    Another year and change of copying ALL the frameworks over during each Swift-using app install. I'm seriously considering going back to Obj-C just for the fast compile and install times. **Iteration speed matters!**

      F# has quote and unquote and splice for macro building - typed and untyped quote even - and Unquote [github.com] is a handy test lib that exploits this to write nice test failure messages for you when given normal code.

        I’ll give Planet of the Apps a chance, but what a missed opportunity. Even more over-dramatized and gimmicky than expected.

          This list of programming book acronyms [wiki.c2.com] also makes a handy "people found these books remarkable enough to talk about enough that they created acronyms" reading list.

            Ooh! Swift structured editing support [lists.swift.org] is on its way! I wonder how many years before Xcode we'll see both App Code and Emacs will support leveraging it?

              @johngordon The big question is why whomever is in charge of iBooks doesn’t fix the obvious problems with submitting books. It doesn’t look like a hard to solve problem.

                @johngordon I have heard from friends iBooks is a pain to publish to. Sad as the client software is head and shoulders better than kindle. Wish they'd target academic books too.

                    Anyone else having a problem getting the email that's supposed to let us download a backup of our data? How long should it take from the time I request it to receiving it?

                      TIL: OpenStep had an OLE-alike in the form of NSDataLinkManager and NSDataLink, exposed via a "Paste and Link" menu item.

                        @clarkgoble Oh, also, with laptop, far easier to spawn a ton of tabs to compare views or find more info on a detail I want to learn more about. Whereas on phone I'm likely to bag the curiosity, plough on, and miss that learning experience.
