Our Journey to Generated Projects

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.

Mastering targets and schemes in Xcode for multi-environment development

One of the disciplines, which we have truly mastered at Ackee is the development of white-label applications. These are applications which differ only in a few variables, appearance, and part of the content. They are great for applications suitable for frequent replication thanks to the same structure (applications for new festival every year, etc.). In addition to our own products App4Fest and App4Conf, we have worked on a number of similar startups. When developing a mobile application, the programmer needs to make the work as easy as possible while keeping the code clean and uncluttered.
