DigitalMe for Mac OS X

September 11, 2007

My blog has grown a little stale, but I now have something exciting to post! During the past couple of months, I’ve been working on building a Mac OS X version of the DigitalMe identity selector. This has been an interesting experience because I’ve learned a lot about CMake, Objective-C, Cocoa, Xcode, Interface Builder, Universal Binaries, and Mac application packaging. I have to admit that I was a little hesitant to dive into the world of Mac GUI programming, mostly because I felt that learning another language (Objective-C) was overkill to facilitate bringing a Mac UI to DigitalMe. However, it turns out that Objective-C is really interesting, very easy to learn, and makes UI development a breeze.

Although it is still very much a “work-in-progress,” I’d would encourage anyone interested in using information cards on the Mac to install DigitalMe and the Firefox plug-in. Feedback and suggestions for enhancements are always welcome.
