HotCocoa is a thin, idiomatic Ruby layer that sits above Cocoa and other frameworks. The goal of the project is to simplify the process of creating and configuring Cocoa objects used when building native Mac apps.
$ sudo macgem install hotcocoa
Or to get the bleeding edge, you can clone the repository on Github and install from there:
$ git clone git://github.com/HotCocoa/hotcocoa $ cd hotcocoa $ sudo macrake install
Note: You will need the Mac OS X developer tools in order to build apps. Xcode is not required, but the compiler toolchain is needed.
The documentation can be found on rdoc.info.
The most important pages are:
The documentation currently does not cover the shipped mappings right now due to the way that mappings are implemented; a YARD plug-in or new YARD features will be needed (stay tuned).
Have a look in the examples folder to see some sample apps which use HotCocoa.
HotCocoa has ambitious goals that are difficult to accomplish with the input of only a few people. Feedback is the easiest way to contribute and goes a long way to making sure HotCocoa is on the right path to accomplishing those goals.
There are still some APIs that need documentation, regression tests that need to be written, and tutorials to be updated; but new features and improved performance will also be coming in the not too distant future. If you find issues with HotCocoa, don't hesitate to open tickets on Github (or try to fix it yourself and send in the patch :)).
- Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet
- Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it
- Fork the project
- Start a feature/bugfix branch
- Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution
- Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
- Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
- No contribution is too small!
