The Objective-C block utilities you always wish you had.

BlocksKit

Blocks in C and Objective-C are downright magical. They make coding easier and potentially quicker, not to mention faster on the front end with multithreading and Grand Central Dispatch. BlocksKit hopes to facilitate this kind of programming by removing some of the annoying - and, in some cases, impeding - limits on coding with blocks.

BlocksKit is a framework and static library for iOS 4.0+ and Mac OS X 10.6+.

Installation

BlocksKit can be added to a project using CocoaPods.

Framework

  • Download a release of BlocksKit.
  • Move BlocksKit.framework to your project's folder. Drag it from there into your project.
  • Add BlocksKit.framework to "Link Binary With Libraries" in your app's target. Make sure your app is linked with CoreGraphics, Foundation, MessageUI, and UIKit.
  • In the build settings of your target or project, change "Other Linker Flags" (OTHER_LDFLAGS) to -ObjC -all_load.
  • Insert #import <BlocksKit/BlocksKit.h> in your project's prefix header.
  • Make amazing software.

Library

  • Download a release of BlocksKit.
  • Move libBlocksKit.a and Headers to your project's folder, preferably a subfolder like "Vendor".
  • In "Build Phases", Drag libBlocksKit.a into your target's "Link Binary With Libraries" build phase.
  • In the build settings of your target or project, change "Other Linker Flags" to -ObjC -all_load. Make sure your app is linked with CoreGraphics, Foundation, MessageUI, and UIKit.
  • Change (or add) to "Header Search Paths" the relative path to BlocksKit's headers, like $(SRCROOT)/Vendor/Headers.
  • Insert #import <BlocksKit/BlocksKit.h>` in your project's prefix header.
