Have I mentioned lately how awesome NSScreencast is? No? Worth the subscription. Check it out if you’re an iOS developer. Or even if you’re not and you want an example of how to do coding screencasts well.

Got tired of dead-end googling so I checked to see if @NSScreencast had covered what I was looking for. Of course he had, 4 years ago. Should have checked there first.

One 13-minute episode of @NSScreencast just paid for the yearly subscription fee in amount of time saved. Do it.

Seriously great stuff even for seasoned developers. I’ve learned a good amount from Ben’s videos.

You can really expand your development horizons in just a few minutes a week with NSScreencast.

Random PSA for iOS developers: @NSScreencast is a great resource, and worth every penny. It’s high quality, practical, and honest.

Can’t say enough good things about @NSScreencast There is gold in the Road Trip DJ Series.

I just reuppped my subscription to @NSScreencast. [An] indespensible resource if you’re into iOS or Mac Development.

Just finished @NSScreencast series on Modern CollectionViews. Strongly recommended. Programmatic UI, nicely structured code, easily approachable explanation style. 👌

    Modular Project Architecture

    If you're using CocoaPods already, then mixing with Swift Packages can prove to be infeasible. You can create your modules as internal pods as well, however there are a few gotchas. In this episode I will cover how to do this, how to link up local pods and create example projects for demo UI and running tests, as well as how to overcome some of the rough edges you might experience.

    Modular Project Architecture

    One big benefit of modularizing an application is working on features as modules. Let's re-create the welcome screen experience as a feature module using Swift Package Manager and Xcodegen.

  • #504

    Modular Project Architecture

    In this episode we create a modularized setup where our modules are Swift Packages and brought into the main app using Xcodegen and local path references to the packages.

  • #503

    Modular Project Architecture

    One thing that can be a pain when splitting modules up into separate projects is maintaining the Xcode projects themselves. Not to mention the fact that as team sizes grow, merging changes in project files gets exponentially more painful. In this episode we will look at using Xcodegen to have a repeatable project generation that you can use to create consistent Xcode projects without much fuss.

  • #502

    Modular Project Architecture

    Breaking your code into discrete modules will surface a problem if your code is tightly interconnected. Once you've defined your module boundaries you now are forced to not cause bidirectional dependencies. In this episode we will look at some strategies for breaking apart dependencies into abstractions first using protocols, then using protocol witnesses. We can then depend on those abstractions in our isolated module projects.

  • #501

    Modular Project Architecture

    One way of achieving modularization is to build frameworks using nested Xcode projects. This has the benefit of having everything in one place and can easily build the entire thing. You can also zero-in on a single project and just work from there if you want. Each sub-project can have its own tests, sample application, etc.

    Localizing Your App

    Pluralization rules vary by language, so it's not as easy as just adding an "s". To properly handle these cases, we need to use a Stringsdict file and format our string using a special syntax.

  • #498

    Localizing Your App

    Sometimes you may find that you want to localize images specific to a locale. In this episode we'll make up a contrived example where we want to change our splash image from a pizza to sushi if the locale if Japanese. We can easily do this with Asset Catalogs and provide a more tailored experience.

  • #496

    Localizing Your App

    In this episode I will show two ways you can export all of the strings in your project. The first is using Xcode, but since this is a process you'll likely want to repeat, we'll also show how to do it via the command line so you can automate it. We'll then take the xliff files and send them off for translation using a translation service.

  • #495

    Localizing Your App

    There's a bit of prep work we need to do to get our project ready to be localized. We'll start by defining which languages we want to support, localize any interface-based files like Storyboards, and then move on to localizing strings in code.

    One of my favorite new features of Xcode 13 is support for Vim key bindings. In this episode we will see how to enable this and I'll give a quick tour of how to get around using Vim.

  • #420

    Now that Swift Package Manager has started to see some adoption and we have some integration inside of Xcode, I think it's time to take a deeper look at how to use it both as a consumer and as a library author. In this episode we'll create a DiceKit library using SwiftPM, then use it in a command line utility.
