Swift UI Project 3, Day 2

Posted on Sat 26 June 2021 in swift

Another day of 100 Days of SwiftUI today, basically applying the fundamentals we learned about yesterday.

My favorite part of it was that I got to use my new knowledge to make a custom Shape for .clipShape for a side project at work. I need a way to clip a view/color to a flag shape, and specifically to a [Swallowtail](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swallowtail_(flag) flag shape.

struct SwallowtailShape: Shape {
    let cutPercentage: CGFloat

    init(cutPercentage: CGFloat = 0.15) {
        self.cutPercentage = cutPercentage

    func path(in rect: CGRect) -> Path {
        var path = Path()

        path.move(to: CGPoint(x: rect.minX, y: rect.minY))
        path.addLine(to: CGPoint(x: rect.maxX, y: rect.minY))
        path.addLine(to: CGPoint(x: rect.maxX - (rect.maxX * cutPercentage), y: rect.midY))
        path.addLine(to: CGPoint(x: rect.maxX, y: rect.maxY))
        path.addLine(to: CGPoint(x: rect.minX, y: rect.maxY))

        return path

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
            .frame(width: 200, height: 100)

And voila:

Swallowtail Flag
