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.

If you think I'm a nice guy, check out my Amazon Wishlist! :)

comment Best way of structuring a library?
I modeled it off of CoreData because SO is essentially a glorified data store, and a lot of Cocoa devs are familiar with how CoreData works. It seemed to me that by mimicking it, it would help lower the barrier to adoption. The significant architectural difference is that in StackKit, you can execute requests asynchronously, which you can't do in CoreData.

@johnwards as we Cocoa users say, "Embrace the Brackets!" :) I'll edit the post with a bit more contextual information.

comment Retrieving a post with a specific ID
@Kevin it makes library implementation slightly simpler. Specific example: retrieve the comments to a particular post. Instead of having to know that the post is a Q or an A, I could just request /posts/{id}/comments and be done with it. (which I realize now isn't immediately obvious in my question. i'll update it)
