Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Building and Distributing a Simple App with Xcode and Swift.
- The exercise files for this course are organized by chapters. In addition to the chapters folder, there's also an assets folder. Those of you who do not have access to the exercise files will need to find a way to create these images on your own. Throughout the course I talk about what these images are, what the sizes are, and that you can create them using an image editing application such as Photoshop. The rest of the course we're going to create from scratch and the files are there for those who have access to them to fall back on in case they make a mistake.
So, if you look at Chapter 01, you're going to see a text file called "There Are No Exercise Files For This Chapter." For Chapters 02, 03, and 04, there are several different sub folders in each of the chapter folders. Each of these folders, except for creating, contain both start and final states for the corresponding movie. The reason why creating doesn't have a start state is because we create that project in the movie so there's nothing to start with. To follow along with the course click on the sub folder and then go in the appropriate start or final folder.
In there you'll see a folder called "SimpleBrowser." Inside of that folder is the Xcode project file that you need to open up to follow along. To follow along simply double click that file and Xcode will open up and with the appropriate project. If your screen looks different from mine just make sure that the appropriate item is selected on the left side of the screen in the project navigator. For example, if I'm working in a ViewController.swift that file will be highlighted.
So, you can single click the file there to follow along. If you don't have access to the exercise files don't worry. As I said earlier, other than the assets, we're creating all of these Xcode projects from scratch. The only files that you're going to need are some icon files, some button files, and an image for the launch screen. So, whether or not you have access to the exercise files you'll be able to follow along because we're going to create this application entirely from scratch so everybody can follow along.
