This week we’re featuring Quicktype - it can save you time and make your code safer by generating type-safe Swift or Objective C from API sample responses. Then if the API changes, you can easily re-generate your code.

We’re also featuring Airbnb’s Swift style guide - a really comprehensive resource that could help your team a lot.

Warp - fast, rust based terminal

Warp is a fast, rust-based terminal
Make a terminal feel like a code-editor. This (for now) macOS only terminal is written from the ground up using Rust. This means it’s fully native and should be fast, or as they claim it “blazingly fast”. Out of the box Warp works with zsh, fish and bash for backwards compatibility.

What we like
  • No web technology used
  • Cursor pointing
  • A.I. search command to convert natural language to shell commands

Thank you to Bitrise for sponsoring this week’s newsletter.

Airbnb's Swift Style Guide - code conventions

Airbnb is a well-known open source contributor and a company with a large number of developers. Can you imagine if they all had their own separate coding conventions?!
This styling guide builds on top of the official Swift API Design Guidelines to help teams write better, consistent code.

What we like
  • Build in addition to the official Swift API Design Guidelines, not as a replacement
  • Airbnb is a long-time Open Source contributor. Sharing their knowledge as a large company is really valuable
