Compile and run Apple’s SwiftNIO

Last month, I wrote a post about How to setup SwiftNIO for iOS and tvOS. Basically, I manually create all the targets in a new project, set up everything from scratch. It takes time and I wonder there is a better way? I go back to the start point, try to compile the original Swift-NIO project, finally I see how it works.

Don’t mind to use Objective-C

Since the first Swift release in 2014, It seems like Swift is a super rock star which takes over the stage. As advertising, Swift is more modern, elegant and even faster. Well, they talk it up a lot. More and more companies have decided to migrate to Swift. Many many senior developers have moved away from Objective-C. Fresh iOS developers are told to learn Swift rather than Objective-C. However, Objective-C won't be dying. It will last long for many reasons. Let's go through the following reasons which I recap in this post

Setup Swift-NIO for iOS, tvOS

I look over Swift NIO, and I see it kind of potential. Written on the top of POSIX socket. Simple, lightweight. Some parts of its core are written in C or reuse C library. It even reuses the NGNIX's HTTP parser in its core. I have found out that this parser is used widely in some well-known software and open sources. Some instances are NodeJs's parser, IBM-Swift's Kitura-net,...

Projects which use method swizzling technique

The post basically looks over some projects listed in awesome ios.¬†I do not dive deep into each project to figure out what it does with method swizzling technique. Some of them use method swizzling for writing unit tests, some use swizzling for its core logic business, etc. Data persistence Firebase¬†Firebase is Google's mobile platform that … Continue reading Projects which use method swizzling technique
