View FailableInitializerFail.swift
// This code does not compile without the following two changes
// 1. add ! to the type of expensiveThing (`String!`)
// 2. expensiveThing = nil // set expensiveThing to nil
// This doesn't really make sense to me. Why should I be forced to finish setup, if I'm going to fail?
// The swift book explains that this is required, but not the logic behind it:
// Search for "Failable Initializers for Classes"

id and protocol conformance
View protocol_id.m
// when specify id as the type, you can use NSObject methods.
// when you specify as a custom protocol, you cannot.
// UNLESS you say that your custom protocol includes <NSObject>
#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>

// all trailing closures
// weirdly looks like we're mapping the block, rather than the result of filtering throwActions using that block.

Invert a UIImage at runtime using Core Image CIFilter + CIContext
View UIImage+Invert.swift
extension UIImage {
func invertedImage() -> UIImage? {
let img = CoreImage.CIImage(CGImage: self.CGImage)

You can’t perform that action at this time.
