Hi I've seen similar posts on the forum; but wondering if there's any general update on this.
I've had 2 years away from appcode (one year doing Xamarin, another doing ghastly node.js work) - partly because I wanted to wait for swift to settle before getting back into native swift dev, and partly because xcode is such a turd of an IDE to write code in, that I couldn't bear to do any more iOS development without the code comfort I was used to with appcode.
I figured 2 years would be enough for you guys to get more or less parity with where you were with objective c.
I can give you the benefit of the doubt with the constant changing in swift; but even then, I'm still quite shocked at what is missing:
- Auto imports do not work/not implemented
- Code completion is slow and often doesn't even work (nearly all extensions have no idea about fileprivate vars, etc)
- No auto-generation of init methods (which is a total and utter pita, considering how strict swift is about that)
- No help with description/equality/coding/other framework methods
- Debugger is extremely slow to resolve variables
This is just after a few hours of use; so I imagine I will find many more gaps.
So the question is - how long do you guys think until we can get feature/comfort parity to where we were with objective c support about 4 years ago, when I found appcode to be absolutely heavenly to use every single day.
EDIT: To be clear - this is *not* a complaint; the support that is there is pretty good - it's a genuine question. It's a shame that we can't some how take the handful of positive elements from xcode's swift support and port it into appcode :(
