Open source software is the kind of thing where you can say “can someone please do this thing?” and they’ll answer “well, why not you?” That’s how I came to be the person creating the XCode projects for the Adobe Source Libraries. I wanted this done because they use CodeWarrior 9 and I haven’t upgraded (nor do I plan to).
Making the projects means more than just making the projects, of course. There are the CodeWarrior vs gcc compiler issues to be worked out, especially in such template-heavy code as this is. But today I finally got the main demo app building and running properly, and I think my stuff is going to be in the next ASL release (1.0.2).
There are some really cool ideas in ASL, and I’m looking forward to using them. There are still some issues and some areas to be fleshed out more, but it’s looking really good and I think the fact that it has Adobe behind it means it’s not going to fade away like some open source projects do.
Speaking of which, if anyone thinks I’ve given up on Volley, I haven’t. I’ve been busy with other stuff, but I’ll come back to it. It’s an idea that I still very much believe in.
