Have you ever wanted to develop an IDE? Do you want to dig inside the internals of Swift, Objective-C, or C++? Want to bring new code generation and refactoring features into the iOS world (oh, yes, and macOS as well)?
We on the AppCode team have lots of incredibly challenging tasks for you! Right now the following positions are open in Munich, Saint-Petersburg, Moscow, and Novosibirsk:
Two weeks ago we released AppCode 2017.2 and now it’s time to share our plans for the next release!
We’d like to thank everyone who evaluated AppCode during the Early Access Program and shared their feedback and suggestions in our Twitter, blog and support channel, and especially to those who submitted issues or feature requests to our tracker. Several evaluators deserve free 1-year subscriptions and here they are:
Raphael Reitzig (YouTrack: reitzig.1)
Ralph Bergmann (YouTrack: dasralph)
Fabian Ehrentraud (YouTrack: fabb)
We’ll send each of you guys a personal message with the details on how to claim your license (if you don’t get an email from us within a week, ping us here in the comments).
What to expect in 2017.3
The next release will feature enhancements in the following key areas:
AppCode 2017.2 is here, so download and try it right now! The patch update is also available if you are using a previous 2017.1.3 version (if you’ve already installed AppCode 2017.2 RC2 build, then simply keep using it, since it’s the same as the released one).
We are approaching release, so AppCode 2017.2 RC2 build (172.3317.89) is available for download on our site. Note that build requires an active subscription.
The following issue is fixed in this build:
No ability to extract method with return statement inside closure (OC-15770)
Due to a number of reports about weird behavior of indexing/symbols building progress and sporadic appearance of “Indices are not ready” message we decided to revert the fix for OC-15714. We are targeting to have a better solution for this in future AppCode versions.
We also disabled inspection for unimplemented protocol members (OC-12701) since there were false intentions in some cases (e.g. OC-15380). The inspection will be restored as soon as we resolve related issues.
AppCode 2017.2 Release Candidate build (172.3317.73) is available for download on our site (if using previous 2017.2 EAP build, the patch update is also available). The following issues are fixed in this build:
New AppCode 2017.2 EAP (build 172.3317.17) is available for download on our site (if using previous 2017.2 EAP build, the patch update is also available).
Extract Method for Swift
This build brings one of the most important features from our roadmap, an initial implementation of Extract Method refactoring for Swift! Select the code you want to extract, press ⌥⌘M, and type the method name:
Click on the row with parameter name to change it or add an internal name:
Change the method/function visibility as you want:
Press enter and have your code replaced with the method or function call you have just created:
Note, that some issues still exist and we are working on them.
Besides, this build also brings support for Xcode 9 documentation format, fixes the issue when test output was empty when running UI tests with Xcode 9 set in AppCode preferences, and addresses some regressions found during our testing.
