The Xcode project file has quite a complicated structure and it brings unnecessary complexity where something simpler could be used instead. Thus we were very intrigued to move to project generation. Project generation has a lot of benefits – not committing Xcode files means fewer merge conflicts (truth be told, merge conflicts have become quite rare now!) and also clearer project settings. Unless you are a wizard 🧙♂️, you probably cannot read a project file fluently (and even if you can, it is still very hard to get familiarized with it).
Tezos smart contracts have matured a lot – and it’s time to use them in iOS apps, closer to the users’ hands. 😉 Throughout this tutorial we will write a smart contract using SmartPy.io and then move to Xcode and get a hands-on experience with interacting with our contract in Swift using generated code from tezosgen. Note that this tutorial will touch on the most important parts of RateMyTeam app and is not a complete step-by-step tutorial. (more…)
How to fill up the inbox with spam? Create a contact form without captcha!
Did the form focused against bots Google reCaptcha step into your way? And did it ever stop you from automatically gathering information from a website? Captcha by Google can be worked around by machine, but there are only a couple options and not all of them are suitable or functional. There is, however, a solution and it might surprise you that it is not so surprising. So who will solve Google captcha?
Do you want to develop a new application, but the complexity of native application development is detering you from doing so? Maybe the new concept of software development might help you. It is called progressive web application (PWA). Is it just another buzzword or can PWAs really replace native applications?
NSSpain is one of the most well-known iOS conferences in Europe – that had been proven by the fact the tickets had been sold out before even one single speaker was announced. This was my first time at any iOS conference, so I was extremely excited about this whole trip. The talks were divided into two days, 19th and 20th September, so it was a great getaway before the summer ends.
18 years have passed since the publication of the agile development manifesto, which is a really long time in IT. However, we still do not use it as often as we would like. Agile methodologies are not universally applicable to all. For which projects and customers is therefore agile suitable and how can it really look like in the real life of agency development? (more…)
Do you use React? Do you need an internationalized static website? We have a brand new GatsbyJS starter supporting you out-of-box! Check out our Github.
In Ackee, we use React as the main front-end technology. Most of the time we create SPAs, but sometimes we need to create a static website with just a few pages, and an internationalization is compulsory every time. There is a lot of static site builders but if you want something easy to use with React, you should go with GatsbyJS and its huge starter ecosystem.
