Should I learn C/C++ before getting into iOS development?

iOS Programming - 1 hour 2 min ago

I'm an intermediate developer and I know Java and Python decently well, I want to start making iOS apps and I hear Swift is a lot like the C languages. Would it be a good idea for me to jump right into Swift or learn the concepts of C first? thanks

Best way to create bar that allows table view to be sorted?

iOS Programming - 1 hour 55 min ago

I have a table view that holds a lot of data. I want to be able to provide a UI that allows users to select an image from a bar displayed above the table view that will sort the contents of the table by the icon in the selected image from the bar. So the bar might have a pounds sign, an icon for most change, icon for least change.... What would be the best way of implementing this? I have looked at a tabbed view controller, but this does not really meet these requirements and seems to be more for segueing. any help would be much appreciated so that I can be pushed into the correct direction.

Texpad 1.8.4 - LaTeX editor.

MacUpdate - Mac OS X - 5 hours 44 min ago


Texpad is a LaTeX editor designed for straightforward navigation of projects of any size. When Texpad opens a document it scans through it, looking for LaTeX structure commands and any included files, then it presents you with an outline view with which you can swiftly navigate the entire project.

Texpad replaces LaTeX's obscure console output with a table of typesetting errors. Clicking on these errors will direct you to the offending line in the LaTeX source.

Texpad's elegant single window design saves you from the clutter of windows. In even the largest projects all files are accessible from the outline view to the left of the editor. This one-window design works especially well with OS X 10.7 Lion's fullscreen mode.



Version 1.8.4:
  • Duplicate option
    • Single file Duplicate under the file menu has been restored
    • Duplicate entire project option has been added
  • Global Search
    • There is now a Case sensitivity option for Global Search, normal and Regular Expressions under the search menu accessed by clicking the magnifying glass.
    • A Regular Expression option has been moved to the search menu. You can no longer trigger Regular Expression search with enclosing slashes, you must use the menu. This is necessary because it now allows users to search for terms such as /$/ without accidentally triggering regular expression search.
  • TexpadTeX packages can automatically download when required. There is a permission option on the TexpadTeX bundle manager screen to allow this. You will be prompted the first time to do this.
  • Minor enhancements
    • Cleaned up 1.7 era files from the App Support folder
    • Find bar in the editor now shows the result count
    • Organiser file icons have been improved
    • Right-click/context menu in typeset issues list now allows copy to clipboard
    • Added an option to export .bbl (and other intermediate files) when using TexpadTeX
    • The active build script is now displayed on the typeset bar
    • Added a setting to choose whether or not to jump to errors post-typeset
    • Pressing Escape in the global text and tag search fields will now shift focus to the editor
    • Up and down arrows keys will now navigate through the tag search table
  • Fix for
    • Issue where PDF pages could end up out of order in the viewer
    • Incomplete info view for citations in the autocomplete windows
    • synctex command with TexpadTeX
    • Fix for Jump’ button in autocomplete popover
    • Autosense with gastex and a number of LuaTeX specific commands
    • TexpadTeX to turn off with the nomencl and mtpro2 packages
    • Crash when importing projects to Texpad Connect with non-local documents
    • TexpadTeX search paths
    • Global build scripts list in the typeset config window
    • TexpadTeX retypesets after a bundle is installed
    • App-wide auto-typeset setting used with external typesetter
    • Export project as folder to use relative, rather than absolute, paths
    • Remote connect project creation notification
    • Autofill with Bibtex files that have an escaped close curly bracket in the bibtex entry
    • Issue with connect where it could lockup when opening a tpc document with wifi connected, but no connection to server possible
    • CMD-T with TexpadTeX in an unsaved file


  • OS X 10.11 or later
  • For typesetting user must have a LaTeX distribution installed. MacTeX is available for free.

GraphQL

iOS Programming - 6 hours 36 min ago

Hello everyone! I've started to notice that many open APIs have started to migrate from REST to the GraphQL paradigm and after a fast search on Google I've came across Apollo. What I would like to know is if Swift is mature/prepared enough to work with this new paradigm and if I'm "forced" to work with any external dependency to work with it or if it's easily done without it.
