• Okay, #SwiftUI question time! You need to pass info from e.g. an EnvironmentObject or Core Data into a Mac app’s ComandMenu. How do you make that happen? Trying to use FocusedBindings as in this thread isn’t working for me. Any other ideas?

  • I’ve been talking about wanting to start shooting photos again, so I’m taking Olly out with me on some errands this morning. Taking the camera with you is the easy part, though, so I’m also setting a goal of snapping at least three photos.

  • Something that’s been tricky for me in building WriteFreely for Mac in SwiftUI has been programmatically creating a new post, then setting state in the columns in the window. Made a sample project exploring it further: github.com/AngeloSta…

  • After years of running a Hugo-powered blog and having built a custom theme for it, I’m (finally) coming to the realization that the more work I have to do to publish a though, the less likely I am to do it.

    Kinda obvious in retrospect, I guess.

  • Feeling the need for a new profile photo — this one is three years old.

    On the plus side, I look at least 37% better these days.

    Make that 19% worse.

  • I deleted my Instagram account months ago—I was too creeped out by the service to use it. I have a new-ish Flickr account, which is still the best photography-focused social network IMHO.

  • Winter is coming.

    A screenshot of a portion of an iPhone lock screen saying "Good Morning" and indicating a current temperature of -6C.

  • WriteFreely for iOS v1.0.1 is now rolling out to the App Store! There are a whole lot of little fixes and improvements to the app — check them out here!

  • Almost filled the espresso machine’s tank with coffee beans and the coffee grinder’s hopper with water, so I guess it’s Monday. 😴

  • Is it just me, or has “Listen for ‘Hey Siri’” when your iPhone is locked just… stopped working lately?

    (Yes, “Allow Siri When Locked” is enabled.)

  • That thing when you’re on a tear opening issues in a repo and it feels super productive, but then you look at the list of work you’ve actually put into words and are like, oh no

  • Okay, here’s an idea you can have for free:

    A new social sharing site, but you get karma for typing up a comment, then deleting what you typed and NOT submitting anything.

  • So, uh… if you’re supposed to be receiving your new iPhone on Friday, have you received a shipping notification yet? 😬

  • Yesterday, v1.0 of the WriteFreely app for iOS launched on the App Store — I wrote a bit about my experience building it in SwiftUI here, as well as what’s next.

  • There’s a practice of taking a piece of paper, writing down your thoughts and feels on it, and burning that sheet when you’re done. What’s it called?

    I’m trying to find some kind of canonical reference to this, but failing to come up with anything definitive.

  • I’m currently watching an episode of Twin Peaks and WOW I’d forgotten how weird this show was

  • Coming soon to a WriteFreely TestFlight beta near you — publish local posts to a collection, and move posts between collections!

    Sign up to test the app here: writefreely.org/apps/ios/…

  • That thing when you can’t type in Xcode anymore so you close and reopen your project, quit and restart Xcode, shutdown and reboot your Mac… and then realize you were trying to make changes to a remote Swift Package.

  • Oh my days, it’s finally live — sign up for the WriteFreely for iOS public beta! 🎉

  • Been working with SwifUI all summer to build this. It’s getting close! 😬😃🥳

  • Thinking about starting a new blog series called “I Should Know Better: Foods I’ve Burped Into My Mask”

  • Am I doing something wrong, or does didFinishLaunchingNotification simply not fire in #SwiftUI .onReceive() handlers?

    I’m finding that the only way to detect app launch is to add back an AppDelegate, like an animal. That can’t be right?

  • You see, the reason olives are added to martinis is because one mustn’t partake on an empty stomach 🍸

  • Hey nice, Big Sur beta 7 and Xcode 12.2 beta are now available for download!
