Floating Controls View
AppStore JSON APIs
For today's lesson, we'll go over how to create the floating controls view at the bottom of our fullscreen controller. Laying out everything is pretty straightforward. Adding our blur shimmer effect is also quite easy by using a UIVisualEffectView component. In the next lesson, we'll discuss how to animate the view up and down using a UIViewPropertyAnimator. Enjoy

I was wondering how long usually does it takes for an major change in iOS development - like SwiftUI - to be the defacto method for development. I've already done some test projects with it and since i come from the ReactNative world, i found it pretty simillar. but my main apps that i'm releasing this year, i'm still gonna use UIKit. What is your take in this transitioning?

Brian will probably have better insight into this, but my guess that (and I've heard Brian say) that UIKit will be around for years to come. I've taken a few SwiftUI courses, and found that it can be faster in some ways, but also super frustrating with nested elements that are hard to read, with XCode being really buggy still, and also you're pretty constrained to a few layouts. It's probably okay for many apps, but I've worked with a few projects where UIKit and stackviews were just so much clearer, it seemed.
