@33MHz I don’t discriminate, I like them both haha
@shawn
@33MHz also, moving is harder than it sounds. Much more than just moving your stuff to another building
@shawn
@33MHz I’m just getting my feet underneath me. Had a little vacation to Oktoberfest again, visiting friends. I’m so bad at steady progress 😬
@shawn
@thedoctor excellent niche find 👍🏼
@shawn
@schmidt_fu haha this reminds me, I was going through some backups this summer and came across some old assets for the book club tumblr. Good times 😊 @jawzt

Ok, I've hit a stride with Auto Layout. I had to grok the process and how to trigger it properly, but I'm enjoying it now. UILayoutGuides are super handy.

Key fact: I'm not using Interface Builder
@shawn
The new interface is functioning nicely. Its made almost entirely with Auto Layout, a first for me. I butted heads with UIKit again while trying to animate shadows. In the end I succeeded though.

@33MHz that took me a bit to figure out haha @rafaelcosta
@shawn
@schmidt_fu ahh that's the term to search for then. Thanks. I can disassemble it myself, I just want it gone really
@shawn
@joe danke!

@33MHz different part of the city. Not too far though. Right now I'm like two minutes from work, vs the future 15 by bike. Sound backwards to move farther away but it will be cheaper

Tripple coffee score #☕️
@shawn
I'm looking into getting rid of a futon. Any one know of a service that does that in Germany? Or the thing to search for to find a local company that does this kind of thing?
@shawn
I'm officially going to be moving. Things will get exciting now.
@shawn
I think I've done it. I can animate the shadowPath property of a UIView's layer alongside spring animations. It's easy to do if you use CAAnimation.begin() and commit() API but I want to use the new UIViewPropertyAnimator.

Breakfast time! …at 6pm
@shawn
I made some big layout changes for the root view. I can definitely get rid of a bunch of code but I also need to rethink landscape and some button placement. It's always better to have a real working interface in your hands.
@shawn
@papierzeit wow, is the show already coming out?
@shawn
I made some noticeable progress styling post streams and stock UIKit bits today. Here's an early idea for the dark theme [imgur.com]
@shawn
I got fed up with Go so now themes are really coming along. Plus I pulled the plug and switched to the Xcode 9 beta (and Swift 4) last night. The editor is buggy but the scrolling is so much better.
