Thing you should know: Mark Boszko — my friend, co-worker, and producer of the The Omni Show — did a podcast called The Optical that dives into movie special effects, and it has some amazing guests such as Douglas Trumbull. If you like movies, you should listen to these. Read the article

Seattle Xcoders Tonight: WWDC Topics

Inessential By Anonymous on 13/06/2019 pm30 20:31:00

The Xcoders meeting tonight should be pretty great — we’ve got a bunch of lightning talks on new stuff from WWDC. It’s the Woodstock of today. In later years, more people will claim to have been at this meeting than could have fit in the room. :) Read the article

In the Sweet Setup’s review of iOS RSS readers from last May, there’s this sentence that I love: “It’s perhaps ironic that Google Reader helped popularize RSS, considering the sheer horror of its interface design.” Read the article

NetNewsWire CI, New Technote

Inessential By Anonymous on 13/06/2019 am30 07:09:00

We now have continuous integration set up for NetNewsWire. I didn’t need it for a long time, when it was just me — but now that we have multiple contributors, it’s important. We’re doing the app and the separate frameworks (RSCore, RSParser, etc.) the app uses. Thanks to circleci for the service and to Joe Heck for setting it all up! * * * Most of my work, between now and shipping, is writing. Here’s a new technote: Why Reruns Happen. * * * We have had not one single crash report since 5.0a3 shipped. :) (Yes, the app does have a crash catcher: no, we’re not relying on people finding the crash logs on disk and sending them in.)

NetNewsWire Contributing, Code of Conduct

Inessential By Anonymous on 12/06/2019 am30 07:20:00

I finally got around to two things NetNewsWire needed: 1) a page describing how to contribute, and 2) a code of conduct. They’re both on the same CONTRIBUTING.md page. If you’d like to contribute, the process is pretty straightforward. File a ticket, talk it over, write the code, do a pull request. I don’t like too much process. This seems just right. That said, I’m still learning about how to manage an open source project, and any feedback on this (and anything else) is definitely welcome. Read the article

NetNewsWire Status

Inessential By Anonymous on 11/06/2019 am30 07:23:00

We just released NetNewsWire 5.0a3. Almost all the current remaining work in the Beta milestone is writing — some tech notes and, most importantly, the Help book. What will probably happen is that we’ll run out of coding to do while I’m still writing. Which is fine — it just means Maurice can go see how much we can use of SwiftUI in the iOS app. We want to go as all-in as possible (while still making a great app). We’ll use SF Symbol too, of course. Probably Combine. All the things! (Yes, we’ll be requiring iOS 13 for the iOS app.) At any rate — the Mac app (minus documentation) is damn close to what’s going to ship. It’s just a matter of finding and fixing the...
