Tigerbears has introduced Objectify 1.0, a new Mac application for Mac and iOS developers that creates Cocoa class implementations based on JSON content.
Objectify saves developers time and effort by building customizable model classes from JSON content, whether from a web service or a local source, according to Bill Kunz, founder of tigerbears and developer of Objectify. These classes can be exported as Objective-C source code, ready to be used in the developer’s editor of choice.
JSON is becoming the de facto standard data format for web APIs (application programming interfaces) and is used in thousands of applications on the Mac, iPhone and iPad. Modeling this content in software is a time-consuming chore for iOS and Mac developers that invites bugs and heartache until now, says Kunz.
Objectify saves Cocoa developers time and effort by automatically building customizable model classes from JSON content, he adds. . These classes can be exported as Objective-C source code files, ready to be used in the developer’s development environment of choice.
Objectify is compatible with all Intel-based Macs running Mac OS X 10.6 or higher. It costs US$19.99 for a single-user license and is available for purchase from the Objectify website (http://tigerbears.com/objectify/) or the Mac App Store. Free 14-day trial versions are also available from the Objectify website.
