If you like drinking beer and building iOS apps, it is very likely that you will enjoy this group. We created this meetup so that we could get together with fellow like minded iOS developers, in a relaxed and unstructured environment. The plan is simple, get everyone together to talk some tech, drink some beers, worship all things Timothy D. Cook, and maybe write a little bit of code.
the following is a talk I'd like to propose for your audience.
Multi Git repository Xcode projects with the Repo tool
As we get used to deliver many iOS applications, it's highly possible that every new application reuses portions of existing ones (e.g., the sound system, animation transitions, etc.)
Is there any way that we can "see" reusable source code as part of our applications, while merging its changes in their own repos? That way, any improvement we do, would be available to other apps that aggregate that code, by just catching the latest changes up.
Google Repo is an enhancement to Git that enables multi-repository coordination. That way, we can easily get the entire code base, debug indistinctly application code or library code (e.g., step-into) while making sure that changes to the reusable code base don't need to be back-ported to existing applications.
In this talk, we'll see how the Repo tool works. How it can be easily configured for general cases or for particular needs. This talk includes live demos and shareable code that attendees can fork for their own tests.
(Special needs: Internet connection with access to GitHub.)
