Over the past couple of weeks there have been some pretty significant changes made to how the WordPress for iOS app is being developed. We’ve decided to start modularizing the application into components that can be shared or reused in other apps. The idea behind this is that contributors can help out on the pieces of the app and not have to really understand how the whole app works. We’re going to be updating the handbook and project READMEs soon – but this is the official start to the roll out. The first two components are the stats view controller and the post editor. There is a third project that contains shared components – a necessary evil.
Main app: https://github.com/wordpress-mobile/WordPress-iOS
Shared items: https://github.com/wordpress-mobile/WordPress-iOS-Shared
We’re using CocoaPods right now for dependency management and distribution. Soon the component projects will have example projects built in and will support CocoaPod’s “try” feature.
