Little by little…
As I was saying in the previous post, I had to plunge myself into Cocoa again and this time using Swift 3.
The tedious part is that it is hard to find any documentation other than Apple official ones – which are way too generic and very descriptive.
And even more, they removed the possibility to get them as PDF (or you have to print each group of pages and gather them yourself in one single pdf… yuck!)…
If you are looking for books, the BNR one is old, outdated and it doesn’t seem they are planning to make a new 6th edition anytime soon ;(
And all the other books you can find are even older, no very detailed and focused on Objective-C (and Cheetah!! lol).
Don’t get me wrong, I love Objective-C, I coded into Objective-C for more than 15 years and I was knowing pretty well the runtime and other intricacies (reverse engineering things again :p).
But I’m starting to have good reflexes in Swift now and – as I said – I was sold once I discovered how easy it is to include C code.
And when time allows I implement things to plug my 65xx debugger in a neat Mac OS application crafted with my little fingers!
Here are some (very early) first screenshots :
