I've been learning and creating more SwiftUI code. It's super interesting. It twists and stretches my brain in a good way. I've never been a UI programmer, so I appreciate what I can accomplish so simply. You can look at the code here, but to run the program you'd need to be an Apple Developer. Perhaps I'll publish it someday.
