Worked on extracting some of my code into a new project which is turning into a nice diversion. Mostly learning, not a ton of code.
I spent a bit of extra time enjoying my little diversion. It’s requiring me to dig into objective-c and cocoa a bit more, understanding how dates are handled and understanding more about the common date formats. I’m building a category for NSDate to handle conversion of strings to dates for the common date formats; I plan on putting it on GitHub once it’s ready for my own use?
Why go through the trouble of putting something on GitHub?
- I found that I kept coming back to this section of code and needing it to be more robust.
- Making something “good enough to show” others makes you do it right (or at least what your interpretation of right is).
- I’ve been helped by others who’ve shared their great libraries as open source.
- I couldn’t find what I needed already (though I was inspired by something coming close).
Anyhow, it should be “good enough to show” soon.
