Today I started working on my first real open source project; NxKit.

My intention is to create an ever expanding yet lightweight Objective-C framework that contains classes and categories to reduce the amount of code we developers need to write in our main projects. I will be using continuous integration with OSX server to ensure the framework contains a high percentage of tested code.

Great! But aren’t there already lots of established alternatives?  Yes, and this framework will do it’s best not to tread on anyone’s toes by not re-inventing the wheel and sticking to smaller, drop-in enhancements to the existing Foundation / Cocoa Touch frameworks.

Like What? Anything that is deemed appropriately generic, useful, and self-contained could end up making it’s way into this framework.

I am planning to make it compatible with CocoaPods and have each component available in its own pod. The hope is that as the project grows it will become more useful to a wider audience while still remaining highly modular.

Let’s see where it ends up…

Mantis Bug Tracker

To assist in development and bug/feature tracking (both for myself and users) I have installed Mantis Bug Tracker.

It can be accessed at http://bugs.stevewilford.co.uk or using the Issue Tracker link to the right. You will be able to track progress on upcoming versions of published apps, and report issues or feature requests on existing versions.

You don’t need an account to view existing issues / features but you will need to register to be able to report issues or submit feature requests.

You can still report issues in the usual ways; leave a comment on the appropriate app page on this site, via email, or iTunes.

Hello world!

Welcome to stevewilford.co.uk.

Here you will find sneak previews of my upcoming iOS apps, along with support for my current apps.

From time to time I may also use this as a place to rant uncontrollably about whatever has affected me enough to do so.
