Cocoapods is a dependency manager for Swift projects. It simplifies
importing third-party libraries to the project and it handles dependencies.
In this tutorial we will import the FontBlaster library using cocoa pods.
The FontBlaster library makes it easy to use custom fonts inside the
project. This tutorial is made for iOS8 and Xcode 6.4.
I would like to announce the release of RSNetworking 2 for Swift 2. RSNetworking and RSNetworking 2 are network libraries written entirely in the Swift programming language. RSNetworking 2 has all the same great features that RSNetworking has but it is written for Swift 2. This post describes RSNetworking 2 and explains how to use it.
In this post I will explain how we could use tuples to model our data and then I will show how I would replace the data model classes from my previous "Create a Data Access Layer using SQLite.swift" post with tuples. When we replace data modeling classes or structures with tuples our code can become much more compact and in some ways easier to understand however we do lose the ability to add functionality to our data model types, but is that a bad thing?
