The next version of CoreGTK, version 3.22.0, has been tagged for release! This is the first version of CoreGTK to support GTK+ 3.22. Highlights for this release: Rebased on GTK+ 3.22 New supported GtkWidgets in this release: GtkNativeDialog GtkShortcutsShortcut CoreGTK is an Objective-C language binding for the GTK+ widget toolkit. Like other “core” Objective-C libraries, CoreGTK is designed to be a thin wrapper. CoreGTK is free software, licensed under the GNU LGPL.

CoreGTK 3.18.0 Released!

The next version of CoreGTK, version 3.18.0, has been tagged for release! This is the first version of CoreGTK to support GTK+ 3.18. Highlights for this release: Rebased on GTK+ 3.18 New supported GtkWidgets in this release: GtkActionBar GtkFlowBox GtkFlowBoxChild GtkGLArea GtkModelButton GtkPopover GtkPopoverMenu GtkStackSidebar Reverted to using GCC as the default compiler (but clang can still be used) CoreGTK is an Objective-C language binding for the GTK+ widget toolkit.

CoreGTK 3.10.2 Released!

The next version of CoreGTK, version 3.10.2, has been tagged for release today. Highlights for this release: This is a bug fix release. Corrected issue with compiling CoreGTK on OS X. CoreGTK is an Objective-C language binding for the GTK+ widget toolkit. Like other “core” Objective-C libraries, CoreGTK is designed to be a thin wrapper. CoreGTK is free software, licensed under the GNU LGPL. You can find more information about the project here and the release itself here.

CoreGTK 3.10.1 Released!

The next version of CoreGTK, version 3.10.1, has been tagged for release today. Highlights for this release: Added some missing (varargs) GTK+ functions. This makes it easier to create widgets like the FileChooserDialog. CoreGTK is an Objective-C language binding for the GTK+ widget toolkit. Like other “core” Objective-C libraries, CoreGTK is designed to be a thin wrapper. CoreGTK is free software, licensed under the GNU LGPL. You can find more information about the project here and the release itself here.

CoreGTK 3.10.0 Released!

The next version of CoreGTK, version 3.10.0, has been tagged for release today. Highlights for this release: Move from GTK+ 2 to GTK+ 3 Prefer the use of glib data types over boxed OpenStep/Cocoa objects (i.e. gint vs NSNumber) Base code generation on GObject Introspection instead of a mix of automated source parsing and manual correction Support for GTK+ 3.10 CoreGTK is an Objective-C language binding for the GTK+ widget toolkit.

Adding GTK+ 3 support and building CoreGTK using GObject Introspection

It has been a while since I made any mention of my side project CoreGTK. I’m sure many people can relate that with life generally being very busy it is often hard to find time to work on hobby projects like this. Thankfully while that certainly has slowed the pace of development it hasn’t stopped it outright and now I am just about ready to show off the next update for CoreGTK.

CoreGTK 2.24.0 Released!

The initial version of CoreGTK, version 2.24.0, has been tagged for release today. Features include: Targets GTK+ 2.24 Support for GtkBuilder Can be used on Linux, Mac and Windows CoreGTK is an Objective-C language binding for the GTK+ widget toolkit. Like other “core” Objective-C libraries, CoreGTK is designed to be a thin wrapper. CoreGTK is free software, licensed under the GNU LGPL. You can find more information about the project here and the release itself here.

CoreGTK

A while back I made it my goal to put together an open source project as my way of contributing back to the community. Well fast forward a couple of months and my hobby project is finally ready to be shown the light of day. I give you… CoreGTK CoreGTK is an Objective-C binding for the GTK+ library which wraps all objects descending from GtkWidget (plus a few others here and there).

Objective-C IDE

With no real alternative to Xcode on non-Mac platforms there is a real lack of a genuine development environment for Objective-C. With projects like GNUstep picking up the Objective-C runtime portion of the equation I’ve decided to try my hand at filling the other gap by creating a very simple IDE strictly for Objective-C. My goals were simple: create a basic IDE written in Objective-C that provides syntax highlighting, one button program compilation, and (if I could get it to work) some form of auto-complete or a suggestion system.

Create a GTK+ application on Linux with Objective-C

As sort of follow-up-in-spirit to my older post I decided to share a really straight forward way to use Objective-C to build GTK+ applications. Objective-what? Objective-C is an improvement to the iconic C programming language that remains backwards compatible while adding many new and interesting features. Chief among these additions is syntax for real objects (and thus object-oriented programming). Popularized by NeXT and eventually Apple, Objective-C is most commonly seen in development for Apple OSX and iOS based platforms.
