together.

Is SwiftUI missing anything important? Why yes, of course it is! Luckily, we have Vatsal Manot filling in some of the gaps with some useful extensions. I've no doubt some of these will eventually make it into the official API, but equally I'm sure Vatsal will continue to add more utility here as well!

I've been working on something new for the last few weeks, and it's time to share it. It's called the SwiftPM Library and it's a place to find libraries that support the Swift Package Manager. 📦
I wrote up plenty of detail about what it is, and why I built it in this blog post. This paragraph pretty much sums it up though:
