Welcome to a new, hopefully exciting tutorial! In a previous post I showed to you the process of creating a custom class that manages web requests and RESTful APIs. Today, we will keep building on it, as I would like to focus on a specific use case: How to upload files to a server!
Great apps have great user interfaces, and chances to build a great interface entirely inside the views of the view controllers in the storyboard file(s) are small. Usually, complex views are being designed in separate Xib (Interface Builder) files, and knowing how to load content from custom views is a mandatory skill that each macOS […]
Most applications nowadays communicate with servers to exchange data, and they do so by consuming RESTful APIs, also called RESTful web services. Using REST, applications can send requests to servers, and servers send responses as answers back to client apps. The whole communication is based on standard rules that REST architectural style defines. Obviously, developers […]
One of the basic, yet vital things a developer should know when creating macOS apps is how to present alerts, system panels or custom windows to their apps.
