Did someone work w/ #HorizonOS yet? I assume it is essentially like Android development? Or would you always use sth like Unity and never touch the actual "2D" GUI things? Is there a good introduction article for developers?

@nighthawk@aus.social avatar

@helge I have no experience myself, but the last paragraph in this article sounds like it’s game engines for now but Meta is working on something more similar to how visionOS works: https://www.roadtovr.com/meta-horizon-store-app-lab-android-spatial/

The Clicks keyboard could be a portrait game controller for Delta. Would “just” need custom keyboard mappings for the various buttons. (Currently it’s unusable due to lack of arrow keys.) Pretty please, @rileytestut. You’d make me and @viticci happy.

With #wwdc a bit over a month away, it's a good time to start a document with questions about existing frameworks for the one-on-one labs, and create a list of things/radars to test when the first betas drop. It's easy to otherwise forget about those issues and workarounds that have accumulated over the past year in the excitement of the new announcements.

nighthawk,
@nighthawk@aus.social avatar

@sirshannon Fully agree. Seems like a relic of the old in-person format to have labs at the same time as the sessions.

I just shipped a really cool and completely new tool for the community! 🚀

It's a String Catalog editor with far more features than Xcode: Multi-select, Language Delete, even Warnings for Broken Parameters! ⚠️

@Jeehut Very nice. It doesn't let me use the Translation Editor without signing in to a machine translation service. Is that on purpose or an oversight?

iOS disk space management continues to absolutely confound me. My iPhone lies about having 250 GB of ‘free’ space on-device, but plugged in shows only a fraction of that. And it complains about storage nonstop.

@sdw If you open the Camera app, select videos, enable “ProRes HDR”, you get a button that frees up the free space. Weird that this button doesn’t exist in the Settings app.

nighthawk,
@nighthawk@aus.social avatar

@danedeasy No, main storage, too. I first came across it when iPulse reported my phone to be 95% full even though the Settings app said I had 60% free space. Tapping that button and waiting aligned them (for the most part).

nighthawk,
@nighthawk@aus.social avatar

@danedeasy Sure. It only appears if there’s space to clean up, I guess.

PSA for #Xcode 15.4 beta:

If you get this error: “The server declined to authorize this image on this device for this user." errors when trying to run on a device”,

then delete your ~//Library/Developer/Xcode/[OS] DeviceSupport folder.

I am totally amazed how introduction Swift Concurrency bring back dealing with NSLock to our lifes, after years of using DispatchQueues

nighthawk,
@nighthawk@aus.social avatar

@krzyzanowskim I’m curious: How so? My limited uses of NSLock get flagged with warnings now when I throw Swift concurrency into the mix.

I really enjoy that with #Python (or rather with PyCharm IDE) I can just run single file in a couple of seconds to see the results.

Makes it super easy to test initial approach and stuff in general.

And if I need the DB or something else, I can just use #Django management command 🎉

@nemecek_f I have a great time whenever I get to use Jupyter Notebooks. Feels like Markdown with scripting superpowers.

Is there a service that will take an Apple Music link and produce a separate link that includes all the different streaming services the music is available on? Bonus points if they have an API endpoint.

Watching „Constellation“ on Apple TV (no spoilers in this post)

pro:

  • scifi with a really cool female lead
  • Noomi Rapace
  • The astronaut stuff is super ultra realistic
  • it’s new and different

Contra:

  • it can’t decide wether it wants to be in the horror genre or not which is annoying
  • it’s so slooooow. Everything is so drawn out!!

@daniel I felt the same after the first two episodes. I am at episode six now and am happy I stuck with it.

@jamesthomson Here I was thinking that adding the tip jar was worth it after all. Received a "medium"-sized tip of half a million dollars.

Any Mac developers ever get frustrated that you can't embed the WebKit Web Inspector in the same window as your WKWebView if you're using Auto Layout? I submitted a fix! https://github.com/WebKit/WebKit/pull/27105

nighthawk,
@nighthawk@aus.social avatar

@danielpunkass Wait. You can embed the web inspector right in your app? I’ve been going through Safari to inspect a WKWebView in my app. Where can I learn more about this wizardry?

nighthawk,
@nighthawk@aus.social avatar

@danielpunkass Thank you. Will give it a try.

Anybody have clever UX ideas for visually representing languages that does NOT involve national flags?

nighthawk,
@nighthawk@aus.social avatar

@brandonhorst Couldn't resist checking in with ChatGPT on that. Maybe a "theme" per language would make sense that picks a few of things that make sense for each language. That would require a good amount of effort to implement though.

nighthawk,
@nighthawk@aus.social avatar

@brandonhorst Not perfect, but got some good ones. Yay for stereotypes.

I'm still hoping for Apple to add support for time-limited trials and paid upgrades to the App Store. No, I'm not interested in IAP. Maybe EU could force them.

nighthawk,
@nighthawk@aus.social avatar

@sindresorhus You and me both. Limited time-trials in particular, as not being able try before you buy turns away so many potential customers.

Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning is available for rent for just $1 at the moment. (At least in Australia.) Great bargain for this very entertaining movie. I'm a sucker for practical effects and stunts.

@heygarrett I took a pause from it for a while, but just got back into it and now have a lot of great content to catch up on. Loving it!
