Over time, any code base grows along with the project evolves and matures. It creates two main constraints for developers: how to have a code well organized while keeping a build time as low as possible. Let’s see how a modular architecture can fix that.
I have been interested in analytics tools for a while, especially when it’s applied to mobile development. Over the time, I saw many code mistakes when implementing an analytical solution. Some of them can be easily avoided when developer got the right insights, let’s see how.
Since Xcode 7, iOS developers can generate a code coverage for their app: a report showing which area of their app is covered by unit tests. However, this is isn’t always accurate, let’s see why you should not base your code health only on code coverage.
With iOS13, Apple is introducing “Sign In with Apple”, an authentication system that allows user create an account for your app based on their Apple ID. Let’s see how to integrate it in your app and be ready for iOS13 launch.
One debate over the past year in the iOS ecosystem was the around functional reactive framework like RxSwift or ReactiveCocoa. This year at WWDC2019, Apple took position on it and released their own functional reactive programming framework, here is Combine.
I have been recently asked to review an iOS application to see how healthy was the code base, if it follows the best practices and how easy it would be to add new features to it. If I review some code on daily basis for small pull requests, analyzing one whole app at once is quite different exercise. Here is some guidelines to help doing that analysis.
