Experiment with your code in Xcode Playground

Xcode Playgrounds is a feature in Xcode that allows developers to write and run small snippets of Swift or Objective-C code in real time without having to create a full project or build and run the app.

Its main purpose is to help developers learn, experiment, and prototype their code quickly and easily. Playgrounds allow you to see the result of your changes immediately, and it includes support for live views, debugging, and performance analysis.

Playgrounds are also used to develop Swift-based frameworks, UI components, and libraries because they allow developers to test their code in isolation. Overall, Xcode Playgrounds is a convenient tool that helps developers learn and develop efficiently.
