Extract a value from the SwiftUI environment by the name of its associated EnvironmentKey (e.g. "ForegroundColorKey").

Extract a value from the SwiftUI environment by the name of its associated EnvironmentKey (e.g. "ForegroundColorKey").

Tested only in Xcode 12.0 beta 4 in the iOS simulator. May break in other environments because it uses reflection. If SwiftUI's private type hierarchy changes, it will probably stop working.

A dump of the SwiftUI.framework binary for the iOS simulator (as of Xcode 12.0 beta 2) using the swift-reflection-dump tool.

Note: I used a Swift 5.3 compiler build from a few weeks ago that I had laying around. Because of ABI stability, I don't think the swift-reflection-dump version has to match the compiler version that was used to build the binary, but I'm not 100% sure.

Demo that retaining self in a NotificationCenter observer block leads to a reference cycle you have to break manually.
View NotificationObserver.swift
// Paste into a macOS playground in Xcode and run.
// Deleting line 46 "c?.stopObserving()" triggers the assertion because
// the reference cycle caused by retaining self in the observer block is never broken.

let myNotification = NSNotification.Name(rawValue: "myNotification")

ole / KeyedContainer.swift
Created Dec 10, 2019
A property wrapper for dictionaries with keys that are raw-representable as strings. It modifies the wrapped dictionary's encoding/decoding behavior such that the dictionary is encoded as a dictionary (unkeyed container) rather than as an array (keyed container). For context, see https://oleb.net/blog/2017/12/dictionary-codable-array/
