Some time ago I mentioned a nice tutorial on how to create a simple Cocos2D game using CocosBuilder unfortunately updates on the CocosBuilder tool have ended.
Here’s a tutorial by Benjamin E. that goes through step-by-step building a Flappy Birds Clone for Cocos2D V3 using the free SpriteBuilder tool.
I’ve mentioned the custom transition a few times, such as in this tutorial on creating your own custom transitions.
Here’s a tutorial from Matt Neuberg that utilizes the iOS 7 custom view controller transitions API to present a partial view similar to a UIAlertView complete with animations.
The advantage of this approach is that you can place any interface elements into your UIAlertView and in the tutorial Matt shows how to create a UIAlertView with a switch and image.
A few days ago I mentioned a nice guide demonstrating the benefits of using ReactiveCocoa signals as opposed to the standard Objective-C delegate pattern, and I’ve noticed a good deal of interest in ReactiveCocoa.
Here’s a nice video about ReactiveCocoa from Matt Mathias at a Big Nerd Ranch Tech Talk that provides a nice introduction to ReactiveCocoa explaining what functional programming is, what ReactiveCocoa is and it’s advantages:
I’ve mentioned the Objective-C functional programming framework ReactiveCocoa and recently mentioned a tutorial on creating a weather that app demonstrating many functional programming basics with ReactiveCocoa.
Here’s a tutorial from Justin Dewind explaining how to utilize the helpers in ReactiveCocoa for creating signals to improve upon the standard Cocoa delegate pattern.
The tutorial goes through a complete example where a UIViewController is a delegate to UISearchBar and UISearchDisplayController, replacing the delegate pattern with one that uses signals.
I’ve mentioned a number of Xcode plugins to help with getting the most of the Xcode IDE.
Here’s an interesting tutorial from Luis Solano on creating advanced custom Xcode shortcuts.
Keep in mind I’m not talking about simply custom keybindings in Xcode, but rather custom shortcuts that can involve a number of Xcode actions.
In the tutorial Luis shows how to set up the shortcuts by modifying the Xcode plist file for deleting and duplicating the current line, and inserting lines above and below the current line.
