This is a class browser for the Objective-C runtime on Mac OS X. It gives you full access to all classes loaded in the runtime; allows you to dynamically load new modules and their classes; shows every method implemented on each class; and displays information in a header (.h) file format.
If you have an open source library that requires Automatic Reference Counting (ARC), you may have issues with your users trying to build it without ARC turned on. Luckily, it’s pretty simple to enforce ARC.
The Extended Objective-C library extends the dynamism of the Objective-C programming language to support additional patterns present in other dynamic programming languages (including those that are not necessarily object-oriented).
libextobjc is meant to be very modular – most of its classes and modules can be used with no more than one or two dependencies.
I fixed a rather nasty bug today in AspectObjectiveC. One particular unit test would crash with EXC_BAD_ACCESS every time. After learning far more about registers and ABIs than I ever wanted to know (thanks, Greg Parker), it dawned on me that performSelector: was corrupting memory. It was particularly hard to track down because the crash would happen a couple of lines after the call to performSelector:, when the corrupted memory was actually accessed.
Blocks in C and Objective-C are downright magical. They make coding easier
and potentially quicker, not to mention faster on the front end with multithreading
and Grand Central Dispatch. BlocksKit hopes to facilitate this kind of programming
by removing some of the annoying - and, in some cases, impeding - limits on
coding with blocks.
BlocksKit is a framework and static library for iOS 4.0+ and Mac OS X 10.6+.
