🙅‍♀️ Today's goal: Get the text editor working

SwiftUI TextField placeholder

Look, I'm not going to sit here and wax poetic about my 30 minutes of side project work today, I'll just go ahead and say, I didn't do what I set out to do. Having a full time job and a family is hard effin work.

Let's talk about textfields and placeholders, the only thing I did today:

screenshot of a swiftUI preview that shows in vertical order, today's day and then a picture of a sun, and text saying "What good shall I do this day?"

TextField("My good for today", text: self.$input)
    .font(.custom(font, size: 18))
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

and that's it! Oh wait, I also figured out how to format today's date:

let fmt = DateFormatter()
fmt.dateFormat = "EEEE, MMMM dd" = fmt.string(from: Date())
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

and THAT's it!
