aceontech / StringsFileParser.swift
Last active Aug 1, 2020
Prototype implementation of a .strings file parser written in Swift, using Parser Combinators, as explained by See for all videos on this topic.
View StringsFileParser.swift
public protocol FileParser {
func parse(string: String) -> [Entry]
public struct FileParserFactory {
public static func unordered() -> FileParser {
public static func ordered() -> FileParser {
LineOrderedFileParser(unorderedParser: unordered())
aceontech / RetainCycleUnitTest.swift
Created Mar 3, 2017
Unit test for checking for retain cycles in Swift. Replace `CLASS_YOU_WANT_TO_TEST` with your class name.
View RetainCycleUnitTest.swift
func testCleanup() {
// Extend your class inline in order to add closure property `deinitCalled`,
// which indicates when/if your class's deinit() gets called
class ClassUnderTest: CLASS_YOU_WANT_TO_TEST {
var deinitCalled: (() -> Void)?
deinit { deinitCalled?() }
// Set up async expectation, which causes the test to wait for `deinitCalled`
aceontech / ImprovedBuilderPattern.swift
Created Mar 25, 2016
Improved builder pattern with anonymous closures
View ImprovedBuilderPattern.swift
class SomeClass {
var someSubview:UIView = {
let v = UIView()
v.someProperty = "You want to initalize"
v.anotherProperty = "You may want to initialize"
return v
aceontech / UILabel+AOTSizingUtilities.h
Created Feb 3, 2015
Category on UILabel for easily sizing a label to fit in a given width.
View UILabel+AOTSizingUtilities.h
// Created by Alex Manarpies on 03/02/15.
#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>
#import <UIKit/UIKit.h>
@interface UILabel (AOTSizingUtilities)
- (void)aot_sizeToFitInWidth:(CGFloat)width;
aceontech / CGPointIntegral.h
Created Jan 9, 2015
Akin to CGRectIntegral, CGPointIntegral aligns a CGPoint to the screen's pixel boundaries by rounding its values appropriately. This avoids the blurry anti-aliasing seen when drawing fractional coordinates (e.g. 20.224).

// Created by Alex Manarpies on 12/17/14.
#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>
* Utility class for maintaining a moving average over a given time period.
