I talked about how I’m an evil person and part of the growing effort of destroying the web @hmans.io likes before (as if my recent Coffee machine post wasn’t terrible enough). I haven’t said what I was working on, or really, what the company I work for is working on, but now it’s released and I can finally talk about it: It being a social network. Or better put, yet another social network.
After writing about my thoughts on the CLion 1.0 release, I figured it’s only fair if I now also write about the new 1.1 EAP which Jetbrains released yesterday. I’ve only tested it for about an hour, but, I’m very very pleased with it! The parser
The parser got some major improvements! It’s still not a Clang but something home cooked, but boy did they put some serious effort into it.
Guys, guys, guys… I have been working on a project for a couple of weekends now and to make a long story short it’s a watchface and watchapp generator for the Pebble Time for iOS. The basic idea is that it allows putting watchfaces/watchapps together easily and then deploying them on the Pebble that is attached to the iOS device.
Here is a video of the whole thing in action, note that the iPad simulator uses US keyboard layout and I only have my German one, so, yeah, you can watch me stumble over the keyboard quite a bit at times:
I bought CLion after sporadically using it in during the EAP phase. I’ve been using Xcode and Visual Studio as IDE of choice so far on OS X and Windows, and both are great, but when developing a cross platform library like Rayne it definitely was a pain to keep both project files in sync. CLion promises to not have that issue, be cross platform AND allow me to use one single build system: CMake.
Testflight has seemingly no interest in its regular business anymore and broke the crashreport symbolication a long time ago. We are quite dependent on that though, we don’t want to know how many times the app crashed but where it crashed. So, a week and a bit ago we jumped ship to Crashlytics, which is a really nice platform to analyze crashes. The only issue is that their dSYM upload requires a run script build phase, so their upload script runs as part of the build process.
