Cocoa

I've been reading up on building Cocoa apps for OS X lately. I have a great idea which involves writing a free version of something like Spanning Sync. It's a great app, but I'll be buggered if I'm going to pay a yearly fee to use it! My app might not be as groovy, or as feature rich, but it'll work, and at the very least I'll use it. Also, I won't charge other people to use it, in fact it'll be open source so everyone can laugh at how badly it's written, or help me fix it.

Anyway, back to Cocoa - what a great application framework! I'm loving the interface builder, and connecting interface components to underlying code (and vice versa) using actions and outlets seems so natural and powerful. Considering how long this has been around (NeXT interface builder) this really must have been way ahead of it's time. Objective-C syntax seems quite clunky, but the fact that I'm not used to it probably has quite a bit to do with that. I have a lot more to learn about it's capabilities before I can make any kind of educated comment on that :) So far so good I say!

I'd recommend that anyone even vaguely interested in developing for OS X or just learning about OS X's application architecture check out the great developer resources available on the Apple Developer Connection website. It's really a very neat development environment. Very nice.
