Trac on Snow Leopard

Chip | Cocoa | Thursday, March 4th, 2010

I love Trac, but am moving my scm to git (instead of Subversion). My problem is getting a functional install of Trac with the git-Trac plugin working on my remote server. To solve that problem, I’m going to make sure first that I can get a fully functional version running locally. Here are my notes…. (more…)

Updating to 10.6SDK part II

Chip | Cocoa | Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

I thought I was ready to dive into the functionality changes/fixes around views, but discovered an incompatibility in saving images in different formats that needed to be corrected first.


Random Thought

Chip | Uncategorized | Sunday, December 27th, 2009

I was just reading some speculation about the rumored Apple Tablet, i.e. iSlate and had this thought about the “use case we’re missing”. Apple builds value by owing the whole experience and stack (hardware to software). As the cloud becomes more important to the mobile use case, will they look to own that as well? (more…)

Thanksgiving Recipies

Chip | Food | Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Okay, I’m a foody. Now you know. We have a family tradition (fifth year, so it must be a tradition) to get together with friends that are also foodies and cook it up for Thanksgiving.

Unfortunately, we have developed a list of favorite, “must have” dishes, that I end up having to re-find every year. Enough is enough. Here they will be captured so I can just retrieve, print, shop and cook in the future. (more…)

Chip | Cocoa | Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

After completing the conversion to 64-bit, MagicBrush-Photo is “broken” since it also relies on the 10.4 SDK and some behavior has changed in 10.6. Here are a few of the issues and problems that had to be overcome. (more…)

Cocoa Sparklines

Chip | Cocoa | Monday, November 16th, 2009

Okay, there are tons of sparkline libraries on the web (PHP, Python, Ruby, etc.) But it does not appear that anyone has implemented them within Cocoa on a Mac so the premiere content creation platform can easily generate these dense collections of information.

So, what would an extension on NSAttributedString look like so sparklines can be easily embedded in a standard text view?

For that matter, should there be a tagging system so data could be entered easily to render the sparkline?

Maybe a custom control that could be inlined in text?

The possibilities abound.

Converting to 64 bits

Chip | Cocoa | Saturday, October 17th, 2009

It’s time to spend a little quality time with MagicBrush-Photo and start getting it ready for Snow Leopard. Step one is getting it ready to handle 64-bit addressing. (more…)

What’s the buzz?

Chip | Uncategorized | Friday, April 24th, 2009

A quick post as I take a break from working on a new app for the iPhone.

It seems that last year, a month before WWDC there was already a buzz in the air around attending and getting a jump on the iPhone market.

I’m not seeing it this year. Anyone else feeling the same?
