One major purpose for this system is to locate (and re-use) artifacts from existing iOS projects. The heavy lift that is required to do this is the analysis of an XCode project and identification of the component parts of a project.
Identification, classification and storing of this information has begun. As this repository of assets grows, the value of those assets are revealed through search, capture and re-use through your own project efforts. Eventually, if those artifacts are ‘watched’ for change, updates to these parent projects can be communicated through the channel of your choosing, to absorb these changes if requested.
Our intent is to build a vast collection of valuable assets, that provide quality, function and have targeted purpose to enable the construction of mobile apps through template generation, annotated inclusion and copying the efforts of those talented authors of these repositories.
As they say, the sincerest imitation is the sincerest form of flattery (for software development, it’s forking someone else’s repository) !
Happy cloning to all our neighbors !
