This is a play-by-play screencast of me moving a component out of SSToolkit into its own library. I cover setting up a good open source component, writing Core Graphics drawing code, a bit of low-level C stuff, and some of my workflow.
You can find the code so far for this on GitHub: github.com/soffes/SAMGradientView. We’ll be adding a lot more in part 2.
Here are some things I mentioned
Also note, this video is to give you a sense of how I work and hopefully teach you stuff along the way. There are a few edits. Mainly to save you time. I cut out about 12 minutes of me wasting time. There wasn’t anything of value you missed out on I promise. I’m just looking out for your time :)
I’d really love some feedback. Leave a comment here or tweet me at @soffes on Twitter.
