UPDATED: The Swift 3 Cheatsheet
Why learn by heart if you can cheat? Grab this cheatsheet for Swift 3, including common syntax for primitives, basic classes, closures, error handling and more!
Swift 3 has recently been released and it’s the first major open-source iteration of the popular programming language for the Apple ecosystem (iOS, tvOS, watchOS and macOS).
The language update introduced a few big changes, making this version of Swift the best yet. Including:
- Omit needless words. No more
stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString ..., just
- Consistent use of English grammar for methods that return vs. change in-place.
- No more
NSprefix for basic classes – bye-bye NeXTSTEP!
- Consistent lowerCamelCase for properties, methods and structs.
- Together with the first point – all function arguments now have labels!
I seriously think v. 3 is the first real gamechanger since Swift’s initial launch. Read up on all changes, here.
In This Cheatsheet…
Compared to the previous version of the cheatsheet, a lot has changed. It’s expanded, made clearer, upgraded and updated. Dare I say it’s the most Swifty edition yet?
Including syntax examples for:
- Control flow
- Guard & Defer
- Error Handling
Pin the cheatsheet to your desktop – don’t print it out – and use it for your next Swift project. Learning how to Swift? Use the cheatsheet to improve your expertise and retention of basic Swift concepts, and practice your skill.
