Apple’s latest framework, SwiftUI, has taken the iOS development world by storm.

SwiftUI is an innovative, exceptionally simple way to build user interfaces across all Apple platforms with the power of Swift.

Build user interfaces for any Apple device using just one set of tools and APIs. With a declarative Swift syntax that’s easy to read and natural to write, SwiftUI works seamlessly with new Xcode design tools to keep your code and design perfectly in sync.

Automatic support for Dynamic Type, Dark Mode, localization, and accessibility means your first line of SwiftUI code is already the most powerful UI code you’ve ever written.

If you have started working with it or using it for your hobby projects, here are five amazing open source projects to take inspiration from.

1. MovieSwiftUI by Thomas Ricouard
