The macOS status bar is a powerful and convenient place to display essential information or provide quick access to your app’s functionality. By default, the status bar displays a standard system icon, but sometimes you may want to create a more customized experience by using your own views. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through how to use a custom view on the status bar in macOS using Swift and SwiftUI.
Before we get started, make sure you have the following:
The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming the way we interact with the world around us. AWS offers a robust suite of services for developing and managing IoT solutions, including the AWS IoT SDK for iOS and Android. In this detailed article, we will explore how to effectively utilize the AWS IoT SDK to create a sample iOS application that leverages MQTT protocol for sending GPS locations.
To get started, you will need the following:
An AWS account with access to AWS IoT resources.
Basic knowledge of iOS development using the Swift programming language.
Familiarity with Android development using either Java or Kotlin.
Step 1: AWS IoT Configuration:
Learn how to configure AWS IoT to establish a seamless connection between your devices and the cloud. Follow these steps:
This is my work in progress ~50cm Robotic Arm with 6 AXIS Servo motors, an Arduino and a RaspberryPi (for image recognition in phase 2):
While writing the C++ code in Arduino I found I needed a way to send easily and fast commands to Arduino with my iPhone using Bluetooth.
Basically I need to control my robotic arm using an external device instead of running and running again the code on the Arduino board.
For this reason: I’ve attached a BLE board to Arduino and I have created a simple app (completely written in SwiftUI 😍😎) that use BLE connection to connect to Arduino BLE board and send string commands that are parsed and executed.
