I'm Dave, and I love Objective-C.

My Projects:

  • DDMathParser - a library for parsing NSString objects as mathematical expressions and evaluating them
  • CHCSVParser - a library for reading and writing CSV files
  • DDUnitConverter - a simple library for converting between units
  • StackKit - a framework for using the StackExchange API.

If you think I'm a nice guy, check out my Amazon Wishlist! :)

@Ryan it's possible I might have messed up the plist slightly, but it seems to work for me on my system. You can also try doing launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/filename.plist in Terminal to explicitly load it.

comment Which OS X Applications do you find indispensable?
@titaniumdecoy say what? it has built-in syntax highlighting for dozens of languages. Down in the bottom left of every window, there's a thing that says "(none)". click that to show a popup menu of all the built-in languages. you can add even more via plugins. i've been using it for bash and ruby scripting all week, and the syntax highlighting has been just fine.

+1 if you don't want to fork over the cash for BBEdit, TextWrangler is a fantastic alternative, with all of the basic (yet extremely powerful) text editing tools you'll need.

comment Can anyone recommend a programmers' editor?
+1 BBEdit is the only thing I use for non-Cocoa programming. Of the posters requests, the only thing it doesn't have is Git integration.
