Xcode replace old style code to new style
Assume you have
[personData setValue:someProperty forKey:someKey]
and you want to change that to
personData[someKey] = someProperty
…and that for about 100 lines ?
Easy! Just type Find (cmd-f in your Xcode, change it to replace, then click on the magnifying glass and select edit find options, and then regular expression for “matching style”. Then type in
Find: \[(.*) setValue:(.*).*forKey:(.*)\];
Replace: $1[$3] = $2;
The ()-part in the find finds the first text addressed by $1, the second ()-part is addressed later by $2
You gotta love regular expressions!
China Domain name registration scam
In the past years, we received at least once a year an email where some
nice registration company from china asks us if we would mind, if some client of theirs would register the domain small-apps.cn. Today was the day for 2016.
Let me tell you that registering your domain name in china is easy and cheap – about 12-20 $/€ a year I read in a price list of nicenic.net. German reseller companies offer it for 60€/year.
Swift code comment special words
Swift can help you a lot to document your code – it allows you to use markup. However, in order to use it not only as formatted text but as source code commentary, it is nice to use the special keywords known.
I created my own cheat sheet for these keywords, which create their own left column or blocks. Always use them with a preceding minus, like this
– returns: the object or nil, if not successful
- parameter <param>:
You can also use the following keywords to have bold text formatted inside the description block:
