Response to: RE: XCode please

Alright, well let's get back on track. First item, thanks iopossum for your note. No hard feelings :)


In general, I hope we're to the point where we agree to tolerate a little diversity in our articles, ranging from beginning developer to advanced programmer, plus news, commentary, and for god sakes some fun. I think we publish enough content on Mac DevCenter to accommodate these different levels.


That being said, I do want contributions from advanced programmers (always have), and I want them to show off their stuff right here. Send me your ideas in the body of an email, and I will get back to you. Almost every article I publish starts this way.


As for my part, I will continue to look for writers who have the time to produce advanced articles. As you guys know, the people who can do this are some of the busiest in the world. I'll do my best to cajole work out of them. But it's a team effort here, and I need your help.

    (I feel a bit like I am jumping in a little late.. unfortunately I was out of town and off the net the whole weekend... but I feel like i need to add my 2 cents)

    I understand that the first article was a little basic and that it was not the most novel concept. the thing is the goal for this topic was always two articles: part one with the basics, part two with more meat. i felt it would be confusing to readers to jump right into the intracies of webkit without having a backgroud article for readers to refer to.

    that being said, if there is anything that anyone is specifically looking for in part 2, let me know and I will try my best to include it in the article. i need specifics though, not something like "more technical details of webkit".

    as derrick said, it's a team effort, i can't deliver what you want in an article unless i know what it that is.

      Thanks Andrew,

      I would just like to see you follow up with what you outlined at the end of the article. For example, updating the URL line.

      I saw the 'Mac OS X State of the Union' video at ADC. Towards the end, it was demonstrated how to set up a browswer using WebKit very quickly. Using XCode, it was easy to set up the outlets from the UI elements to the WebView; but I don't understand how the new controller mechanism was used to do the reverse: update the UI from WebKit.

      It would be great if you could explain not only WebKit, but something about how this new tool works.

        i've posted some code at http://end.com/BionicDOM that does something like this. it is a framework with an Interface Builder palette that lets you use Cocoa Bindings to access values in the WebView. the sample.nib file included implements a live CSS inspector panel entirely with bindings. (try running sample.nib in the Interface Builder simulator)

      Hello,

      I originally took a look at this tutorial thinking there was a small chance there might be a little information I could apply towards creating an javascript aware environment.

      I know that this is something that probably wouldn't fit in the next article that well, but I thought this was as good a place as any to get in a request. I'd love to see an article about embedding a javascript environment.
