A look at the development of Aura and modern Mac apps

I’m expanding this site in a sideways direction with the launch of a new blog. Why two blogs on one site? The new one is focussed on the development of Aura. This one will stay concentrated on news, releases, new features and the occasional gripe about Google.

Expect articles on things like Swift, Objective C, some deeper dives into the technologies behind the Mac, some design stuff and other nerdery. Aura is designed for the Mac, but a lot of these techniques also apply to iOS. And where the Mac and iOS diverge I will point it out.

To kick things off, a look at how to add table views to Xcode playgrounds and how to use colors with the new dark mode in Mojave and Catalina.
