Note that like all analogies, this is not a perfect one. I find it helps me think about it though. Also, don't try to draw conclusions about performance from this analogy :)
-[NSUserDefaults setObject:forKey:] is like...
<edit file to add key and value>
git add file
git commit
dispatch_after(some time, dispatch_get_global_queue(DISPATCH_QUEUE_PRIORITY_DEFAULT, 0), ^{
[[NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults] synchronize]
-[NSUserDefaults objectForKey:] on 10.9 is like...
git pull --rebase
grep key file
-[NSUserDefaults objectForKey:] on iOS 7 is like...
grep key file
-[NSUserDefaults synchronize] is like...
if (git diff --staged != empty) {
BOOL pushedSuccessfully = NO;
do {
pushedSuccessfully = git push
git pull --rebase
} while (!pushedSuccessfully)
} else {
git pull --rebase
