MacPorts 2 & XCode 4.3

Well, to sum it up… this has been a “pain in the ass” for me. The last few days I have had some trouble running OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) preview… which is not that weird since it is a developers preview. The main problem was that MacPorts didn’t work since 10.8 uses Darwin 12 and Lion (with MacPorts 2 installation) uses Darwin 11.

So, I managed to screw things up so badly that I spend whole yesterday evening copying files manually to a USB drive using the “Install Disk” for Lion. Now I formatted my MacBook Air and Mac Mini and installed Lion once again.

Tool: Fix bootstrap server error when launching from xCode to iOS Simulator

Since the release of XCode 4.2 I have noticed a certain error poping up after buidling reguarly. The error incidcates that the iOS Simulator already has a process running or is hung. The anoying part is that even if you quit XCode and iOS Simulator, the problem wont go away.

This is the error:

Couldn’t register com.myApp.debug with the bootstrap server. Error: unknown error code. This generally means that another instance of this process was already running or is hung in the debugger.Program received signal: “SIGABRT”.

Automatic incremental build number in xCode 4.3


I have always wondered how to get a better build number in my projects, instead of having to change is manually. So, I finally googled it and found a solution. Or better yet, found several… but none working for xCode 4.3.

In xCode 4.3 you can actually change the build number manually in the project settings. I have not found a solution yet to activate an automatic build number update, however I have not search so much for that either.

Programming Objective-C in XCode 4 – iPhone iOS 4.3 Hello, World! tutorial


Somewhat days ago Apple released a new version of XCode, and a lot of stuff is new in this version. Thereby also the layout of the application, interface builder and the way an application can be constructed.
But, for those of you completely new to development for iOS devices (and for those of you new to XCode 4 or for you who just want to shape up a bit? =S), I wrote a Hello World for XCode 4, iOS4.3.

So, lets get started.

iTunes Store RSS App Fetcher

I think thats the longest title I could think off… or is it? Anyways… with regards to the questions and/or complaints I have gotten about my (somewhat “crappy”) itunes parser which I wrote in the past, I decided to quickly put together a new parser, just for fetching specific app data.

So, what did I do? Well, it basicly parses the data from the “Apple – iTunes – RSS Generator” and shows it for you in your browser. This could be usefull for those of you that want to implement real-time iTunes appstore data into your website.
