A very simple Rick & Morty app to demo GraphQL + SwiftUI
This app have a very simple SwiftUI MVVM architecture.
Each views have its own view model which consist of running a simple GraphQL query to fetch the necassary data. Once the data is set in the
@Published property of the view model, the data will be displayed in the view. While it's fetching the data, it'll use the powerful SwiftUI
.redacted placeholder modifier to display a beautiful loading state.
All the queries are in
Queries.graphql. The file
API.swift is generated at the build time using the
schema.json of the GraphQL API of this awesome Rick & Morty API website and the
Queries.graphql file using the Apollo CLI
You you check the
run script part in the
Build Phases tab of the Xcode project.
For now you can browse characters, episodes and locations (soon). Search is coming soon.
This is all an excercice for me to play a bit with GraphQL + SwiftUI. Nothing very exciting on the UI side. The exiting part is that it's actually very little code (just the UI code + some GraphQL queries) to have the app working.
