Introduction

You can easily make Text bold by using the SwiftUI .bold modifier.

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        Text("SwiftlyRush")
            .bold()
    }
}

You can now pass through a isActive boolean value for this bold modifier and this applies to many modifiers now, so you can remove those custom ones ;]

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        Text("SwiftlyRush")
            .bold(false)
    }
}

Your result here is the text won’t be bold, this is super useful if you want the state of the bold text based on data dynamically changing.
