About the Book
Playgrounds offer an essential Swift learning, development, and documentation tool. They enable you to explore the Swift language, test out routines, prototype quick solutions, delve into Cocoa / Cocoa Touch APIs, and create flexible interactive documents. That's a lot of power for one minor Xcode feature and that's why this book exists. Playgrounds don't just let you tweak, test, and explore, they offer an exciting tool suite that promotes data visualization and design clarity.
Playgrounds provide instant gratification for every bit of code you type. Imagine creating fully operational code elements in just a few lines. APIs, functions, and methods spring to life, ready for testing and refinement. Apple has invested a lot of work into making these environments a fantastic touch point for language development support. If you think a playground is nothing more than a read-eval-print loop with pretentions, you're missing the point. Inline value previews, timeline exploration, rich documentation, and other highly visual elements support development beyond the level of "does this compile?" and "what value does this return?
