    Mac IDE to use for C++ on M1 Mac

    I am a new owner of M1 Mac Mini. I am just learning some C++ programming and sometimes leetcoding. I noticed that one can't use code::blocks on m1 natively and I think eclipse/vs community are just a bit too heavy for what I am working on. xcode is really complicated. For C++ pros on this...

    Mac Is Swift getting slower?

    I learned Swift a few years back and created a few simple iOS, MacOS apps, and also did some hybrid C++/Obj C/Swift coding using Djinni. Coding is more of a sideline / hobby for me, and I tend to be project-focused rather than wedded to a single language / platform. At the time I was coding in...

However it had to come the day I had to move beyond that soft code beach and...

    Mac Wrapping Objective-C code in C++ library

    My objective is simple: I wish to write a library that exposes a C++ class, but calls Obj-C code behind the scenes. I wish to write the code such that, as far as a C++ programmer and his or her favorite compiler care, it's all C++. I see people putting C++ & Objective-C code in the same .h...
