SuperStorage app

The download view downloads the file using your choice of subscription plan: silver, gold or Cloud 9.

Download data

In SuperStorageModel, locate download(file:). It already contains the code you know so well:

guard let url = URL(
string: "http://localhost:8080/files/download?\(") else {
  throw "Could not create the URL."
let (data, response) = try await url)
guard (response as? HTTPURLResponse)?.statusCode == 200 else {
  throw "The server responded with an error."
updateDownload(name:, progress: 1.0)
return data

Call download(file:)

Now, where do you call this asynchronous method? Open DownloadView. Go to its body.

fileData = try await file)
let downloadSingleAction: ()  🟩async🟥 -> Void
Task {
  fileData = try await file)
func addDownload(name: String) { ... }
func updateDownload(name: String, progress: Double) { ... }
.onDisappear {
  fileData = nil
