✅ Today's goal: Add a swiftUI view that lets people set the first daily push notification time

Captain's Log: 🤦‍♂️

You know that feeling when you start a new side project and you're full of optimism and everything is going well?
That's a great feeling and you can hold on to that by never starting that side project.

Things went from great to good to bad for me really quickly. I don't know where start. Yes I do: xcode.

Ah xcode, the editor everybody loves to hate, but with good reason. It's horrible. The beta is especially bad this year with the introduction of swiftUI. Everything goes smoothly until you add any ObservableObject into your app. Then the preview starts failing and never recovers. Eventually I learned that the preview is only good for quick visual tweaks and leave it off now.

There's one more thing that really grinds my gears and that's a rogue swift process spinning up my CPU fan like it's an effin' apache helicopter. Closing xcode doesn't even put a stop to it, no this process needs Rey because I had to FORCE QUIT it.

Progress Still Happened

Learning any new thing is going to cause some grumpy cat moments, but swiftUI really takes the cake. Maybe I should focus on the positive. I did get a picker working and I serialized app state to a json file, I’ll get into the nitty gritty tech stuff tomorrow
