Using PHP to check and read a remote GIT file

Hi!

I have been strugeling a bit with this issue during my build of a CI-system. I would like the user to select a git repostirory and branch and let the user install it, however, some settings might need to be set and wanted to read the ANT files “build.properties” and “replace.properties” and show them in the client.

While reading the files, I didn’t want to checkout full projects to do so… so I had do digg around a bit. In the end my colleuge found this page:

Writing the XCode Cookbook

Hi!
As some of you might know, I am writing an XCode Cookbook. This is a book which will contain only tutorials on how to do different things within XCode. So, no tutorials like “Adding Facebook to my iPhone app”, but more in the style like “Adding custom location to the iOS Simulator” or “Managing multiple targets within my project”.

I have a list of about 50-60 tutorials, but I need more. I need about 40 tutorials (3-4 chapters) more, so I am looking for tips; and since you, my readers, come here for such things, who better to ask but YOU!

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.

iOS 4 & iOS 5 tutorial: UIAlertView with link to WIFI or Settings app using Reachability and XCode 4.2

Hi!

This tutorial is about how to make your apps UX just a little bit better. Have you ever noticed the message in google maps stating that if you activate Wifi you would get a better positioning? Or that when you want to send a text message and your phone is on flight mode, that you get the message to de-activate flight mode in order to send a text?

Well, it is actually really simple. These are just links that are opened. So, in this tutorial I will show you how to do this using e.g. Reachability.

Automatic incremental build number in xCode 4.3

Hi,

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.
