I'm Dave, and I love Objective-C.

My Projects:

  • DDMathParser - a library for parsing NSString objects as mathematical expressions and evaluating them
  • CHCSVParser - a library for reading and writing CSV files
  • DDUnitConverter - a simple library for converting between units
  • StackKit - a framework for using the StackExchange API.

comment StackKit: an API framework for Cocoa
good idea. I'm a big fan of memory management, so I totally forgot about garbage collection. I've pushed a change that turns on support for garbage collection, as well as an SKUser method that takes a square CGSize (or CGSizeZero) and returns a gravatar URL. Keep the feature requests coming! :)

comment How the apps-libraries will be judged for the contest?
@Matt your app is lame because you don't have an iOS screenshot either :P Please try not to be so "zealous" about promoting your app. You don't make yourself look good by putting others down.

comment SOAPI-WATCH: A realtime service that notifies subscribers via Twitter when the API changes in any way
@code poet - WRT the twitter updates, it'd be nice if you could detect when the only thing that's changed is the first line of the api ;) That would help eliminate most of the "false positive" tweets.

Since this requires a bit more information than is easily readable in a comment, I opened (and subsequently closed) an issue for this on the StackKit site: github.com/davedelong/StackKit/issues/10

comment Stack2Blog - Turning your answers into blogs (For “sale”)
+1 yes, I occasionally have wanted this. It'd be really slick if you could roll this into a WordPress/Drupal/whatever module that could be accessed directly within each site's admin panel.
