Basic animations in SwiftUI

Animations in SwiftUI SwiftUI provides a simple and intuitive way to add animations to your applications. In this article, we'll explore the basics of animations in SwiftUI and how to add them to your app. What are animations in SwiftUI?

Searching for a String in Java 8

Java 8 introduced a lot of functional programming features and one of them is the stream() method which allows us to manipulate collections in a functional way. In this article, we’ll see how we can use the stream() method and the anyMatch() method to search for a string in a list of strings and return true if any of the strings in the list are present in the source string. First, let's write the method to do the search: import java.util.List; public class Main { public static boolean containsString(String source, List targets) { return -> source.contains(target)); } } The containsString() method takes two arguments: source which is the string that we want to search in, and targets which is the list of strings that we want to search for. The method returns a boolean value indicating whether any of the strings in the list are present in the source string. To use the containsString() method, we need to call it and pass in the source
