Best Pods of 2015

Best Pods of 2015

Dev

Dev Pods selected by:

iOS Devs

AFNetworking

Rafał: Constantly updated; even now slightly less code than without it.
Antoni: That’s the obvious one!

Specta + Expecta

Maciek: For doing TDD/BDD. Totally rocking, lightweight libs.

OCMockito

Maciek: Lightweight, powerful, reliable, still maintained.

CocoaLumberjack

Antoni: The golden standard for collecting logs!
Maciek: Awesome logging framework.
Paweł: Easy integration with Crashlytics, easy file logging, predefined log levels.

Masonry

Paweł: Light-weight and still powerful, nice syntax, more consistent than NALayoutConstraints or VFL.

Bolts

Kamil: Simplifies interfacing asynchronous operations. Has a very small mental footprint (abstractions introduced by the library are easy to explain in 5-10 minutes), so it does not steepen the learning curve for newcomers in the project.

Reactive Cocoa

Maciek: It’s a great and powerful programming framework that enables reactive and functional approach in Objective-C. Love it.

MBProgressHUD

Kamil: Easy to use progress indicator that, because of its popularity, your users are already familiar with.

Typhoon

Maciek: Great and flexible dependency injection framework. Configuration is clean, dependencies are clear. Supports swift as well.

FormatterKit

Kamil: Makes outputting “40 seconds ago” or “just now” next to an item on a list not much more complicated than calling a single routine.
