SwiftUI Is Still the Future

Inessential By Anonymous 23h et 40min ago

We’ve been using SwiftUI in NetNewsWire for iOS, for its settings screen and related pieces (such as adding an account). But now we’re redoing that code in classic UIKit. Maurice Parker, NetNewsWire for iOS lead developer, lists the limitations we ran into with SwiftUI: 1) Unable to customize cell selection color for our vibrant cell selection requirement. I was able to hack around it, but it made cells behave strangely. You couldn’t tap and hold the cell. You also couldn’t scroll using the modified cells. 2) No pop back to root for NavigationView. Longer scene flows weren’t possible. 3) ActionSheet flat out just crashes if you use it on an iPad app. https://forums.developer.apple.com/thread/124530 4) TextField will crash the app if it...

NetNewsWire 5.0.3b2 is faster — and it adds the ability to import NetNewsWire 3 subscriptions. If you’re a NetNewsWire 3 user who needs to upgrade because you’re on Catalina (where NetNewsWire 3 won’t run), then I recommend either trying this beta or waiting a few days till the final 5.0.3 release.

NetNewsWire OS Compatibility Strategy

Inessential By Anonymous on 15/10/2019 am31 02:30:00

We have two goals with the app: 1) get as many people using RSS as possible, and 2) make the best app we can. To reach #2 — making the best app we can — we need to do a couple things. One is stay modern: use new APIs and tools that make the app better and easier to maintain. A second is to not spend time on things that don’t make the app better. A third is to attract and retain contributors, who are usually more psyched to work with modern stuff than with old stuff. You can see how that’s in a little bit of conflict with #1 (getting as many people as possible using RSS readers). Here’s the plan After a major OS... Read the article

Omni Job: Senior Front-End Web Developer

Inessential By Anonymous on 11/10/2019 pm31 21:30:00

Omni’s hiring a Senior Front-End Web Developer to work on OmniFocus for the Web. Omni’s a truly great place to work. You’d have your own office — and there’s a decent chance it would be right near mine. (The job is part of the Design department, and marketing is also part of the Design department.) We also have common areas too, for when you prefer to work around other people. You’re not locked into your office. :) Benefits are great. The view of Lake Union and Capitol Hill is beautiful. The kitchen folks make us wonderful food. But best of all: it’s great fun to work with these people on these apps. So — if you’re a web developer, please apply! PS You can learn more about OmniFocus... Read the article

Xcoders 15th Anniversary

Inessential By Anonymous on 07/10/2019 pm31 23:00:00

This Thursday, Oct. 10, Xcoders turns 15 years old! We’d be thrilled if you could come to the meeting. Your Xcoders podcasters will be talking to a panel of old-timers about the history of the group. And afterward we’ll go to the Cyclops and hang out — just like we always do. I don’t think I need to remind anyone of the important of community. It gives back to us so much more than we as individuals could ever put into it. And Xcoders is one of the oldest and greatest of the Mac and iOS app-making communities. Any good history of the modern Apple development ecosystem would have a chapter on Xcoders: it’s an institution, and it’s been amazing to watch it grow... Read the article

NetNewsWire 5 is all good to go with Catalina! New macOS days are super-fun. This year we get the added bonus of checking out all the new Catalyst apps. I’m psyched to see what cool apps are coming to Mac. But I can’t help but note that two apps that I’ve put my heart into — and many thousands of hours of work — won’t run on Catalina: UserLand Frontier and NetNewsWire 3.3.2. Well. I take note, and then I move on. Read the article
