PurposeTo provide a clean and code oriented solution to getting and making use of reusable Cocoa code, or 'Pieces'.
GuidelinesHow to Use the Framework.Or, How to Use Other Peoples StuffCompile the project in the MoreCocoa dir, and add it to your project. Suggest using svn externals so that the framework is always kept up to date in your own project. If binary bloat is a concern, then perhaps when you release, remove the framework and just add the files you ended up using.
Browsing PiecesBuild and run the project in the CocoaBrowser dir then double click on any item that looks interesting in the Pieces Browser.
How to ContributeOr, How to Add Your Own StuffPut the files containing your reusable code into the MoreCocoa dir, and add them to the project file therein, following the conventions within the file to keep it neat.
Then optionally add the files to the CocoaBrowser project, within that dir, by reference, and add any supporting nib and controller objects needed so that the CocoaBrowser app, when run, can load the nib and give a demonstration of your object.
Make sure you accredit your own and other people's work.
DetailsObj-C 2.0 OK. Garbage collection supported (-fobjc-gc), so make sure all code is ready for this (ie, we need retains, releases). For projects targeted at OS X 10.5 (although could make another target within the framework with other configs). Aim is to maintain a separate application (CocoaBrowser) for showcasing each piece available in the framework.
