Swift Playgrounds Author Template for Xcode 13!

Swift Playgrounds Icon

Woohoo! https://developer.apple.com/download/all/?q=swift%20playgrounds

Apple’s updated the Swift Playgrounds Author Template for Xcode 13, which is huge news for people (like me) who author Swift Playground Books.

I’ve talked in the past about building playground books with the author template (the video is here). It’s a great tool for helping you build rich experiences for your students.

With this new download, you can build your playground book without having to keep Xcode 12 around. Now, the template is reliant on a certain version of Swift, so you may need to install a separate build of Swift (which you can get from here: https://www.swift.org/download/), and I’ll go into how to do that (and maybe *why*) at a later date.

In the meantime, I’ve got to go grab my copy to get cracking on a few new Swift Playground books!
