Implementing Path and Shape for Line Drawing and Pie Charts
For experienced developers, you probably have used the Core Graphics APIs to draw shapes and objects. It's a very powerful framework for you to create vector-based drawings. In SwiftUI, it also provides several vector drawing APIs for developers to draw lines and shapes.
In this chapter, you will learn how to draw lines, arcs, pie charts, and donut charts using
Path and the built-in
Shape such as
RoundedRectangle. Here are the topics I will go through with you:
- Understanding Path and how to draw a line with it
- What is the
Shapeprotocol and how to drawing a custom shape by conforming to the protocol
- How to draw a pie chart
- How to create a progress indication with an open circle
- How to draw a donut chart
Figure 1 shows you some of the shapes and charts that we will create in the later sections.
