MulleObjC

💎 A collection of Objective-C root classes for mulle-objc

MulleObjC supplies the most basic runtime components to build a foundation on top of it. MulleObjC fundamentally depends on standard C libraries only (f.e. no <unistd.h>)

Build Status Release Version
Build Status Community tag Build Status

Objects

  • NSAutoreleasePool - garbage collection
  • NSCoder - object serialization
  • NSObject - the root class of everything
  • NSLock - locking for threading
  • NSRecursiveLock - recursive locking for threading
  • NSInvocation - method call serialization
  • NSMethodSignature - method description
  • NSProxy - the other root class of everything :=)
  • NSThread - threads

Protocols

  • NSCoding - object serialization
  • NSCopying - object copying
  • NSFastEnumeration - support for for ... in loops
  • NSLocking - support for for ... in loops
  • NSObject - for objects that don't want to behave like NSObject but can't be them
  • MulleObjCClassCluster - enables classes to act as class clusters
  • MulleObjCException - enabled a class to act as an exception
  • MulleObjCRuntimeObject - documents the minimum required id superset
  • MulleObjCSingleton - enables classes to produce singletons
  • MulleObjCTaggedPointer - enables classes to use tagged pointers

It does all the interfacing with the mulle-objc runtime. Any library code above MulleObjC ideally, should not be using the mulle-objc runtime directly. Creating a foundation on top of mulle-objc without using MulleObjC is a foolhardy endeavor IMO.

MulleObjC must be compiled with the mulle-clang compiler, or a compiler which supports the metaABI required for the mulle-objc runtime.
