Discussion on: Total failure of Xcode Storyboards

I am finding myself annoyed at how convoluted it makes the process. It's ironic that the native UIKit is set up in such a way that it makes programmatic construction of views difficult; whereas frameworks like React etc are done entirely in code.

User interfaces are always the most problematic in my opinion (from my experience with Qt, WPF, WinForms, UIKit or even HTML/CSS/JS). Unfortunately I don't have experience with coding user interfaces aka React style. The same style is in SwiftUI and Flutter. I'm going to try it to have comparison. But I'm afraid that there is only different notation and still the same troubles. I hope SwiftUI is not just reinventing the wheel. However UIKit can be used entirely in code too. I'm going to present a good and universal way of coding programatic views in UIKit.
