xCode color scheme with a sense
As I looked around the webs for an easing xCode color scheme, I realized that none of them utilized the fact that colors can be customized along the categories they stand for. At this point I started to design eppz!xCode color scheme, with a strong sense behind color choices. It resulted in a really clean […]
Simplest way to load UIView from Xib files
The method has three role player. First, an Interface Builder Xib file that holds a configured view we want to load. The middle player is a smart but death simple helper object EPPZViewInstantiator with the sole purpose of load a Nib file, and have a reference to a view in it. The third is a tiny UIView category.

Just use some smart xCode build setting. show the folder where the latest executable have built. tells you the full name of the executable. Now you got what […]
Custom UITableViewCell from Xib with ease
As it is common among these articles, the main point is always to keep the client code clean, resulting in some reusable, extendable class for everyday use. This article will just do the same. Ending up in a custom TechCrunch themed table with instantiating each UITableViewCell from Xib file.
Compiler warnings acting as a todo list
In early days my ongoing projects had 50-120 compiler warnings I simply not considered. I only took any debugging actions on error messages. As time went by I tended to write more and more explicit code to see the most of error-prone issues statically before runtime debugging. Having this, with warningless projects, compiler warnings turned […]
