Piatti del giorno 58
Back from world travels and clearing the backlog.
- From C declarators to Objective-C blocks syntax - Block syntax from first principles (h/t @jonathanpenn).
- A History of Parametric - Keeping myself occupied with the B-side of a dissertation whose publication I’m eagerly awaiting.
- On Scientific Computing - Many parallels with architectural computing.
- lindes/get-location - CoreLocation command line tool for getting your current location. I should swap this into a post-commit hook that I made up to tag all my commits with lat-long.
- daux.io - Markdown document generator in node. If I didn’t already have something similar I put together in Sinatra I might be all over this.
- UIButtons and UIControls in UITableViewCell made easy - If you’ve ever felt the pain of a long list of #define’d ints for use as view tags.
- Taking Stackshots - How to create an on-device stack dump the next time an iOS app hangs.
- Too DRY - The Grep Test - An interesting deadman switch on runaway metaprogramming.
- mhagger/git-imerge - Merge pairwise by conflicting commits instead of trying to unsnarl one big conflict presented as a patch on the working directory.
- Flandria - A really fantastic use of browser scroll position to show off type specimens.
- Capptivate - A scrapbook of UI motion graphics, which will be much more important two days from now.
- The Pixar Way - I have to call it a tie on which person-crucible pairing is more fascinating: Steve Jobs/NeXT or Ed Catmull/Pixar (h/t @scottberkun).
- The Private Eye - “It’s a detective story set in 2076, when everyone in the United States has a secret identity. Our protagonist is a member of the paparazzi, outlaw private investigators who dig up the kind of personal dirt no longer readily available through search engines” (h/t @danimal).
