# Optional. Same as above but keeps the commit hash
#LAST_TAG_VERSION=`git describe --tags`
# Total number of commits in the repository
TOTAL_COMMITS=`git rev-list HEAD --count`
# Write the version numbers to the compiled product

Objective-C style guide

My Objective-C Style guide

This style guide outlines the coding conventions that I try to stick to when writing Objective-C. I'm posting it here mostly as a brain dump and easy reference for the future, and to formalise it a little more.

It's pretty similar to that of the NYTimes. This document is mostly a customised version of that, you should go check theirs out!

Useful Resources

If you're looking to see some of the reasons behind some choices, or for something I haven't covered, look at the sites below, Apples documentation is pretty great.

Creating a dynamic site-to-site VPN with OpenSwan on Ubuntu 10.04 on EC2

Wes Winham

There are many tutorials floating around the web that almost get you a dynamic VPN in EC2. The goal of this tutorial is to be a one-stop-shop for this specific setup.

The WordPress Way - The 10 rules of WordPress development

The WordPress Way

A tongue-in-cheek look at coding standards in the WordPress core and the average WordPress plugin.

  1. # Declare variables global - in case they're going to be used again
  2. All function/method parameters should be strings (e.g. 'yes'/'no') - for clarity
  3. Functions and methods should return mixed types
  4. No need to separate PHP logic from HTML, JS or CSS
  5. Don't worry about PHP Notices - they're not important
